Old country exploring
In November my husband and I visited “the old country“. Being back in my home town where I grew during my teenage years, exploring sites like the old church, little stores and the streets I used to bike as a young girl. It was a rare pleasure to walk around and take the time to look around, noticing all the changes that have taken place in the past 30 some years since I called this town my home.
Going to the city , on the bike, I would come to the church and pass by this ancient water pump. Still love the view of these century old houses.
The church is surrounded by a low wall and beautiful magestic trees grow along all sides of the church.
Of course I knew that this was a very old church, I was however surprised to learn that they started building in the 12th century! Different parts were added over the next 4 centuries! Something to make you stop and think for a minute..

Another view along the south side of the church. Don’t you just love this knotted tree?!
View of the tree from the other side. Love the quaint houses behind it.
And here is a broader view of the houses along the church street.
On the South side is this beautiful tree, I wonder how old these trees are. And what changes have they all seen in their lifetimes!
I hope you enjoyed a little peak into my past home town.
