I know many of us enjoy doing the things mentioned in the books: sailing and fishing, or maybe a more detailed specific thing like making splatchers or eating bunloaf.
But there are some things you simply cannot arrange to do. Drift to Holland accidentally, and so on! I'd never thought about it before, until one happened to me by accident.
Cycling round the Army ranges near my house, visiting a corner that I'd been to only oncve before (memorably falling off my bike and wetting an ankle in a stream) I found myself approaching a slope which lead downwards to a... wait a minute! I was here five minutes ago! That's the same plank bridge across the same stream!
I'd been making up the route as I went, skirting round the edge of a horse-riding show that adjoined the ranges, and somehow had ridden in a big curve, right back the way I had come, till I'd looped around and rejoined my own tracks without realising it.
I felt very silly, until I realised I could now experience the same feelings that Titty and Roger did, when lost in the fog in Swallowdale.
Oh, except it wasn't foggy. Whoops.
Anyway, who else has recreated a moment from the books inadvertantly?
