Just some information about where this story had happened. My parents were by the woods, water and old mansions. These mansions have had a lot of history, many different families and many of different owners. These mansions are about 100 years old so now they are abandoned and animals are probably living in them now.
In the cold winter of 1985 my parents were dating. They were both sitting in my father's car listening to the radio and talking. After a half an hour later both my mother and father saw something coming down the road. They both knew it wasn't a car or person walking down the dark road at night. The object came closer and started coming quicker, now you could make it out. It was a ghost! It was a white mist that was floating above the ground. You couldn't really make out the face but you could tell it was a woman dressed in old fashioned clothes.
My mother told my father to drive away fast but my father didn't want to drive away. After a minute they drove away, after that night they never saw the lady again.
When I first heard this story I was 8 or 9 years old and I didn't believe my parents, until they told me that my cousin and my father's friend saw the same ghostly lady!
