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.

Monsoon Season.

Monday, 11th June, 2012.
Still at Stoke Bruerne.

It's rained all night and is still raining so no boating for us today, at 7.30 this morning I walked up to watch Nutfield and Raymond leave on their trip back to Braunston, President and Kildare had already gone, can't say I envied them.

Boats are still coming  past today returning from the Queen's Jubilee Pageant, the Mountbatten Crusader came past, it's a wide beam boat owned by Northamptonshire St Johns Ambulance and used to take elderly and disabled people on short canal trips.

Next past were two boats from The Lyneal Trust, another charity organisation which took part in the Pageant, probably hoping for a mention on the BBC coverage which never came. 

The only boating today was watching a DVD which I bought yesterday,
it shows the correct way to handle a pair of working boats,
the crew of President should watch it after the mess they got into yesterday. 
Tuesday's weather looks much better so we can get going in the morning, probably only go as far as Nether Heyford as we need a few supplies from One Stop.
