Waltzing Around Walton

A sunny Tuesday dawned, so I decided to visit the remaining three piers in Essex, being close to home. My first destination was Walton-on-the-Naze which I remember well from trips to the seaside while growing up. The amusements always held more appeal than the beach, to be honest. My particular favourites were the Dodgems and Ghost Train.

Having walked the length of the pier (which was first opened in 1871) I needed refreshments. The bowling alley on the pier didn’t offer any cake, so I made a beeline for The Beach Kiosk opposite and plumped for a donut to accompany my cuppa.
