All Hallows Eve and a Ghostly tale...

In the woods near my home stands a tall, foreboding is said that these woods are haunted...shall we make our way to the house at the top of the hill? Look there, amongst the trees - I'm game if you are...if you believe local legend, a witch lives here...follow me...


Okay, if you don't want to be scared, look away now, for the following tale is true! A couple of years ago Georgia had a school excursion to The Old Melbourne Gaol, which is an historical jail in the city of Melbourne. It is in fact where our famous bushranger, Ned Kelly was hanged on 11th November, 1880. He was only one of 135 people that met their death it's fair to say that many ghosts walk these hallways.

Anyway, back to my story...Georgia and her friends entered one of the cells, and Georgia took a photo of her friend by the window. When she looked at the pic on her digital camera, she saw what appeared to be a head coming out of her friend's shoulder. She and her friends screamed, and ran like the wind out of there!

Now, look closely at the photo, and tell me you don't see a face? I tell you, this seriously creeped us all out...I swear to you that this is the genuine article! I researched the jail online, and found that there are many stories of ghost sightings at the jail.

Oh, I've scared myself all over again - you have no idea...we don't even like keeping this photo!

Sleep well tonight, for tomorrow is Halloween, and although we don't really celebrate it downunder in Australia, I always like to create a little magic of my own...
