On his way home from a long day's work, a young man driving his horse-drawn cart in Kennebunkport came upon a group of good-looking city girls who asked him for a ride. He couldn’t believe his luck and obliged. The gleeful teens chatted and sang as they went. All was merry until they came beside a quite normal-looking grassy knoll. Suddenly the young man and his passengers were screaming in terror. The formerly placid horse suddenly spooked, leaping away from the hill and racing down the road, nearly overturning the cart. As he grabbed the reins tight, the young man turned to see a pale apparition just 10 feet beyond, floating above them. About the size of a woman in long, snow-white trailing skirts, the frightful thing kept ahead of the panicked horse for almost a half a mile.
