The National Trust has compiled a list of
50 outdoor activities children should try
before they reach 11¾ years.
I asked my son to check the list honestly
and he found 42.
He probably didn't achieved this score
in the allotted timespan but I was happy with that.
Then I wondered how much of the list I could tick off
and found 38.
Swimming under the Pont du Gard at night
into a cloud of white moths rising from the surface,
is one of my more surprising memories.
