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.

Watching The Fuel.

Thursday, 8th September 2011.
Market Drayton to Gnosall.
13.5 Miles and 5 Locks.

I have been keeping an eye on the fuel level as we head back, we want to get to Turners Garage in Wheaton Aston to fill up as they are much much cheaper than any of the boatyard's and Marina's along the Llangollen canal, we filled up at Turners on the way up to Llangollen, we also filled two jerry cans, one of which we have used, but as we only have a two hour cruise tomorrow we will be OK.

We arrived at Tyrley bottom lock this morning and followed another boat up, we had a helper, a man walking his dog stayed with us all the way up the flight closing one of the bottom gates at every lock, I think he liked chatting to boaters and having a play with the locks, never mind his help was appreciated.

After clearing the top lock we pulled over to use the services then moved 100 yards onto the Visitor moorings for breakfast.

Today we passed through Woodseaves Cutting, glad I didn't have to dig it out.

Tonight we are at Gnosall, a Village with two Canal side Pubs, The Boat Inn and The Navigation, we chose the Navigation and weren't disappointed, we had an excellent meal, in fact Jayne claimed her Steak and Chips was the best pub meal for a long time.
