Well, me and my OH are just back from a walk in the woods...taking advantage of this glorious weather!
Now this is a walk we have done quite a few
times, usually we are with the kids and the dog.
Over the Summer. we were on an evening stroll and OH had the DSLR around his neck as he was taking pictures, just left it to hang in front of him when
he was walking..on his chest. I was ahead with the kids throwing stones in the brook, I turned back to see how far behind us he was and the camera
flashed, whilst it was resting on his chest and switched off!? The flash is only triggered when the shutter button is pressed and the flash pops up,
the flash did actually trigger without popping up?? Which should not happen...we all looked at each other and thought how did that happen!! But, we
just thought it's one of those things, although it has never happened before, nor since. We shrugged it off. But on this particular walk, I also
noticed a black figure rush through the trees. My OH was telling me it was my eyes playing tricks on me, there are a lot of trees (obviously...we are
in the woods!) But they are on different levels as it slopes down to a brook/stream...there are bridges and paths everywhere. Now I know that your
eyes can play tricks on you, it was dusky...but I saw a long, thin, solid black figure...although I leant towards the fact that it was probably my
Now, I have said from the very first time I went, that I have an uneasy feeling when I'm there, nothing to stop me going, but something all the same.
This freaked me out a little as the dog whimpers and cries at certain points.
Today however, it felt very serene...my OH was about ten minutes ahead of me and I walked through on my own and felt nice and relaxed. We met up and
walked, on the way back to the car, we were just chatting and then my OH's mobile phone starts throwing a hissy fit!! We were looking at each other
puzzled as we did not recognise the tone, it wasn't his selected ringtone or message alert. He took it out of his pocket and it was cycling through
the ringtone's. As we were looking at each other and saying what was that about, we noticed we were in the exact same spot that the camera had flashed
a few months ago! We had not gave it any more thought since, PLUS on the walk into the woods, I saw this black figure swishing through the clearing
again..only today was sunny, not dusky!! But my OH just laughed at me and said 'come and get me' jokingly, goading me...and perhaps the spirit
We have got home and checked the phone out, he always has it in his pocket and it has never done this before. It is a Galaxy 2, but we have both had
touch screen phones for a few years now and neither have ever done anything when on our person. The phone was locked, a button needs to be pressed to
bring it to life, then the screen needs to be swiped before you can opt for any of the icons. It actually took us seven steps to get to the
ringtone's, they didn't even play in sequence, once we have checked. The first sound was called Downhill, the second...Chime!?!?
Now I know logically, this can be explained, but it is quite freaky all the same!!
