As previously mentioned in my first account, I have seen "things" my entire life. As I stated my parents have told me I would just stop and have conversations with the thin air, coming up with details no child of 3-6 ever could. I have no real memories of this, but am told I stopped doing this at around 6 years of age. Other than seeing things but having no real interactions with them I had no experiences until I was 19 almost 20. So this took place late in 2001, and there I just gave away my age LOL.
At this point in my life I was working in the hospitality industry in Surfers Paradise and living with family - my father, 2 brothers aged 18 and 16 we will call them L & K, and a sister aged 13, in Southport on the Gold Coast. We were living in a large battle axe block; the house was situated right at the front of the block, fairly close to 4 story block of units that was situated directly on the street front. The two properties shared a driveway with the unit going into an underground car park. The main entrance was set back from the street front, with a mid-sized garden in front of the main door, this garden had a large tree in the middle of it. The door itself was one of the metal and glass security doors used by this style of building, it automatically locked when it closed as a security feature. As it was about 10 years old or so it made quite a noise whenever it opened or closed.
My brother L and I had made several friends in the units and knew most of the other residents that lived there by sight. One evening after we had finished work (so around 5:30ish) L and I were visiting one of these friends in his apartment, which was on the ground floor. There were a few of us visiting, around 6, so we were all on the balcony, which was a 2 foot (60 cm) drop to the garden bed previously mentioned. We were having a drink, but having only just started none of us had even finished our first beers.
From the corner of my eye I noted movement near the entrance to the building, someone had exited the building and was walking down the path to the driveway. Turning to see if I knew the person, I saw a woman that I did not recognize, dressed in a very old style all white dress. Now at this point I realized that I hadn't heard the door open or close and as I said it was quite loud. A few steps later she stepped from the path into the garden, walked past the tree going behind it and disappearing. After she failed to reappear from behind the tree I noticed that my brother and two of the others had been watching her too.
We went looking for her, the two who didn't see her, not believing us so staying to finish their drinks. We checked in the door, to see if she had somehow gotten back in without us seeing her. We checked the car park, the street front and down to the block that I was living at, as that was the direction that she had gone before vanishing. As we went down the driveway we saw my father, sitting outside having a cigarette. We asked if he had seen anyone come down the driveway in the last 5 minutes or so, to which he replied that he had been sitting there for about 15 minutes and that no he hadn't. We didn't find her anywhere.
Over the next month or so I did some research into the property and the area, and never found out anything to suggest who she may have been or why she was there. I lived there for another 18 months and saw her on 8 other occasions, different lunar cycles and no pattern that I could discern to predict her appearances. Every time she disappeared behind the tree. Whenever any of us tried to talk to her she never acknowledged that she was even aware of us. Some of the others attempted to use a spirit or Ouija board to contact her, I never joined that having seen too many horror flicks and knowing that it never ends well LOL, and as far as I know they never contacted anyone. I have always thought that this was a cool experience, and have never really tried to explain it in anyway, just wanted to share it with all of you, Thanks.
