Mersea Island

Mersea Island is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK. It is joined to the UK by a causeway known as The Strood.  The island is cut off from the mainland during high tide.  Mersea Island is famous for it's seafood, most notably it's oysters.

We visited my husband's family on Mersea Island last week.  The weather was what you would expect during Autumn, wet, cloudy, cold and miserable.  However, we managed to get a couple of dry days and I managed to get out one evening to take some pics down at West Mersea harbour.  Here they are....
