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.

The Wrong Roade.

 
Tuesday 25th September 2012
Moored at Stoke Bruerne.
Today we needed supplies, the Boat Inn sells milk and bread, but the bread is frozen, and when frozen bread thaws out it loses its taste, well it does to us, ok for toast but not for anything else.
So a quick look at the OS map for an interesting cycle route to Roade, the nearest Village with a shop and it shows an off road route, just my sort of bike ride.

The route goes up the path by the tunnel where it joins a tarmac road for a couple of hundred yards before a right turn onto a mile long Bridleway into Roade.
 
The Bridleway was muddy to say the least, but I returned triumphant with two fresh loaves, although I may use a different road to Roade next time.

Quick dunk in the canal and it will be as good as new :-)

Is there a mudguard just out of sight - or did you get a nice brown streak up your back?

Halfie. No the mud was to thick and sticky to fling up my back.
