Ghost ship.

Today is a foggy day in Eastbourne.  When the fog settles on Eastbourne in really settles.  In the town it's drizzling and misty, but out to sea it's thick fog.  Walking back from my lunchtime mission to Tesco (I needed fake chocolate), I decided to cut across from Seaside Road and walk along the seafront instead.  As I came up pasted the Redoubt (an old Napoleonic fortress which now holds the Sussex Regiment Museum), I saw out of the corner of my eye something on the horizon.  Looking back there she was.  A tall ship.  Full rigged, but looking becalmed.  When I turned to get a better look she was gone.  It happened again about ten minutes later.  I have of course seen tall ships off this coast once or twice before but always on clear days and always in the summer, never in spring.
