These are the adventures of Andy and Sally Rawnsley on their narrowboat "The Puzzler". We have been living on the boat for over nine years now and are still loving it. Our Ulster born Shih Tzu, Shannon, has grown up, and has taken over the boat! After three wonderful years in Ireland, we transported The Puzzler to The Netherlands, and spent a year there. In 2015 we went southwards, to reach the north of France by June. After glorious weather throughout the summer, we arrived in Roanne in late October, and enjoyed our winter in this friendly port. We cruised extensively in France in 2016 and 2017, returning to Roanne each winter.

1st - 9th November. Bridge, bowls, and river reflections in Enniskillen.
The police launch is about again today.They always manage to look very busy.
We can bring the trolley right to the boat at this mooring, and can then use the side doors for unloading the shopping.
A sleepy heron watches us go past him.
Heading back across to the Round "O" in the morning, there are more reflections in the river.This stillness of water is more usually seen on canals, rather than here on the river.
Later in the day at the Round "O", the reflections move to the other side of the River Erne. A rowing eight is out for training, with their coach in attendance.
Finally, in the evening, the sun sets behind the trees of the Round "O" park.
