"Nessie," a creative public art project, was dreamed up by Kevin Loretzen and Marguerite Garth for Saturday's recycled beach art event. "This was made from all found objects, mostly tires," said Garth, an award-winning fine art photographer and writer from North Cove. Loretzen, of Raymond, was the creator of the dragon art project in Seattle's International District. The Off The Beach Recycled Art day at Veterans Field in Long Beach was a collaborative effort supported by several groups, including the Peninsula Performing Arts Center, the Peninsula Acoustic Music Foundation, the Pacific County Economic Development Council and the Tokeland-North Cove Chamber of Commerce.

Here is a brief history of Nessie: Nessie is a large sea creature believed to inhabit Scotland's Loch Ness.  In 1933 the Loch Ness monster's legend began to grow. At the time, a road next to the Loch Ness was finished, offering an unobstructed view of the lake. In April a couple saw an enormous animal—which they compared to a "dragon or prehistoric monster"—and after it crossed their car's path, it disappeared into the water. The incident was reported in a Scottish newspaper, and numerous sightings followed. In December 1933 a British newspaper commissioned Marmaduke Wetherell, a big-game hunter, to locate the sea serpent. Along the lake's shores, he found large footprints that he believed belonged to "a very powerful soft-footed animal about 20 feet [6 meters] long." However, upon closer inspection, zoologists at the Natural History Museum determined that the tracks were a hoax.
