VW Action Southwest

This weekend i have spent it in a field camping at VW Action Southwest. Regarding the Weather we have really had it all on arrival Friday evening it was a bit chilly but a bright evening and watched an amazing sunset surrounded by classic Volkswagen's. With the open fire going we were all warm and enjoyed several ciders and a sing song.

Saturday morning started bright but with lots of frozen campers, people were even saying they had frost on the insides of their vans in the very early hours and we heard some comments that the temperature got as low as -2'C I must have slept through all of that because by the time i had woken the sun was shining and under my combination of blankets, sleeping bags and duvets i was snuggly warm. Saturday was great with the show and shine for Daily Drivers there were some beautiful vehicles "Although Questionable" that these were ALL daily drivers. I certainly wouldn't fancy driving a beach buggy in the rain that followed on Saturday but still very cool cars.

 Patina'd cars are not usually my thing but this quirky car i loved, i could have spent hours reading the comic print door cards.

Saturday early evening soon turned damp! Well that's to say the least, the dark clouds that had been threatening all day had finally decided that it was now time to absolutely chuck it down! Heading back to camp we joined gazebos, awnings and tarpaulin and continued to enjoy our music, good company and plenty of Cider and the occasional dash to the loo across a very muddy soggy field did not stop the fun.  

Sunday morning and the sky is blue and the sun is shining, not a cloud in sight and certainly not a drop of rain to be found! Today's show and shine was the concourse class and the super shiny cars were all out on display, All day walking around in the sun and my cheeks are now glowing!

 I'm now home from the show that certainly had it all in terms of weather, i have got very soggy, Freezing cold and sun burnt in the same weekend, but what an awesome weekend it has been, Thanks to the Action team for running the show and well done to all the jog'Lers that traveled from John o'Groats to Lands End on nothing but 50cc motor cycles to raise much founds for Brads cancer charity.
