Shadows cycling church paths

Beautiful sunny weather, shadows everywhere. Two kids busy with work and another with a football tournement. And so we were lucky for we had a whole sunny afternoon for ourselves. As we really like cyclying we placed our bikes on the car and drove off to a place from where we could make a bike trip over mostly old church paths.
At the beginning of our trip we cycled through a wood.
Note the shadows on the bridge. These church paths have been renovated and have become great paths to cycle over. In olden days these paths were used to walk to church. That's why they are named chuch paths. Ah here we are approaching one of the churches along this route.A closer look at the church spire. Time for a break. We parked our bikes agains a post.Cold ice tea and some biscuits taste good on a hot afternoon. There we go again along another reconstructed church path.
Note the shadows made by the young trees.Another church spire in the distance.Nearly back where we started.
Nature is lovely!
