Usage examples for flotsam
The cliff glistened with oilskin- clad men, many of whom bore long, clumsy telescopes, while others in great high boots, and with their sou'- westers tied beneath their chins, walked amongst the foam, a coil of strong rope upon their shoulders, and a boat- hook in hand, ready for anything in the way of flotsam and jetsam that might come ashore. – Menhardoc by George Manville Fenn
