Film Locations in Charlottetown

These two photos were taken in essentially the same place from the same perspective, off Water Street near the Marine Terminal on the Charlottetown waterfront. The first I took yesterday; the second in September 2016. 

A lot of stuff gets dumped here over the course of the year, and, depending on the season, and the stuff, it’s an ideal location for shooting your next film set in an exotic local during a time when the pandemic means you can’t get to, say, the Moon, or the tundra, or Oman.

Huh? Am I understanding you correctly, and so that is a mountain of, I guess sand that people had dumped there, but within less than four years has completely washed away?

The sand was unloaded from ships and piled in the yard, then gradually trucked away to places across the Island.

Aha! Thanks for explaining.

Maybe because neither landscape looked unnatural or weird to me, in the context of my travels through Oregon, it hadn't occurred to me that both photos showed sand! Also my screen resolution isn't the greatest. Makes sense to me now that your caption was no more explicit
