CAMPFIRE CONVERSATIONS

WITH ANDREW KENNEDY

Andrew Kennedy

Our host is well-travelled, having spent many years on Australia's roads with a van in tow. It's no surprise to find him at the fire, listening to a yarn and here Andrew has captured those tales for you

It’s dark, the campfire is crackling away, maybe you’ve had a few too many raspberry cordials, a cold breeze sends shivers up your spine, or is it just a breeze? The perfect time to share a few stories, ghost stories. C’mon, we’ve all been there, haven’t we, or maybe that’s just me? Trying to scare others on a camping trip, with a spooky yarn or two, believe them or not.

The fancy word paranormal means beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation, I’m not talking caravan weights and measures here (that’s much easier to understand). I’m talking ghosts, a vision, an apparition, a poltergeist, an ethereal being … a spook!

This conversation takes on three parts, a visit to a country town heritage and nautical museum, a cold room at a local pub (not the chiller), then a discussion with a paranormal investigator.

I get to share my ghost stories, plus we hear a few unbelievable, yet I reckon, convincing tales of terror, for some.

I know, with modern technology, it’s fairly easy to trick up a photo, take two of the pics in this story, one was a longer exposure on a camera, courtesy of our paranormal investigator, Alison Oborn. The other is a bit of photoshop magic, me standing behind a fire, thrown out of focus and made black and white.

But, check out the image of a lady that committed suicide in a pub, now said to be haunting the premises, the drawing next to her is one made by a young girl, after seeing the ghost of our sadly deceased lady.

No matter what your beliefs are, there are too many stories of ghosts, haunted buildings and maybe even campsites … we hope you enjoy our ghost stories around a campfire conversation.
