Summary

Footage of a family holiday in Newquay, that includes scenes of the film-maker's wife, Kay, and their two daughters playing on several sandy beaches and in rock pools; visiting a family, playing with their children and taking an outing. We also see the film-maker playing with his youngest daughter on a beach building sandcastles and posing for portraits on a rocky cliff top. Domestic scenes also show the family together as they leave a house.

Description

There are several shots of the local landscape, as a rocky coastline is filmed from cliff tops and rural villages are recorded. The family pose and play for the camera, alongside another family, who accompany them on an outing. We also see the film-maker playing with his youngest daughter on a beach building sandcastles, in a scene presumably filmed by his wife.
