How are you? Great, I hope! How was your weekend? Ours was GREAT! The hubby and I decided to get away for an early Valentine's Day weekend as it appears he will be working a lot between now and then and won't have a chance for a weekend getaway at that time. So... we headed off to Eureka Springs, Arkansas (if you've never been - you MUST GO! - BUT do NOT go in January as most everything is completley closed down). We stayed in the famous New Orleans Hotel:
and then decided to take a ghost tour at the ever so famous Crescent Hotel:
According to Ghost Hunters (a/k/a TAPS) - it is one of the most haunted hotels in the world. While there we were able to visit the "morgue" where "Dr. Baker" buried all of his "patients":
Well, hubby and I were up for an adventure so we decided to try out "Dr. Baker's Bistro & Sky Bar"
before the tour to have an appetizer and a drink:
Afterwards, we met up with the rest of the "ghost hunters" and went on our way. We heard stories from the little girl who fell over the banister from the 4th floor and they found her on the bottom step already dead:
to the story of a young woman who was staying there when it was an all girl's boarding school that "jumped" (or was she pushed?) to her death, to Michael the charming Irishman who was about 17 years old that fell to his death while on top of a scaffle when he decided to lean over and whistle at the pretty girls below and even the mysterious old lady who people actually see and talk to in the hall outside her room (though I'm not sure how she died there exactly).
Here are a few pictures from the tour that other people took in the past. I wasn't able to catch any orbs or anything with my camera so I was a bit bummed. But, oh well - it was a lot of fun anyway! :)
This is the image that was caught on the thermocam by the Ghost Hunters when they were there (I think it was in 2009). I got a picture of the locker (which is what the number 2 is on) but haven't looked at it to see if I was able to catch anything. However, I did stand by the locker in the same spot, which was an experience all on its own. :) Oh, did I mention that the locker was in the "morgue"? HA!
After the "great" tour - we actually met up with some friends that I've not seen in at least 20 years and had drinks with them. They were in town celebrating their 15 year anniversary:
Well, there you have it - our weekend in a nutshell. So... fill me in and tell me about your weekend! Did you do anything fun and exciting or was it too cold where you were and so you stayed home and snuggled under the blankets with a book or your loved ones?
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello!
