Canoeing - a Memory of Shoeburyness.

I remember canoeing on this pond in my younger days,I used to get the bus along the front.
We moved from Shoeburyness in 1958 to go up north to South Shields and it was about 5 top coats difference in temperature!! brr, brr! I can still imagine kneeling in the canoe and paddling for ages.
We used to live in Vincent Crescent number 11,and Mam,Dad,brothers Peter and Barry (Barry now departed) have been away a long time now but we have been back a few times and Peter did the Southend Marathon once and money raised was given to Rochford Hospital childrens dept. in memory of Peter being born underweight and possibly little hope of survival.
