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.

Best Not To Drill That Mate.

Thursday/Friday 27/28th September 2012
Moored at Stoke Bruerne.
for the "Village at War" weekend.

Thursday morning the Marquee was still standing so we attached the sides and hammered the pegs in a bit further.

Still standing and the sides are on.
On Friday someone built a low stage, laid the small dance floor and placed straw bales around the edge, I didn't see the floor or the bales going down as I was assisting building an Air Raid shelter (first time for everything) under the spare arch of the bridge, we needed to hang camouflage nets from the bridge and had the idea of using screws until it was pointed out that the bridge is a listed structure, big screws and hammer drills were a bad idea, so another solution was found.
Tonight we were in the Navigation Inn which was packed, fortunately Jayne had booked a table.  One of the reasons it was so busy, beside the excellent food was a live show by Lola Lamour a singer who specialises in 1920 to 1950 songs, not my cup of tea (far to quiet) but a lot of people were enjoying the show, dancing with some wearing period clothes.
We've been promised two Spitfires from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight giving a flypast and display tomorrow afternoon, hope the weather is clear.
