Flotsam and Jetsam - Holland

A couple of months ago I found this amazing documentary by Journeyman Pictures on YouTube. The documentary features a Dutch island known as Texel, where a lot of items washes up ashore.

The island of Texel is located in the north of the Netherlands. 

The video states:

'Due to the surrounding tidal system, vast amounts of what is lost at sea, ends up on the shore'. 

The video explores the stories of several people and their experiences with finding pretty much anything on the beach that has washed up ashore. It's a 13.33min video but definitely worth watching. The things found on the beach, range from personalised messages in a bottle to a left shoe. 

The people speak either Dutch or English in the video and subtitles are provided.
