i went back to the spot, the place was completely empty not one person on the beach... i thought i saw someone but it was just trash.
at some point after recording the first 2 trees, i realized that my tape was not recording although it said record on screen both times... i had to refilm those areas, not sure how i lost the footage.
anyway, after passing the 3rd "tree", i entered a nearby path that was down pretty far by Davey's Lake. i had strange feelings immediately upon entering the path.
before too long, i heard what sounded almost like wind howling, but it sounded like it was MOVING from a single spot... if that makes sense? i walked pretty far down the path, presumably towards the old cemetery and i believe i felt a presence. i didnt hear anything at the time but it sounds almost like someone is breathing? on the tape? anyway at this point, i had been attacked by swarms of horseflys and bees and was pretty freaked out so i began running
then, towards the middle of the wooded area, i thought i heard a distinct growl of some sort? but it didn't sound like any animals i ever heard before. i am totally convinced something beyond ordinary is going on up there.
after having a personal experience, i am much more convinced much of the stories concerning the area are true.
i found some more information on the ghost stories on this page: *******www.craigmcmanus****/20110901.htm
McManus, a well known psychic and author, encountered some of those spirits when he and friends were hiking along an abandoned trail in Higbee, deep in the forest. He says he suddenly felt he was walking on "sacred land" and felt the presence of a group of Native American spirits, possibly from the Delaware tribe. The message, he said, was clear. Leave.
the area of cape may new jersey has many old victorian type hotels and businesses so it is a hotbed of documented paranormal activity. many reports of sightings and hearing things, seeing things move, etc... this particular spot is a reported native american indian burial ground, loaded with arrowheads and a few reported grave sites. there is an abandoned old church hidden in the woods near davey's lake... (manmade freshwater lake) with many reported sightings of a man in a black coat near the ocean or in the many trails through the extensive wooded areas. this is the ghost of thomas higbee, former owner of the area slave plantation. he is commonly seen after you have approached his former grave in the graveyard of the old cemetary. (his grave was excavated about a decade ago) some believe he is a restless spirit because he built a plantation, church and graveyard there in an effort to keep his family from selling the land. (which they did anyway, this could be part of why the spirits are not happy) sometimes reportedly with a large dog or chasing a former slave through the trails. he was a slave owner and this again, was a dark area of history so these ghosts are reported to be malicious spirits.
i think this may have contributed to why whoever put these items here may have chosen this area. my guess for the reason these precariously placed items havent yet washed away or been destroyed by other means (natural or human) is the recent supermoon.
there was a carved voodoo tree on the beach but it appears to have been destroyed/removed around 2009. alot of area to explore, very desolate area with some strange vibes
Comments from reddit, describing items from the area:
23 is a number holy to Discordians and represents the the Law of 5's (2+3=5) which is one of the main philosophies of Discordianism.
93 is the gematric shorthand for Aleister Crowley's maxim "Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole of the Law. Love is the Law, Love Under Will." It used to greet fellow Thelemites (Thelema is the occult religion founded by Crowley).
The All-Seeing Eye is a common symbol among conspiracy-tinged occult circles but it's modern origins can be found in Masonic symbolism as the "Eye of the Architect". Robert Anton Wilson uses it extensively in his Illuminatus! Trilogy which has much cross-over appeal between Discordians and occultists due to it's combination of themes from both.
Guys, look at the comments OP is leaving. I feel like this is a creepypasta in the making. Like we're watching the live version of it. OP's gonna get straight up haunted.
The number 93 and to a lesser extent 23 are connected to Thelema, an occult religion founded by Aleister Crowley. The eye in the triangle is also a common occult symbol.
The 23/93 means it is probably chaos magick using Thelemic elements.
Obviously there are some symbols here to work with. Stone and Water, offerings, boundaries..altar...snake. But what do they culminate in? No clue.
