Texel – the most important Dutch Wadden Island. – Gareth Mate


A number of the many particular objects that you will note listed below are large and are due to this fact housed within the giant exterior, courtyard areas. These treasures have been first found after which recovered by Texel’s North Sea fishermen; they embody anchors, buoys and oars and even full plane engines.

Wandering across the museum bought me considering the place these many objects as soon as began their journey. From names discovered on the objects, some have travelled lengthy distances and a few from shut by. I used to be drawn and captivated by the messages present in bottles. There have been many, housed on a collection of cabinets and all of them had a novel and private story written inside most likely all with the intention of in the future being discovered after which learn.

Being impressed by one thing related, I attempted it as soon as, with my sister, whereas enjoying on the seaside in France. As younger children, we thought it will be an awesome thought to attract an image after which write a brief message, to see the place it will ultimately find yourself. We hoped that after solid out into the ocean, we would ultimately get a reply after which plot the ultimate vacation spot on a map of the world. Sadly, with all good intentions we by no means truly bought the reply we would so wished for. For sure, for all I do know, it may very well be nonetheless on the market someplace, floating within the sea…

With that mentioned, many of those distinctive treasures, maintain nice private tales. After chatting and declaring a my curiosity within the museum, the very sort gents, who have been working throughout my go to, needed to take trip so as to present me some fascinating artefacts and clarify a little bit extra about them.
