It was very overcast when I left Newenden this morning. 

I got some rain along the way. The closer I got to London the heavier it got. 

My route had me catching the Woolich ferry. By the time I got to the ferry it was absolutely pouring, I couldn't see the GPS and had to lift my visor so I could see at all, I arrived at the ferry but it was very confusing there was a sign that said ferry open, another that said ferry closed, one that said there was 1 hour delay and another said 2 hour delay, there were witches hats across the road as well.

Awesome no idea where to go now. So I choose the next waypoint on my GPS but it tells me to catch the ferry. So I think just ride and hopefully the GPS will reroute, it did do this but for ages kept trying to turn me back to the ferry, eventually it rerouted at it took me into a tunnel, the approach to the tunnel was awesome, heaps of clutch work, at least it had stopped raining.

Anyhow I survived and got to Sawbridgeworth unscathed, I was staying with Ann who grew up across the road from Mum in London.

After dinner we went for a walk around town and then stopped in at the George IV for a drink. I had my first PIMM'S  which apparently is the drink to have in summer.
