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.

Moored at Kings Bromley Marina.

The usual  hold up at Fradley Locks are eased for a week or so as I.W.A Volunteers work boats through, unfortunately the relief is only a temporary measure to help boats get to the I.W.A. Festival at Burton, we were down at Fradley in the car on Sunday morning and the Volunteers looked well organised with Windlass's ( or are they lock keys ) and life jackets, but guess who forgot to take a picture.

The reason we called in at Fradley was to pick up Cheese from the Cheeseboat which has been moored there over the the weekend, my Mother and her Sister think it's wonderful stuff so we bought them a selection.

Should keep them busy for a while.

Six different flavours which include, Amber Mist with Whisky, Brandy Braf with Apricots and Brandy, Pickle Power with Pickled Onions and Cennin Cenarth with White Wine.

After buying the Cheese we drove up to Leeds for Sunday Lunch with our Daughter and her Partner, it was well worth the journey, before Lunch Jayne was presented with a homemade birthday cake in the shape of our boat No Direction.

The water looks a bit rough.

Today I have been busy with the paint brush again and Jayne has been compiling a list for a big shop on Tuesday ready for our trip to Burton.

The pretty bits are not my work only the green and black.

After reading about "Favicon's" on Jim's Starcross blog, we now have one, I know, we're all like sheep, baaah.
