Last week I slathered my scales in SPF 60 and explored Busch Gardens Williamsburg under gloriously blue April skies instead of the twinkling December darkness of its Christmas Town celebration. Although I screamed gleefully during my rides on all four roller coasters in the amusement park, my favorite was the most ancient beast, the Loch Ness Monster. It was the first coaster in the world to feature interlocking loops at its opening over 30 years ago. And wow, that first steep drop toward the Rhine River is still just as thrilling as when I was a kid.
Today I was inspired to go questing for the creature through the deep waters of Etsy. Nessie isn't quite as elusive as I feared - look at these amazing handmade creations I discovered!
