Rickmansworth to Hemel Hempstead

Mum came and joined me on Constance for a week. We parked at Tesco in Rickmansworth whilst I went and fetched the boat from her mooring way above Batchworth Lock. Mum waited patiently in the car. We then loaded all of our stuff for the week and did some shopping at Tesco before moving across the canal to the Rickmansworth Visitor Moorings ready to move on the following day.
Every half mile of so you find the resident heron standing guard and hoping to see a meal swim by.
We were being watched by this fine specimen!
 Cassiobury Park is a lovely place for the kids to visit. There are extensive play areas and a massive paddling pool among acres of fine woodlands.
