About Us

My photo
In 1977 we hired our first narrowboat from Anglo Welsh at Market Harborough.From that moment our destiny was set. In 2006 we finally purchased our own brand new 57' narrowboat which we named 'Free Spirit'. Our aim is to travel the length and breadth of all the navigable rivers and canals of the UK. This will be our story as it unfolds.

Just made it

. We had all had breakfast and had put our bags on the coach in readiness for catching our ferry back to Holyhead when Shelia informed us that Carole and Mick couldn't get back into there room to fetch the last of there luggage. Apparently the lock wasn't reading the key card so the manager was called and after a lot of head scratching decided that they would have to send for the assistant manager who had the master card that would bypass the locking mechanism. As time was tight the decision was made for thew rest of the coach party to proceed to the ferry port without Carole and Mick and hope that the assistant manager would get them into the room and then to the ferry in time. When the coach reached Dublin Port we were informed that without the two missing passengers we wouldn't be allowed to board the ship. These picture are of Carole and Mick arriving with minutes to spare. They did manage to get into the room but only after destroying the room door!!!
