On Saturday mornings Greg and I usually take a nice long walk around our new community. We have only lived here less than a month and a half, so we like to get out and get to know it a bit. Each Saturday we take a different direction to see something we haven’t seen before. So last Saturday we headed out on a new route.
We were thoroughly enjoying ourselves and not paying attention to how far we were going. This is due mainly to the fact that we were walking along a road that was heavy on the vegetation and had many cool butterflies. There were about four different kinds and Greg took the time to explain what each one was as we strolled by.
So we get pretty far down this one road and I am thinking, humm we have walked pretty far already, I wonder if this road will cut through to the main drag. So we turned right and headed down this heavily forested road. It was quite nice, accept for the unfortunate people who decided to use the road as a dumping ground. How sad, as the part of town we were in is considered rural and the dump in this parish is free for rural residents. All they have to do is show a license with their address.
Anyway we get pretty far down the road and we find a cemetery. If you unfamiliar with Louisiana cemeteries, they have their graves either above ground in tombs or weighted with cement, as we are so close to sea level (or in some cases below it) , bodies have been known to wash away. Anyway the effect is really cool, beautiful and creepy. Greg and I have a weird fascination with them.
So we spent quite a bit of time at the edge of the cemetery reading the dates on the tombs, so some were quite old, from the 1800’s and some were really recent. It was all quite fascinating actually.
Then I see I disturbance in the air. Kind of like a thin watery veil over one of the tombs, that I could see through. I guess it kind of looked like water glass. So I looked at Greg and said, time to go. I was calm and we left. So I told Greg “There was a ghost in there”. He just looked at me. “Really, what did it look like?” I told him what I saw and he looked at me like I lost my mind. I’m sure he thinks I am a nut. We never found out if the road actually goes all the way through, as we turned around at the cemetery.
So do you believe? I think it is entirely possible.
