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.

Bits and Bobs.

Kings Bromley Marina.

The new Kings Orchard Marina at Streethay has announced that it will open on the 3rd of June next year, the first phase will have moorings for forty plus boats, although it appears that they're still having problems connecting to mains electricity as they mention generators being used to power things until a mains connection is completed, due to this they are offering a further reduction in mooring fee's. The second phase of the marina will be constructed at a later date.

Yesterday we went out for a very leisurely lunch with our friends Michael and Val, they are liveaboards who winter at Barton Marina, we picked them up in the car and drove to The Albion at Shobnall, it's a Marstons two for one pub and is not far from Shobnall Marina, Michael and Val are about to start their eighteenth year living afloat and are a mine of boating information.

Christmas lights have been going up on boats at Kings Bromley, some since the begining of December which is a bit to soon for us, we put ours up last weekend.

The red rope lights are about five years old now,
the blue twinklers were bought earlier this year.
We always buy Xmas decorations in January, 50% off !
