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.

Onto the Shroppie.

Tuesday 4th September 2012.
Gailey to Wheaton Aston.
15.5 Miles and 2 Locks.

Good mooring last night, the towpath has been
 built up using dredgings, the grass is growing well.

We set off early today, weather was a bit disappointing considering the forecast, at one time I could feel a bit of rain in the air but it didn't last.

Impressive row of Poplar trees as we approach the Junction.

We came up behind a hireboat which was moored at Autherley Junction just before the sharp right turn onto the Shroppie, I thought they were waiting for the lock but they asked the way to Morrisons so obviously not, a local gave them directions as we went round into the lock, we're a tight fit in that stop lock, having to lift the rear fender to get the bottom gate open.

About to leave Autherley stop lock and pass the hire fleet.
We are now moored on the visitor moorings at Wheaton Aston, Turners Garage has been busy all afternoon with boats queuing for Diesel (75.9), we'll fill up next Monday when we'll be here again.
