Top 10 Instagrams of Southend (April 2014) Ria May 1, 2014 Adventure Island, Food & Drink, Kursaal, Landmarks & Attractions, Local Business, Local News, Seaside, Southend, Southend Pier 1 Comment Love Southend’s favourite pick of Instagrams this month in no particular order: 1 #beach #goodfriday #beachhut #spring #southend #southendonsea #essex #england #igessex #thames #thamesestuary Beautiful photography effects. This photo just looks incredibly soft yet with such amazing detail and texture.And I do love pictures of Southend’s classic beach huts! 2 Under the dome of the Kursaal bowling alley in Southend on Sea. As straight and square as I could get it The Kursaal’s dome looks so perfectly centred. We can admire its detail without having to crane our necks too! Beautifully captured and great lighting. I love it. 3 Snappy enjoying the sun after his breakfast @richardpbacon wrap #Keep #your #top #on please Richard. #lovesouthend #lovethefun Hilariously relevant newspaper Snappy the Southend crocodile has there, considering this month’s new “keep your top on” rule for male visitors to Adventure Island. 4 Look at southend on sea, looks so nice on a sunny day!! (Deceiving) nice pic cuz @jodijacksonxxx #repost #sos #southend #essex #summer #sunny #beach #sea #resort #southeast #arcades #seafront #home #downtheroad #love #instapic Great compilation pic of Southend seafront’s prettiest attributes: the pier; the fountains; the palm trees; and the sea. And I love the dramatic colours and silhouettes! 5 Southend shake down #mods #acecafe #southend Gotta have a photo from the Southend Shakedown on Easter Monday! I thought this photo captures the essence of it, but what you don’t see in this photo is the thousands of other scooters and motorbikes that parked along the seafront! Very loud and exciting day indeed. 6 Stunning! Well done Henry Well done, indeed! One of the hottest places in Southend to eat a burger is going to be expanding to Leigh-on-Sea. The owner of ex-Sun Rooms will be turning the old Louis XIV bar on Leigh Broadway into a new Henry Burgers! And did you know the owner of the old Sun Rooms and Henry Burgers is named Henry Burgess?! That’s amazing! lol 7 #springtime #clifftown #sunshine #southend #trees #blossom #essex #england #sunset This is just amazing. With the fallen blossoms scattering the grass and those beautiful rays of sunshine! Who doesn’t love a good walk along Clifftown Parade, with the seafront and Cliff Gardens in sight below you. 8 #aquarium #Buddha #southend Can’t lie… this photo gives me the creeps. I didn’t realise that Buddha could look so creepy in this lighting! Wouldn’t want to wake up to see that sitting at the end of my bed! Lovely aquarium at Sealife Adventure though. The fish kind of look like Dory from Finding Nemo! 9 New A board If you’ve ever walked down Southend high street, you must have seen the curious chalk board signs outside of the X-Isle skate shop. Even if you’ve never been in there yourself. This one is probably one of my favourites! Pirates and Southend just go together so well. Such a shame that all the pirate imagery at Adventure Island and along the seafront are starting to fade… 10 #deckchair #sea #coast #southend #southendonsea #essex #beach #uk #england Striped deckchairs out at Southend seaside. When’s Summer again? _________________________ And our favourite photo of the month from Love Southend’s Instagram!
