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".

It started so well

.......but ended in trauma. A twenty mile ride out on 'Stacey' our 1971 motovespa across the moors started the day. Wales losing by four points to South Africa. Traumatic. Deeply traumatic, especially when the boys played their hearts out.
Trauma!

Well, you can imagine how a Scotsman feels about the Ozzy game! The words "robbery" and "daylight" come to mind. Mustn't be bitter, though (or not much)...
Yours in mutual misery.

You were robbed......I think that last penalty....um........dubious call I think
So feeling very sorry for you Stuart and your team played so brilliantly as well...thrilling stuff from Scotland and with fairness from Wales as well

As a Kiwi I was generally pleased at our result against France (Sweet success on a number of levels in terms of the French if you are a Kiwi) and look forward to what will probably be a NZ / Australia final - BUT - 'There is many a slip twixt cup and lip' - anything can happen and probably will.

My brother is dual nationality, kiwi and UK; I didntbfollow the kiwis much so focused on the home nations challenge. I wish them well. I'm struggling to extend the same to the Aussies at this moment in time!!!
