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.

Still at Braunston

24th/25th June 2010
Still moored at Braunston

Thursday. It has clouded over a bit today, went to the Gongoozlers Cafe for breakfast, very nice. Did a bit of housework (or is it boatwork) and charged the batteries. We did not do an awful lot today, having a totally idle day!!
The Marina is a hive of activity with all the marquees going up and the final touches being added.

Braunston Marina

At 4 o'clock this afternoon we had to move forward a bit because the Diesel/Coal boat Towcester needed to squeeze in behind us as they are having a Diesel delivery on Friday and it was the only place the road tanker can get to them, having them so close is handy because we need to fill our tanks with Diesel.


Friday.  We had our diesel filled up from Towcester. I started work for the weekend by helping to move Raymond from its mooring in Braunston Marina to the dock ready for the festival, where Raymond and Nutfield lead the parade for the Historic working boats. The Friends of Raymond will be setting up its fund raising stall, hoping for a good weekend.
The sun is very hot, and things are now getting busy, hopefully it will be a good time for all involved.  
The evening saw us all go the The Boathouse (The Mill House) for our evening meal, very nice. Everyone then went to the Beer Tent to finish the evening listening to the band and having a drink.
