Andreas needed to go to LA for ten days to visit his family. While he was gone, Alekka and I rented a car and did some exploring.

Our friend Katie in London mentioned that there was a nice little folk festival coming up on the east coast at Leigh-on-sea this weekend. We went there to check it out.


We thought there might not be parking so we took a bus from Southend and walked down to the waterfront.

Katie was right, it was a fun time. Good music, good food and drink. And Morris dancers!

We stayed at a small hotel in Southend-on-sea. Southend is a holiday destination for a lot of people but I have to admit, I don’t really get the appeal of the English seaside.

Southend also has a “fun park”, as they are called here. It was fun to take pictures. And there was ice cream, which is always fun, of course.
