Lol I know that's crazy, I was only thinking aloud. Ghost or not, whatever out there is not a human hoax.

No wait,..maybe it's a time traveler from the future and something really important will happen on that road.

Or maybe it's a really old homeless guy who was way ahead of his time (technologically, that is)

I'm a skeptic about ghost stuff, so "have" to find a logical explanation somehow...no matter how outlandish! LOL (but hey, don't count me out on the ghost-hunting party!)

I consider myself at least somewhat skeptical but I'm also a person of probabilities. After seeing the light (especially if it does something) I'd say there's only a small chance of being non-paranormal.

I mean, think of the millions of experiences people have had in all countries throughout the ages. All the legends. I'm sure we could chalk up most to insanity, a logical explanation, hoaxes, or drugs but there's no way all of them can be explained like that.

Yeah, I've heard of the Grey Man on Pawley's Island and have a friend whose dad says he saw it one foggy...evening or morning (don't remember which) - the apparition was wearing a trench coat and walking down the beach. hm-m-m-m-m.... Sounds like more ghost hunting adventures await....

From what I understand, the Grey (or Gray) Man is not just a Pawley's phenom.
He was seen during the 30's tornado outbreak in downtown Charleston, and when Hazel raked the coast in '54 before coming ashore in s. NC.
No sightings of him during Hugo;, at least none I've heard of.

The first time I went to see the Summerville light (in High school mid 90's) was interesting.

Driving down the road we paused briefly and got out to see what we could see and there was a cows skull laying on the side of the road by an old couch. I was there with a bunch of friends and one of the girls was kind of freaked out by the cow so we mooed at her the rest of the night

We went a few more times after and once got brave enough to go all the way down the road and realized it was shep island road.

I haven't been in years.

There is a creepy abandoned church on 165 out towards Ravanel. I don't know any specific stories but even after being abandoned for quite some time (several years at least) the piano is never out of tune. It also has a creepy graveyard next to it.
