A small unplanned but pleasant intermezzo was provided by Jan Zijlstra, an inhabitant of theMunicipality of Dongeradeel. Together with other inhabitants, he is making efforts to have the village of Holwerd reconnected to the sea. Although there is a ferry that sails from Holwerd to Ameland, the harbour is two kilometres outside the village. On the basis of the Holwerd aan Zee plan, they hope to restore the former water link to boost tourism in the region.
