Sunday's In My City...

         Hello from beautiful sunny Holland : ) There is a place thats about a 30min bike ride from the house (we are buying bikes this summer to get out and enjoy this country) that we love to go to. It's huge,it's open,it's got water,wild cows that love to charge you..what more could one ask for? well a bathroom sure would be nice but that's asking to much for The Netherlands. They aren't porta-potty happy like the U.S. is. I've actually talked about this place one before Here. Each time you come you can take a different route and see something new.
       We came on a saturday evening wich is why you don't see 500 other people biking and walking around..saturdays are usually reserved for grocery shopping and just shopping in general. Plus saturday was Queen's Day here and there are several celebrations and parads going on in various cities. Why didn't we go you ask? My husband had to work and to be honest we aren't big parade going people.
        But we do love to walk we did!
                                          I think that I shall never see
                         A poem lovely as a tree.
                         A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
                         Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
                         A tree that looks at God all day
                         And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
                         A tree that may in Summer wear
                         A nest of robins in her hair;
                         Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
                         Who intimately lives with rain.
                         Poems are made by fools like me,
                         But only God can make a tree.
                          ~Joyce Kilmer, "Trees," 1914
         There is even a nice place to sit and enjoy the water.
        He sure did! I hope everyone has a wonderful sunday and a great week ahead! Head on over to Unknown Mami and join in on the fun of sharing your city with us!
