 By Kalila Katherina 

Turtle Bay is a newly renovated bar and restaurant that had a number of ghostly inhabitants. Once a favorite hang out with the vampire culture of the 1990s is now a mainstream hotspot for food, libations and lively New Orleans music.
The building is situated directly behind but Ursuline Convent, The oldest building in New Orleans. In the 1700s the lamb a part of the convent ground, and today only a small brick wall in the courtyard separate the two properties. 

  The Ursuline nuns originally came to New Orleans as nurses to care for the victims of yellow fever and Indian attacks. The nuns also use this land including that were Turtlebay is now situated to bury the dead. The courtyard is charged with energy typically found in burial ground. In a recent investigation of a residential outing we felt the situation I’m being pulled down words in this area. 
There is an active hunting here as well. During our investigation, we discovered the presence  

  of a female entity. Emily once oa servant here are the petite young woman with a little education.  She died of yellow fever on the property and continues to reside in the upper apartment of the building and in the kitchen.
 We were the first calleded in to do this investigation when the owner of the building noticed that his clothes were soaked with water after placing them on a chair when he undressed. There was neither a leak in the ceiling nor any other explanation for the sudden water. One employees reported that kitchen appliances often turned on spontaneously. A knife flew across the room on its own and Broke. The tip of the knife was never found.  Recently a family on the tour captured a thick Fogg of ectoplasm in the seating area at the bar. The ghost seems to enjoy the music and visit from tourist, but is a bit picky as to whom is in her kitchen.
