    Southend Pier. (My home coastal town 40 miles off the Thames)

    At 1.5 miles, it’s the longest pier in the world!

    I suggest Andy go have a lie down while Flo enjoys the boat ride.

    Yes, it only beats the pier in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland ( where I lived many,many years ago ) by less than one tenth of a mile.

    I’d never allow Andy aboard my galleon, The Irish Rover. We’d have to treble lock the spirit stores.

    Hoo boy where do manage to find your links?
    I was feeling down in the dumps this morning but your link to cheer Starlet up, perked me up and I have a nice earworm
    You don’t need to worry it was just a case of the blahs

    The check is in the mail. It’s for one million old Italian lire

    I have a fond memory from 8 years of meeting my then frail mother at the entrance of the pier and taking her on the train that travels the length (you can also walk it) and treating her to breakfast alfresco style at the other end.

    What a beautiful place and a touching story. Thanks for sharing. What kind of animal life would you commonly see at the end? I am from Monterey County and we commonly saw sea otter, sea stars, seals, sea lions, jellyfish, sea urchins, dolphins, and grey whales.

    When I lived in Dun Laoghaire, I had a Borzoi ( Russian Wolfhound ) that used to like to exercise on the pier. After a good strenuous run, he’d repair to the closest pub, with me dutifully following.

    Starlet

    Misery loves company

    I really don’t know what Andy’s hangovers…er …hang-ups about boats is all about. He should be used to the pitch and yawl and the queasiness. After all, isn’t that what he experiences every night crawling home from the pub ?

    O.K. how’s that for relevance ?

    You were as good a son to your sainted mum as my boys are to us
