Such a beautiful idyllic scene.
Picturit: It is Michael, it is...
Astrid.
Oh the good life....
Picturit: You know everything about that too, Frank... don't you often pinch yourself how lucky "we" are to be able to see the beauty of it all.
Astrid.
How gorgeous, Astrid. I always love it when you say that phrase. smile
Picturit: ...and I use it often, Ginnie, for I think we have a good life and am very thankful for what we have.... and I love the saying too "er is geen beter leven dan een goed leven"... smile

I think this is the first picture of a Dutch Church I have seen on your site. What date is it?
Picturit: That might be true, Lisl. Mostly Ginnie is the one posting and giving information. This is the link, too bad only in Dutch. There are traces found of the 7th century. Then they started building in the 15th century, however the church how it looks now is rebuilt in 1621. https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sint-Martinuskerk_(Woudrichem)
The church is dedicated to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_of_Tours
Ginnie has been inside, I did not go because I could not find a parking place for the car.

Very nice too Astrid, the land of dykes and placidness. I like the church
Picturit: That is true, Chris. This place never bores me and it is a little nice city.

It looks very peaceful here Astrid. Also, that church looks interesting and quite large.
Picturit: It is a large church compared to the "little city" it is in...
Love the place.

A beautiful scene. I especially like the reflections in the water.
Picturit: One of those places I often pass with the bike, Alan. Always a pleasure. Yesterday I passed it again and the same man was fishing there again...
Astrid.
This is an idyllic scene Lady P.
Picturit: It is, Bill. One of those place that never bore me.
Astrid.
One of your lovely windmills and a beutiful church, side by side, one can't ask for much better. Ilike the reflection of the church tower.
Picturit: Brian, this is one of those places I never get tired of going to. Yesterday I passed this again and the same man was fishing again (I doubt that he was "still" there wink)

A glorious Dutch summer day!
Picturit: That is the truth, Louis and we already have many of these days.... strange that we long for some rain which we need badly!
Astrid.
Que c'est beau, j'aime beaucoup.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine. It is a beautiful place.
Astrid.
OH! would i ever like to fish there Astrid... such a beautiful and peaceful image with the reflections....petersmile
Picturit: HA, I imagine, Peter. While I took the picture the man caught a nice fish, threw it back and started all over again... Yesterday I was here again and the same man too smile
Astrid.
Fishing and windmills... can it get any better?
Picturit: No Larry, it does not get better than this....
Astrid.
That church has a hint of English about it.
Picturit: Now that you mention it, yes indeed, Tom. It is "Roman Style"and that is why this shape, there are several in this part of Holland that are "similar".

Wonderful smile So perfectly seen smile
Picturit: Thank you, Cherry. That is the advantage of going by bike, I can stop whenever I want. I have a special backpack to carry my backpack and extra water and some food for the trip.
Astrid.
What a lovely shot! The reflections are great!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth, I was here again yesterday and the same man was there also. I so like this place.
Astrid.
The perfect day! Nothing like fishing. Beautiful capture!
Picturit: Thank you, Robin. These are the thing I love to watch when I ride my bike... it comes very close to "now I can die and go to heaven".... (I am not ready yet, far from it grin....)
Astrid.
