A Walk Along The Pier

001

Southend pier is the longest in the world. It was built in 1830 to allow access across the mudflats for the boatloads of visitors arriving at the seaside resort from London. They came in search of its health giving waters and sea breezes. We came for fish & chips but Jamie and Jimmy’s Café was closed.

We eventually found our authentic seaside fish & chips a few miles inland at the Plough & Sail in Paglesham. A good place for another walk – Paddling up Paglesham Creek.

    Your last picture makes me smile. I don’t know what you call the peas, but we call them “English peas.”

    Just across the estuary, just yesterday (same day?) a scene at Margate seems remniscent of Alma Tadema.
