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.

Taking it Easy

Monday and Tuesday 14th and 15th June
1 mile approx 6 locks

Monday morning the sky looked a bit grey, we stayed on our weekend moorings until about 11 o'clock. The sky then started to brighten a bit so we decided to go down 2 locks to where we could wind (turn around) then back up 4 locks to the water point above the top lock to replenish our water tank. We then moved across to just outside the Museum. We spent the rest of the day just 'chilling out'.

Tuesday, weather was a bit brighter, plenty of hire boats passing, 2 coaches came to the Museum Car Park, this kept the trip Boat busy taking visitors to Blisworth Tunnel entrance and back. I had a fiddle with the engine while Jayne carried on knitting. We popped in for a lunchtime drink at The Boat Inn, got chatting to a couple who were considering selling up and buying a boat, we did not give any advice either way!!!! Back into The pub for our tea, we had the 2 for £9.95, very good value.

The Flower Boxes were planted for us by our friend Sonia

Why dont you add your blog to the UK ranking site (As both Jim - Starcross and I do?) . When people know where to find you it will increase your readership no end.
Have a good trip south.
