Yet another busy day today and the lovely weather continues.

Stopped off at Berkhamsted for a wander around the town before heading on further south.

Our plan is to reach London to catch up with daughter Tracy on the 7th before she flies off on her year travelling around the world. Looks like we will make London in time.

We passed some workmen cutting down an Ash tree and managed to grab the last piece that was left. It is now on the roof and will provide some nice logs for the fire.
