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".

Give me sunshine.......

In sunny Barcelona.
Ola!
Her indoors has taken me for a few days to sunny Barcelona. We arrived earlier and she allowed me to head to the beach immediately. Nice to see the med again.
Strolled along the seafront; had a crepe caramel......yummy. Went and saw a giant copper fish......photos will follow.  Saw that the team had bought my yacht down from
Plymouth with its helicopter (I jest of of course!).
Wandered through streets with wonderful old architecture and reached the conclusion that Barcelona may just rival Rome for our life long affections. And that's saying something given how we both feel about Rome. Wow!
Went out to a lovely tapas restaurant. I'm full and the missus is still starving. Exquisite cuisine though.
Now planning tomorrows itinerary. Really chill'in. Can feel the stress evaporating.....but then I am married to the most gorgeous and intelligent woman on the planet......so throw in laid back Spanish and snazzy Barcelona.....perfect!
