Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog. My name is Steve and i am the lucky owner of a John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. I built her over three years with the help of my father, father-in-law and two children. She was launched in August 2007 at Queen Anne's battery marina in the barbican area of Plymouth. This blog is a record of our voyages together around SW England.
Arwen has a YouTube channel of her own. Search "plymouthwelshboy".

A noteworthy achievement

The Burlesdon Blogger has reached 250,000 page views on his blog and that is genuinely impressive. I like his blog; it is always interesting and gives a lovely historical snapshot of the ebb and flow of life around where he lives. It appeals to the historical geographer within me. You can get to his blog at

That started me thinking about this blog and so I thought I'd check the stats too. Well it sneaked past me without me noticing! There have been 111,000 page views since I started the blog. When did the 100,000 mark happen; why didn't I see it? Wow!

This is the stat's chart overview but the 111,056 number comes from the data at its side.

The chart giving the overview
I've tended to keep an eye on the colour map on the homepage more. the 'geographer' within me again. I think someone from 160 countries has now viewed the blog at least once. My ambition is to have a person from EVERY single country view the blog at least once. Now as a geographer, that's really cool!
