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.

Countdown to NYE

What a miserable day to travel to Great Yarmouth. Persistent rain nearly all the way only letting up as we reached the Hotel.  I have yet to get a proper look at the Hotels exterior but the room we were given has actually got a sea view...well we can see the promenade only if you stick your head out of the window, get a crick in the neck as you look to the right and perch the camera on the outside window cill.To our front is a pedestrian street of which we are a tad worried about the noise factor on New Years Eve night.A chip shop is immediately opposite! Mind you we plan to celebrate in typical Jameison style. Get them bevvies down one's throat without a care and suffer the consequences in the morn. (Panadol packed in readiness!).

So unpacking done, quick nip to another hotel pub as it serves real ale and now awaiting dinner for 6.15pm.

Oh and a few more photos of the last day of Merlins move. Back to Bunbury and the first thing we noticed, a sinking boat. Anglo-Welsh had informed the owner who seemed totally unconcerned. Big bill will be waiting for him as it sinks deeper and deeper no doubt!

New cill on the middle gates Bunbury staircase.

Sorry and I know I will upset some people but...I'm still very much against these stupid signs!
