One gray morning in June, when we were in England, Alan and Barbara took us to a small sea coast town in Essex called Leigh-on-Sea. This picturesque place is actually located on the Thames Estuary at the far eastern edge where the Thames River flows out in to the North Sea (or is it the English Channel? Gotta go check my map.) .
We first drove past the lovely beach homes.
Then we saw the Leigh Library. Wouldn't you love to walk into this old brick building and choose books by Dickens, MacDonald, Lewis, Tolkien or Goudge from its shelves?
So many boats!
First stop was coffee at The Grove, just inside the patio doors, out of the wind but still with a view.
Having sufficiently fortified ourselves, we walked down to the harbor, where we passed the docks, catching glimpses of the estuary between buildings and boat ramps.
