Today's post is about a ghost still waiting for her loved one to come back to her. This story takes place at the Hotel Galvez. The Hotel Galvez is the home to many spirits and I have a feeling we will be discussing some of its inhabitants again at a later date but one of their most famous spirits is that of Audra. Audra was a 25-year-old beautiful woman who used to frequent the hotel.
With Valentine's Day this week, I wanted to focus on stories of ghosts that show love lasts long after death. There is no way that I could have romantic stories this week and not include my favorite spirit love story. I have mentioned this story before in an earlier post but I only briefly told the story. This is the story Nang Nak and her husband Mak.
I am a lover of horror movies. Especially creepy ones that deal with spirits, folklore, or urban legends. So when I found out that they are making a movie of La Llorona to be released a few days before my birthday in April, I was over the moon. You can check out the trailer here.
On November 24th, 1892, a young woman checked into the Hotel Del Coronado under the name Lottie A. Bernard. Ms. Bernard claimed to be from Detroit, Michigan. The staff at the Hotel Del Coronado stated that Ms. Bernard was a beautiful well-dressed woman who seemed reserved and ladylike in her manners. The staff also mentioned that Ms. Bernard seemed very troubled and melancholy.
A few months after Jeremy and I moved to Japan, my Dad passed away suddenly. He was a great man and I miss him a lot. Even though it’s been 2.5 years, I sometimes still struggle with it. After he passed I wrote post on Southern Ohana telling about his life. I highly recommend reading it before reading the rest of this post. Knowing who he was will help understand why I know my dad comes to visit me.
