One of the obstacles that we had to avoid was a swimmer in the canal at Islington.
On Saturday it was an early start as we planned to reach Waltham Abbey with Julie and Tom on Wine Down.
The only problem was that we got stuck in Tottenham Lock as the lock gates failed to open.
Sadly a body had been found in the canal on Friday and all cruising was stopped.
On Friday brother Phil joined us for the weekend and helped us cruise to Harlow.
