My story is brief, the reason for posting it is to see if this has happened to anyone else.
This took place when I was around 12 or 13 years old. And really only just came to me now that I have been on this site reading many peoples' experiences. My parents and I went away every year at Christmas time to camp on the beach. Best holidays ever!
One night when we were camping I awoke in our tent to go outside for a pee. When I got up I noticed my dad sitting on the camp table having a smoke. I said "Pa, why are having a smoke in the middle of the night?" and I got no reply. I asked the same question again and no reply. I noticed that dad wasn't even moving, just holding the smoke in the tips of his fingers.
I thought it was really strange and went for my pee, when I came back dad was gone and in the tent. This really creeped me out because I knew I was awake! Anyway, I fell back asleep.
When I woke up in the morning I definitely knew it was no dream because I had grass and sand on my feet.
I asked dad if he was up during the night and why he didn't answer me and he said he hadn't been up all night!
I'm just curious to know if anyone has had a similar experience or maybe give some insight into what this may have been?
It was like I had seen the ghost of my dad, who is still well and truly alive!
Thanks for reading and please don't hesitate to comment. Although this never frightened me it was just plain weird!
Is there a chance I could have been sleepwalking? Although I have never done so before.
