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.

A time to remember

Well I must say yesterday was as good a Christmas as we had hoped for. Pat and her family made us so welcome, the dinner was delicious and my cake went down a treat. Although the day was full of laughter and fun it was also touched with sadness by the absence of Pats husband Keith. our best friend, who died in May this year. Christmas is always a difficult time of year without loved ones but having the support of family and friends is always a real blessing. Yes there were tears but for the most part we talked about the times gone past and the love and friendship we all had for each other. Our holidays and get togethers was joyous and boy did we have a load of those.  Keith will never be forgotten and his life will be celebrated on every opportunity. He will always be in our hearts.
