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.

Are we a Chinese laundry now??? and meeting with good friends.

We woke to the first real frost of the year and a decidedly cold chill in the boat. Even though the fire had been burning all night the windows were running with condensation. Probably due to the three wash loads of clothing hanging to dry on every conceivable rail and hook available. I really could have done with a whirligig but Ian is adamant he's not having one on the boat! Instead the inside looks like a Chinese laundry which in my opinion is an eyesore. If he so much as complains about the state of the place............well, I'll not answer for the out come if he does!!!!

Went to the Great Northern for lunch and met up with Roger and Pat, Nb The Cats Whiskers and Fred and Lisa, Nb Chyandour We all became friends after meeting at the Kingfisher dry dock at Trent Lock several years ago. Pat and Roger have a mooring at Mercia Marina and Fred and Lisa have  moored on the Erewash waiting to come up through Barkers lock once the stoppage is off. It was a laugh a minute and the chatter went on for hours and guess what??? Not a single mention of toilets, a first for us!! Good company, good meals and a very enjoyable afternoon spent with very good friends. What more could one ask for. More of the same please that's what!
