A Memory of Runcorn

Here is the sand we called Ferry Hut. I don't know of any hut ever being there so how it got its name is a mystery to me, maybe someone will tell me some day, but sand castles and paddling and big ocean going ships I do remember, they was enormous with a tug on the bow and a tug on the stern, a fantastic sight, and waves to jump over, the sailors would wave and shout "Jagaraho" whatever that meant. Wwonderful days but the water was dirty and the water left an oily mark on the sand, but now it's clean with fish and swans on the canal. I hope one day more use will be made of the canal.
