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.

Brrrrrrr..... blooming cold aint it.

Nearly into February and today saw the first snow fall of the winter. Didn't amount to much, more wet stuff really but it has meant a considerable drop in temperature, so much so that we have had to crank up the stove to keep the boat up to a comfortable temperature.

Took Jade with us today when we went to Sandiacre. She's very much on the mend, only the occasional wobble every now and then but we feel like anxious parents wanting to keep an eye on their child so wont let her out of our sight. It would be awful if she had a funny turn while we were away. Ian dropped me off at the hairdresser while he continue to the bungalow to fetch more wood. It's going down rather rapidly now that we're continually feeding the fire. The work on the lock is progressing nicely although it looks totally different from the open day last Sunday. More like a builders site but C&RT appear to be on target to finish on time for when the canal reopens on the 17th.
