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.

Shopping Done

Tuesday, 16th August, 2011.
Market Drayton to Adderley.
4.5 Miles, 5 Locks.

We woke to rain this morning so our shopping trip was delayed slightly until it passed over, got to Morrisons at 9.40 and ordered Breakfast in the cafe, en route we past an Asda store where the Piston Broke crew gave up waiting to be served at the one and only check out.( I did check all the trollies to try and find your pound coin Lynne.)

Back on the boat with everything packed away we moved to the water point between bridges 62 and 63 and topped up the water tank, it's the slowest tap I have ever used, my body produces more pressure after 2 pints.

Arriving at Adderley top lock I dropped Jayne off under the bridge and waited as a boat was coming up the lock, I spied they had left one of the bottom gate paddles up and called Jayne on the radio, she pointed out the  error to the Captain who seemed more interested in the produce for sale at the little hut where the farmers wife sells vegetables, meat and cakes, we bought some home made fruit cake. 

We are moored on the Visitor Mooring below Adderley bottom lock, hope to get down the 15 Audlem locks tomorrow.
