In the early morning the sea flexes its power and sends scouting parties of moisture ahead to scout the land.

The white ghosts survey the land.

They creep through the fences, over the walls, and around houses. They slink across intersections and hide behind corners.

When the sun comes out they scatter and head back to the sea to report what they have seen, preparing for the day when the ocean will claim its own once more.
