Saquie: The Newest Sea Monster

Many people think you can only find sea monsters in Loch Ness. Many people are wrong. Everywhere I go, I run into sea monsters.

For example, about a year-and-a-half ago I had an encounter with Mystie, the Enders Island Sea Monster. Also, in 1977 some poor girl in British Columbia named Erin had the dual terror of coming face-to-face with a monster called Ogopogo, immediately followed by some cheesy 1970s synthesizer music.

Today I had the pleasure of hanging at a company outing at Saquish Beach on the Plymouth/Duxbury line. It was a blast. It was even more exciting when the waves started rippling. Nobody could figure out why. I suggested that a sea monster was lurking, and sure enough, before we knew it we had a visitor.

Luckily, he went back into the sea and nobody was hurt.
