Taking a walk around our old town was a little sad. Some of it is a little run down, but new building will be going up - no doubt, in the near future. We left the pier hotel and had a nostalgic wander, but one can't get the feel on a mid December winter's day.
In the Summer, the place is rammed with day trippers and all the arcades are alive with punters. Still it was nice to have a walk about. It was better coming home to the Fenland though. I lived in Southend-on-Sea for 25 years and have fond memories of the place. However, I think I wore it out and it was time to move on. Moving on is always a good thing. It stimulates a person to get up do do more things.
