15th May 1948: blows a gale... but gardening

1948 was an interesting year to visit Jaywick.

15 Sat. Would have been rather warm but for an E wind of gale violence but the sun shone gloriously all day. Bought fish locally in afternoon. Also bought eight tomato plants – Stonor’s Exhibition in West Barnes Lane @ 7½ ea. The Thompsons are home to-day after a week at Jaywick near Clacton. Gwennie, Laurie and Donald called. Did a morning’s digging and weeding in the garden.
