So gross i like mine with the little ghostly children more mason listen happy where mine is about a man who eats dogs and jumps into your car when you drive along has god to my the dog. Wanna go to cannon. Beach i do. It's beautiful there now. i really really do. I really cannot wait until we can start traveling again. 'cause like these urban legends and go stories. I really want to go. Visit the places i agree. That would be really fun. We're go story. Do you have well as you know while you may not know. Galveston is considered one of the haunted. Like most haunted places in the world. I'm it has such a rich history full of just like doom and gloom. It's a wonderful place. I grew up there by. It is scary like when you really start looking into the history of it and they have so many go stores. I can't even tell you. So what i'm to talk about today. Is the hotel galvez right now. Have you ever stayed there. not okay. we haven't either but it's yeah it's like the most famous hotel in galveston back in the day. It was called the what was it. It was the party of the south west. now it was something else. Oh the playground. The party of the southwest. What is wrong with your child. The playground of the southwest jimmy stewart had stayed there and frank sinatra and all these presidents it was just like the super duper fancy hotel. But when you start looking into the history of it it's very creepy so it's located on the seawall so it is right there on the beach and we also have like now in galveston they have pleasure pier which is like this amusement park net goes out into the water and it's right by it's like just a few blocks so it's a very popular spot but back in the early eighteen. Hundreds the aaron coa tribe native american tribes occupied the whole gulf region of texas and that included galveston. They were heavily tattooed. Had a bunch of piercings at they were cannibalistic. They use to eat the flesh of their captives in order to gain their power in their strength route so of creepy but kind of like if a happened. That's amazing. I mean i don't want to but like that is a tough ask tribe. Yeah definitely on your bad side. Make gosh and they get piercings and tattoos and no back. Then they didn't have all the the sanitary we have. Now choose live. And then ma maybe because they ate their people and got their strength Bite in eighteen seventeen. The notorious higher. It jean lafitte wrench pirate he occupied galveston from eighteen seventeen to eighteen twenty one and in eighteen nineteen some of his other fellow. Pirates kidnapped a parent kala woman and in response the tribe came to attack him while he was prepared for it and sent guns and cannons their way. Needless to say it was a bloodbath. That john lafitte one killing most of the men in the tribe and it forced them to leave the island. So that's already like this is what galveston is at this point. Okay then in eighteen fifty three. There was a huge yellow fever outbreak and approximately they're only five thousand residents in galveston and about sixty percents of them. Got it and then five hundred twenty. Three people died from it but galveston is really known for the nineteen hundred storm. Big category five hurricane came through and it killed an estimated. We don't know exactly the number but it killed an estimated six thousand people in just twelve hours. It was awful. I remember on this coast where i went online at like the The what do you call it going over the water like the bridge. my god. it's the what's that thing that goes over the water that you can like. I'm so happy not me. It's like a translate no. it's a bridge. The bridge was completely destroyed. So there is no way to get help to the island like it was just. They were on their own for a while. After this storm they had so many bodies dot they had to just throw them on these carts that horses would take to the ocean and they would bury them at sea or just dispose of them at sea honestly but there is one place. There was an orphanage called saint. Mary's orphan asylum doesn't that sound welcoming an order them an orphan asylum and i looked to see like does this mean it was crazy. Or 'cause that's kind of like we movie about that. They're probably have. If you about that. But i feel like there's the orphanage that was scary. I was scary. That was good. Yeah it's an orphan asylum. I don't know what that means. If it's just like the nice word for asylum you know like there's the nice version. Oh i'm seeing okay you so. I think it's more that instead of insane but saint mary's or asylum. It used to sit on where the hotel is currently located dots. The bite of this orphanage in during the great storm there right on the beach and this was before the seawall was built. So like i mean with those storms like when that water starts to rise it just like in the the island so this orphanage ninety orphans and ten sisters were killed in this orphanage during the storm. And can you imagine. I mean look. We've been through hurricanes. Yes i was through two or three while and i we were far. Inland and i was still terrified. Imagine being like on each when those waves are seriously so sister. Catherine tied a rope around herself and nine of the other children to keep them all together and try to get to higher ground and they were discovered still tied together they had drowned or some and so most likely the road to that seeing that win over the water today ask you mean like a roadway above water. I don't know if they made it there. So this class where the bodies were found though is supposedly where the spa at the hotel. Galvez where the spa sets. That's where the bodies found. Please tell me they've had.

"It's like it's crazy getting to stories. Okay so i. I'm going to be talking to everyone about the fillet. That's my french coming out. I took two weeks of Duolingo ready so too. I talk about the way. I we have to talk about. Jean lafitte. who was the famous pirate. That i'm sure a lot of people heard about now. I've heard of him. And i don't know if you have or not but i don't know much about him but what's interesting is that he was kind of a horrible pirate movie but also kind of glorified like i think. There's statues of him. So i was like what's the deal. Well he's an asshole but there is one reason somebody get into his history a little bit because it ties directly into the fillet.

His main commodity was african slaves because the united states outlawed international slave imports in eighteen. O eight so laffite. Purchase slaves in the west indies where they were cheap and then smuggled them into louisiana where they were expensive because of this federal ban on slave imports.
