As you roast hot dogs on the fire, go birdwatching, tell ghost stories, grab a beverage from the cooler and do cartwheels on the beach, the conversation turns to what's on the group's mind. There are awkward moments talking about sex, chats about nature or the most important ingredients in a hot dog.
It's a short game, but one that feels like living in a well observed novel. It captures the expanding of horizons, and perplexity of moving from childhood to adulthood.
