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.

This is why I feel so sorry for the female duck

1st the Aylesbury Drake

You can just make her out under the pair of them.
Then it was the turn of the Pekin Drake

 Then the Mallard drake wanted to get in on the act

Completely submerged

And she is still underwater!
Thank goodness she is okay. So many females are drowned by over amorous Drakes

Female ducks have such a hard time when the breeding season gets underway and that is why we see so many drowned. There seems to be so many drakes and not enough females. We had a female land on our boat as we were moving, she was trying to get away from 6 drakes, so we gave her a lift.
