Turning right from my house, we walk along Pixie Lane.
Here we are at the start of the steep climb out of the village. It is good for the heart but I'm not sure about the knees.
Stopping to catch our breath halfway up the hill, we look down on the modern houses and across the Great Field to the estuary.
I hope you think the view from the top of the hill was worth the effort. The morning mist hasn't quite cleared but you can just see the River Taw making its way to the Bristol Channel.
