HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Last October on our trip to Half Moon Bay, we took a couple of little trips to the cemeteries. I am fascinated by old cemeteries, which we don't have where I live. They are much more modern with the flat little plates on the ground. No unique headstones. Now both of these cemeteries were deserted when we were walking around, but I swear in the one picture there is a GHOST!!! Click to enlarge and tell me if you see what looks like a guy standing near a headstone toward the back of the picture on the right. There was nobody there that day besides my husband and I.







As you walk around and read the headstones you can't help but wonder who these people were.?What were they doing in Northern California back then???


Next we decided to have dinner at the Moss Beach Distillery. It is known to be haunted. That is me standing out in front of the restaurant. Do you see all of the orbs? I have been told that orbs are the energy of spirits. There were no other pictures from this trip with orbs. SPOOKY!!!

There are stories of a lady that is seen on the beach. She is also seen in the restaurant wearing a blue dress from the 1930's.



I hope you are all having a spooky Halloween!!!

Enjoy the day, and the trick or treaters. Enjoy the ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the occasional witch.

Have a hauntingly good time!!!

I don't see anyone! I love cemetaries. For a while there I was very into taking black & white photos of them. I was thinking of doing a cemetary picture book :)

Have a spooktacular day!!

Too spooky. I'm try to see the man, not sure if I do, I want to... because I do believe in spirts. If you ever visit Sacramento there is the wonderful Old City Cemetery..very pretty and lots of history.

Happy Halloween witches to you. Linda

Your daughter is such a beautiful bright and you look so pretty too! Congratulations and best wishes from Germany!

I'm glad the fires didn't came too close to your house and all went well for you. I was thinking about all my California blogging friends a lot when I watched the fire news and was very concerned.

Happy Halloween to you dear Rosemary!

We used to go to cemeteries all of the time when I was younger. Popular place to have a few beers. Sickos that we were.

Happy Halloween!
Love,

I had to look hard but I did see what looks like a man...spooky. I too love cemeteries and reading the headstones are like a mini history lesson.
The picture with the orbs is wild...but you looked beautiful! : )
The spirits must have wanted to check you out!

I hope you enjoyed the day. I kept going back to see your house online. I just adored it all...what a special place and such fun on Halloween!

Hugs to you!
Sue

Happy Halloween! Great ghostie pictures!!!

The Gold Rush was happening around this time. I enlarged the photos to look at lifespans. So many people around this time lived short lives. So sad.

I get orbs in many of my pictures because of the way flash integrates with the atmosphere. Sometimes, it really messes up photos.

Thanks for sharing. I live in Southern, CA. Where is this graveyard?

Tootles, KJ

Hi, Rosemary! I've been trying so hard to play catchup & visit everyone. There is just not enough hours in the day to get it all done.

Love the wedding photos! Beautiful bride & handsome groom & mom & dad sure look spiffy too. I know you are so proud, what a beautiful day it looked like for all of you. Your DD is just so pretty, lovely wedding. Big congrats from me!

Hugs,
Rhoda

I love to go to old cemeteries, too, Rosemary! It's interesting reading the headstones and imagining the stories of those people.

Love the photo's. Cemetary's can be really wonderful to walk through. All those stories and memories. Very thought provoking.

Thrift Shop Romantic said...

Ah, fun photos-- I went looking for your ghostly man, but didn't spot him.

In taking pics in our local cemetery once day I had a small heart attack when I heard this creepy rustle of someone walking, leaves crackling, didn't see anyone and...

Ah, a deer!

(So now I think of it, I guess that would be a "hart attack"... ha...)

Michelle said...

Great photos! I love ghosts and spirits! I have a ghost in my house which can be fun.

Michelle said...

Ok, here's my ghost story that you asked for! I live in a home that was built in the 1920's. The ghost makes her presence known when we renovate things in the home. We hear her walking in the hallway between the 2 bedrooms. Our home has an alarm and the motion sensor will be set off when no one is in the house and its always in the bedroom!

Have a great evening.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

I think I see him...he has a large head? I DO see all of the orbs though. I had one in my former house that came up the stairs and darted into my youngest's bedroom. My oldest son saw it, too. He said, "Mommy, what was that!!??" So, I know I hadn't lost my mind! There were lots of orbs all around you!!

xo,
Becky

I'm quite late with this, but I did want to let you know that I really like the pictures of the head stones. It does look like a spooky place to visit. Also wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your Halloween decorating in the weeks leading up to the actual event. It was so fun to see what you were doing and to get ideas from you.
