      My daughter who was 5 at the time was taking puctures on her I Pod and captured what looks like a boy waving to her. There was nothing next to the chair. This was about 4 years ago.

    2. My boyfriend and I were in Dana Point this past weekend 4/26-4/28 and we stayed at the Marina Inn room 206. My bf and I felt a presence throughout our stay. I kept seeing something move fast in the corner of my eyes. My bf also said that he keeps seeing a shadow of a man by the mirror.
      Right when my bf told me that he sees a shadow, our last night became interesting. Right when we were about to sleep, we kept hearing a tapping sound near my side of the bed and it happened periodically. The next day, I woke up first to use the restroom and found there were black splatters on the bathtub. I washed it off and it didn’t come off easily as I thought. My boyfriend used the restroom right after and he noticed it too and thought it was really weird.

      PS. I have an active third eye and can sense weird stuff. For my bf to validate that the room feels really weird made me weary this whole weekend. I googled if there was anything that happened at the marina inn and didn’t find anything at all. I just wanted to share our odd experience!

      That’s all 🙂 Thank you!
