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.

Everyone's Feeling The Cold.

13th, December 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Being a Duck, Goose or Moorhen must be hard this time of year, the waters covered in ice and the grounds rock hard so we try and help, they seem to enjoy a bit of wild bird food.

A few handfuls keeps them busy for hours.

We buy our bird food from Princes farm, it's  a couple of miles away from the marina on the A513, they also sell free range eggs, proper ones.

Chickens roaming around, you have be careful as you drive
into the yard, chickens don't have much road sense.
Should last a couple of weeks.
We also have a couple of the more cheeky ducks walk up the jetty and eat from a bowl outside our side doors.
This lady has a damaged leg, it's been like it all year
we don't know whether she will survive the winter.
She manages to eat ok and holds her own with the
other ducks, but this time of year it's survival of the fittest.
