please excuse the photos....they are taken through glass....
While in Old Town San Diego, we decided to tour the Historical Whaley House.
Reason 1: it's haunted. I'm not sure if it's haunted, or "haunted", but it's been on Ghost Hunters and everything! Still not sure if I believe it (would you?), but they had story after story to back it up.
Reason 2: I love museums. It's true. As kids, every vacation we took we always ended up in some type of museum--they are my dad's favorite place. I guess that it kind of rubbed off on me.
Reason 3: Old House. I love old houses! I love old things! I had to see it.
So mostly I was there for the old house part, and if we saw a ghost or two....bonus!
I LOVED the house.
How cute is this kitchen?? AMAZING!!
I loved the simplicity of every room. There wasn't stuff crammed everywhere. Now I realize that no one actually LIVES here (except for the alleged ghosts), but I really do believe that we all live so spoiled and have WAY too much stuff.
Although I will say that I am not a fan of the giant portraits in every room. The adults always looked ok, but the children looked like tiny men with wigs and children's clothing on.
So that was that. We spent a good amount of time in there--pretending it was our house, and I was wishing I could take, I mean buy, a few souvenirs. We might have laughed a little bit at the "ghosts", and Robby may or may not have wanted to take some long exposure photos of himself writing scary ghost messages with his phone.
So we left, with a dream of an 1860s home, and still not believing in ghosts.
That is, until.....
dun dun DUN!!!
We snapped this picture on the beach and it appears that a ghost made it's way into our photo and has taken over Robby's body. And what is that mysterious orb in the upper left corner????
Are you afraid?? Do ghost stories scare you?? Do you think we are cursed?
