Gettysburg – Part 1 – A Ghostly Tour

After leaving Washington D.C, we headed to Richmond, VA for our niece’s wedding. It was a beautiful day and she was a gorgeous bride. The day was filled with love and beauty.

After the wedding, we were on the move once again, this time to Gettysburg, PA. Our first Gettysburg experience was a ghost tour of the town. There are lots of ghosts and lost souls roaming the Gettysburg area, and ghost tours are a big thing, especially at this time of year with Halloween just around the corner.

Our guide. She was very interesting and knowledgeable.

These are the only ghostly encounters we had that night. The people of Gettysburg really get into the spirit of the Halloween season.

We had a fun evening, and at the very least, we learned some of the local history. However, we did have an encounter the next night after we returned from our trip to Amish Country. On our second night in Gettysburg, we had dinner at a local restaurant and were strolling around town afterwards. As we were strolling the sidewalks, I smelled the smells of a cigar and men’s cologne following us around, and NO ONE was around us at all. At the time, we had the sidewalk to ourselves. Our visitor stayed with us for a couple of blocks, then as suddenly as he appeared, he was gone, just like that. Of course Larry isn’t into this stuff and didn’t sense anything. But I did.

‘Tis the season of the spirits. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
