We were up early today as we were being picked up later to have a meal with Lorraine and Mike in Hunsdon. I pulled the boat forward onto the water point and found it had good pressure. After a few minutes the tank was full and we set off from Bishop's Stortford back down the Stort.
At Sheering Mill Lock (I think it was) we met a man who delighted in telling us that he now had the funds to buy a boat.
