I walk with a friend two or three times a week very early, usually at 7 AM. It is still dark as the sun doesn’t rise until well after 8. I always have her text me when she is ready as one morning she overslept and I decided to head out on my own. The walk we always do is at the edge of a forest/park, around a lake and it isn’t very well lit which is fine when there are two of you but it was way too dark when I was by myself even though a jogger or two went by. I enjoy seeing shops still lit up in the area.
Here’s a look at the edge of the walk on a foggy morning.
An old time boulangerie, or bakery, still lit inside. This is actually a very well known place.
Kouglof for sale inside. It is a Christmas pastry which originated in Alsace.
A close up. I don’t think I have ever had one. I think it is sort of a fruit cake, although raisins are the only fruit.
A simple Christmas decoration in the window.
