Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

Construction began in 1882, 135 years ago at the time of my visit in 2017. The current estimated completion date is 2026 - 2028 but this will more than likely change.

Fleetwood Lifeboat Day 2017

So with all that said I was very happy that I could make it to the 2017 event and I was excited to get some photos of the New Fleetwood V[...]
