We arrived in St. Augustine late Friday night and took a Ghost and Gravestones Tour. The highlight was going into the Old Jail at night. We didn’t realize it would involve actors though! Kaitlyn had a tight grip on me! One of the older women kept scooting closer to us and said “don’t mind me, I’m just using your children for protection!”
On the ghost tour they talked about how the restaurant was haunted. The women’s bathroom used to be the bedroom of the woman who owned the house. Supposedly if you take selfies with your back to the mirror sometimes the ghost shows up in the mirror. I broke my I will never take a selfie rule to give it a shot. No ghost though
That night was when they lit the Christmas tree and all of the city Christmas lights. I also met up with an old friend from girl scouts who I hadn’t seen since high school. It was great catching up and introducing her to Kevin and the girls.
And the still unexplainable ghost photo! See if you can spot it! The photo was taken without flash. When enlarged, it looks exactly like a woman with a veil holding a baby. After we took it we checked. There was nothing there that could explain an image like that!
The next morning we went over to the lighthouse. Kaitlyn insisted on climbing to the top. Kevin was lucky enough to take her up. They have a rule that no one can be carried up the stairs and since I’m terrified of heights Kevin was elected. Kenzie and I did get to step inside for a picture at the bottom of the stairs though. And we all got to tour the museum in the old Keeper’s House.
