Visit to Swansbrough Manor ~ Shiver Me Timbers
limited budget. Then, when I moved to GA and started writing, I decorated for my stories and posts–which I shared with you again this year, in honor of Pookie. However, with a new full-time job on top of my full-time author job, I figured this year I would forgo the extra work. Unfortunately, for me, that also meant forgoing the joy I have at Halloween.
NOT SO! Last night I went to Swansbrough Manor to see their Halloween Haunts. I figured, “Okay, he made a small yard setup.” Boy, was I very wrong. So, won’t you join me as I traverse the thrills and chills of Swansbrough Manor ~
The event has grown so large, a kind neighbor across the street opened up a vacant lot for parking. As you approach, you are greeted by this pirate vessel. Let me tell you, pirates would have been thrilled with this vessel. It’s huge!
And that’s not the only one. There are four!
Ever see one of those paintings where the eyes following you? Here the eyes follow you and the song haunts you, until you find yourself fleeing for the witches abode ~ which is just past the phantom sailor
Where the witches wait, surrounded by swamps. Look out, those things nipping at your ankles might be alligators. I ran too fast to catch a picture of them. I did manage to see what she’d done with those pirates that hang around too long ~ Or, she let the mermaid have ’em ~
As we made our way through, the darkness shrouded any picture taking. Not that I was thinking about that…I was too busy running through. But I was stopped by one final offer ~ to spend my days and foreverafter within Davy Jones’ Locker ~
As we left, our pockets a bit lighter, all the proceeds going to a local school’s art and music programs, we stopped to thank Captain Steve for making Halloween the holiday it should be ~
