ENGLAND TRIP: Day 4, Part 9: Hampton Court Palace- GHOST ON VIDEO

In October 2003, closed-circuit security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, captured an image of a hooded man flinging a set of doors open behind the model of William III's state apartments.  When security reached the fire doors the first time they opened, there was no one there.  They saw the doors fly open on their own on the security camera tape. The next day, the alarm went off (as it did the first dy), and no one was there and the doors closed themselves. The next time, CCTV cameras showed a hooded figure flinging the doors open!!
 BELOW IS THE VIDEO I MADE USING THE AUDIO TOUR:

Excerpt from a story from MSNBC about the incident:
“We’re baffled too — it’s not a joke, we haven’t manufactured it,” said Vikki Wood, a Hampton Court spokeswoman, when asked if the photo the palace released was a Christmas hoax. “We genuinely don’t know who it is or what it is.”
Wood said security guards had seen the figure in closed-circuit television footage after checking it to see who kept leaving open one of the palace’s fire doors.
In the still photograph, the figure of a man in a robelike garment is shown stepping from the shadowy doorway, one arm reaching out for the door handle.
The area around the man is somewhat blurred, and his face appears unnaturally white compared with his outstretched hand.
“It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn’t look human,” said James Faukes, one of the palace security guards.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
