ENGLAND TRIP: Day 7: Part 3: Thornbury Castle Our Haunted Room

The Ghost (orb) next to Tom at our bedroom door!

Rob at the door, and no orb!
When the woman at the front desk brought us to our room, the "Bedford," we had to go up a winding staircase into one of the towers. It was amazing. At the top of the stairs, there was a large wooden door with a sign that said "Bedford." Right at the top of the stairs, I (Rob) got my tell-tale headache indicating that there was a ghost present. 
  When we walked into the Bedford suite, we stood there with our mouths open. It was actually a tudor-style castle turned hotel, and furnished as such! It had stone walls, tapestries hanging from the walls, a huge wooden door into the bathroom, large ropes hanging from the wall that turned on the lights.     
  As we left the room, I took a picture of Tom posing with the giant key they gave us, and pretending to lock the door. That's when an orb appeared in the photo! 
WHAT IS AN ORB? An orb is a rounded ball of light, that is the most simple form a ghost can take. The way you can tell its an orb and not a reflection of light, dust, bug, etc. is that it has colors and designs inside the orb. In fact, sometimes you can actually see a face in the orb. We were amazed. That was just the beginning. When Tom took the camera to take a photo of me, the ghost had gone through the door and into the bedroom. We would deal with him later when we returned.

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.
