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.

Ready For Take Off.

Tuesday, 20th September, 2011.

The picture below was taken back in April, the resident Marina Swans had produced 7 eggs.

7 to start with.

In May there were 5  (1 behind the adult on the right.)

5 hatched but only 3 made it through the summer, they have now grown to be almost the same size as there parents.

The 3 that made it.

This week we have watched them being shown how to take off by the parents, when they have mastered this the adults will chase them off the Marina, they will then have to fend for themselves.
