Perfection, as is your presentation, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Lady.

i never heard of gablestones till i saw your collage.... does that say 'hide the watermelon'? lol sounds like a fun game
Ginnie Hart: And I had never seen a gable stone, Elaine, till I moved here. Now I look for them everywhere I go...just like weathervanes. LOL about the watermelon. A watermolen is a water mill...to pump water from the polder.

You certainly have this windmill theme running hot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'm at the end for now, Ray, but now I have some boats. HA!
good find Ginnie... i like the texture and colours of the gable stone... and of course the windmill....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. When I saw this one, I was sure I had found gold!
Great find Ginnie, and so very nicely presented!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Brilliant!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Chris. I got out of the car for this one as we passed through town on our way home one day. smile

This was such an unexpected find, in a very narrow street where we happened to stop. I love looking out for these treasures. LOVE the presentation. A windmill-gable-stone how often will that happen....
Ginnie Hart: It was the thing that made my day...at the end of the day. We were so lucky! And thanks, again, for stopping on a dime to let me capture it. smile

I love finding these little details on streets - are they called grabblestones or is that a Ginnieism?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Mike. No, they're only gable stones, but I sure do love "grabbing" them. smile
Cornwall is really beautiful! I'm sure you'll love it. Go and visit St Ives, it's a classic place. I've been there so many times.
Ginnie Hart: Once I'm there, I'll let you know what we visit, LC. It's all being set up for me, as we speak.
They could have done it just for you Ginnie, a fine example.
Ginnie Hart: You never know about these things, Chad! smile Thanks.
Hello, very nicely shot Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland.
You got it all in this one. All you need is a weathervane on top of the windmill and it would be perfection.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Mary. I should have thought of that myself! smile

I imagined myself although you liked very much mills Ginnie and that one does not miss charm
Ginnie Hart: Even if they're not real, Marie, yes, I love these mills. smile
