The July Investigation has now been and gone, and an interesting investigation it was too.
We welcomed Meahd to her first investigation, and she pulled it off like a pro – from listening to her EVP sessions she sounds like she’s been investigating for years! Well done, Meahd.
We had 12 participants for the investigation who all seemed to have a great time getting into the buildings for some quality paranormal time.
The most bizarre thing to report has to have been the noise from the Commandant’s house. At the time when the noise was first heard I was out on the Verandah at the front of the house, and everyone else was inside with gear. Two of our group heard the noise while investigating, and came and got me. We went back to the room where they’d been (just up on the first landing of the stairs, right across from the study – what is it with me and that area?) and tried to get it to happen again. We were rewarded with more giggly/gurgly noises. We’re still working on an explanation, but can happily rule out gurgling water as it wasn’t raining, and that area of the house does not have running water – so no pipes in the walls. We looked for squeaky doors and floorboards too, but no luck there either.
What I find entertaining is that there used to be a time when if something like that happened, I would’ve been the first one out the door! These days my curiosity is getting the better of fear. A good thing? Here’s hoping.
In other news we have another special tour coming up with the crew from SEA FM (100.9FM) in the next few weeks. They’ll be joining us for a ghost tour and a paranormal investigation in mid August, then broadcasting the Breakfast show from our Visitors Centre the following morning. Listen out to SEA FM for more details coming soon.
The next public Paranormal Investigation Experience heads out the door at 9 pm on the 31st August. Plenty of space available, so head over to our bookings page to secure your spot.
