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".

Sicilian evenings......

"Last night we picnicked on the top step of our small apartment. It is a farm house block of four apartments but the building is only two stories high. There are eleven steps up to our solid green metal door. A black wrought iron set of railings stop us plunging to the gravel below. Beneath the little washing line we'd strung across two corners of the upper railings with our hand washed laundry pegged out to dry,  we sat and tore apart  country Cobb bread, munched and slurped our way through juicy fresh pears and my missus demonstrated that she hadn't lost the ways of her youth. She can still slug down red wine straight from the bottle neck! "
