My wonderful scrapbooking weekend with the Scrapagogo girls has not only made me want to scrapbook more but also take more photos!  The kids were still on half term yesterday so we made the most of it by having a walk down Southend Pier and caught the train back.

At 1.33 miles long Southend Pier is the world's longest pleasure Pier and has some amazing views. 

This one looking back to the shore, in the centre of the photo you can see the famous Kursaal. The Kursaal was the world's first ever theme park, pre-dating Coney Island in America.

Halfway down the pier and the light is bouncing of the water.

The RNLI station.

The little train that took us back.

The pier from the beach.

My gorgeous big fella who actually enjoyed a day away from the x-box!

My little fella who was trying to throw stones out to the water and searched for crabs.

My little camera that I keep in my bag has panoramic shots so this is one I took in panoramic mode sweeping round from the pier to the other side of the beach.

Little fella is still off today so we are going to the beach with the dog and I am going to take some more shots. I also hope to grab some shots of the amazing colours of the trees at this time of year, it looks so wonderful and golden. I love this time of year and hope you are enjoying it to!

Of course I kept our train tickets and will make a scrapbook page of our little outing. I will upload my Scrapagogo projects soon, we had such a great time!

Wow - great photos... I think when we went to Southend - when A was younger - the pier had been on fire - I'm pretty sure of it - or was it the other pier - oh i don't remember. Anyway, so glad that the weekend retreat got your creative juices flowing... great pics - leading to great scrap layouts - i'm pretty confident they'll be great.
