ENCOUNTER #1 - RESIDUAL HAUNT - Not a ghost, but an impression -As we walked into the front entrance of the Gaol (pictures in yesterday's blog), I (Rob) heard lots of shouting outside. In the entry way are mannequins of two women, one of which was imprisoned there for some minor crime. Across from them is a room where the warden sat. When I walked inside I suddenly had a strong headache in the front right side of my head - feeling the energy in the room. It must've been strong emotional energy of turmoil and irritation. The warden's office was called "The Governor's Office."
ENCOUNTER #2 - INTELLIGENT HAUNT - An Interactive Ghost - In the west wing "Drum Gallery" I felt like I was being hit hard on the left shoulder from behind. I was told "I am a prisoner here. I was hit and beaten by a guard - the beating left the back of my head bleeding." Suddenly the back of my head felt painful and warm, as if I were feeling the sensation of warm blood oozing out of my skull after being hit in the head. I asked him his name and why he was in the Gaol. He said "My name is Daniel. I stole horses and sheep." Apparently, he also died in the jail, most likely from his head injuries. He still walks around.

ENCOUNTER #3- Residual Haunt - Near Thomas Raille's Cell - I felt very light-headed. There was a 'thumbprint" of bad energy left behind from that prisoner. I don't know what he did or who he was, but he wasn't a nice man.

ENCOUNTER #5 - RESIDUAL HAUNT- On the second floor in the Eastern Corridor, I felt dizzy. I suddenly was filled with fear and anxiety, I felt the misery of being locked up in there.
ENCOUNTER #6- CATCHING A GHOST ON CAMERA!!!
This is the big one. I actually caught a photo of a ghost walking across one of the corridors. We stopped at the Northern Corridor, which housed more cells. This corridor (pictured right) was sealed off with bars.
I felt some presence in that corridor, so I put the camera through the bars and took three photos. I the third photo there is a figure (it appears to be a man hunched over) in kind of a green glow. The figure did NOT appear in the other two photos that I took immediately beforehand. You can see for yourself as I put the photos together in sequence below. In addition, the one photo with the figure is below that, too, and enlarged.
