The boulder of Anes
found on the western side of the
northern reef of the small island of Lyø.
It have its name carved on the top.
It is actually too small for these
pages, but I only found that out, when I
spend a day and €120 to get to it
(diesel, bridge and ferry). And as I had
made the page already, it is on. As a
comfort, I add the biggest boulder on Lyø on this page. It is too small for
its own anyway.

upon a time, a witch; Lådne Ane lived on Lyø, and
her name was Ane. Her sons were robbers,
and were caught and executed. The people
of Lyø wanted to get rite of Ane too,
but it turned out to be hard. She
declared that she would never leave the
island, even after her death.
When she finally died, the placed her in
a coffin and put it into the sea. She
drifted ashore time and time again,
until she got tired of the game. She
turned the coffin into a rock, which
were left on the beach.
A variation of history tells us that a
wizard named Ane once tried to throw it
against Horne's church. However, it is
more likely that Ane was burned on the
spot and the stone was set over the
charred remains of Lådne Ane to prevent
her from coming back.
A third variation of the story it that
the stone is set on Anes's grave to hold
her down and prevent spooky. And another
edition calls Ane for Lådne Grete, and
tells that Lådne Grete was burned as a
witch on the big elongated rock.
The area is accessible on foot, but

rock. That have happened a lot of times,
and now, it have many large cup markings.
