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.

Well look who turned up in town!

Cant believe it. You come thousands of miles away from the Uk and suddenly, there large as life and in the same hotel, are those two fun loving party goers, Doug and James (nb Chance). There ship Queen Mary 2 docked and, with them not disembarking until Friday, thought they would suss out the hotel. What a lovely surprise and an all to short catchup but how great to meet up. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Dubai and hope you got our FB message.

 We are now off to freezing Britain. Plane leaves at 3pm Emirates time (11.00am UK time) so here are the final photos of our stay.
