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".

A brief tour of Hurst castle spit and lymington Marshes

Now I am retired, it is nice to visit the places I taught about for so many years. One such place is Hurst castle Spit. I hope I have done the area justice in what is my first attempt at a case study summary video. It was only our second outing in 'Florrie' our new caravan as well.

Steve Brilliant, that's the definitive video of the Hurst spit and Keyhaven marshes - although your messages about protecting the environment leaves me feeling slightly guilty about kayaking through the channels.

We need you to make a similar film of the Hamble and as a PS we have a nice riverside caravan park for you to stay at.

Thanks Max. I wasn't sure. I did it with limited footage and really as an after thought. I felt I spoke too much, rushed in places but then I was trying to keep it to max 8 minutes. First video I have done like that so lots to learn and reflect on
DON'T feel guilty about canoeing through its creeks. Careful kayakers will appreciate its beauty and do minimal damage; and be able to enjoy it.
the campsite - good recommendation - we joined the camping and caravan club this year. we will be back up - not sure when - because we have the Portsmouth dockyard ticket and I've yet to do the Warrior and other exhibits
