YOUR FAMILY: Heavenly Hauntings

There is possibly a special guest of Angel's Nest Bed & Breakfast who long ago checked in and never checked out

(Continued)

His description would later be important to Dyer.

She said in the years that followed different guests would report unusual noises and sightings of the same apparition. But she said she never put together the descriptions of the phantom female by different people until one time when it came from a couple who seemed the two most likely to see things that aren’t actually there.

“They had body piercings and tats and were under the influence of something,” Dyer said. “They were smoking weed, because I could smell it.”

Dyer said she left them alone, though, because they were outside on their room’s balcony and figured they were minding their own business and doing no harm.

So it would have been easy for Dyer to scoff at the woman’s claims the next morning about “visiting with the lady of the home she met on the balcony,” Dyer said.

The free-spirited houseguest said she and the spirit had a several-minute conversation – albeit one sided since the guest said the woman just “stood there and listened.”

Yeah, right. Except for one thing – the visitor then describes the woman to Dyer. The same dress, the  pinkish hue, dishwater blonde hair worn in a bun and gold-rimmed glasses.

Dyer has a spooky revelation. “They have all described the same person.”

Encounters – which could be reasonably explained or not – would continue, and scared some of the bed and breakfast guests off.

Dyer tells a story of a very recent honeymooning couple. The man was a Sailor who she said was large, standing about 6-foot-4. They left the house in the middle of the night, drove down the street and awoke Dyer with a phone call.

“I think you might be in danger,” the man told Dyer, suggesting she get out of the house and adding that they would be back in the daylight to get their bags and belongings.

    In June, there were seven students who explored the flora and fauna of the rainforest through music at The Burch School of Music. Each child made his or her own rain stick, along with other crafts and art work. For two hours each day for five days, students explored a different level of the rainforest, starting with the emergent layer at the top, moving through the canopy, the understory, the forest floor and the rivers. They let bats fly (black balloons) and were eaten by a boa constrictor. On the last day they dressed as natives and drummed together.
