Here we see a sailor about to launch his rowing boat. The town is built close to St Osyth's creek, and takes its name from the wife of a 7th-century Essex king. The remains of a superb abbey are to be found close by.

Back in the 1950s, as an extended family, we always went to Jaywick Sands for our summer holiday. A regular walk undertaken was along the beach to Point Clear then across the ferry to Brightlingsea. It seemed like a real adventure at the time!
