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.

BBQ on top of the world.

 Wednesday 18th July

It was a cycle ride for us this morning, after those elusive Red Squirrels. 5km through Pine forests with many a steep hill which, I might add,  walked up as I also did on the steeper descents. Not brave enough to just let the bike run! Part way along and a notice board pointing uphill to a lookout point. Well, we had to go see and then promptly wished we hadn't made the effort as the trees had all but blocked the view.

And what of those Red Squirrels? We were so close to a pair at one point. They were chattering away to each other but the foliage was to dense for us to see.

Leaving this lovely lakeside spot, we travelled but 12 km to a National Trust property called Florence Court. As members the house was free and a very informative guide showed us around the upstairs and downstairs(servants quarters. No photography allowed inside but I have put a link here if you fancy a look.

Water driven sawmills

As we were still in the Enniskillen area the 'park for the night' app showed another viewpoint where we could stay. Deciding on that one rather than return to our previous stop by the lake, we were completely blown away by what lay in front of us. Navar forest lookout...what an amazing place.

Can any other stopover compete with this??? Three weeks left and we shall see.

Wow Irene that's a fantastic spot, definitely not comparable with anywhere that I know of. Enjoy!

Thanks, Carol. I agree and it will be hard to beat that location. Xx
