Dutch Beachcombers – A Dying Breed
Dutch beachcombers are a dying breed. In the past, objects would regularly wash ashore on the beaches of the long Dutch coast and the Wadden islands in the north of the Netherlands. But modern shipping, fast rescue boats, and helicopters mean that fewer and fewer objects wind up on Dutch beaches. Beachcombers speak with nostalgia and pride about their hobby.
