Monthman Visit

We went to Point Pleasant, West Virginia to check out the legend of The Month Man.
In November 1966 Mothman was first seen in Point Pleasant. He was describe as seven feet tall with a piercing shriek. He was said to have 10 foot bat like wings and huge red glowing eyes. Mothman scared the residents of Point Pleasant for over a year. There has been over a 100 people who have claimed to see him!!!
Some residents thought he was a mutant that happened at the local chemical and weapons dumps. Some people even said he was the curse of Chief Cornstalk ( there will be a post about him later in another blog post )
On December 15, 1967 the Silver Bridge, which connected Point Pleasant to Kanaga, Ohio suddenly collapsed into the Ohio River. 46 people lost their lives that day. If you talk to some of the people in Point Pleasant they will tell you, they believe Monthman was sent to warn them about the bridge. Others believe it was triggered by a sonic boom from Mothman's wings.  After the collapsed of the bridge Monthman was never seen again.
Author John Keel wrote the book The Monthman Prophecies. In 2001 a movie based on the book came out it stared Richard Gere and Debra Messing. 
The town of Point Pleasant has embraced Monthman, they have a museum that sells anything you could want on Monthman. They also have a Monthman Festival and the coffee shop across from the museum has cookies made in the shape of Monthman.
I really enjoyed visiting this town and learning about the history of Monthman. I don't know if he is real or not but I think there had to be something that these people saw. When you talk to older people and they all tell you the same thing then there has to be something real to the story. If it was a lot of young people who were telling you this you would think they might have all got together and came up with a "story", but older people do not just come up with stories. 
If you ever have the chance to go to Point Pleasant you should go. It is a neat little town to visit that is so full of history.

Georgetown, Ky. Peddlers Mall

Me and my mom took a trip to Georgetown, Kentucky to visit the Peddlers Mall they have there.
This place is a mix between a antique mall, a flea market, and a bargain paradise. They have all kinds of things. You can find everything from tools, clothes, candles, Christmas items, bath bombs (which is one of my favorite things), to baby items and everything in between. If you are looking for Christmas decorations this is the place for you. There was one booth there that has some very pretty decorations, I will post a couple of pics of it. Also if you have a lover of bath bombs in your family then there is a booth there that they will love. They had some of the cutest bath bombs. I bought a couple of them and they were great!!! I love anything that has to do with ghost and they had some bombs that was shaped like a ghost so I bought one of those. I will post a couple of pics of them also. 
I love looking at all the antiques and seeing how you can take something and change the look of it by doing a little DIY and you have a unique piece.
The people that worked here are very sweet also. They are willing to help you anyway they can. 
This is a good place to go and walk around as see what kind of treasures you can uncover. 
The peddlers mall is located at 400 Outlet Center Drive. Unit 270. Georgetown, Ky.

Cataract Fall, Indiana

We took a road trip to Cataract Falls, Indiana to check out the waterfalls. Not only does this park have a waterfall it has two sets of waterfalls, which in my opinion makes it that much better. This is a beautiful park that has a covered bridge which I love and a old time General store. Its like stepping back in time. The lady that was working at the store the day we were there was so sweet and she didn't mind me taken pictures. The falls are on Mill Creek and they create a cascade that drops 86 feet, making it the largest waterfall in Indiana. It has a upper falls and a lower falls. The covered bridge was built in 1876 and it makes a beautiful spot to have photos taken. We had a great time visiting and I know we will be going back again. The drive to get to the upper falls takes you through the woods and it is so pretty. If you go in the Spring or Fall all the trees look so beautiful. It is a great place to go and spend the day.

Hamilton, Ohio Visit

We took a trip to Hamilton, Ohio to do some exploring and see what this town had. Hamilton is a very pretty place that has a lot of history. It was founded in 1791 and was called Fort Hamilton. There is a lot to see while you are visiting. They have some neat stores as well as a lot of statues. It is almost like a art town. I love places like this that are filled with so much history and art. When we visited it was very cold and cloudy as you tell from the pictures, but that did not stop us from making the most of our visit. We went there for the pumpkin carving festival that they were having. I am not sure but I think they might have this every year. If they do you really should check it out, it is so cool to see how they carve all of the pumpkins. If you want to check out the post I did on it this is the link http://lyinnwolf.blogspot.com/2015/05/pumpkin-fest-in-hamilton-ohio.html
We had a great time and can not wait to go back and visit again.
