  1. Aah, that's how they're called, I forgot:) Beautiful shadow display here. We strawled there a lot, looking for shark teeth ('Het Zwin'). Did you know the teeth you'll find there are thousands of years old or older and almost none of them are recent? I always found that fact quite fascinating. Posted 10 years ago
    1. Hi Ludo,
      We did find a few shark teeth over there. Sadly a lot of the sand was gushed out, so there aren't as many as before. Luckely we found a lot of very old (fossil) shells.
