iSee Swami Rock (aka Lover’s Leap)

From where she jumped...

Mijn hart zinkt als ik de zon in de zee zie zakken. Weer een dag verloren in de golven zonder mijn liefde hier aan mijn zij. My heart sinks as I watch the sun set into the sea. Another day lost in the waves without my love here with me.

About the lover’s leap

Francina's father, Dutch army commander officer van Reed, built this pillar in memory of his beloved daughter at Swami Rock. It records the date of the tragedy – April 24, 1687. It still stands there today.
