So how was my recent visit to the Queen Mary? It was fun!
Just kidding! LOL. It was fun, but it was also more. It was on my list of top 10 haunted places to go. I’m just lucky I have the opportunity to do such things. I definitely want to go back, and maybe this time Cheryl can go on the Paranormal Investigation Tour with me. It would be nice to try and get a little private investigation. I wonder if an offer of a story in the magazine and the free publicity this would provide could make this happen. I hope that Cheryl will write the next article, as I am in the midst of writing one for our most recent visit. I would like to see her take on it all, as she has never been on a bona fide paranormal excursion. Not that I consider the last tour I went on as one. I looked at it as a primer on the ship and the supposed spirits that reside there.
Below is a disembodied voice that I got while around water tight door 13. Supposedly this is where a young engineer (John) was killed during World War II — his body caught in the door when it was being closed. All I know is that when I walked around the other side of the corridor by myself, and approached a door on the inside wall that was slightly ajar, I got a feeling that I was not alone. I asked into the slight opening, “Are you in there John ?” To my shocking surprise I heard a low response of “Mmhmm.”
I also went on a paranormal walking tour with Cheryl the night before. Below is a picture taken in what used to be Boiler Rooms 1 and 2. Now, I don’t put much credence in pictures of orbs, but the fact that my camera has never taken a picture with orbs in it gives me pause. So, 1 out of around 200 total pictures makes me think there might be something to it. Then again, it could be dust.
I am writing an article about this visit for an upcoming issue. The Queen Mary is truly a beautiful ship. I could feel the age dripping off of it. LOL. I would recommend it for anyone who gets the chance to go aboard.
