The VW van forum we subscribe to has an annual get together at Beaulieu Motor Museum. It is a relatively quiet layer back fair with a lot of games for the kids, a smattering of traders and a fancy dress event.
This year’s fancy dress event was a drive out to Sammy Millers motorcycle museum where there was a large gathering of strongly dressed folk having morning coffee. Sue went as Cruella De Ville complete with a spotty dog pup, I thought she looked convincing, and I went as Kojak because it didn’t need too much dressing up and I got a lolly to suck.
We had a walk around the estate and visited the museum included in the event entry. Its a while since we had been there and it was interesting to see some of the new stuff . I was particularly amused by the Outspan mini. My friend, who’s father was the accountant there at the time, spent a summer with several young ladies touring the seaside resorts with this promotional motor.
I bought a set of pressed registration plates from Duflecta and another trader was selling Vango Kella drive away tents for a good price. We spent couple of days considering it and decided to buy one. I will write about it once we have used it a few times.
