In 2009 when I first moved back to Florida and to St. Augustine, I played tourist often. I wanted to see everything and one day I decided to visit Fort Mose. When I got there, I realized there was no one else anywhere around.
I walked out the long boardwalk onto the marsh to see what was there and vision what was once there. As I was walking along and taking in the view and reading the historic signs, something caught my eye.
I heard movement off in the distance and when I looked up to see what it was I had to do a double take. I saw a rather large figure covered in what appeared to be reddish brown hair. It was a great distance away and on the marsh so it couldn’t and wouldn’t have been a human. It didn’t appear to have a neck, or a very short one if that. It appeared to be extremely tall, taller than any man and had very broad shoulders. It looked as if it were looking my direction. I then turned around to see if anyone else was there and might have seen it with me, but I was still totally alone. When I turned back around, it was gone!
Was it a Sasquatch? I don’t know for sure but ever since then I have more of a passion for the hairy guy.
