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.

More of a photo blog then the written word today

 Seeing as we did a grand total of 2 miles again today and 5 locks there is not much to report. Mooring up by  11ish we had a very early lunch and went walk about to find the nature reserve. Unfortunately, as we arrived at the entrance, a large sign outside stated no dogs other then guide dogs. Nothing for it but to leave me to walk round the reserve and Ian to take Jade back. While I was away he did take the galley window out, re paint the surround and varnish the woodwork so at least all was not lost. Later we had our first BBQ of August. Shame it had to be right at the end!  I think it very unlikely that we will have another this year!
