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.

An Evocative Experience.

Saturday 29th September 2012.
Moored at Stoke Bruerne.
for the Village at War weekend.

At 1.15 this afternoon the sound of two Spitfires approaching stopped the crowds along the towpath in their tracks, the planes came over us quite low, then climbed away, arcing, one to the left, one to the right.

The one which had gone right then returned and gave us a superb display, including a loop, the whole thing probably only lasted five minutes and after they had disappeared from sight and the noise of their engines faded you could have heard a pin drop, everyone around being silenced by the sight and sound of two of the worlds most iconic aircraft.
