Sunday we went on a Ghost Walk in Virginia City. There were 9 of us and I know for sure that 7 of us are Christians. Why do I bring this up? Well, on the Ghost Walk they give a few of those Electro Magnetic thinga-ma-gigs that lets you know when a ghost is around. One of us had this thing and it didn’t go off when the others did. LOL If you think about it, we were protected by Jesus during all this.
It was 90 minutes of walking, yes, I walked all the way, up and down hills and up stairs (thankfully the stairs weren’t tall steps) with my trusty cane and my trusty hubby, we walked all this way. We did stop at each place of interest, so I got to rest for a couple of minutes.
In a ghost walk, one learns more about the history of a place. I feel it provides the color of the town and all that the city was like many years ago with all the mining, bars, bar girls and all. You learn about fires in the city, not just one but several. You learn about the people that rebuild the structures. You also learn about the people who died there. Yes, they are part of the ghosts of interest, but when you think about it, their stories are interesting. Whether true or not, still a sad story for each of them.
We did do a lot of laughing, just because the group I went with are fun. I think one of the guys was busy praying through it all! LOL, how cool! No wonder there were no shadowy figures.
So if you want to experience a ghost walk and see the lights glow on the thinga-ma-gig and/or see a shadowy figure – probably not a good idea to take a bunch of Christians with you!
