This compilation of black-and-white and color family home movies was shot mostly around San Leon, Texas in the 1940s. Featured prominently are a fishing trip to the Gulf and scenes around the docks and cabins near Eagle Point Marina, intercut with brief images of a baby in a crib and a wife trimming her husband's beard.

The films of the Ray Jelinek Collection were rescued from a flooded trailer on Galveston after Hurricane Ike. They were donated by Jan Valentine and are permanently housed in the archives at the Alfred R. Neumann Library, University of Houston - Clear Lake.
