I would have loved to have met them.

I have visited St. Augustine multiple times and have witnessed many things. I've been on every single ghost tour but I tend to find things when I'm walking around by myself. First of all my family and I stayed in ''the painted lady'' bed and breakfast.
This is not immediately in the heart of the old city but isn't too far. It's a periwinkle colored house built in the 1800s. We were the only guests for the night besides the owners. We woke up to footsteps doors banging purple orbs dancing around the room and even an apparition of a woman in Victorian clothing.
The backstory is that the woman who haunts the room (it was hers after all) died a spinster after her father banished her from being with the man she loved. In no way did we feel threatened. My little sister still swears that the ghost lady tucked her in at night.|
One night while sitting in the field near the fort I felt a presence looking down at me from the top of the fort. I turned and saw the shadow of a short man wearing a helmet and carrying a gun.
Assuming he was a Spaniard I yelled ''hola senor! ''. He looked in my direction again and vanished. The Huguenot cemetery outside of the old city gates has been a spot where I've seen many orbs and even a shadowy figure.
There is a sense of dread resonating from that cemetery especially at night. Overall even the streets are haunted. If you take a picture anywhere in St. Augustine at night you're bound to get an orb at least.
