VW Action

Every year my husband and I go to at least one VW festival, this year we went to VW Action at Santa Pod Raceway, UK.  The weather was mainly sunny except for a blight of gale force wind on the Friday, which wasn't fun whilst putting up our tent! We usually attend these VW events in our 1970s VW Campervan called 'Buzz' but he needs a little TLC at the moment, so tenting it was!  Here are some photos that I took whilst I was there.

  This Beetle owner must have been taking a large family on holiday ;-)

 Don't you just love the artwork on this Campervan!

Dusk at our campsite.

 My hubby chilling out in the morning rays.

 Breakfast time, beer or juice?

Lastly, just little me enjoying the last of the summer.

I will be back soon after a commision painting is finished :-)  In the meantime please take a look at 'Florance and the Machine' a band I went to see perform live last night at the Hull Freedom Festval. Florance Welch had the audience of Hull captivated last night, her voice is so beautiful and her lyrics are filled with layers of magic, melancholy and love.  Thank you Florance for putting on such an amazing performance, my friend and I left with goosebumps and our hearts warmed! x x x
