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.

29th November - 1st December.
We drove through Donegal Town and out along Donegal Bay. The views across the bay are stunning.
We carried on to the viewpoint at Carrigan Head, to see the cliffs below Slieve League.There is nothing but The Atlantic Ocean to the west of this headland before you reach North America.
It is lovely to have friends with us to take our photo, with Slieve League in the background.
When we arrived the cliffs were impressive, with a cloud sitting on top of them.
There were several sheep along the narrow cliff top road. There does not seem to be much for them to eat up here.
There are some lovely sandy beaches along the Donegal coast, but they are deserted at this time of year.
This is one of the few traditional thatched cottages which remain in Donegal.
