This is my first story here. I have had many encounters in my life so far so I'll start off with this one.
The year was 2005, I think the month was December. Summer was just starting and I was staying at a friends of mine. So we decided to hang out at the park in Rangiora (in North Canterbury, North from Christchurch) called Matawai Nature Park. The time of the day was mid afternoon.
I was just going out from using the public toilets and went to find my friend who was on the other side of the park. As I was walking up to the path before the lake, I saw a tall white (glowing) faceless figure with arms and all. Walked out in front of me and walked around the corner. I stood still in shock, not believing what I saw at first. I thought I was going crazy. The area was dead quiet.
Few seconds later I heard my mate go Russellll... Did you see that? I replied by the white thing? He replied Yes. So I continue to walk ahead and my friend was around the corner as well and told me he saw it when he was on the other side of the lake.
My friend said we should go find it. So we tried to look for it for a good 10-20 minutes but couldn't but the area was still very silent and you can feel a shiver in the bones.
To this day I still wonder what I saw. Was very spooky the way it walked just like it was a casual thing. To describe it all I can say was it was glowing/shining. Its height was kind of like a basketball player height. Trying to remember it gives me shivers. Every time I go pass the park I get the chills.
