Ghosts & Orbs St. Augustine, Florida
St Augustine, Florida is infamous for its many haunted sites. Ghost tours are offered on about every block of the city.
I have visited 2 times and I love it. I have not however, done the ghost tour thing. On this page I am going to share a story about our second visit to St. Augustine, and what we encountered during that visit.
Ever heard of orbs before?
St. Augustine Orb Photos
Before we left on our trip to St. Augustine my husband (Cory) mentioned something about a conversation he had with a coworker. The discussion was about catching ghosts in pictures in the form of orbs. I had been to St. Augustine once before, but was unaware of this capability. Cory is not a believer in the supernatural, so it was funny that "he" mentioned it to "me".

Our Visit To Castillo de San Marcos
As the sun went down...
And the moon came out. We all went to the fort, where Nicole (my youngest) INSISTED on walking all the way around in the moat.
Amber (my oldest) was not thrilled with this, so she sat on a bench with her music blasting in her ears, and her camera in hand. She was taking pictures of the sky above the moat.
The almost full moon was getting brighter, as the sky got darker.
My husband sarcastically asks my daughter if she is trying to capture orbs, and just then, she jumps up and says: "OMG! I got one!". Sure enough, there was a white blob, plain as day. My husband explained it away as a reflection of the moon, or a reflection of the lights on the fort. Then he took the camera and wiped off the lens, because the lens just HAD to be dirty.
So HE started taking the pictures...
And again there they were! And again, and again, and again. So he gave the camera back to my daughter. She continued to photograph the graveyard, and throughout our walk back to the hotel. These orbs, or whatever they are, are captured in almost all of the photos.
