I wanted to go back to St. Augustine this week for another visit before I went back to work next week, but all of the rooms at the St. Francis are filled :

Most of the activity I have experienced centers around the Tolomato cemetary. This cemetary rests on Indian burial grounds and was established as a Catholic burial site.
A simple unassuming grave marker rests at the front of the cemetary next to a formidable tree. This is the grave of James Morgan, a five year old boy laid to rest due to complications from one of the 19th century's widespread diseases. On Halloween of 2003, we took the paranormal tour, which allows its participants to utilize Guass meters, and gives insight into the scientific aspect of ghost hunting. I spoke to the guide concerning the story I had heard of James, who has been spotted climbing the large tree at the cemetary gates. The guide said that James is a mischevious ghosts that likes to play tricks on people who ackowledge him by name.
Our tour approached the Tolomato at midnight, and I broke off from the crowd. I muttered "James, if you're here, show me a sign" so that it wasn't discernable to the tour participants (didn't want them thinking I was crazy after all). I rejoined the group and stood toward the back. No more than 30 seconds after enticing James, I was treated was a swift slap on my lower back, as if two small fingers were forcably slapped on my skin. I whirled around, demanding to know if the two women behind me had hit me, and was met with bewildered gazes. I looked for my husband, who has a propensity for playing tricks on me, and he was well out of reach.
At this point, I had created quite a stir with the tour, and I quickly told the guide what I felt. He asked me if I though it was James, and I was certain it was.
Shaken, we returned to our starting point, and I lifted my shirt where I was slapped, and the group gasped at the red mark left exactly where I said I had been hit.
When we returned to speak to the guide again months later, we found out that only a week after my incident, the same exact thing occured to an older gentleman who had no knowledge of my story.
We have since captured strong orbs at that site in our photos, and the presence always seems to prefer when children are near.
I have attached a photo taken at the Tolomato just above James's grave.

As for cameras, my recommendation would be to check the Sony line if you're looking at investing in a digital camera. But no matter what brand you buy, I always recommend getting one with a rechargeable lithium battery.
