Memories of Canvey and Thorney Bay beach camp
My family were lucky enough to holiday on Canvey for a month every year, loved everything about it. From walking down to the store in the mornings to buy supplies, filling the water carriers, roly poly down the grass banks, lighting up time, going to the toilet block in the middle of the night, what an adventure!
My elder brother Steve used to spend hours crabbing, whilst my younger brother Jimmy used to stand up at the wall for most of the day with his binoculars watching the Tankers, waiting for a first sighting of “Methane Princess or Methane Progress” which made his day! I just loved it all…
We still go to visit from London, the whole family, such precious memories….
