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.

And then it was gone.

Friday 5th Aug

Such a lazy day. No plans, just a day of chilling out. Did a bit of shopping (Ian went to fetch our car yesterday), chairs out in the afternoon and a spot of sunbathing, enjoying the long awaited summer and then a walk round the park followed by a fishing session. Life cant get better then this. We even had a BBQ, the first in quite a while. But what was very noticeable as we walked to the car, no more house! Yep that one I mentioned a couple of days ago is no more. Cant believe how quick it came down, just a pile of rubble is all that is left and wouldn't surprise me if the whole site is cleared within days. They certainly don't hang around!

House gone!

Whirly gig still up in the garden (L)

The house as was
All ready for cooking

Better be quick judging by those clouds!
 There are certain merits on having wheels at ones disposal, it means we can go out over the weekend and visit places. As NT members Kedlestone Hall and Sudbury Hall Museum of Childhood are not to far away. So the plan is to do Kedlestone tomorrow and Sudbury Sunday. Weather looks good so should be a good outing.

I haven't visited in some time and now I'm having fun going back through your posts. I am amazed at all the wildlife photos . . . I must say, that I am not normally a jealous person, but your life aboard Free Spirit stirs up a bit of the green monster. Truth is I'm very happy for you both and you look like such a sweet couple. Your boat looks like the perfect way to travel across the country . . . so tranquil and relaxing. Happy Summer!
