Another Beach, Another Walk

The title of this film is self-explanatory, really. It's a sequel of sorts to last years 'A Walk on the Beach', although it's a completely different beach and the weather is much nicer. Anyway, enjoy:

Actually, perhaps some explanation is necessary. This particular beach was used during the D-Day preparations back in 1943-44. Not only were lots of troops and vehicles (including some of the DD Shermans) embarked on landing craft and ships here, but the Mulberry harbours were constructed on and launched from the beach. All that concrete I wander around are the remains of the stands where the Mulberrys were built, and some of the launching rails can also be seen.
