Annegje II

Part of the tekst on the picture.

 

A nice anecdote from a crook from earlier times. It is about the mysterious disappearance of the peat ship Annigje 2, which was piloted by the infamous skipper Egbert Vosch, nicknamed Kwoaie Eggie. They robbed the Oranjekanaal and looted other ships. When they really raised a church on shore, it was enough for God. That intervened and the ship was sucked up in the clouds and disappeared with man and mouse. Historians dismiss this story as a folklore, but the locals know better. On foggy days, they still see a shadow of the ship floating in the mist.
