Looking for shelter from the storm, the pair walked up to an abandoned house and decided to wait until the morning for a tow. During the middle of the night, they were awoken by a glowing figure of a seaman by the non-working fireplace. Thinking they were dreaming the sisters went back to sleep. When they awoke, they found seaweed and salt water by the fireplace. They eventually got a tow into town and discovered the home they were sleeping in actually was owned by a man who drowned.
