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.

Booked In For Blacking

Tuesday 28th February 2012.

Last week we drove up to Shobnall to book the boat in for D.I.Y. blacking, we went for the last weekend in March as hopefully it won't be too cold, I can also fit the new Crowther propeller we've had since last year.

Kings Bromley Marina's Muscovy duck has left after a disagreement with the resident male swan,we think the Muscovy was paying to much attention to the female swan and hubby decided he had to go, the Muscovy now resides at Fradley Junction, about 2 miles away, I spotted him last week whilst out cycling.

The large male Swan who rules the Marina, he's known as Nic due to the damage to his beak which looks like it was caused by fishing line when he was young.

No cruising for us just yet, my mother's going into hospital for a replacement knee on the 4th of April so we'll make sure she's mobile before we go to far away, then it's off to the Stoke Bruerne Gala, that's assuming there's enough water for the canals to operate.
