Annapolis Ghost Walk Part 3: A Ghost in Our Photo!!

During a recent historic Annapolis Ghost Walk in Maryland we wound up getting a GHOST in a photo we took with the tour guide.  
  "A Special Historic Haunting tour of Annapolis" was a 90 minute tour put on by Watermark and Historic Annapolis. It included a rare tour of the historic Sands House and we were led by an amazing tour guide. 

THE BEST TOUR GUIDE-  We were fortunate enough to get a guy dressed as a pirate and named "Saggy Boots" because his 2 foot high boots would sag. Not only was he handsome, but he put on a great British accent (we think it was put on), and he memorized and recited long poems he composed about two hauntings. He was amazing (and cute).

THE GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD - Ghosts don't usually haunt graveyards, but there is a well-known ghost who walks around a graveyard in Annapolis that circles a church. The church is St. Anne's Episcopal Church. It's an historic Episcopal church located in Church Circle, 199 Duke of Gloucester St, Annapolis, MD 21401. The first church in Annapolis, it was founded in 1692. A man in all black has been seen walking around the cemetery literally for hundreds of years. Our tour guide, "Saggy Boots the pirate" said that the ghost is known to a Sexton named James Simpson. A Sexton is a person who looks after a church and churchyard, sometimes acting as bell-ringer and formerly as a gravedigger.

THE PHOTO - Our tour guide's wife took my cell phone to take our picture with him. She only had my camera in her hand, and there was no one else taking pictures. We were standing in the dark cemetery and there was no light source within 100 feet or more (across the street). There is no explanation for the bar of white light that appeared in the second photo taken immediately after the first photo. I knew we were in the company of someone who had passed on and was roaming around as a ghost, so this may have been the ghost who was standing between us. What do you think? 

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.
