On a Sunday afternoon, we often go to Southend for a stroll along the promenade. Today it was so hot, so we didn't stay long sitting outside Rossi's. It wasn't helped that we hadn't taken our sunglasses, the sun was dazzling.
The flowers there are still good and I wish I had taken a photo of the one bed of bright red and vivid orange pelargoniums because they were amazing.
Here is Victoria, this year we have watched her being cleaned.
We love visiting Southend, it's our favourite place.
