Regular readers of my blog will know I love to visit Maldon in Essex. Hubby and I took the bus from Chelmsford to Maldon yesterday and we had a lovely walk around the town and Hythe Quay. We stopped at the fresh fish stall for mussels and anchovies and looked at all the boats moored on the river Blackwater. We then went for a drink at The Jolly Sailor and had dinner at the fab Intimo Restaurant.
Maldon Promenade Park has changed since I was a child. Mum and Dad would take my sister and I to the Marine Lake where there was a beach area and you could swim in the lake. Marine Lake is gone now. As part of the regeneration of that area, it is now a pond and wildlife area. I get quite nostalgic when I visit Maldon as it brings back happy childhood memories. Simple things like building sandcastles, eating ice cream and having a family picnic. Happy days! :)
