When I was about eight or nine we went to Great Yarmouth for a week.  My Dad went with us which was a bit unusual.  He usually worked an extra week while we were away - to get "double time" pay, to pay for the holiday.
I loved the holiday as we were together as a family and Yarmouth had such big pavements and areas to walk along.  It was very large and exciting.  We bought some little plastic birds which you filled with water.  They had a spout like a pipe and if you blew into it they chortled like the sound of a bird.
We watched a children's talent contest.  I hadn't seen anything like that before.
