Before I get into details of my experience, I might as well give the required background information. The location is Hampton, GA, close to the NASCAR racetrack, commonly referred to as AMS by the locals. The date was just three short days ago, June 22nd, 2012. The time, around late afternoon, maybe 1300 or 1430.
So, the other day, I was out for a simple joy ride. I intended on going to the local airport, since I haven't been in so long. So, I took a back road to get there. I followed the main road, and took a left onto Wilkins Rd., a relatively secluded dirt road with just about 5 or 6 houses. As soon as I turned onto Wilkins Road, I spotted a woman. She looked rather young, maybe mid to early 20's. She was wearing a long dress, similar to something worn by a woman of the 1800's. Her hair was pulled up and tied back, and a doctors mask covered her mouth. As I drove past, going approximately 25 miles per hour (a modest, yet moderate speed), she stopped dead in her tracks, turned towards my car, and motioned both of her hands down as though she was telling me to slow down.
It was extremely strange. I didn't bother to look back in the rear view mirror. After talking things over with my mother, who is very interested in paranormal activity/ghost sightings, she believes that if it was paranormal, the girl was probably a guardian type of spirit, who was warning me of something. I honestly don't know. Maybe it was paranormal. I have been doubting myself about what I saw, while also keeping an open mind. But I figured it was a story worth sharing.
What do you all think of it? Could it just be a woman who happens to choose a lifestyle similar to a time period of long ago? Or maybe something more, surreal.
