A Day In: Southend On Sea

17:30


So we seem to have had a mini heat wave and the weather has suddenly decided that summer can start, with temperatures of 31 degrees. On one of these lovely, if not suffocatingly, hot days, we decided to take a little trip down to Southend-On-Sea to have a fun day on the rides and get some ice-cream. It was so hot this day we were constantly seeking out shade but it was a really great day to welcome the new summer weather and have a bit of sun.

We spent more of our time at the theme park at Southend called Adventure Island going on all the bigger rides there. They aren#t the greatest and after being at Thorpe Park these rides will seem very small and definitely not as exciting, but it was still lovely at on the bigger yellow ride (as you can tell I am not one who remembers all the names of the rides...) you still got that sense of adrenaline when it begins. We went on a few others but there was one where you just spin in a circle, first on you back then it twists so you are on your side and front, and you are going at such a speed that when you get off you felt so dizzy you and you barely stand and you felt a little sick too! 


After we went on all the rides we wanted to at Adventure Island, we walked down the beach to meant out mums and get some needed ice cream! The beach was filled with people taking advantage f these new levels of heat, baking in the sun trying to get a tan before this British weather turns again (I obviously got no tan what so ever and am possibly paler than before...) The beach here has a feeling of Blackpool or some other tourist aimed beach abroad but it is still nice to sit and watch the sea and it is great for people watching! We didn't stay here long as it was so hot and by that point we were all feeling a little drained by the baking heat





So this was just a little post to show you out little trip to Southend - I think when you live in the Uk you have to take advantage of these rare hot days so I hope you liked this post! Where do you like to go on those summer days?
