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.

A Complete Washout, Almost.

Sunday, 12th June 2011.
Moored at Stoke Bruerne.

The picture says it all about Sunday at Stoke Bruerne, rain, rain, rain so we didn't do too well with our fund raising to help keep the Historic Boats going, we did have a few pounds put into the collection boxes but I think that was out of sympathy.

The picture shows Richard, Roger, Diana and Nick, about 15 minutes after I snapped them we packed all the stock away and went over to the Boat Inn.

The rain may have kept the public away but it didn't keep the hardy motorcyclists away who gathered at the Museum on Sunday morning for the start of the "Sunbeam Motrcycles Rose of the Shires" run for Pre 1931 Motorcycles, it was open to all makes not just Sunbeams.

A Birmingham built  B.S.A. the white drum on the handlebars is a rotating route guide
 but look at that front brake, a wooden block rubbing on a steel ring.

A Sunbeam gleaming in the rain.

Tonight we will eat in the Boat Inn, hope it's as good as the Navigation was last night.
