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.

24th April. On to Lisse. Cycled to Keukenhof.

We moved on to Lisse, then cycled to Keukenhof, which is described as The Most Beautiful Spring Garden in the World. Having seen it, we would agree. We will let the flowers speak for themselves!
Shannon is doing her meerkat impression!

    1. Thanks very much. A lot has happened since we were all on the River Barrow last year.
