A Morning Walk Around Dongen, Holland

Sun warms the store fronts...
as one of the first cyclists sets out on the day.

A cafe, still sleeping soundly....

and a home showing no signs of life yet.

Flowers, a beautiful feature of Dutch life.
A quiet main street

A functioning church in Dongen....

or at least half functioning. This half of the church appears to be left to the mercy of time.

The neighborhood waits to start the day...

while converted farmhouses (this one caught my eye) are just beginning to stir.

The secluded pathway passes by a about a dozen soccer fields, many beautiful clay tennis courts...

and hockey fields awaiting the day's athletes.
