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.

On the Move Again

Wednesday 6th July 2011.
Kings Bromley to Fazeley.
13 Miles  3 Locks.

Our 2 weeks in the Marina has past quickly, and today we set off again, only a short trip this time to Alvecote Marina for their Summer fair and Boat Gathering this weekend where we are flying the RBOA flag. 

 It was raining hard when I got up but around 8.30 the sun was trying to break through and apart from a short shower we had a dry journey.  The Canal wasn't that busy considering it's July and we had an uneventful trip apart from meeting a hireboat that failed to make a bend and went straight on into the trees.

We had intended to get to Alvecote in one day but ended up mooring at Fazeley, it's like that when you live on a boat, the urgency just disappears, I walked over to the Tesco Express to get Salad for our meal tonight, I always find Fazeley a busy place, chip shop, 3 or 4 restaurants, Tesco's, a pub, garage, chemist and hundreds of cars.

Tomorrow we get to Alvecote around lunch time, we will be moored next to the Cheese Boat right outside the pub according to a phone call tonight from the organisers, which will be handy.
