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.

Stoke Bruerne

Wed, Thurs and Friday  9th,10th and 11th June
Gayton Junction  to Stoke Bruerne
4 miles approx and 2 locks

We went through the Blisworth Tunnel very wet inside due to rain water coming through the ventilation shafts, at least it was dry outside of the tunnel.
We moored around 12 midday, below the second lock in what is known as 'the long pound' (pound is length of water between locks), ready for the weekend. We had a relaxing afternoon, Jayne made a cake!!!!

Thursday we didn't do much other than reversing a couple of boat lengths back as a space had appeared nearer the event. I emptied the cassettes, a lot more boats are arriving for the Gala Weekend .

Friday I helped move Raymond and Nutfield from the Long Pound up 2 locks to their allocated mooring close to the Museum. We joined more volunteers at The Boat Inn for a lunch time drink. Then had another lazy afternoon before gathering for a musical evening on the Museum Green where there was a beer tent and the mobile Fish & Chip Van arrived to give everyone sustenance.
