It was just a few days ago when i had went to Bachelors grove for a visit. It was an extremely rainy day and my brother, my nephew and me all spent a few hours in the place alone. I had already been to the place about a dozen times before, shooting roll after roll of film and not coming up with a whole lot. But i always felt like something was there. It was my brothers first visit there and he wanted to bring the ouija board so that he could attempt to make contact with someone. He sat down and attempted it several times, but the only thing the board would spell out is "FES". I also noticed that people had been burning candles on the graves at some point, as there was wax still present on them. At about four thirty in the afternoon we were filming videotape and taking pictures when a sudden fog came directly over the graveyard. I walked back out of the main gates and looked down the path to see if the trail had become foggy, but it had not. The only thing i could think of was that it came from off of the pond. There was no sudden drop in temperature to produce something like that though, and i thought it strange. To make a long story short, we returned home, watched the video, and saw nothing spectacular. So we figured we would return about midnight to have a look around at night. It had been raining all day and we walked down the trail on a moonless night. Immeadiately upon entering the main gates, a bolt of a deer running through the opening near the pond scared us half to death. Then after it a few seconds, i noticed two green globes float across the graveyard. My brother says they were red, and it is a debate amongst us, but then again i have never heard of green globes in any ghost reports. The deer was already out of the cemetery so it ruled out any idea that it could be the reflection of its eyes. As we approached the middle of the cemetery i began to notice a loud steady beating of drums. At first my brother and I thought it was a car with loud music, but then after ten minutes it did not go away, the same beat and without any vocal music. It sounded like it was coming from inside the woods. I have heard about previous rituals that supposedly have gone on there and that worried me a bit. After leaving the place, we listened for music at the houses we passed in case someone might be having a party, but there was none. When we were in the middle of the grave yard, we all heard a distinctly human moan from where my brother was doing the ouija board earlier in the day. Then another one, and another one. All in all, three seperate moans. By this point, the air was filled with mist or fog. It seemed like it was swirling and moving about. There was like this intense closing in feeling in the air. My sister (who was also there) had gotten very nervous by this point, with the drumming and the moans and she complained that it seemed like voices were being carried across the air. So we left and as we walked back down the trail, the cemetery seemed to light up brilliantly the further we got from it. It seemed like the fog was glowing. And as we came to the road, we looked back and saw a white figure dart across the path behind us, with the shape of cloud like appearence. It was formless and white. I have not been back since, but plan on going back. I still need convincing as to if what i saw or heard was something extraoridary. Is it common for people to see this fog appear and dissapear the way i have over my visits?
