Southbound. The Adventure Is Nearly Over
We are back where it all started, or rather where I started life, and VBW ended just over a week ago. We are not quite in Blackpool, in fact, glancing around, one would be forgiven for thinking we are in Texas.
V-Force One is camped at Great Birchwood Caravan and Campsite, at Warton, just outside Blackpool. The site also includes Fort San Antone, a Texas honky-tonk bar transferred to England.
In their own words "The Saloon / Restaurant decorated in the style of the Old West can hold 1,500 people, with seating for 650. It boasts three bars and has two dance floors which give you plenty of room for line dancing. The Restaurant with its full menu allows you to enjoy a good meal while you relax listening to great Country Music."
All this country stuff takes place at weekends only. There is even a shop where you can tog yourself up in country gear so you do not feel out of place.
It is amazing. Check it out at:
Today we set off southwards, staying with friends in Stockport overnight, then straight to the ferry at Portsmouth tomorrow night. Back in our adopted home of France on Wednesday morning. Home by Friday. The adventure is nearly over.
