I often visit West Mersea (just south of Colchester) to enjoy the beautiful beach with my family. On this occasion we ventured over to East Mersea, near Cudmore Grove. It was a quiet late-afternoon in October last year and the light was magical! The sky was heavy; it looked as though the heavens could open at any moment, but the sun was persistent and bathed the beach in an unsual glow.
