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.

Saturday/Sunday,1st/2nd October 2011.
Moored at Stoke Bruerne.


The first day of the Village at War weekend has been busy, mainly due to this mad weather, I felt sorry for the people in WW2 army uniforms marching around they really did look hot.

Early morning at Stoke Bruerne.

Both the pubs here were standing room only and the queue for the Burger Bar seem to go on for ever, there were plenty of visitors to the "Black Market Field" where you could buy Forties clothes, Military Uniforms, old fashion sweets and popcorn.

We also had visitors, Jayne's sister Pam and the family came for a day out and her brother David also turned up.


Another scorcher and even more people around, Jayne helped out in the admission marque handing out programmes in the morning and I spent more time on the boats

We were supposed to see a fly past of a Hawker Hurricane Fighter but due to "Technical Difficulties" that didn't happen so we had to make do with a Westland Lysander.

Best I could do, people kept talking to me as I was trying to get a better picture.

Trip Boat Charlie was very busy both days.

Tomorrow we will move up the 2 locks and moor by the Museum, as the event was so busy most of the visiting boats are double breasted (2 boats moored side by side) we have nb Percy owned by Vintage engine specialist Tony Redshaw moored up against us so we will have to wait until they go before we can move.
