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.

30th - 31st August. Back to Lough Key. Shannon in action.


From Boyle we sailed back to the Lough Key moorings again. Shannon goes into the water at every opportunity, but this time she was caught by a wave!


She has really enjoyed the freedom of the woods here at Lough Key.


Now she is getting more adventurous with her tree climbing!


She will do anything for a treat!
Saturday was very busy at the Lough Key moorings as the Carrick branch were having a Care Day, with boat trips for the disabled. As the lough was definitely choppy, these trips were quite exciting!
We were pleased to be joined by Playtime again, with Brianne, Malachy, James, Ruairi and Michael.
