I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

The pier in Southend-on-Sea, a seaside town in Essex where I'm staying for a few days to see family.

That is advertised as the longest recreational pier in the world and I'm willing to take them at their word. My cousin Bridget and I walked out to the end, and though it was a lovely day, the wind became more enthusiastic the farther we went, and it is most definitely a very, very long pier.

There's a cafe at the end and we had a restorative cup of tea, but it didn't inspire us to do the return journey -- we took the train.
