This brief film is part of a collection that records a family from York's trips to the coast and countryside around North Yorkshire. The films were all shot by the Lord Mayor of York's son and are a child's view of these days before World War Two.

The film opens with a long shot of Whitby beach and shows the family together; there are beach huts visible in the background.

A boy is playing with a stick which he throws to his dog and it runs to retrieve it. There are shots of some of the children playing on the beach and posing for the camera.

Some of the adults and children stand around beside the deck chairs watching as one of the women buries something for the dog to find.
