One Fine Day at Glasson Dock

 

Glasson Dock was once a busy port at the mouth of the River Lune in Lancashire but these days only the occasional vessel calls there. The general cargo vessel Hanoi unloads a cargo of sand at the riverside jetty on a fine sunny day. The fishing boat moored before it seems to be a permanent fixture and not in sea-going order.

It poses the question of has the sand been shipped all the way from Viewtnam to Lanscashire then Les, and if so why?
Les Auld: Not quite so far Chris, just from Up North I think, thanks for the comment.
