Wet Pleasure


On a sunny holiday afternoon we were riding along a trail in the countryside when we ran into a group of boys who were playing in the canal. I wouldn't voluntarily go swimming there, but then I'm not a roughly nine year old boy....a group not notoriously picky when it comes to fun. If I were their mother they'd all be taking a nice dose of parasite medicine pretty regularly too. But it was a perfect child moment.

Ah, but don't you feel sad for the little 9-year-old girls ...

For those who come after me, please enlarge this to see the joy and mischief on the faces of these children.

Looks like they're having fun! Reminds me of times down by the Plover River near our neighborhood with the neighborhood kids!

Great picture,children always find the simplest way to have fun. When we were growing up in the middle of Africa, we also used to swim in rivers that I would never let my own children swim in. We did survive to tell the tale, but it's a bit dodgey.

What a great picture! It brings a fugitive whiff of the joys of childhood tantalizing whizzing by my heart.
