Pont du Gard

After a our field trip to Nîmes we stopped by the Pont Du Gard. It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. We swam in the river that runs under this pretty impressive piece of ancient plumbing. A few of us attempted to swim all the way underneath it, but ran out of stamina right before the arches. I slid up some slimy rocks, rested and swam back across the river to get back to our classmates.

It’s a bit nippy, but, I highly recommend taking a dip if you get the chance.

On the path leading to the Pont Du Gard is this Spanish olive tree, apparently over 1,000-years-old. It was replanted here because … trees love a change of scenery?
