The Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; the spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; spirits of the Agustin Inn in the St Augustine Historic District, including a man in white, who walks through walls and who may also be the ghostly Chiles who "goes bump in the night"; the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; the thoroughfare popularly called Bloody Bucket Road and the similarly prefixed bridge and woods in Wauchula where, at night, blood appears in the water below the bridge and the sound of crying babies is heard from the woods (a murderous midwife is said to have been haunted by a bucket that supernaturally filled with the blood of her victims, which she tried to pour out at the bridge); the gash-throated phantom of Luc Simone Aury that haunts the area outsde of the Amelia Island Museum of History, formerly the Old Jail where he was hanged, in Fernandina Beach (his attempt at suicide failed and his throat was stitched by a surgeon but the long drop of the gallows caused his wound to open and shower the horrified spectators with blood - Aury couldn't have planned it better if he had tried!); the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; and sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
