Monday 29th June 2009

We spent a couple of hours catching up on the boat chores which meant we didn't set off until 12 midday. What a mistake as by that time it was already very hot. We had already planned to stop at Roydon as we had gone straight through on the way up river, so we slowly made our way there.

This proved to be very worthwhile as it is such a pretty village, although absolutely deserted today.
We decided to carry on and got back onto the River Lee at about 1500hrs. There were very few boats moving today and we only were as we are under pressure to get to Limehouse.
We got through Broxbourne at 1700hrs and decided to call it a day. We found a lovely mooring and have spent the evening watching the scullers.

These are just some views of Roydon. We are going to have a different tactic tomorrow and set off very early before it gets too warm and have a break in the afternoon as the forecast is another hot day.
