Edje van Wijngaarden is a regular customer at RataPlan Spijkenisse, "A 'regular customer'," he chuckles. Every day between half past one and half past three he sits at his regular table in the coffee corner. “I know a lot of customers and I also talk to the ladies who work here. Sometimes I can help a bit with packing things. "
"I like a chat"
Edje greets customers passing by and he often makes a chat. "I like a chat and I can't sit at home," he explains RataPlan. “I have to go outside. My wife died three years ago and my father died a year ago. Now my stepson and I have to pick up the thread again. ” So every day Edje takes his bicycle and makes nice trips and on the way back he always passes the thrift store. He takes his camera to photograph ships. In the past, he also managed to capture seals on the Maasvlakte on film. “My wife thought that was so beautiful. She was very proud. ”
