Nessie Onshore

What does Nessie really look like?  Below is an early sighting of the Loch Ness Monster on land, which, to some degree, helps answer the above question.

In 1879, a group of children, apparently at the North shore near a graveyard, observed a strange creature coming down a hillside to Loch Ness.  The color of the creature was that of an elephant; gray.  It had a small head which was turning from side to side on a long neck.  It "waddled" into the water.  This sighting was related to Edward Smith by a woman who related it to him as a childhood memory.
