I wanted to tell you of a recent event that happened to me last month.

My wife and i went on a trip to the Martha Washington inn in Abington V.A. last month. As we walked into the inn i felt a strange feeling come over me as though someone was watching us and since there were many people around at the time i did not give it a second thought. After check in we were given a room on the second floor on the east side of the hotel, it is a very beautiful inn and those here that have not been should go. Anyway....we had just topped the stairs and starting walking down the hall when i noticed a very large and very old wardrobe siting to my left. As i walked by it i started to feel a tingling sensation that started in my neck and flowed down to my toes. It was so intense in fact that after a few feet past the wardrobe i had to stop because i was finding it hard to stay on my feet and i felt as though i would collapse. After what was maybe 15 seconds i felt my strength return to me and all this time my wife was standing there looking at me and wanting to know what was wrong but i could not say a word. I told her that i thought that i may have just been welcomed by a ghost and she said she felt nothing! As we were walking to our room i remembered that we had a camera with us so as she was unlocking the door i told her to not to open it until i had the camera ready. As she slowly opened the door and i took about 5 shots of the room, why i'm not sure but the kicker is that when the film was developed there were two pictures that clearly showed orbs in them!

I have always thought of my self being very receptive of things like this as i have had experiences like this before although some were not very pleasant at all. The only way i can describe this to you would be a great feeling of love that just washed over my entire body. It was a very enjoyable experience!

So what do you think? I would very much like to hear all of your thoughts on this. Thank you!

I will do that for you. The only thing is the wife is out of town and she can do a better job than i can but she will be back Sunday and i will have her to do it.

Sorry it took so long, i had to leave the country unexpectedly. Here is the pic of our room. They may be hard to see but if you can enlarge the pic they are visible. Real orbs.....who's to say but it's still a little weird!

While you was there did anything strange happen other then what you have told us? Can someone point out this orb for me? I'm having trouble finding it.

Just to the right of the top of the lamp shade and also there are what seems to be others above and to the left of the shade as well. It could be dust i guess but we were careful not to open to door to the room to quickly so we would not stir up any dust that may be in the room. If you blow the pic up as i did here at home there seems to be many orbs in the room.

Nothing else really happened although for the few days that we spent there i always felt a strong since of peace while in the hotel.

Sorry I dont see any ghosts, but I do see a couple "orbs".
Which are caused by dust particals that pick up light and are distorted by the camera to make it seem like they are something else.
Some get water orbs that are specs of water on the lens of the camera.

Im not saying I dont belive in ghosts, but Orbs have been explained by many and are not paranormal. They are quite normal.

Good story tho, and sounds like you all had fun while you where out there.
When its all said and done, its a good thing to get out, do photos and stuff.
Keep on searching, you just may come across the real thing one of these days

Just to note, Ive been at this for many years, and still to this date I dont have a picture to post here. But I am well researched and will know if I have something worth posting. Nothing yet. It takes alot of time, and paranormal is very boring when it comes down to it.
TV hypes paranormal work so much, like they see something on every trip. Real paranormal work is very dull, and lots of sitting around and getting nothing 99% of the time.
Sure you can sense something, but thats a personal thing. Senses dont do much for those who are real skeptics, they laugh those feelings off, when they seem real to you or me.

Well i kinda got the feeling that there were just dust as well but it's still a good pic to start a conversation with. I wish he or she ( the spook ) would have been sitting in the chair when we opened the door. Then again if they made it easy for us to find them then the hunt would not be as fun!

Here is a sun orb I got while taking pictures out in clearwater of the scientology buildings.. Nothing paranormal, but still a pretty kewl light trick, where most that are not trained in paranormal would think maybe its a ghost.
I have some really old photos at my grandmothers house Id love to go threw agin, I remember seeing all sorts of stuff in those old pics, but Im willing to bet that they are casued from old age, or something to do with the cameras back in the 20's-40's.
