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 37 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 explainable 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.


Ghosts-Really Cool places to start looking...

So, I am going to be posting about a lot of different places, but tonight I am going to start off with just two really cool places I think you guys will like a lot and I don't think you would be disappointed in the "ghostly" activity.  I will be posting more in the future.  I have just been to SO MANY really cool places it's hard talk about them all in one night.

1st-  One of my FAVORITE places ever....great pics(orbs, mist, ect) and lots of paranormal activity is...of course....The Alamo in San Antonio Tx.

Originally named Mission San Antonio de Valero, the Alamo served as home to missionaries and their Indian converts for nearly seventy years. Construction began on the present site in 1724. In 1793, Spanish officials secularized San Antonio's five missions and distributed their lands to remaining Indian residents.  A small band of Texans held out for thirteen days against the Centralist army of General Antonio L√≥pez de Santa Anna.  Although the Alamo finally fell in the early morning hours of March 6, 1836.

As with any battle ground, there are lots of spirits that remain behind...for so many different reasons.  Some because they died so tragically that they don't even realize they are dead, some because they knew this place as home and don't want to leave, some because maybe they feel they have "unfinished" business...such as the battle itself....maybe they are still "battling".  Who knows?  The one thing I can tell you is that there is so much to see and do around the Alamo, you need MORE than just one night.  Reports of soldiers, canons, cries, guns and many more sounds are found here.  And Pics.....Some of my most interesting and favorite photos are from the Alamo. 

So, pack up the EMF meters, K-2's and your camera and head to San Antonio for the weekend.

One of my FAVORITE all time photos!

We could not see him at the time, but the
girl to the right was actually there.

2nd- As long as your at the Alamo, DO NOT miss the opportunity to go to the Menger Hotel right next door. 

The Menger is located adjacent to the Alamo and first opened in 1859, just 23 years after the battle at the Alamo, by owner William Menger and architect John Fries. 

Down through the years such personalities such as Theodore Roosevelt, Babe Ruth, Sidney Lanier, Mae West, Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, and Sarah Bernhardt stayed there, some more than once. Ask any employee or regular visitor to the Menger and chances are good you'll hear about more than one ghostly encounter that takes place here.
For me, I LOVE this place!!! I wrote my first paranormal paper on this hotel.  I had soooo many experiences here....footsteps walking up behind me when no one was there, voices, the elevator opening and closing on its own...and even a photo with a picture of a face in the courtyard, I believe to be Guston Borlum the sculpture of Mount Rushmore.  DON'T pass this one up!!!
