No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Has Summer Arrived ??

22/23rd June 2010
Still Moored at Braunston

Tuesday was a quiet day for us mainly spent in the sun watching the boats go by, I got my bike out and had a pedal up and down the tow path for a mile or so to see who was here. We lost the Internet signal at about 4 o'clock, it had been working perfectly in the morning and at Lunchtime, but now there was "No Network Coverage" Jayne rang the help desk somewhere on the other side of the world but just got the usual waffle.
Had a visit from Brian, another member of the Friends of Raymond and he ran through the schedule for setting everything up on Friday ready for the show and which pubs we were visiting. 

Wednesday morning, we have our Internet back, Hooray !!!
It was a bit busier with passing boats today, we had a walk up to the Marina and saw that the Marquees were up ready for the weekend and a lot of painting going on.

Marquees are up ready for the Rally

I had a bike ride along the tow path towards the tunnel to see the Horse boating demonstration which was heading for the weekend rally, the boat had been "Legged" through the tunnel as it would have been done when all canal boats were horse drawn.

Although the main event is on Saturday and Sunday there is one event on Thursday evening in the Beer tent.

And England won a Football match !!!

After England had scored Jayne texted our daughter Lisa to give her the update, she replied that she along with 100,000 others were in a field at Glastonbury watching it on huge screens.
