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.

Halted by the Aroma of Food.

Wednesday, 17th, August 2011.
Adderley to Audlem.
2.6 Miles 12 Locks.

Well, we almost managed the 15 locks of the Audlem Flight today, we were going well until  approaching the Shroppie Fly pub with the smell of food wafting along the Canal and, with a mooring right outside Audlem Mill a short distance from the Pub we found ourselves unable to go any further. 

We did well coming down the Locks meeting an "up hill" boat at almost every one including Lynne and Paul on Piston Broke.

nb Piston Broke. (sorry for the poor quality)

On yesterdays blog we mentioned  the Farmers wife selling produce at Adderley top lock but as the Internet signal was poor I didn't manage to find a link to their business but we have today, it's called Adderley Wharf farm Shop.

There's another Enterprise here at Audlem, George's Pork and Poultry is situated by the side of Lock 15, it's an impressive website for a small concern.

Just back from the Pub, they certainly don't hold back on the portions, glad we decided to skip the starter.

Weather forecast keeps changing, at the moment it looks good for the next 5 days, lets hope it's right.
