    1. I was taking a picture of the old car. I though someone was behind me in the reflection of the glass but when I turned around no one was there. This is the picture. Looks like the side view of a face

    2. I went to visit the estate last week with two of my sons. I am pretty sensitive to ghosts and have had experiences in the past. I definitely felt a presence in the house, and got light headed and nauseous several times throughout the tour. Worth visiting.
