Shadow cycling

Yesterday morning we saw many shadows when we cycled along the little river Aa from Dinxperlo in Holland to Bocholt in Germany. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was a wonderful route to cycle.

There was a flower and vegetable market on the square in front of the historical townhall in Bocholt.

Here we are on our way back. This is a very narrow path we had to cycle over when the route left the river for a little while. My hubby also loves taking pictures and here you can see him in action.Little dam in the river. Ah there we are back at the TOP (touristic transfer point) where we parked our car.

Lovely shots...especially like the one of the small path...seemingly going on into infinity. Hey, just thought of this...you might be familiar with some woods whose paths have stone statues scattered about. I went through them - quite by chance - while in Europe back in 1972. Do you know of them?

Love your tree shadows.

Looks like a magical trip! Cycling is such a wonderful way to explore areas. You see so much more, can stop whenever you like, are able to experience the fresh air and sunshine. And it's great exercise. A form of exercise that's actually fun! I just want to jump on my bike now and take off on an exciting adventure too! Loved the tour and all the photos!

Fabulous shadow shots! Love the reflection of the trees in the water! Oh, and it's so good to see green everywhere again!

Fabulous! I love the photo along the canal with the shadows of the trees reflecting in the water.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day! Thanks for sharing.
