But for some visitors, a brief encounter with the wandering soul of a person who once walked these now ancient streets can be both unexpected and unforgettable – even in broad daylight.
Sometimes it is fleeting – a pallid face peering for only a heartbeat from the window of a long-abandoned building. Or sometimes the unexplained remains in place, inviting further study – did that gargoyle on the rooftop shift his position? It certainly seems so – but that would be…crazy?
Sometimes the interaction with the spirit world is more sensed that seen – like the presence that can only be your husband following close behind you in the Peña-Peck House, but when you turn to ask about his sudden interest in history you realize you are alone. Don’t be alarmed. You’re in St. Augustine.
