Campervan heads to Skeggie
VW Campervan Bertie heads for Skegness for Bank Holiday weekend.
Aaarg what’s that dazzling white orb on a sky blue background? It’s the UK May Bank Holiday sun. This cannot be I hear you say:) Amazing! Perfect for hiring a campervan and heading to the coast.
What is also amazing is how the nice weather brings in lots of enquiries. We are already, at the beginning of May almost at the same level of bookings as the whole of last year and last year was a goodun. Admittedly we now have twice as many vans (ie two) but business is picking up nicely in the VW campervan rental game.
I’ve included below a pic of campervan Bertie’s door panel. Just took it the other day on a whim whilst waiting for a customer. Thought it was just like today’s sky. The photo of the actual sky turned out a little different but it’s near enough.
Feel almost a little silly in that we included the heater in one of the vans this weekend. Hottest weekend of the year!
Anyway if you see Bertie in or around Skeggy give him a wave of nip along and say hello. We head to Skeg at least once every summer, park at the big car park at the end of the promenade and walk along to the pier amusements. Then it’s fish, chips and mushy peas at the clocktower chippy, a game of crazy golf, maybe a go on the log flume and hire a pedalo for 30 minutes or so.
Don’t forget to slap on the sunscreen. Usually on the way home we pick up some bbq ingredients and fire up the barbecue when we get back. Nothing like a few cold ones at the end of a hot day at the seaside.
