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.

Christmas Lights

Christmas must be close as most of the Liveaboard boats in the Marina for the winter have got their Christmas lights up, so we put ours up on Sunday, of course before starting I carried out a full Health and Safety risk assessment !!

Lights up.

The Marina, like all the Canals is very frozen, the ducks and geese manage to keep an area ice free so that they can swim and drink, they are looked after in the Marina, most people on the boats throw them something to eat.

Ducks, Geese and Swans, all hungry.

Like everyone we have been enjoying the sights that this very cold weather brings, especially the frost on the trees, hedges and a few other places.
Frost on our Aerial and Christmas lights.

On Tuesday, Midlands Today, our local Television news programme on BBC 1 had an interview with boaters Micheal Lee and his wife Val who are moored in Barton Marina, with all the water taps frozen they are having to carry water from the office block, no moaning or complaining, just get on with it, proper boating attitude.
