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.

A Lie-In

Sunday 6th June
Hartshill to Rugby  17 miles 1 lock 

Jayne fancied a lie-in, so I left her in bed, had quick check of the engine, a couple of mugs of tea, untied the mooring ropes and set off.  After a couple of hours she was up, showered and ready for a breakfast stop, we tied up a mile or so before  Hawkesbury Junction.  

Breakfast Stop on the Coventry Canal

After negiotating the tight turn onto the Oxford Canal we carried on towards Rugby intending to moor for the night at Hillmorton. But around 3 o'clock it started raining, then turned into a thunderstorm, soaking me, not Jayne she was inside!!!
We moored for the night 1/2 mile before the Newbold Tunnel, no digital signal again, so we watched a recording of Pirates of The Carribbean.
