Day out in S̶u̶n̶n̶y̶ Rainy Southend-on-Sea

It was cold. Then it rained. Then it snowed.

Today I travelled to ‘sunny Southend’ which, wasn’t actually very sunny at all. It was my uncle’s birthday so I visited Essex to celebrate. We decided to walk down the pier and eat a snack at the end. I don’t know what I was thinking because it was raining before we set off. The pier is 1.34 miles long and we walked it both ways. Too much exercise for a girl who has only just started the gym and is full of cold!

Before I attempted the pier walk...


Look how happy I was. I am so naive.

After battling the rain to get back to shore we stopped by Oliver’s restaurant. It is contained in a small hut on the seafront and was a great place to take a break from the weather and rest our feet.


Can you see the sea?

I ended up eating a fish finger and chip sandwich which was extremely appropriate as I was at the seaside. Tasted great too, thumbs up from me.



Last but not least, I saw the first snow of 2017 in Essex this evening!!!!!!! I was so disappointed the snow hadn’t made its way to London.


Adios amigos, until next time.
