North London Branch Have a Jem of a Day

Sunday 12th December turned out quite warm and dry, although the roads were soaking. A Ride could not be resisted. Eight of us met up and Richard took us on the A414 towards Maldon and up to Mersea Island where we had lunch at the very nice Blackwater Pearl. It's a little Jem of a place! After a nice lunch and chat we meandered back West towards Braintree where we started to split up, some of us using the good Dunmow to Ongar Road to get home. A fine day with great roads and company. Thanks to Richard, Keith for taking the picture and Bill for leading us home.
