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.

At The End Of The Line

Monday, 29th August 2011.
Chirk to Llangollen.
7 Miles,1 Lift Bridge, 1 Tunnel, 1 Aquaduct.

We arrived at Chirk on Saturday afternoon in the rain, the forecast wasn't good for Sunday, so stayed there until this morning, today the weather looked a bit grim but has turned out ok.

We are now in Llangollen mooring basin, £12 for 48 hours including Mains electric, we've been surprised how few boats were about on the Trevor to Llangollen section but have been told that Tuesday to Thursday are the busy days.

Obviously the main feature today was the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, we had a slight delay while the trip boat came across, then we set off behind another Narrowboat.

Over theEdge.

We were followed by an intrepid family in a Canoe who went all the way to Llangollen.

I bet Thomas Telford got some funny looks when he discribed what he was going the build.

As we're on Mains power the washing machine will be on overtime for the next couple of days, everything will get washed.

We have visitors booked for next Saturday who want to go across the Aquaduct on the boat so have arranged to pick them up in Trevor.
