Boo! St. Augustine Lighthouse

Today, I want to concentrate on something close to our hearts here at the Hotel Thompson – the St. Augustine Lighthouse.  We’ve watched television shows highlighting the paranormal activity here – have you seen any?

During the 1870’s construction began on the lighthouse tower.  The superintendent, Hezekiah Pittee, had two daughters drown in an accident.  The girls liked to get in a work trolley and roll down to the waterfront.  One day, the trolley didn’t stop and capsized into the water drowning the two girls.  Since then, reports have been made of seeing two little girls standing on the catwalk.

There have also been reports of moving shadows, voices and unexplained sounds.  Other people have reported seeing a dark figure on the stairway inside of the lighthouse.  On one show of Ghost Hunters, Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes caught a dark figure on the steps moving and a woman’s voice asking for help.  It was haunting to say the least.

Reports have also been made of the smell of cigar smoke and a man in the basement area of the keepers house.  This man is believed to be a Civil War hero and a former lighthouse keeper, William Ham.

The lighthouse is now open to the public.  The St. Augustine lighthouse even offers what they call a Dark of the Moon Tour that allows access into the lighthouse and keepers house at night. During this time, you are given a glow stick to light your way so that you may investigate on your own.  Any takers?  I’m game.

Shivers – today’s post brings me shivers just thinking about it.  You’ve almost made it through with me the entire 31 days of Spook.  I’m so proud of you!

Paranormal Piggy

Today is the perfect day. There is a Ghost Hunters marathon on the SyFy channel all day today. Aaww – that is piggy heaven. Watching our favorite show snuggled on the couch with mommy… Okay there might be a little shaking going on. Some of those ghosts can be frightening! But I’m not scared as long as I have my mommy.

I think there will be some popcorn involved in this little marathon later in the day. Have you seen this show? I just love Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson. ❤

They even have a Barky thing on the show called Mattie that helps. I think I could help too. They could call me the paranormal piggy!

Did I mention that it’s not raining for a change. There’s no wind. And the weather is perfect – not too cold and not too hot.

What are your plans this fine Sunday??
