One of the best things for us about the upcoming summer months is the loading up of the car and the heading off to the beach for a bit of seaside fun.
It’s what memories are made of. A bit of sun, some sand, and a bucket and spade to build awesome sandcastles surrounded by a moat an the obligatory flag (usually an ice lolly stick) waving proudly out of the top.
Not to mention some paddling in the sea as well. Which would usually be freezing, but that’s half the fun!
The car journey for us when we were little would begin with everyone piling into the car, Dad driving and Mum with the little bag of pear drops and sherbet lemons to suck on as Dad manoeuvred the streets to take us to our coastal destination.
Wales was always a firm favourite, so quite a lot of driving was involved for this.
Just hoping that we didn’t actually ever get lost, because actually asking for directions was never on the cards. You can’t ask for directions, that’s far too easy! Surely you’re meant to go round and round in circles getting more and more irate when you can’t figure out which way to go?!
No? Just us?! Oh well…….
As there can be a lot of driving involved for summer holidays, don’t forget to check your car tyres and make sure there’s some spare ones in the boot for emergencies.
Point-S has a great range of tyres available in all kinds of tyre types and brands, so there’s bound to be one to match your needs and car.
What are your favourite car driving and trip memories?
Wherever you go this year, make sure lots of good memories are made!
