It was a dark and rainy night….. well, dark and windy and the location was Camden, Maine. I joined a group of intrepid ghost seekers lead by The Lady in the Red Cloak who makes her way to various Maine towns giving tours – the theme of the tours is haunted places, with a good dose of obscure history thrown in. As we made our way through Camden’s back streets, I learned that of the 50 states, Maine holds the distinction of being the 13th when it comes to UFO sightings.
As we stood before the Camden Carriage House, The Lady explained that a tradition of sorts was to throw old shoes between the walls of houses in an effort to “kick the devil out”! . At this particular house, several pairs of children’s shoes were found. Next door, a ghost resides – this was the one who saw the UFO and recorded it in her journal – when she was alive of course.
The Lady in the Red Cloak said she does not generally talk about malevolent ghosts; so if you are looking for a “spirited” evening with no scary after effects, try one of these tours.
boo for now, Diana
