Star of India San Diego, California
Last Saturday night, we were invited along on an investigation that we have been wanting to do for a few years now. Our great friends at California Paranormal Private Investigators welcomed us on board with open arms. It was an amazing feeling stepping onto a ship and back in time with such inspiring American history to it. For most Californians, the oldest buildings we get to visit were built in the early 1900s.
The Star of India is 151 years old, has circled the world 21 times and was finished being built a mere five days after President Abraham Lincoln's Gettyburgh address. That was just to put things into perspective.
It is the Fourth oldest ship still afloat and the second oldest ship in the world that still sails regularly. Each November, the City of San Diego still takes the Star of India out to sea once a year.
Now, THAT would be an adventure!
It was a small group and the ship is more than large enough to be able to have a few groups camp out in different areas of the ship and not contaminate any recordings or video. We started out in the Main Cabin where the Captain's Cabin is located. What struck us as the most odd, is how small the bunks were that these sailors had to sleep on for months at a time.
