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.
