Description

This is film of a family holiday in Bridlington.  It includes footage of the family swimming in the sea and playing on the beach.  

The film starts with a road sign for Bridlington.  Then a girl in swimming costume and with an inflatable ring poses for the camera on the beach.  A couple are out playing with their pet dog, and they are joined by several other girls also posing for the camera.  The family, with three girls and two women, sit outside their hotel with a baby.  A man joins the girls paddling in the sea, and a fishing vessel is seen passing in the distance.  They have a game with a ball on the beach, in front of the beach huts, where others are sitting and drinking tea.  There is much larking about playing on the beach, this one possibly at Flamborough.  Another man is also filming with a cine camera.  The film finishes back on the beach at Bridlington, with all seated on deckchairs.
