...so long as what you have still floats!
Ginnie Hart: So far, Ray, I'm high and dry! smile
LOL! And so it is! Love!
Ginnie Hart: Gotta make good use of what we still have, Robin, right?! smile
Certainly! Especially when it's as pretty as this!
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes when we're at harbors with dijks, Elizabeth, depending on where we're standing, all we see is the sails going by. I love it. Thanks.

Wonderful detail, love the blue sky with clouds. And you need sail otherwise you don't come far...
AND always look up smile
Ginnie Hart: You know how much I love these Dutch boats, MLMA. How can anyone ever tire of such a sight??!! Thank you.
Sweet shot. I love the colour.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Michael.

Yes, you are right - and what for fine details you did capture!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Philine. As you know well, sometimes this is all you see when you are along the Dutch dijks. smile

Le vent dans les voiles

Ginnie Hart: Yes, exactly, JP. smile
I wouldn't want to have to climb up there Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: We'll leave it to Lady P, Bill. smile

...but if you really did need a boat, it would be better to have the bottom half, given a choice smile I like the clarity here, with all the rigging looking wonderful against that gorgeous sky.
Ginnie Hart: You're right, Alan, about which half is more important, of course. HA! Thanks for complimenting the other half. smile

That is a very famous saying Ginnie, thank you for reminding me of it. A very bright and clear image.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Thanks, Chad.
I like the rope flying in the wind.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Mary. I actually think it's a very thin banner of the Dutch flag: red, white and blue.

Indeed it is, especially as it is under full sail.
Ginnie Hart: It's easy to leave everything else to the imagination, Mike, isn't it. smile
Isn't that a Tudor Rose on the sail? wink
Kinda English, G.
Ginnie Hart: You probably know better than I do, LC! Maybe? smile
Seems to be a doing things by halves theme going on Ginnie. This is a great half view
