Blackpool Sands was the venue for the last stop of our two week vacation. This was to attend the “2016 Vans in the Sands” camper van meet. This is a unique opportunity to camp on one of the best kept beaches in the country. It turned out to be a cracking event, and the Grand-Finale by all accounts.
Last year we attended the same event and this is the reason we committed ourselves early on as soon as the 2016 event came available this earlier in the year. Last year it was at the mid way point on our two week travels, and we had relatives visit which distracted slightly from socializing with the other campervan owners . 2016 was different in as much as it was our time to sit back, have a drink, and enjoy a little company with like minded people before we embarked on the drive back to Derby to conclude our holiday. Words can’t describe just how good it was. We made some great friends, and caught up with some of the people we met last year. We have decided that everything permitting we should be attending Vans in the Sands 2017
