Oh, the joy of walking to school! The shady pavement and the interesting homes all along the street.
Oh, the joy of walking with the neighbour's children too; one on a bike and one on a scooter.
Oh, the joy of listening to seven-year-old girls talking.
"This is where Dr Dipstick lives" (turns out to be true, he's a clown doctor).
"Granny, the dog's name is Lollypop, not Mollypop!"
The Gabion wall where pretty coloured glass ornaments are interspersed among the stones. "Look, Gran, this one is a starfish."
Oh, the unjoy of stepping in dog pooh - but the children's laughter made up for the indignity.
Olive trees, lemon trees all along the street.
