Ernest Freelove's film shows three summer holidays beginning in 1935 with the family heading for the beach in bathrobes. We next visit the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway followed by a return to the beach. Grandma drives her carriage along a road while the family follows on bikes. 1936 sees more beach antics and a sight of a German airship followed by a return to the RHDR. 1937 sees more frolics on the beach and in the surf while a couple ride a bike with a sidecar for their baby.
