…By mid afternoon we were pretty bored and someone had the idea to bring out a Ouija board. I’d never used one before and had no idea what to expect. So I didn’t understand how unusual it was that it kept spelling out the word “help.” We studied each other’s faces trying to sus out if someone was moving the planchette. I still remember the frightened looks in my friends’ eyes. We didn’t know what to do with that word so we asked questions and it spelled out answers. Piece by piece a picture emerged….
…There were intermittent heavy rainstorms all over Britain. In Oswestry however, these took a strange turn. It is said that one day in particular, within a period of two hours the town was bombarded with hundreds- if not thousands of frogs falling alongside the rain from the sky….
The road between Acton Burnell and Cardington is known as ‘The Devil’s Causeway’, as The Devil created this road in a single night. He is said to wander the road still, appearing to anyone who chooses to walk this path at midnight. He takes the form of a man riding a white horse…
…Its waters are said to never fail and it has particular healing qualities for eye ailments. Its known locally as ‘Frog Well’ Though this idyllic scene springs to mind fairies or water nymphs- a more sinister creature likes to dwell. This creature is none other than the Devil….

…Lake Willoughby is regarded by many as just plain mystical. It’s formation is even the subject of spirited research, and research has continued to this day. My parents were Coastguardsmen, and as a young couple, went diving in this lake. This is no small feat. Lake Willoughby is one of the deepest lakes in New England, even though it’s so small. The reason for that is the bottom is incredibly craggy, and uneven. There is no true lakebed towards the center…. Just a field of large, rocky, stalagmite structures. Sonar imaging proves this. The true “depth” is not really known as a result, just approximations….
…Somewhere around where the road splits and heads either north towards Brookings, or South towards Crescent City, right where the Redwoods start again, we passed a particular tree with a hobbit-like round green door in it….
…I was deep deep in the forest, all seemingly uphill since I live on a mountain. Came across a very unusual tree. It was bent in on itself, almost completely in half. Just several inches from touching itself. Completely growing horizontal, but still standing and growing….
I have had dozens of experiences in this area (thus all the categories checked). Ghosts, “time travelers” (or whatever you call strangers who show up and know things only you would know about yourself), bipedal hedgehogs that saunter about like hobbits….
