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.

Outside Another Pub.

Tuesday 18th September 2012
Fosse Locks to Long Itchington
3.5 Miles and 7 locks inc a Staircase.

Late start today as we only planned a short journey, we found the double staircase lock at Bascote in particularly poor condition, the towpath side paddle wasn't working at the middle gate with the now familiar bin liner and yellow aware tape around it, the gates were leaking badly as well, giving the front of the boat a good wash off.

Continuing our gruelling voluntary work as surveyor's of canal side pubs  we've moored very close to the Two Boats at Long Itchington, a few hundred yards from No Directions birth place, ColeCraft Engineering.

Moored outside the Two Boats.
Inside the Two Boats, boater size meals again.
There aren't many advantages to being old, but at the Two Boats on Mon/Tues/Wednesday they offer 10% discount on food if you confess to being over 55, the only thing I found surprising was that they didn't ask us for proof !.

55 doesn't strike me as particularly old!
