We continued our journey the next morning, down Kings Langley, Home Park and the Hunton Bridge Locks. We were followed part of the way by a widebeam from Waterways Experiences from Nash Mills Wharf, and were met by another coming up the locks. Waterways Experiences were formerly called Outreach Projects, and it was from them that Grace and I hired the widebeam Fellowship of Watford on which we took a youth group some 20 something years ago. It was that week which triggered our dream to have our own boat and cruise the canals. Two of the men from the ascending boat fondly remembered the Fellowship.

We were very tempted to spend the night there, but that would have spoiled our (very vague) schedule, so we moved on. Through Cassiobury Park, helped at one of the locks by a very enthusiastic 11-year-old boy, and mooring not far below Cassio Bridge Lock. Now we're in new territory.
