Bobby O’Connor was in a daze. He was reliving his recent talk with his editor. A sinking, nauseous feeling had come over him. His reverie was broken when he started to overhear the conversation that Ryan and Monique had just had at the next table. The two fishermen that they were previously talking to had now left the Tim Horton’s. Bobby O’Conner overheard the word Ogopogo mentioned. He was listening to Ryan and Monique recap their adventure today.
Bobby moved his chair closer to Ryan and Monique’s table. He extended his hand to Ryan. “I know I don’t know you guys, but I couldn’t help but overhear your conversation. I’m Bobby O’Conner.”
“Yeah, I recognize you from your picture in The Kelowna Sun. You’re the sports reporter,” said Ryan shaking Bobby’s hand.
“That’s me. Can I join you? I’d like to hear more about what happened to you guys today.”
“Well, Ryan and I were jogging along a trail that overlooked Lake Okanagan,” said Monique.
“Monique told me to stop and take a look at the lake. There was something strange in the water,” added Ryan.
“We looked out upon the lake,” Monique continued and saw a large black serpent like object moving quickly in our direction.”
“Right. It appeared to move by rapid undulations. It was obviously a living creature of some kind” said Ryan.
“It sounds like the most common descriptions people give of of Ogopogo. Do you think it really was Ogopogo you saw?” asked Bobby.
“If it wasn’t, I don’t know what it was. It really shook us up to see it,” said Monique.
“What did the fishermen see?” asked Bobby.
“They saw something that looked like a fast moving log, but they were a lot further away than we were,” answered Monique.
“Yeah, we showed them the photos that Monique took. Unfortunately, the creature doesn’t look very big in the pictures although in one of them you can see it raise its head and neck,” added Ryan.
The two fishermen were kind of arguing over whether or not our pictures were of Ogopogo, said Monique. “Henry was skeptical but Harvey believes we really may have photographed Ogopogo.”
