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.

17th - 21st April. Down the Méditerranée locks to Santanay, then on to Fragnes.
At lock 1 the mural on the control house fascinated Shannon. “ Are we going along that canal?”
We found this little lizard sunning himself on the bench there. His fingers are extremely long!
