Caravan trip Swanage July 2011

Caravan Break in Swanage Dorset

July 15th till 19th

 Never in the field of human conflict can you go to your caravan hook up and go. This time I bang the electric hook up connections on my VW, had to unbolt and re-site, so an extra ½ hours we are off.

The journey to Swanage was supposed to be 3 ½ hours but traffic delays it became 5 hours.

The Caravan Club site Haycraft was clean and tidy and full, Dorset is a very popular area winter or summer. This site was a member only so there were no idiots.

Corfe Castle and village was very near buy a very pretty place, sadly it rained when we arrived and kept going till the last day but we did manage approx 3 to 4 hours in the afternoon of dry weather. S we visited Poole and found Sandbanks a large beach on the peninsular where there was a big Beach Volley Ball tournament in progress. Never been keen on this but you see some quality matches it was quite exciting.

Sunday PM we spent in Weymouth this was a really interesting resort, the beach area had the normal side fun things but we went round the old docks where there were lots of Café, Pubs etc and a load of entertainment, we spent a good time listening to a band playing 60’s music great offered Val a jive but she refused, she made up for it later. On our last day we had a spin around Swanage and visited the three National Trust Beaches

The Weather was a disappointment but still good weekend and the trip home was in the dry and no traffic problems back in 3 ¾ hours, have to admit the VW Caravelle is a brilliant towing vehicle and comfortable to drive.
