Another lovely Autumn day

7 locks, and 6 miles. Now moored at Cheshunt on the Lea Navigation.

The day started with overcast skies but a warm temperature. The forecast was for 16deg's but I think that was surpassed. We were surprised by other boats being on the move including a BW work boat. This meant that most of the locks were set in our favour making for some good travelling times.

After mooring up we wandered into town to find Tesco's. First off we found Tesco's head office which wasn't much help but after a change of direction we found the Tesco Metro. There was a bit of a panic going on in the supermarket as the checkout machines were out of action but luckily by the time we had finished shopping they were up and running again.

Next to our moorings is a lovely park with a car park and toilet block. Unfortunately the building is all locked up with signs stating that the toilets are closed due to vandalism. This is the third such building that we have found in our travels that  have suffered this fate. Some little ratbags ruining things for everybody else and this gets me hot under the collar. Is society getting too soft on this sort of thing or are parenting skills sadly lacking.

763 locks, 1057.5 miles, 29 Tunnels, 39 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
