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.

Kings Bromley Marina.

The Moorhen pictured below has decided the back of a Narrowboat would be a good place for a nest.

There's 7 or 8 eggs in the nest.

But what the Moorhen forgot was that the boat needs to go for a pumpout every 3 or 4 weeks and last Sunday was pumpout day, so, the rear mooring rope was gently undone and the boat steered over to the service quay where the pumpout took place, the boat then went back to the mooring and tied up, although the Moorhen made a lot of clucking noise it never abandoned the nest and is still there now.

 Well hidden nest.
 The boats for sale on Great Hayward Boat Sales.

Today we had a car trip over to Shrewsbury for a Mother visit and called into Turners at Wheaton Aston, Red diesel price was 70p ltr base price.
