My mum is 70 this month and she chose for my sister and i to take her to West mersea island, she loves the sea food there. This was a first for me, we loved it.
West mersea is a working harbour, they have a small shed where their catch is cooked and sold to the public.
This the sign in the window :)
Once inside you there is a very relaxed atmosphere, the decor is very basic with a kind of simplistic charm. You bring your own drinks and bread with you, then you order from the menu which changes daily due to what is caught that day. The sea is just outside the back door!
My mum and i shared a plate of oysters, they were delightful,
My sister had scallops, they looked mouth watering :)
We all had the tiger prawns, the aroma was amazing!
When i was expecting our milly i took a liking for jellied eels and have loved then ever since,so, it goes without saying i just had to try them.
We thanked God for our time together and the lovely food on our table.
After our bellies were full we headed for the beach,
I take a paddle in the sea in my wellies
My sister took this photo of me,
This was a beautiful day and we are ever grateful to be together x
