boats and more of Mersea Island…

Needing relief from London’s claustrophobic crush on Saturday I took myself off to Mersea Island for the day to bask in sight of the open seas. It’s in Essex. It was nice.

West Mersea is the main town and is bigger than it looks on a map. I enjoyed it’s decrepit boats propped on the slip yard’s mudflats.

Decided to try some of the famous Mersea Island Native Oysters along with my (v ordinary) crab pasta. They forgot my order. I won’t tell you the name of the establishment, they don’t deserve your custom. So instead I had to re-live the exquisite memory of the Mersea Island Rock Oyster imbibed at Borough Market.

There’s even a resident seal who keeps a sharp eye out for any tidbits from the people fishing.

Walking the beach I noticed water bubbling up out from the sand – it was fresh! Here’s a boring video of it 🙂
