Holidays were and are great times for buying stuff.
As a nipper in the Sixties I always spent a few shillings on sweets, comics, plastic toys and other essential tat.
My best purchase ever was a rubber dinghy. I loved that thing and can see me now just off the breakers in Wales smashing the hell out of kelp with my oar. I pretended that they were sea monsters. In fact my older Sister whose family I went to Abersoch with always asked me if I was going to be playing at monsters that day! ha ha.
I remember not having enough cash for the dinghy, which was hung in the Warren resort's beach shop like a prize turkey. For some reason I seem to recall getting more cash from my Parents miles away in Preston but how could they have done that? No idea.
God I remember how chuffed I was to actually go and buy the thing, which was already inflated in front of the shop. I walked it back to the caravan with a lot of difficulty but it was my absolute pride and joy that hot Welsh summer long ago.
