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.

1st - 13th February 2015. Ice in the harbour, Bridge party on board and a trim for Shannon.
We had a bridge party with six friends from Schagen, and managed to get all eight of us round the table for supper
Shannon still has no fear of swans, even though they hiss at her. This is a risky game!
