Ooh very mysterious!!! And those look so cool!!
Look up a species known as the Giant Oarfish: that'll be the real-life sea serpent :o)
"Serpentstones" is such an intriguing word -Ii shall have to use that somewhere!
Hey, I love the photo. Hadn't heard of them being called Serpentstones before - that's cool! :)
Hi Kate,Ah yes, I reckon they are ready to come back to life.Of course, when it comes to Sea Serpents, or I guess, Lake Serpents, 'Ogopogo' is my friend and needs more recognition :)Take care and happy writing.In kindness, Gary
Ooh, so much fun to wonder about these things. How do we know that dinosaurs weren't really dragons?!
I like the first explanation better : )
What, you mean they're not really serpents? *sad face*
Oooh - off to check out this 'Giant Oarfish' and 'Ogopogo' - never heard of that one!I agree Simon - 'Serpentstones' does have a rather magical sound to it...And sorry Sue - they used to be serpents - but somebody turned them into stone ;-)
I agree with Simon. I'll definitely have to use Serpentstones in my next book.
Reminds me of Lyme Regis in South Devon!
Intriguing. I like where your mind is leading us Kate...
Ah Ellie - that's because it is :-)
Serpent stones slips off the tongue. I am off to look up giant oarfish too.
Oh that's so cool! :)
it was our whitby saint hilda that killed the snakes and turned them into ammonites. st cuthbert cursed them posthumously so their heads fell off.also: envy. the biggest i've found hereabouts are 16 cm across
Please share you thoughts, I'd love to hear from you....
