Find the Story Friday!!! Do you believe in Ghosts?

Dun, Dun, Dunnnnnn.....

:)  Happy Friday, all!!

So, on my recent trip to Canada, the fam and I took a drive up to the town of Banff in Alberta.  For my Utah followers, I would have to say that Banff is akin to Park City.  Adorable little resort town in a beautiful setting.  The main draw to Banff, however, is that it is home to one of the world's top ten haunted hotels:  The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

And even if you're not into the whole haunted scene...the hotel is just INCREDIBLE to go and see anyhow.  It was built in the 1880's, it's GRAND (ummm....yeah, thought about staying there a night, but it was $400 a night and that was for the cheap, non-peak season room!!!!!), and heck!  Marilyn Monroe stayed there.  Seriously - they've got pics!

But, I went for the ghosts.  I can't say I'm a 100% believer.  I get the occasional creepy feeling.  I think I might have seen things in the past.  But, still - I've never seen anything move of its own accord.  I've never had an actual apparition float up to me and say "BOO!"  Still...I think my belief stems from my fascination about any supernatural anything and the possibilities that it might all be true. 

So, we went to the hotel.  We strolled.  We took pics.  And a voice recording... :)  Which, I haven't listened to yet...come to think of it.  And here's the one pic I got that might make me a true believer:

I hope you can see what I see.  The picture quality looks so much better on my camera...but, if you look at my niece on the right...big, fat ORB!  And if you look above the orb at her arm...well. 

Tell me - do you see what I see??  What's your best, possible ghost sighting?  Do tell.

$400 a night! My mom would have booked it immediately but I wouldn't even stay there for a dollar. I'm chicken!!

I'm not one who believes - or doesn't believe in ghosts. I say this because I'd be so freaked if they showed up and started asking me to help them.

Afraid I'm definitely not a believer in ghosts. The orb is interesting but... I have never heard of a ghost appearing as an orb! :) Looks like you had a great time!!

I don't believe in ghosts, but I do believe that's a dust speck. Be cool to stay there though.

I totally believe in ghosts(not in some crazy sense like I'm out chasing them more like it's possible), but I've also never heard of a ghost showing up as an orb.

That place sounds neat. The house I grew up in, an old farmhouse, was haunted. All sorts of weird things happened, from vacuums moving by themselves to chairs moving to knocks on the wall. All centered in one room, too. I usually avoided the dining room when it was dark.

My camera does that blog thing once in a while. I've had to clean them up with PaintShop many times. The darker the original, the more often I find these.

There is no denying that there is something in the picture. I like watching those ghost hunting shows and I don't think I've ever seen what they call an orb that is quite that big. Interesting.
