Boat for Hire

My hubby’s been itching to get Madame on the water.  He definitely has a love of the sea; he used to do a lot of scuba diving, sailing and windsurfing.  Unfortunately, a lot has changed in the last 20 years in relation to health and safety. So, it’s no longer a matter of popping down to a local sailing club and renting a dingy.  You now have to have formal qualifications, level 2, which requires a couple of weekends and a few hundred pounds.

So, as a cheap and quick alternative we opted to go to the Lee Valley Boat Centre and hire an electric boat.

It was brilliant and the weather was perfect.  I’d highly recommend it but do avoid the pub across the canal afterwards, which was responsible for probably one of the worst roast lunches I’ve ever had.   The sign on the door should have been a dead give-away ‘shirts must be warn at all times’ and no word of a lie, the grannies had tattooes!

I always thought Broxbourne was in Herts and not Essex??? ;-)
