Welcome!

Hello Friends, It has been a while! It was a busy winter, personally and business wise, but we are up and running and expecting a fantastic season!

It is just one week until the official start of summer and I think we (at least in the Northeast) are ready. We will be having a special Solstice Eve tour in Camden on Friday June 20 to celebrate.

This year we have added 2 new towns, Hallowell and Rockland, bringing our total to 7 fascinating Maine spots for history and mystery! I hope you can join us on one of these new Haunted History walks. We continue to have several Cemetery Tours available.

Something else new and different are “Ghosts on the Coast” river cruises with the Damariscotta River Tripper. We’ll be having one special 2 hour trip in July and one in August, both in the late afternoon, so that guests can enjoy the scenery as well as a few tales of mysteries and hauntings. If you’re interested in tickets, here is a link to the website. http://damariscottarivercruises.com/

There will be a new offering in Wiscasset beginning in July, but we’re not quite ready to divulge yet, stay tuned! Of course, we will continue to offer our Full Moon Tours and occasional specials as well.

In addition, our sister company, Mysterious Destinations, offers small group Lighthouse Lore trips (from 1 to 4 days), Paranormal Investigations once a month, and our annual Halloween “Overnight with Myrtle.” For further information, check the website. www.MysteriousDestinations.com.

We certainly hope to see you in some way or another soon – thanks for following!

Cupcake!

Saturday night we had the best tour in Wiscasset! Funloving folks along and… Cupcake the dog. I believe Cupcake is a Golden Retriever, but in any case, she is the best trained dog I’ve ever seen!

She seemed to enjoy the history of Wiscasset and even helped us out with the name of one of the ghosts, according to her owner. We did not notice her reacting to anything in the area, though some say that animals can be sensitive to paranormal activity.

It was a full moon night, but due to being overcast, we were not able to enjoy it at all! Some weird pictures were taken at the cemetery, but I believe the anomolies were caused by the mist and moisture in the air.

Cupcake liked to be right at the front of the line with me, I’m not sure if she thought she was helping or if she felt protected by the safety of my Red Cloak!

Well behaved dogs are always welcome on our tours!

Once in a Blue Moon!

Tomorrow is a full moon night; always special, but this time it’s extra special as it’s the second full moon during the month of August! 2 full moons in one month does not happen often, the last one was in March 2010.

A blue moon has nothing to do with the color of the moon, just the old folklore expression for something that doesn’t happen very often.

Of course, many people believe it’s good luck to be born on a blue moon, or even in the month of a blue moon, so lucky birthdays to those!

The next blue moon will be in July 2015, so take advantage of this one, especially being on a Friday night, and enjoy – it’s a great night for a Haunted History Tour!

National Girlfriend Day

I recently found out that August 1st is National Girlfriend Day – so the first thing to do is gather up your girlfriends and bring them on a Red Cloak Haunted History Tour! We will have 3 tours on Wednesday, August 1st (which is also a Full Moon night, by the way!); Camden, Boothbay Harbor and first come first served for Damariscotta or Wiscasset.

The second thing to do is share a girlfriend ghost story with me. Maybe you and a girlfriend had a paranormal experience or explored a haunted house together, or maybe your story is more like mine…

My best friend since early elementary school lives across the country from me here in Maine. She and I were inseparable as we were growing up and each considered the other’s family to be ours as well. My mother used to wear a particular lotion with a distinctive smell – long ago off the market. The night my mother passed away, my girlfriend told me she was awakened in the middle of the night and knew someone was in her room – and she knew just who it was; she could distinctly smell my mother’s lotion – a smell she had not experienced in over 30 years! My mother had stopped in to tell her goodbye.

What’s your story??

What could be better than a Full Moon Maine Ghost Tour?

A Full Moon Maine Ghost Tour with some history thrown in, of course! And with The Lady in the Red Cloak! We’ll have tours in Damariscotta and Bath tomorrow evening at 7:00. I’m beginning to offer a few 5:00 tours, which are great for some people, and we’ll have those tomorrow as well. The weather’s been fantastic and should stay through tomorrow at least!

Full Moon Explore Results

We had a great group join us on Saturday night’s Full Moon Midnight Explore at the Rufus Flye house in Damariscotta, Maine! We started with more than a light supper which included a choice of lobster roll or crab cakes among others, thanks to Salt Bay Cafe. After a short history of the building and paranormal happenings there, an explanation of devices that would be used during the evening, and the plan for exploration, the hunt began!

We split into 3 teams, each of which had an EMF detector, camera and flashlight. A K2 meter was used by one group, and we had 2 EVP recorders as well as an infared non-contact thermometer and 2 video cameras.

Several EVP sessions were done in different parts of the building, one which included a guest feeling something brush against her bare leg and stay there for approximately 3-4 minutes. The temperature surrounding her dropped about 3 degrees at that time!

In another area of the building there was some very active EMF activity. An EVP recording was taken there as well.

During a break for coffee and soda, we experimented with dowsing rods, trying to get the spirits to communicate with us that way. The evening wrapped up about 1:00 am.

Due to the large amount of data to be evaluated, we do not have results ready to post yet, but I wanted to give you a short idea of how the evening went.

Results will be posted on our new website www.mysteriousdestinations.com as soon as possible, please check back often. This new website is a sideline expansion of Red Cloak Haunted History Tours, and will be offering another Explore at the Rufus Flye House on October 15, as well as an Explore at the haunted Winter Street Center in Bath in September, 2 Halloween overnights and a cruise to the Western Caribbean in March! You will want to join us on all of these adventures for sure!
