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".

Neilson Messini Beachclub, Greece

Is in my humble opinion the best of the Neilson beach clubs I have stayed at thus far. The hotel staff are fantastic. Hard working, ever cheerful and confident in what they do. The food was delicious throughout the week. Occasionally a bit Samey some nights but high quality, very tasty, and plenty of choice.

We went for a pleasant bike ride this morning. I don't know much about bikes but what we rode today were far superior to our own bikes at home. We followed a route card provided by the hotel reception which took us, at our level, through farmland, olive groves, quiet villages and along golden beaches

A really pleasant way to start the day.

Well done Neilson. I think it is clear from my previous posts, I am impressed.

Hey, I past your place a couple of days ago. Next time I will call in. Your son was outstanding.....what a great guy and an outstanding team leader. Very highly respected by his instructors.

Best centre I have stayed at but as always, he centre is an irrelevance in my eyes. It is always the staff who make it

Next time I'll call in if hat is ok
