The Ley Arms has been in the village of Kenn since the 13th century. It's very much the quintessential English pub and was a nice place to spend Saturday night.

Stunning photo of Martha against the beautiful hills of Kenn. We found out that incredible crop is called rape seed, although the teenage son of our hosts blushed a bit when he told us.

It made us giggle that all the place names seemed to involve 'Ken'. Someone called Ken must've made quite an impression many centuries ago. We joked that the Topp Twins would love it here.

At the Ley Arms, there was the best dessert menu I have ever seen with so many options. My sticky fig pudding did not disappoint (and no doubt helped me soldier on at the next day's half marathon).

Martha and I with giant smiles before the Great West Run began. There was a cool breeze and a feeling of excitement.

The B&B we stayed at had a father/son team competing in Kenn's annual go kart grand prix. This was another kart in the race. It was a lot of fun standing on that hill with all the locals, although scary seeing how steep the hill was.

Tim and I reenact Basil giving Manuel a tap with a spoon because we were in Torquay, home to Fawlty Towers.
