Leigh-on Sea


A Visit to the Thames Estuary 

We needed to get some picture framing as Hubs had just finished a portrait, and the only place we knew we could get DIY framing was Southend-on- Sea, as we set off the rain started, and it began to pour down, the roads were flooded and the sky was dark, if any friends are not familiar with Essex, Southend is on the Thames Estuary.   The Painting is on the right and the photo it was taken from is below. 

Framing sorted and weather improving we decided to go along the river to the Cockle Sheds at Leigh to buy some fresh fish, only one shed open but we stocked the freezer up.   Warm cosy glow in the shed but as we walked down to the beach the dark clouds were gathering,   The tide was out which uncovered the mud flats and beached all the fishing boats, managed to capture a few dramatic sky’s.   Made a dive for the car and went to visit Cousin Meryl for a welcome cup of tea. 

Well this is somthing new for me an experiment in wraping the words around the pictures, but I have run out of space for the dramatic pictures over the Thames, you will have to look in the album for the rest of the pictures, and I, with more practice will be able to better match the words to the pictures.   Many thanks to Barbie, Tani and Cheryl, without who’s help I would not have been able to do this, and to Dusty who inspires me to try something new.

I have complained about the weather but compared to Magick in British Columbia who was flooded and now has snow and Barbie in Edmonton Alberta who is now under Snow Blizzard warnings, See her dramatic pictures) we don’t have it too bad here.

How am I doing? Oh just enough space left to say

Om Shanti

      Hi, been a while, but stop by long enough to read and listen a bit.  Really good blog, the picture of sun in clouds tells so much, does appear to be winter now.
      We finally have cold now, in N. Georgia, and it will be even more so in the next few weeks.
    Take care….

    Hello Suki,

    Greetings, Suki.  It has been a long time since I was on the Thames.  In fact it was during WWII. Your descriptions of the weather and the surroundings are artfully done.  I love to see bloggers using the lanugage as it should be  used.
    About the 95-year old blogger, I had been given his URL in an email which I trashed and now I don’t know what it is.  However I did go in to look at his blog and it was a crashing bore.  Being old is NO excuse for being boring!
