No mission was established here, however. The string of Spanish Missions established over the next 50 years followed a more inland route through San Jose.

San Gregorio was a booming town in the 1850s, when wealthy San Franciscans would travel to the San Gregorio House by stagecoach to enjoy fishing, sea bathing, boat races; the building still is no longer a functioning hotel. In the nineteenth century, a Chinese community had lived along the creek which runs through San Gregorio however, the buildings of the former community were washed away due to heavy rains; the San Gregorio General Store has been operating since 1889. The original stagecoach stop stands across Highway 84 from the store. In 1915, the community was home to seven cheese factories.

Supernatural horror film

Supernatural horror film is a film genre that combines aspects of horror film and supernatural film. Supernatural occurrences in such films include ghosts and demons, many supernatural horror films have elements of religion. Common themes in the genre are the afterlife, the Devil, demonic possession. Not all supernatural horror films focus on religion, they can have "more vivid and gruesome violence". For such films and other media, critics distinguish supernatural horror from psychological horror. Mathias Clasen writes in Why Horror Seduces, "Supernatural horror involves some kind of suspension or breach of physical law embodied in or caused by some kind of supernatural agency such as an uncanny monster or a ghost... psychological horror, on the other hand, does not involve violations of physical law, but features naturalistic menaces and scenarios." Paul Meehan distinguishes supernatural horror films from psychological horror, "The threat to societal order comes from something preternatural or anomalous: a haunted house, a curse, or a monster like a vampire or a werewolf."Charles Derry, writing in Dark Dreams 2.0, contrasted supernatural horror and pseudoscientific horror as "two basic methods of explaining things away" in horror stories.

Derry wrote, "Into the supernatural group one could fit all the monsters and horrors that are somehow involved with religions and ritual," highlighting witchcraft and reincarnation, zombies. Supernatural horror became prevalent in the 1920s and the early 1930s with German expressionist films; the genre became more commercially popular in the 1930s with Universal Studios producing Universal Monsters films, the films "were set in a mythical Transylvania or other Eastern European locale, in an unreal fantasy world far divorced from everyday". Meehan said, "This served to make the creatures of the night that populated these films into harmless chimeras comfortably ensconced in the faraway past." In the early 1940s, supernatural horror films had more contemporary settings, but the genre was superseded by psychological horror films. By the end of World War II, the supernatural horror genre "met its demise", being overshadowed by the atrocities of the war. By the 1950s, science fiction horror films had replaced supernatural horror films, psychological horror films became more popular in the same decade eclipsing supernatural horror.

The few supernatural horror films that were produced in the 1950s were set in haunted houses, a continuation of haunted-house films prevalent in the 1940s. In the 1970s, the films The Exorcist and The Omen revived the supernatural horror genre. Literature was used as source material like with the earliest films, with the written works of Stephen King being adapted into Carrie and The Shining; the film Poltergeist was a genre highlight in the 1980s. In the 2000s, violent horror films called. By the end of the decade, supernatural horror reclaimed their popularity; the found footage film The Blair Witch Project had achieved fame in 1999, in the late 2000s, Paranormal Activity succeeded with the same film technique, which led to a film series that lasted until the mid-2010s. The highest-grossing supernatural horror film, adjusted for inflation, is The Exorcist, it has an unadjusted gross of over $441 million with the original release and 2000 re-release combined. In 2013, Variety's Andrew Stewart said supernatural horror films grossed more at the box office than other horror sub-genres.

Stewart said, "Generally speaking, playability for that subset of horror films—meaning slasher and torture porn pics—is far less reliable... That's why filmmakers, who are looking to cash in on the lucrative business of making low-budget horror movies, should skip the slasher genre and stick to good ole’ fashioned spectral storytelling." Box Office Mojo lists the following, not adjusted for inflation, as the ten highest-grossing supernatural horror films at the United States box office: It The Sixth Sense The Exorcist It Chapter Two What Lies Beneath The Blair Witch Project The Conjuring The Ring The Nun The Grudge Cherry, Brigid.

Peter Donaldson sailed on Port Seton Harbour and it is recorded that in 1962, he was on a voyage from Bass Strait Islands with a cargo of livestock, when the vessel Sheerwater was lost off Ninth Island, he and his crew were saved and there are still remains of the ship on the island today.

Henrietta died on 20 November 1997, Donaldson married Susan Elizabeth Horwood on 5 September 2001, she writes under the names Susan Moody, Susannah James and Susan Madison. In 1963, Donaldson obtained a BSc degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Edinburgh, he received a PhD degree from the University of Tasmania, where he was, from 1967, a lecturer in applied mathematics and, on occasion, Dean of the Faculty of Science until his retirement in 2003. Subsequently, he has been professor of applied mathematics at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.

In accordance with the statutes of the Danish Royal Orders, both he and his daughter were granted a coat of arms, this for display in the Chapel of the Royal Orders at Frederiksborg Castle. The main field of Donaldson's coat of arms is or tinctured and shows a gules MacDonald eagle and a Sable tinctured boat both symbolising his Scottish ancestry; the chief field is azure tinctured and shows two gold Commonwealth Stars from the Coat of arms of Australia, a gold infinity symbol in between, symbolising his career as an Australian mathematician. Above the shield is placed a barred helmet topped with a gules rampant lion, turned outward; the lion is derived from the Scottish coat of arms and from the arms of Tasmania and Hobart. The coat of arms of The Crown Princess is identical to that of her father's, but a gold rose is depicted as her personal symbol, instead of the infinity symbol; the heraldic crown of a Crown Prince of Denmark is placed above her shield.
