About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

Emily Morgan 1-21-12

This is in the main Lobby of the Emily Morgan Hotel.
We did not really have any experiences in this hotel with such reports of shadows, odors, and other stories of paranormal activity.  This is about the only picture we got that had anything interesting in it.


The Emily Morgan Hotel was once the Medical Arts Building which was constructed in 1924.  It is one of the most recognizable buildings in San Antonio.  The tower is 13 stories tall and made of reinforced concrete and glazed terra cotta.  The Gothic revival influence of the period is quite noticeable in this building.  One of the most interesting features are the terra cotta gargoyles that depict various medical aliments such as toothaches, etc. on the outside of the building.


The 7th and 12th floors seem to be the most active.  Reports of noises, smells of alcohol, and being touched are common on the 7th Floor.  ( but just our luck, we didn't feel a thing)




 
This is the view of the Emily Morgan from the Alamo.(RIGHT)  It is a very beautiful hotel in any light.











We also visited the Alamo around 2:00am and again didn't get anything exciting.  Guess that the way it goes being a ghost hunter....sometimes you win...and sometimes you spend a lot of time taking pictures of nothing. lol
