Looking back

The last two nights we have moored in quiet spots away from civilisation, the first on the Stort, and tonight on the Lee. From tomorrow onwards we’ll be in London.

Looking back at our exploration of the Stort I could say a couple of things. The first is that the towns and villages on the river don’t make much concession to the boater. Perhaps the worst is Sawbridgeworth which has a smart well tended waterfront covered in No Mooring signs! The second is that there are a lot more opportunities for informal mooring in the countryside that you might think. Overall, it’s a lovely river for rural seclusion, a very well maintained waterway, but not particularly good for pubbing or restaurant as you go.

I would show you some nice pics if this *&$£!!dongle would speed up! Come back tomorrow and see.
