Remote controlled model boats are sailing on a pond in Albert Park. A small group of people that include the filmmaker's son, Martin, enjoy themselves on a water slide ride at the edge of the pond, with background views of terraced housing.

A boy climbs on a riverside wall.

There are scenes beside a river with a stone bridge in the background. A young girl is standing near the water's edge. There are several shots of flowers growing near the water. The girl then stands beside a Mini car.

The next sequence consists of night scenes filmed at Stokesley Fair with shots of dodgem cars and people enjoying the other fairground rides and games. The final shot is a still of a poster. [out of focus]
