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 - 4th May. From the Oude Rijn, down the Dubbele Wericke waterway to join the Hollandse Ijssel canal. Across the tidal river Lek, on the Merwede canal
We are now on the Oude Rijn, Not all of the thatched houses here in Holland are old, and it is always interesting to see new shapes!
