A Sunny Morning at Clacton Pier

This week something amazing happened. The sun come out, it was getting warm and we had a morning with no plans or appointments to go to. As soon as Darren woke up he suggested going to visit the sea. So with Ethan at school we jumped into the car to go and get some fresh air in the sun.

I wanted to see what children’s rides they had now as we know that there was work being done during the winter months. We were there so early that the ride area that Ethan loves was closed so we couldn’t walk around but we did spot some of the new rides and worked out which ones had been removed.

We decided to take Little E for a walk along the empty pier. Just like her brother she loved watching the sea, I think she also said the word ‘sea’.


As with any visit to the sea you have to walk along the beach. Little E has taken to throwing stones into the sea with her brother but this is clearly his influence as she didn’t go to throw any stones on this walk.

It was only a short walk but it was nice to be able to enjoy the sunshine whilst it was quiet.

    It looks absolutely lovely! Such beautiful photos of Little E. We never experience the sea when it’s quiet as we only ever go in August!

    What a lovely morning walk, I bet it was beautiful along the pier in the sunshine. Sometimes it’s great to be out and about before the rush and all the attractions open to appreciate the area itself. Little E looks so encapsulated by the sea it’s adorable, I bet she can’t wait to get back to the seaside again! Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids

    Looks like a fun day out, there’s something kids really love about looking through the floor of a pier and seeing the sea below. Great fun! #CountryKids

      I always hated the water under the pier, it scared me. Thankfully our children are like their dad and love water x
