Today, I shall take you on a new trip. This trip will be a bit different as we shall go on the sea. You might ask me what will we do there? Well, we will stay and watch the sea and hope to meet a ghost. Yes, you heard well we will hunt an old ghost.. that if the ghost won’t hunt us down… This old ghost is the Flying Dutchman. A ghost ship that disappeared somewhere 17th century around the Cape of Good Hope, and it was doomed to never find her peace and never make to the port, sail the oceans forever.
Some over the years saw the ghost ship. Others believe that if you see it, your ship will be doomed too. But until we get to see the ghost ship let me tell you how they got to be lost on the sea. It seems the ship came to Cape in distress of bad weather and wanted to get in the harbor but couldn’t get a pilot to conduct her and it got lost forever. Since then the story says that you can meet the ship when the weather is bad.
We shall anyway try to meet it, to see if we will get doomed or maybe the captain will have a message from the other world for us. So what would you tell to the captain Hendrick van der Decken or to his crew? Some say that he wasn’t the kindest man. Legend says that he refused to enter the harbor even when the weather got to bad, some even say that he killed a crew member that wanted to sail the ship to the harbor, throwing him over the board in the sea. Some even say that the ship started to talk to him to tell him to go to a safe place but the captain made an oath to not go to the harbor. So he was cursed to never get to the harbor and sail forever.
So as today should be bad weather on the sea, maybe we will have a chance to see the ship. so grab my hand and let’s wait.
Mm… can you feel the wind, it seems is getting stronger and stronger, and fog is getting present. I hope we can still see it.
There! Can you see it? Looks like a ship …. is it the long lost ship? So much fog … and so cold…I do feel like I just saw a ghost… But did we?
