A Ghost Story: Is Shinn Park in Fremont, Ca. Haunted?
A Haunted Park?
Shinn Park in Fremont California is one of my favorite local parks to visit - and I am not the only person that likes to visit Shinn: there may also be otherworldly "people" or spirits that like to visit there too.
Now before we get into a debate about whether or not ghosts even exist, let me explain what happened to me one day 6 years ago on one of my "visits" to Shinn Park.

A ghost on my video recorder?
The day that I captured what I think was a "ghost" on a video camera was the first time I had ever recorded something "weird" like this on video. And I might note also that I have never captured anything like this since that day.
And to put the record straight - I am NOT a ghost hunter. In fact I'm not even entirely sure I even believe in them. After capturing this however, it did given me pause to think. It also gave someone else pause to think too - my video caught the attention of the owner of the popular website Angels and Ghosts. Angels and Ghosts even featured my video of Shinn Park in October of 2006 on their website (just in time for Halloween they said)
Here is an account of that day:
It was a beautiful day at Shinn Park in Fremont, California, a place that I frequent with my friends and family often. It was about 75 degrees and there was no wind, clouds or even a breeze on the day when I caught what may have been a "ghost" on my camera video recorder. I was sitting on the grass that day. We had our dogs with us and I was taking video of them. I was waiting for my border collie to come running around the house but he jetted the other way so I turned my camera off. When I later viewed the video I saw a strange and ghostly image that looked like a silhouette on video. No one was smoking nor was anyone by me when I took this. I kept it because it was so unusual. Later on my son said the house was haunted and they thought I may have captured a ghost on video. I have never saw anything strange since that day but my sister-in-law frequently takes photos there that appear to have "orbs" in them. Very strange! Also, I had taken other videos right before and after this one and there was nothing "strange" like this on any of them. I do also remember feeling weird and kind of sick at the park that day and we left soon after that.
