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.

Marina Fever

Marina Fever has struck but we will have to fight it for another 3 weeks before we can cast off and get out onto the Canal, meanwhile we have a few little jobs on the boat to keep us busy.

We have some pieces of wooden sculpture appearing around the Marina courtesy of Tony Darlington ( the piece pictured below is about 5 feet high.

All hand carved.

Another one being worked on.

Sunday was the last of the two open days at the Marina, weather was a bit overcast in the morning so not as many people around, even so over £500 was raised for 2 charities, Starlight and Medecins Sans Frontieres  mainly by 2 raffles, all the prizes were donated including a discount off your next mooring fee.
Ian, (the Marina's Mr Fixit) and his wife Sue own 3 Horses, they brought one to the Marina on Sunday Morning, a journey of around 6 miles, as far as they know Monarch is 16 years old, they are not quite sure as he came from a Horse rescue sanctuary.
