Brighton Breeze 2007

A few scenes from yesterday, an overcast, but still fairly muggy day spent whizzing down (part of the way) from London to Brighton with the VW crowd -
Brighton Breeze #1
- I think we passed two other campers on the way (but we did set off super early, *and* Colin the Camper can break the speed limit if he needs to, although on this occasion we sat just on it all the way down) getting to Brighton in record time -
Brighton Breeze #2
- to find a nice spot (without paying the £32 to park right on the very front) just behind the drive (up a load of stairs, but it's good for your health!) -
Brighton Breeze #5
- the strip was pretty empty at this stage -
Brighton Breeze #6
- but most of the stalls were getting set up, so a bit of shopping (got a new RF aerial, some clothes and a little "paint it yourself" beetle money box -
Brighton Breeze #11
Brighton Breeze #24
Brighton Breeze #25
- then just walked the front, admiring all the wonderful bugs and buses -
Brighton Breeze #15
Brighton Breeze #14
Brighton Breeze #18
Brighton Breeze #30
Brighton Breeze #26
Brighton Breeze #38
- including some insanely original work -
Brighton Breeze #36
Brighton Breeze #37
Brighton Breeze #54
- some beautifully original work -
Brighton Breeze #68
Brighton Breeze #66
- and some just rather, well, interesting(!) work ;) -
Brighton Breeze #52
Brighton Breeze #51
Brighton Breeze #55
Brighton Breeze #57
- and some (more) that just made me laugh out loud -
Brighton Breeze #69
Brighton Breeze #70
- then we took a little walk along the pier (rude not to) -
Brighton Breeze #74
Brighton Breeze #76
- and shared a portion of chips sat on the beach -
Brighton Breeze #79
- what a lovely day... ;) Oh, the strip at the end of the day (packed!) we literally filled the drive from the pier all the way to the marina end of the (appropriately named) Volks railway - looking first to the right-
Brighton Breeze #71
- and then to the left -
Brighton Breeze #72

I'm new in the VW fan arena, and I love the photo session you did. Hopefully one day we get to exchange photos of our heroes. We started renting ours to share the VW mania a bit more, here's what we've got http://www.vwcampervanhero.co.uk/heroes.htm
We're prepping one splitscreen and hoping to get several others fixed up for the road very soon.
