Image result for Queen's birthday flags\

I love reading the far-flung home-places of the people who drop in here to read, by Google, by machine, or by accident, but I seldom just come right out and say Hello.   I’ve lately been intrigued by the recurring glimpse of a Union Jack and the words “Southend, Southend-on-Sea,” often on my sidebar, and hope that it’s someone who is coming on purpose, so to speak, from that faraway land I love so much.   The very name is charming, bespeaking a cozy seaside stroll, or vast stretches of rocky shore, or sandy hills to the water’s edge. 

I’d love to have you comment, if you’re ever so inclined, but in the mean-time---Welcome, and Thank You.  It’s a nice compliment to see you, day after day.

Love this photo with the flags framing the side! Hello to you too!

My goodness, racheld. You've awakened fond memories of a special trip to Southend as a child, along with my sister. We were taken there by very nice teacher whom we befriended, and her fiancé. Treated to little colorful tin buckets and spades, which we employed down at the beach, we had a grand day out. I shall never forget it.

I hope your mystery visitor does indeed comment here on your delightful blog soon.

I agree with you that it is a lovely area. My Fedjit also shows that I have been visited multiple times a day for many days by someone from this local. Either I have a very interested follower... or what???

I got curious about this and did a search on the internet using "blogger from Southend-On-Sea" and found your post. Hopefully they will comment and let us know who our "secret admirer" is.

BTW, I haven't added to my blog for over four years! I am thinking of starting up again.
