Jefferson, Texas

Marie Christopher was talking about her recent trip to Jefferson, TX at our last get together. Labor Day weekend was coming up so Jim and I decided to go for a visit.

It's a cute little town - lots of beautiful homes, B&B's and antique shops. But, the big draw is ghost hunting. We didn't know anything about all the ghosts until we went into the town on Friday evening (9/4/09). We went on a guided ghost walk around town. We didn't encounter any ghosts but we got to listen to lots of local stories.
The next evening we attended a ghost dinner at a haunted cafe. The dinner was pretty good - tasty spaghetti, salad, cookies. The guy who owned the building gave a talk. He was very strange. He's a ghost expert and used to lecture somewhere. He informed us of the difference between ghosts and apparitions- not to be confused with ufo's and aliens, of course.

I had lots of fun sharing what I learned at the dinner with the people sitting around the breakfast table at the Old Mulberry Bed and Breakfast the next morning. The Old Mulberry is a nicely appointed, pleasant B&B. It's in a residential area with lots of big homes and B&B's. We stayed in the Viking Sun room - big king-sized bed. I would have preferred a walk-in shower to the claw foot tub. The tub was difficult to get into but it was pretty to look at.

We spent Saturday searching through the antique stores in town. Sunday we went to a flea market in Uncertain, Texas. Another weird Texas town name...
I'd like to go again and see Caddo Lake in Uncertain. The pictures of it look so pretty.
