Ghoulish October 27, 2010


Looking for something to do during this ghoulish time of the year?

The Haunting
Long ago during the so called dark-ages in Saugatuck and Douglas, there was a Cabal known as the Watchers, they kept to themselves high up on a wooded hill overlooking the two villages. Sometimes under a full moon, you could hear screams emanating from their direction, sometimes the hill would be shrouded in mist on a sunny day. Then one day the house on the hill was just gone. There is a rumor that they quietly joined the ranks of locals who live here and to this day, over 100 years later, there are certain people who never seem to age. Sometimes late at night on the eve of the Festival of the Dead, a young couple will go missing and somehow tow people in town seem to get younger.

Don't forget to walk along the beach late at night and you can hear the cries of lost sailors who went to davy jones locker or do you just hear a lone seagull or two.
