Island Mystery: Banana Tree Ghosts

Uncategorized / Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Island Mystery is a series in which I give you clues about the mysterious island paradise that I am living on.

Stories about banana trees and ghosts are very popular here.
On nights when the moon is bright, the shadows of banana trees give a lot of islanders some ghostly experiences. 
Almost every islander have heard the story about a man who  slept on the roadside, because he was too scared to walk pass a ghost who was in his way. Just to see in the morning that it was only a banana tree under the moonlit sky☺ 
It cracks me up every time I hear that story!
Any funny ghostly stories in your neck of the woods?

  1. I believe in ghosts too and as in the previous comment have also caught orbs on my camera when out walking. The odd thing is I didn't know they were in the pictures until I got home and looked at them on my pc.

  2. We have a town north of us that has Ghost tours, I guess a lot of the people in the area think they have seen many ghosts.
    I can only imagine that if you have an active imagination, those trees blowing in the wind could give you ideas πŸ™‚

  3. I've heard lots of great stories about ghosts and think I might have seen one once. Your ghost story is great and I'm very curious about where you live… the Caribbean, Hawaii, on and on. Your pics are fabulous!

  4. Hi Summer, I'm not sure if we have a ghost in our house. Sometimes it seems so – for example, we are looking for a purse in my handbag: I look. Nothing. My husband looks after. Nothing. We go to the car together and search there. Nothing. We look again in the handbag – and the purse is there!
    Thanks for your nice comments!
    Hugs, Traude

  5. Good Evening Summer, Living here in England, there are many old castles and houses which are supposed to be haunted. Although I have never met one myself…. and to be honest I don't want to. I'll live here and they can live where ever they live and never the twain shall meet.
    I grew bananas when I lived in Cyprus and yes the trees do look a little odd in the moonlight.
    You certainly live on a lush green island.
    Best Wishes

  6. I always have a hard time trying to find the place to comment on your blog.. Anyways I don't believe in ghost because I believe that has to do with demons… But your story with the banana leaves is cute,.. Happy Wednesday Summer.. With love Janice

  7. Hi Summer. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your Island looks lovely. We don't have any funny ghost stories, but there is one that stands out in my mind. It's one where a sailor from long ago walks the beaches and warns residents of impending storms. He is call The Grey Man. Have a good week.

  8. The former owner of our home saw a ghost in the house. My daughter and a couple of her friends saw some sort of figure one night….a man in a cowboy hat. Me? Nope, haven't seen one at all!

  9. That's hilarious! I think we've all woken in the middle of the night to see something strange in our room–only to figure out it's a piece of clothing we hung on the door or something. Your eyes can play tricks on you sometimes.

  10. Praise the Lord no ghost in my neck of the woods. Of course for many years the story has floated around that the TAYLOR WILD MAN lives in the woods near my home. The wooded area near my home is actually in a little town called Taylor. Just glad I've never met him! LOL! Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
