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, 2017 and 2018, returning to Roanne each winter.

19th - 22nd April 2015. On to Oudekerk. A trip to Amsterdam.
Our day in Amsterdam began with a visit to the Rijksmuseum, which is huge.
Photography was allowed, so here is The Nightwatch by Rembrandt.
I liked The Threatened Swan by Jan Asselyn (1650) The black dog is getting closer!
This is Landscape with Waterfall by Van Ruisdael, also from the mid17th century
Another famous picture we saw was The Milkmaid by Vermeer.
