Throughout the history of St. Augustine, Florida, there have been many a night when eerie winds blew across the sea and cried forlornly through chattering tree tops. During such weather, the time has been right for telling a ghostly tale or two. Of course, in every telling of such a tale it is claimed that the story is true or, the ghost is real. Within the pages of this book we will trace a sometimes ghostly tale of love and abandonment and find out about the people and places involved. Along the way we will discover lost history and experience frightful storms. From the recognizable and popular landmarks of St. Augustine, the lighthouse, the Castillo de San Marcos, Mission Nombre de Dios and Casablanca Inn we will enter into a world where a mysterious woman appears to a modern day sailor and, on a dreary, tempestuous night, two lovers wrestle with their own reality. You may not elect to read this when you're alone on a rainy night or prior to taking a short sail on a windy day. You may find that the story told has taken place in your own life and the same lost mariner who haunts these pages also plies the very water upon which you sail or even the harbor in which you rest. This is an actual story based on true events that will slowly creep up in a series of cold tingles and then grip your shoulders with icy fingers. Finally, you may ask yourself the question, when was the last time I was actually afraid of falling in love?
