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.

Midsummers Day

Monday 21st June 2010
Wigrams Turn Marina to Braunston
5 miles No locks

Had a pleasant evening in Wigrams Turn.
Moored at Wigrams
It did not take long for the ducks to notice some newcomers and chance their luck for a bit of bread.

Hello, give me some bread

We waited for our Tesco delivery, it arrived promptly at 10.15, we loaded it into one of the marina hand carts and wheeled it around to the boat. Wigrams Turn made us very welcome thanks Gillian

We moved off then after I had done some touching up to the side of the boat. We tied up at the same moorings we were at on Saturday, expecting to spend the night there. I then cycled off to Braunston to check out the mooring situation. When I returned we made the decision to head off to Braunston and moor up for the week at our pre-arranged mooring.

We have had brilliant sunshine all day today, let us hope it continues, especially for our daughter Lisa, Linz, Angie, Christy and Clare who are heading off to Glastonbury tomorrow in a minibus complete with tents, food, beer, wine, suncream and not forgetting the obligatory wellies just in case.

I saw your boat at Braunston on Monday but there was no one aboard as far as i could tell. You certainly have a more convenient mooring than the best I could find!
I'll look out for you again at the show.

Yes we got this mooring position by prior arrangement with the BW mooring officer due to Jayne being registered disabled. I will be helping set up the Freinds of Raymond stall and bringing the boats across from the far side of the Marina on Friday so if you see the stall or the boats just ask someone and they will point me out.
