Our camera stopped working at New Year, and spent over a month in camera hospital, but is now back in action. January was taken up with some bridge and lots of bowls. We had a lot of rain, but little snow.
After Norfolk, it was across England to Cheltenham, where the Morris Dancers in town kept us entertained.
Next day I went with Debbie to see the snowdrops at Colesbourne Park. We are told that there are over 200 different species of snowdrop in the park.
Matt came too, but where is Toad?
There were wonderful clumps of cyclamen among the snowdrops.
The lake in the park has been created by damming the river, and creates splendid colours and reflections.
Meanwhile in Enniskillen the River Erne keeps on rising! The walk through the park at Broadmeadow normally continues on along the river bank behind Andy.
Further on the path disappears again, as the road curves round behind the Forum.
This jetty beyond the Forum is not currently accessible by land!
At the Round O, Shannon delights in playing with the swans. She has no fear of them, and they do not know what to make of her!
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.
