One of the reasons we wanted to move was that at our previous house all we could see around us was other houses.
My family had not sold off their long garden but the properties either side had and, like most of the land in what was once a small farming village, had been built on.
All of the rooms in our new house have a view; the bungalow sits in the middle of the garden.
Our most imposing view is of Murton Pike which stands at 1,949ft.
I have to confess that we have not climbed it yet but we plan to soon. I want a photograph from the top looking back at our house.
We do see hang gliders launching themselves off it with varying degrees of success.
I had a plan to take this photograph on the first day of each month with the idea of creating a calendar. The plan fell by the wayside and, really why do we need a calendar showing something that we can see every day?
