Water Walker

This morning I had an interesting conversation with a man who was sitting next to me about paranormal subjects.


About fourteen or fifteen years ago, he was at Bradford Beach in Milwaukee with two friends. It was late at night and it was misty out in the lake. They observed a man out in the distance sitting on the sand. The man then got up and walked ON, yes ON, Lake Michigan! He kept walking on the lake going east and disappeared later. They sat there freaking out and stayed for about two hours and the guy never came back.

He did say that this person was tall and a dark figure. He was straight up with me and very serious what he'd seen.

We put two and two together and figure it was a ghost. Imagine that, someone gets up and starts walking on Lake Michigan!
