We recently added a new member to our team, Vinny, he’s Tim’s cousin who can sense and sometimes even communicate with spirits. He led the team to an old pub where he said he saw a spirit that interacted with him, which was pretty exciting. We went to a short drive to an old, 150 year old pub in Augustine.
According to Vinny, the poltergeist that haunts the pub is very mischievous and wouldn’t tell its identity too. I was with Sandra during this little trip and the minute we got in, Sandra said the poltergeist, a young girl, is already greeting us. Vinny seconded Sandra, saying that the girl is hanging around the side of the entrance and peeking from the barrels.
One of the patrons of the pub, Steve, greeted us. Steve said he frequents the bar for over 20 years. He even shared several strange experiences while unwinding in the pub where his drink vanished just as he was about to take a gulp. He said he dismissed the incident as him being too drunk but it happened several times that he thinks it’s the alleged ghost of the old pub that’s been stealing his drinks!
Another patron, called Mac, corroborated Steve’s story saying he himself’s got several strange experiences on the bar that’s why he rarely ever go there alone. He said on two separate occasions, he heard loud banging on the men’s room as he passed by. When he entered the restroom, it was empty.
Sandra said that the girl likes to shake things up a bit. She’s around 11 years old when she died. She said the girl kept complaining that someone braided her hair too tightly, saying that she prefers to wear her hair down but adults are not paying her any mind.
It was a relatively short trip. We spent an hour asking questions to patrons and the bartenders and most of them have a story to tell. The pub is a bit cramped and we left after an hour and a half just as people started pouring in.
