We went went for lunch at the Estuary Cafe at the Arches on the seafront where we were joined by cousin Ian. After lunch we took a slow walk along the seafront with Alva and Len's two beautiful dogs and returned to Westcliff via the lovely cliff gardens.
Alva has kindly loaned me some photographs of her uncle Alec and her grandfather Alexander Brown in their snooker playing days. It is fascinating to see a picture of Alexander in old age looking very different from the picture in my article which shows him as a young man. I will scan these pictures and publish them on this blog in the next couple of days.
