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.

And Their Off.

Thursday 24th May 2012.
Kings Bromley to Fazeley.
13 + a bit Miles, 3 locks, 1 swing bridge.

Left the Marina at 9.45 today, nice and cool before the sun burnt off the cloud, leaving the first lock of the day, Woodend, we met Pete and Dave on nb Hyskeir, they're heading for the River Festival at Stratford but going the long way round, Staffs and Worcs canal, river Severn and river Avon.

The rest of today's journey was uneventful and we're now moored on the visitor moorings at Fazeley, it's been as scorcher, but you all know that, makes me glad I'm not at work anymore.

Between Whittington and Hopwas a farmer was dismantling a field of poly tunnels, the Tractor takes the weight of the arch section while a couple of lads disconnect it from the footings, hard work especially in this heat, they were having to move quickly as the Tractor driver (obviously the boss) wasn't hanging about.
