These are the adventures of Andy and Sally Rawnsley on their narrowboat "The Puzzler". We have been living on the boat for over eight 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, returning to Roanne for a second winter.

2nd - 16th April 2012 Easter in Enniskillen
On Easter Monday we went to Ballybay in County Monaghan with our friends, Janet and Maurice, for a charity bowling afternoon on the all-weather bowling green there.
A good time was had by all of us, as we played on in the rain. Janet can be seen in the middle of this group.
Mrs. Duck brought her new babies to see us, but they are still too young to appreciate bread.
On Friday we cleaned and polished The Puzzler, ready for the press! We were duly interviewed and photographed for a proposed article in The Impartial Reporter, one of Enniskillen's local papers.
Back at the Ardhowen mooring for the weekend, we found that boaters are getting younger this year. This young man is well prepared for anything!
