Seven years ago on my way home driving through Belmont, as I always did, around 2:30 in the morning I saw a woman in a long flowing white dress (looked like she was possibly in her late 30’s/early 40’s but I am bad with age) walking up Royal Road (right around 58 Royal Road) walking right up the street. Although I looked at her as I passed, she did not look at me and instead continued staring straight in front of her.
I thought it was very odd for a woman to be out so late at night, all by herself, and her outfit choice was just bizarre. It wasn’t a normal dress you’d see today. I can’t explain it.
Just one minute later I did a U-turn in a driveway just around the corner by Thomas Street and came back to have a look at her again.
She had just disappeared…….. It was not enough time for her in my turning around for fifteen seconds to have gone into any homes, let alone walked up a driveway she was passing by… She truly just disappeared.
It was at this point I got the chills and realized this woman was not human. I still don’t know what she was, I wouldn’t say anything threatening or evil, but I am no expert. I just know for certain she was not human so I would say it was a ghost for sure.
The reason why I now post this is because I have never forgotten this woman in the white dress walking that windy street in Belmont seven years ago, and want to know more as I am just as intrigued as I was that morning.
I have heard other stories about people seeing this woman as well. I would love to learn more like the history of that road, maybe even the history of 58 Royal Road, etc. Please comment if you saw her also or have any insight as to this experience.
