As the evenings are very slowly getting longer and the sun is sneaking out even more, I thought I would show you some pictures from a recent jaunt to sunny Mersea Island in Essex.
We had a glorious day of gorgeous sunshine, which was perfect for showing up the brightly painted beach huts on the long beach at West Mersea. The whole island is a beautiful place to visit, especially at this time of year when you can enjoy the place virtually for yourself. It really is one of Essex's hidden gems, with the mystery of the sea, interesting architecture and vast expanses of land and coastline that hold a staggering selection of birdlife.
When you have finished your amazing walk then you must visit the splendid Art Café for tea and cakes, and also browse the artwork from the locals!
Now for some pictures.....
