Apologies in advance for a lengthy post, but bear with me.
Okay, I need help with a possible EVP. I know nothing about these things, except what I see on television, and I lack the equipment or skill to
actually analyze the recording. Hopefully that's where my amazing friends at ATS can come into play.
The situation: this past weekend my family took a trip to Beaufort, NC. For those unfamiliar with that area, it's part of the Outer Banks and the
infamous Blackbeard lived there for a time. Lots of history and such.
While there, we signed up for one of the ghost walks through Beaufort. I love this type of thing; I like the history side of the tour and the tiniest
hint of the supernatural. I also admire the storytelling skills, but overall I'm skeptical about the validity of the stories. I do like to return to
such locations later, I guess out of supernatural curiosity.
During the tour our guide showed us an old but beautiful graveyard. One of he graves stood out from the others. That's because it was covered in
The guide explained that 300 or so years ago, an 11 year old girl died while at sea with her father. He brought her home to Beaufort to bury her, and
there she lies. I'm not quite sure how the tradition of leaving toys for her began, but it's been going on for a long time.
She's buried in the children's area of the graveyard, and supposedly when the caretakers open the graveyard in the morning they will find the toys
scattered on the graves of the other children. A story which I'm highly skeptical of, but it does make for a good tale.
The tour was on Saturday night; on Monday my family visited the graveyard for a closer look. My son wanted to leave one of his toy trucks for the
little girl, and I acquiesced. We were the only people in the graveyard, and for fun I turned on my voice recording app on my iPad. Supposedly, the
app will not only record in high quality, it also detects the EMF levels of the area. Now, I'm aware this is hardly scientific equipment, but
nevertheless it's fun to use in such places.
Here's where I need your help. In listening to the recording, I think I might actually have caught something. I'm going to try my best to upload it
here via Soundcloud, but since I've never tried that, apologies if I good it up.
The recording is less than a minute long. In it, you will hear myself, my husband, and my son talking. At one point I say it's not detecting any EMF
levels. In fact, it was; I was reading it incorrectly. The baseline reading when we were across the street was 29.1, during this particular
recording it was in the 3,000s with a peak of 3, 387.
I won't tell you exactly what I think I hear or when, because I don't want to plant a suggestion in your mind. If necessary, I can point the exact
time out later.
I'm really looking forward to hearing your opinions, ATS. Thanks!
