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.

27th - 28th August 2016. Pagny-sur-Meuse, Toul, then on the river Moselle to Liverdun.
Andy and Shannon are relaxing in Pagny.
On to Toul, where a moat surrounds the old centre of town, with a splendid cathedral too. From Toul we continued on, down the river Moselle. We moved on to moor in an inlet of the Moselle, just below Liverdun. This town climbs the hillside up from the river, with the old town situated right at the top. This is a fascinating place and well worth a visit.
