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.

It was a good day...on second thoughts... it was a spectacular day.

 And here was I thinking we had missed the Southern migration. In fact those Humpback whales turned up in Jervis Bay Marine park in their numbers. At least 8 were seen by us but a lot more sightings by other boats. We followed a mum and calf and was rewarded by a  tail fluke from mum and in the distance another was showing off by breaching.

All set to see the whales


















In the distance a controlled burn was happening. But the breeze picked up and then, from the captain an announcement, burn had got out of control and was now a full blown bush fire.

The black dot in the centre was a helicopter

 Back at the camp site and we took a walk to the freshwater lake.

My first paddle
Then back at the caravan park I decided to try the new snorkel we had bought in the UK. Worked a treat.

Just get in Ian...it's not that cold.



Typical tourist.
We leave for Edan tomorrow. More adventures to come.
