Cape Arago, Coos Bay, OR
I was a senior in H.S. and moved to the area when my dad retired from the marines. The Coos Bay/North Bend area was always home and where we went when my dad had leave because my whole family was from the area.
A buddy of mine from the football team took me out to Cape Arago one night and told me it was called "widows watch" because back in the old, days, when men were lost at sea, their wives would jump off the cliff. He told me he had seen ghosts there at night on several occasions.
It's not that I didn't believe in ghosts, but my friend was somewhat of a BSer so I didn't exactly believe his story.
When we pulled up to the viewpoint, there were deer everywhere and I remember there was a full moon that night. We walked around a bit and were starting to head back when we walked up to the rock wall and looked down to the beach. I saw what appeared to be a ghostly figure of a woman facing the ocean close to the crashing waves below. I turned to my friend and asked him if he saw what I was seeing and he wasn't at all surprised or scared like I was...he even suggested we back away from the wall and wait to see if she will make her way up to us.
I had more than enough at that point so we took off. I called him as soon as I woke in the morning to ask him if we actually saw something. He confirmed what we saw. To this day I still have my doubts just because it was so unbelievable to me.
