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 a quickie

I'm back.......up and running again. Love it when a plan comes together. New screen was ordered through ebay with a delivery option of collecting from an Argos of our choice. Had the email arrive this morning to say it was ready for collection at Abingdon. So we left the mooring of 4 days and hoped that Abingdon wouldnt be wall to wall boats. Luckily a space was vacated by a large cruiser as we arrived so although the banks are a bit high, it did us very nicely.

Mooring fees were not collected and school closed for summer so couldn't even walk and pay there. We would have gladly paid for this cause.

I mentioned the wasps nest. Well not only did we have one at the bow but the stern as well.

Not sure if it's a water vole or rat.
