So, even if you don't like the city/ town/ village/ hamlet you live in, there is always somewhere you love near where you live. For me, it's the beach:



Where do you love?

I didn't start out loving where I live...I actively hated it...but then that was do with my bro passing away and not wanting to be around those memories. As time has gone on things have got lets, shall we say harsh/pointy/unpleasant and now I actually really like Burnham on Crouch. Despite it being in the middle of literally nowhere it has it's beautiful spots. The harbour is lovely, the people are older and more likely to smile at you, and it's quiet...so quiet...I can have my window open all night and sleep soundly and be woken by bird song in the morning. Bliss! The train journey in from London is fabulous and rolling countryside and the Crouch estuary opens out before you (the drive in and out gives spectacular sunsets/rises too).

I'll try and post some pics soon.

Obviously the place is much nicer in the summer than winter smile.gif

Goodness, another Essex creature on these forums. B-on-C is but a meagre hour away from me. Having said that, I've never ventured any further into that little peninsula than Maldon and South Woodham Ferrers (Tropical Wings!).

Looks perdy!
