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.

5th - 10th May. Northwards to cross Amstelmeer, by the North Sea, then south to Kolhorn, and on to Broekhorn.
These pictures were taken from the top of the dyke, looking down on Kolhorn.
Mother grebe has a passenger on board. It is too windy for him to manage on his own.
