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".

stormy times.......

The Thames has flooded. The worst for over forty years. Our island nation is under siege from awful weather. The worst winter in living memory..............flooding everywhere; our government in disarray; politicians playing the 'blame game'. Perhaps not our finest hour........from a government perspective; it is from a perspective of looking at the astonishing fortitude of our people who have suffered; their resilience is humbling. The rescue efforts and dedication of our emergency services and the environment agency breath taking
