Florida Girl in the Great Northeast (Churches, Orbs, Leech Ponds and Stephen King)

Every once in a while I hit a wall. Like, I can’t take one more mundane, boring day kind of wall.

When this happens, as it did yesterday, I get in my car, put the pedal to the metal and look forward to whatever adventure awaits me.

My car took me to United Methodist Church in West Durham, Maine.

I read online that Stephen King went there as a child so, of course, it intrigued me. My friend had the “heebie jeebies” but I wasn’t bothered due to the adrenaline rush of the experience.

Of course, once we got back home from the adventures and looked at our pictures, I was freaking out! I’ve been taking pictures since I was old enough to purchase my own camera which was when I was around 16 years old.

Never, not in one single photo, did I ever have an orb.

Out of the 6 pictures I took of the inside of the church, 4 of them have orbs. Mind blown.

Another part of my adventure was going to the Runaround Pond.

Quote from online, “Runaround Pond in West Durham, close to Stephen King’s childhood home is the real-life inspiration for the ‘leeches’ scene in ‘The Body/Stand by Me’.

This will be a cool tidbit for my 25-year-old son but there is no way this trumped my church-visitation.

After those two stops we were basically just driving around looking for something interesting to photograph. We found a church on a big hill.

Now I had the major creepy heebie jeebies but my friend was easy-going about it.

She had me drive up to it. I’m sure it’s a nice church and the people are very friendly but why does it creep me out?

If you want to know more about this church, Google Shiloh Chapel, West Durham, Maine.

Now the floodgates have opened up on my interest everything spooky, haunted and Stephen King.

Don’t bother trying to figure me out. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
