2009 – Another Jefferson visit

This past summer, we again, went to Jefferson, Texas.  Yep – we stayed at the Busy B Ranch, and yep, in cabin #2.  It’s my favorite cabin.   I think it has the BEST view of the lake.  This year, it was kind of eerie – we were the ONLY peeps in the area.  However, we had our fun too.  We shot off fireworks, fed the raccoons, burned the ribs, and went to visit Jefferson.  Naturally,  I HAD to do the Jefferson Ghost Walk.  This year, Michael sat out, but Cameron remained the trooper – she went with me.  I caught a few orbs at the Jefferson Hotel, and Cameron swears that she felt someone tugging at her clothes at one of the houses.  Regardless if there is some logical explanation, we can be sure – we’ll do the Ghost Walk again.  Oh, and by the way, my FAVORITE purchase over the weekend was my coffee mug from the Jefferson General Store.  I LOVE IT!!!!

Enjoy the pictures!!!

The Jefferson, TX Ghost Walk

Ok – this was so much fun to do.  We saw a few signs around town and decided to sign up for the Ghost Walk.  The guide is a local historian and told us up front that her only role is to tell the history of the buildings and will follow-up with some of the local stories.  The tour was a night – it was hot and muggy.  My little girl was all for the Ghost Walk – until it was time to do the Ghost Walk!!  My husband complained the entire time – he was hot, it was muggy, and he didn’t want to walk around.  OY!  Our friends that went to Jefferson with us – I’m glad they were game!!  I didn’t hear them complain at all!

We had a few armature ghost hunters with us and they tried taping EVPs (electronic voice phenomenon), but all that got on tape were the little boys that would NOT stop talking. 

At one point in the evening, she told us we would come to an area of town that just gives everyone the “heebie jeebies”.  She further said that she wasn’t going to tell us the spot – that we would just know.  She was right!  I was standing next to her and we both felt a chill & the hair on our arms just stood up – talk about the goose bumps!!! 

Before we went on the tour – we stopped by the local cemetery.  A friend wanted me to take a picture of Diamond Bessie’s Grave.  The cemetery was way to big and it was getting too dark to find it.  So, I just snapped a few pictures.  The bright spot you see above the sign is NOT the moon.  The mood was behind us.  That my friends – is an orb.  Maybe it was Diamond Bessie saying “hi!”

Take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think!!!

What did YOU do over summer vacation?

Well, I mostly took the summer off.  It was just too too hot to do anything!  Over the 4th of July, we went to Jefferson and stayed at our favoite place – Jefferson, Texas.  I just love small towns.  Over the weekend, I went to town to hunt for vintage cameras.  I decided that I wanted to start collecting them.  Well, I guess they’re in hot demand – I never could find any.  Well, I take that back – there were several 70’s versions.  That’s just not vintage enough for me!!!  I want true antique cameras.  So please, if you come across any – I certainly would appreciate it. 

I’m attaching a few small town shots.  I’ll have more to post tomorrow – my family and I attending the “Ghost Walk” and I’m convinced I caught a few ghosts w/my camera!!!
