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.

A Festival, A Marina and Coal.

Thursday, 22nd November 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Not much blogging lately as we haven't been up to much apart from general boat maintenance, best to get all the scrapes touched up and servicing done before the winter weather arrives.

One thing we have done is sent off our entry for the 2013 IWA National Festival, it's at Cassiobury Park on the Grand Union near Watford, we stopped there for a couple of days in 2010.

Things appear to be moving again at the new Kings Orchard Marina near Lichfield with CaRT issuing an advice notice warning of activity on the towpath next week while it's re-aligned with the newly built bridge over the Marina entrance.

We've always found prices at Midland Chandlers a bit top heavy, however they're now selling coal at a very competitive price, Jayne spotted it on their site a couple of weeks ago and we called into the Penkridge branch on our way back from visiting my mother. 25kgs of StoveGlow for £10 less 5% for IWA members so we had two bags for £19.
We called in again on Tuesday intending to pick up four bags this time, but they offered us 10% off if we bought six bags, so with a bit of re-arranging in the back of the car we left with six bags at £9.00 each, bargain.
