Leigh on Sea is famous for both its cockle boats and cockle sheds where the cockles are cooked and then the shells I guess are either re-cycled and/or returned back to the seashore.
I love hearing the Sea Gulls, the Curlews and the sound of the tap, tap, tapping of the rigging against the aluminium masts of the boats
I love the varied assortment of seafaring paraphernalia to be found along the shore
I love the sound of the waves swishing over the shells along the shoreline
and further around the coast love seeing these gorgeous beach huts
(which I would love to own if they weren't so expensive)
We took a walk on Sunday along this stretch of the beach where the tide was almost up and the sailing boats were getting ready for some kind of regatta.
A light wind was whipping up and sails were raised
Up on the promenade this sign always tickles me
but I guess a man's gotta do what a mans gotta do!
I hope you enjoyed my beachy theme today.
I'd like to say a huge thank you to all you lovely people who have left comments on my recent posts. I'd love to reply individually but I guess I'm probably not the only person who cannot always find the time to reply. I just wish there was a "like" button as on Facebook that you could just let your commenter know you have read their comment. Anyway many thanks again.
See you soon x
