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.

A Day Without Rain.

Tuesday, 12th June, 2012.
Stoke Bruerne to Nether Heyford.
10 Miles, 2 Locks and 1Tunnel.

We moved up through the two locks this morning and got onto the water point outside the Boat Inn just as the Fudge Boat left, filled the tank, got rid of the rubbish and re-cycling.

Blisworth Tunnel was very wet as you would expect after all the rain, we arrived at our planned mooring at Nether Heyford around lunch time and after tying up, turning the stern greaser and putting the hood up I cycled into the village for a few supplies.

The One Stop shop in Nether Heyford is handy but could do with a bit of competition to sharpen the staff up, someone once said the customer is king, but the last two times I've been in  there it's more like the customer's a pain in the backside, unless your a local then they stand chatting for ages, also they don't hand you the till receipt, you have to ask, Grrrr.

Tomorrow it's up Buckby Locks, and maybe down Braunston as well.
