Yesterday I met up with an old friend at Liverpool Street station and we headed off to Southend. The weather was sunny but cold, although we didn’t realise quite how cold until we decided to walk along the pier. We had to keep stopping at the shelters along the way in order to get out of the incredibly biting wind. After a quick look at the RNLI station at the end, we headed back and found a small cafe where we had tea and hot apple crumble with custard – just what we needed!
After a wander along the sea front, stopping for a pint on the way, we headed back to London where we parted and I caught the train home. All in all, a good, relaxing way to spend a day. I should do stuff like that more often.
