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.

Thursday/Friday 26/27th July 2012.
The Globe Inn to Linslade.
3 Miles 1 Lock.

Our plan to stay moored at The Globe Inn  for a second night collapsed about 3 pm on Thursday when the urge to move on got the better of us, off we went and stocked up at Tesco's Leighton Buzzard mooring on the two hour shoppers moorings.

Then on to Linslade where we'll be for the weekend, firstly though we went up to Grove Lock where there's room to turn, not really a winding hole, more of a short narrow arm leading off the main canal, I nosed the boat in, the stern swung around and started to reverse out, halfway through the manouver a crew coming down the lock opened all the paddles, the rush of water made a three point turn a ten point one.

We found our allocated mooring and secured the boat, that's it until Sunday morning.
