Last Summer I was down in San Diego taking a class for my job. One night a couple of buddies of mine decided to do one of those Ghost Tours down in Old Town San Diego. Now I wasn't really expecting much out of it but I figured it would be interesting just for the history in itself.
The Tour started out with walking around Old town and continued to the First church in San Diego. The guide gave plenty of information on history as well as reported siting at that location. I didn't see anything there, but still all very interesting information.
The stop was the cemetery, that consisted of purely history, no known siting in that specific part of town.
Now I can't really remember the rest of places we walked by. The last stop of the tour was the Whaley house. This was the only tour in town in which you could actually go in and tour the house. The house was Originally a the County Courthouse in which they held public hangings on the ground the most famous being Yankee Jim. The House was a later bought by the Whaley family the house in 1855.
While we where in the house a bunch of us where crowded around the candle lit Dinning room table. The Candle was one of the old oil ones that was kept lit by kerosine that to put out you lower the wick. With no wind or anything in the room the Wick dropped and went out. No one had touched it to lower it as well. After that we had gone towards the living room where about Yankee Jim was hung before the extension to the property after the Whaley family bought it. After the inside of the Tour was done we had gone out back and listened to some other sitings from the house. There is actually a police report on the property about a crying women was sitting on some old stairs in period dress, when the cops got up to her she just disappeared.
With everyone on the tour out side and the building all locked up. I began taking pictures through the windows inside the house using my phone. The pictures I had taken where a burst so it took about 40 or so pictures. Later the next day I was looking at the pictures on my phone something had caught my eye in the last few pictures so I zoomed it in. Once zoomed in I saw what I believe to be an apparition of a man in period dress.
There was no one leading the tour or on the tour that was dressed in this manner. And I will be including a picture of the apparition.
