  • Tarpon Club women sun and play Ping-Pong. There is a view from a tower showing a "glass house" on the boat dock. There are scenes of synchronized swimming from the tower, followed by scenes shot at water level. There is a view of the tower. Then, the camera pans out to bowl. There are more formations from high angle (some light fogging). Members walk past the camera and pose in the sun. There are scenes of the beach area showing visitors, including men in army uniforms. Wooden boats are seen near the dock. There is a view from the tower of a boat passing by with Newton Perry at the helm and the Tarpon Club Women waving.
