Sea salt. From ancient times, the estuaries and marshes of Essex have been at the centre of the salt making industry.




Some 'Fascinating Facts' about Mersea Island . . .

ah Juliette some lovely photos of our beautiful island. It was great to finally say hello to you even though I clearly confused you by calling myself by one of my other blogging names!

Teresa!!! It was you!!! Oh my goodness, I'm sooooooo sorry I didn't twig. If you'd said 'it's Teresa' I'd have realised at once: as it was, I was trawling my very bad memory banks for the name you used instead, and feeling rather embarrassed that I didn't remember it. What a fantastic day for the Festival (and another scorcher today) - I had meant to call back at your marquee for a cup of tea but was, I'm afraid, seduced by Mersea beer instead. My daughter loved her bespoke sandwich, which set her up well for her dance performance later. At least I will recognise you next time our paths cross now!
