On our trip back from Bishops Stortford we are soaked by a very sharp shower at least the sun was shining some where.
We were also getting ready for a visit from Jenny,Mel and Harvey the dog.

As we leave Bishops Stortford we see this interesting bridge crossing the river.

I am a bit behind as I have had trouble up loading photographs.
The Fish and EEl pub at Dobb's Weir looks like a good place to moor and have a drink.

Office space available on the River Lee

The new Olympic site taken shape for the 2012 games.

How green is our river?
As we travelled up the river Lee it was covered in weed, although B.W. had boats out trying to clear it they seemed to be losing the battle.

Paddington Basin from The Maisibert at night

The busy North Circular Road from the Aquaduct that crosses the river Brent and the A406.

Artwork as we approached a windy Paddington Basin.

The artwork is made of materials found in the cut and designed by local students inconjunction with a local artist.

Is it a house or is it a boat or this is the proper interpretation of a house boat.

Another sad sight we pass on the cut on our way to Rickmansworth.

Phew its hot!

We have left Berkhamsted and now at Hemel Hempstead.
We have shared the trip and locks with Rita and Scooby Talbot from Festina Lente.
We would to thank them for their support with their knowledge of the area and for Wednesday nights cheese and wine which was served on the towpath.
