Mysterious Pirate Father Christmas locket found on beach!

During the summer Whitstable resident Ms _____ and her daughter _____ were combing the pebbles for fossils near The Street: 

"It was such a hot day, and I'd just found a small coral impression in a pebble. I looked back down and there it was in the sand. An old necklace, shining in the sun. I cleaned the surface and the misty image of Father Christmas appeared, looking right at me. He looks a bit piratey but I'm sure its him" 

Is this a true-believing sailor's lucky Christmas charm, lost in a shipwreck many years ago, and washed up on the shore? Or something less exciting? 

The jury is out on this one, but Ms _____ concluded by saying "I'd swear that when I noticed it there was a brief flurry of snow over us." 

Ho ho ho Arrrrr! Shiver me tinsel!

The Ghost of Diamond Road *UPDATE*

The ghost of Diamond Road has been witnessed again! A grim spectre in a hooded cloak can be seen pointing menacingly at a postman. What does this mean? Has the postman been singled out? or does he have a parcel that won't fit through the new flat's letterbox?
As ever, please let me know your thoughts on this. But remember, try to sleep easy, theres bound to be an explanation.

The Ghost of Diamond Road

The original photo

I took this picture of the apartments being built near my house. I seem to have unwittingly photographed a ghost.

Theres no denying that the half built building has a sort of weird energy. Passers by have noticed a strange cold feeling as they walk past, and a feeling of being watched. But this photo is more than a vague feeling... is it evidence of a haunting? And if so can a ghost just move in? The flats aren't even finished yet.

See below for close ups of the photo. What do you think? Is it a trick of the light? Have you noticed anything strange around Diamond Road? Any weird noises or sudden temperature drops? If so please write in. I'm especially keen to hear any reports about the Ghost of Diamond Road.
