Description

This film opens with a family group enjoying a day out at the seaside (Felpham). The family sunbathe and play with a dog on the beach. A man assists a woman (both kneeling) wearing a bathing costume under her dress, to lift her dress over her head so she can change her clothing. The lady tips forward and falls head first into the sand with her dress over her head. In the film that follows a man blows up an inflatable toy or pillow whilst the family sit and eat. Finally they pack up their belongings to leave.
