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.

Plenty Of Space At Braunston.

Friday, 13th July 2012.
Barby to Braunston.
4.5 Miles, 0 Locks.

Addition to yesterdays blog.

That peice of rusty metal looks happier today, give him a wave as you pass,
he lives between bridges 79 and 78 on the North Oxford Canal.

We set off this morning in the drizzle with the intention of arriving at Braunston about 10 o'clock, hoping that the hireboats would have gone and left a bit of mooring space, needn't have worried though as there was plenty of space on the 14 day moorings by bridge 90 and on the 48hr ones opposite the pub, even at 4.00 pm there was still room behind us for a 70 footer.

Our visitors today arrived earlier than expected which worked out ok, we had a leisurely lunch at the Boathouse which was excellent as usual.

More visitors tomorrow so we'll have to go back to the pub, good job it's 2 for 1.

The strange man in a hat waving to Jayne from a boat passing in the gloom on Saturday evening was me! Unfortunately we have to move on reasonably early in the morning so might not get a chance to say a proper "hello".
