Ryan and Monique jogged close to each other as they were both in good physical condition. After about five minutes had elapsed Monique glanced to her right to take a look at Lake Okanogon. About fifty metres away she saw a large object moving in the water. It’s shape appeared to be cylindrical and its color was black. To Monique it appeared to be a living creature and was definitely not a boat. Monique stopped jogging abruptly and turned to Ryan. “Look Ryan. What’s that in the lake?”
Ryan stopped running and turned his head to look toward the lake. “I’m not sure, but it’s definitely some kind of animal.”
“Look it’s moving in undulations and looks like some kind of whale,” noted Monique.
“As far as I know there aren’t any whales in Lake Okanagon. At least any that look like that,” said Ryan.
Ryan had a powerful pair of binoculars in his back pack. He took them out and got a close up look at the creature in the water. Ryan felt chills in his body when he saw the animal’s head surface. “I know what it is now,” he said in a shaky voice.
“What is it?” asked Monique.
“It’s Ogopogo. The First Nations people called it the lake demon.”
“You mean it’s the real version of the toy things they sell to tourists in the local stores?” asked Monique.
“It has to be. I’ve never scene a fish or other animal that looks like that creature in the lake. Do you have a camera, Monique?”
“Yes, I do. I have a digital Samsung in my back pack. I’ll take a picture of it.”
Monique quickly took out her camera and snapped two pictures of the animal. Just after she took the pictures she saw a fishing boat about fifty metres away. The creature then submerged back into the lake.
“Wow, you took those pictures right on time,” said Ryan. “Let’s have a look how they turned out.”
Ryan and Monique both studied the preview pictures on her camera. The creature appeared to be very small and a great distance away.
“Well, your pictures will never stand as positive scientific evidence of the existence of Ogopogo, but at least we know what we saw and have pictures to back it up,” said Ryan.
“Did you believe in Ogopogo before you saw him today?’ asked Monique.
“The truth is that I did although this was my first actual sighting of the creature. My dad and I have both been cryptozoology buffs for years.”
“What’s cryptozology? asked Monique.
“It’s the study of unknown species like Bigfoot and The Loch Ness Monster.”
