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.

14th - 28th February. Tree Cutting and Zone bowls.
More trees are being felled behind the Police Station. Rumour has it that this is all in preparation for the G8 summit.
However, we cannot complain about all this timber, which somehow finds its way on to The Puzzzler!
We moved back to the Round "O" after dark one night, passing the Police launch, moored outside the Police Station.
The Round "O" looks quite different after dark. Click on this picture to enlarge it and get the full effect!
