The boats are merely resting before their next adventure smile
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Cherry. That's the good way to look at it!

Ginnie Hart: HA! Good for you, Rian! grin
Lovely shot Ginnie, like the serene mood. Of course it could just be the quiet before the storm.
Ginnie Hart: The quiet before the storm is often how it happens here, John, so you're spot on! Thank you.

I love watching these boats on our walks. Love the tones. We will go out-n-about, we have a 3 day weekend smile
Wonderful picture, love the water. (and quote)
Ginnie Hart: Our harbors here never tire me out, MLMA. I love what we have here in our own backyard, just a walk away! Yes, we will go out-n-about this weekend, in spite of the rain! Bedankt.

Where are all the other boats Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: They're off to the left, Chris...lots of them. smile
Most harbours are unsafe places nowadays, Ginnie. Fine image.
Ginnie Hart: Hmmmm. Sad but true? I hope not. sad But thanks.

I like the quiet colours here, Ginnie, whilst the boats are at rest
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. Maybe they'll get a workout over the weekend. Monday is Queen's Day here in the Netherlands, so it's a long weekend.

a lovely, peaceful photo with the fine toning you are well-known for! Ja, ook jullie beiden een fijn weekeind toegewenst!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Philine. Hartstikke bedankt.
nice boat pic Ginnie. Have a good weekend too!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. One more week!!!
Great composition, just the time to pop below decks fo a swift G&T.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. Exactly. smile
you would like the grand harbour in Valletta, you can get a good view and a coffee to go with it.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Mick. I'd like that. smile Thanks.
I like the color of the water between bronze and mercury. Beautiful composition
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Marie. Merci.
Ha ha I just realised that today is of the Fri variety.
Ginnie Hart: Today is definitely of the Fri variety, Chad. Wake up and smell the roses. smile
Wonderful capture of these boats at rest Ginnie. I like the tones and light!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I am such a fan of harbors. Merci.
Seems a dreary day to go out anyway. I know a sailor with the last name Shedd. He is a very funny, humourous person and I can hear him coming out with something like that.
Ginnie Hart: HA! It's all in the name, as we know, Mary. smile Thanks.
A fine shot Ginnie, you have returned once again to your own signature style of presentation with this that I so enjoy.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Brian. Thank you.
Ein sehr schöne aufnahme!

Very nice photo!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sartenada.
Exactly, let's go exploring G!
Done much travelling these days? :o)
You have a good weekend.
Ginnie Hart: We're getting ready to fly to England a week from tomorrow, believe it or not. But other than that, it's just short trips we make. Last Saturday we drove 48 miles to see the Moses Bridge. You'll see that soon here. smile

Its good to be safe enjoy your weekend
Ginnie Hart: I love harbors for that reason, Vintage! Thanks.
A little bit of harbouring is good, now & again grin A good POV for this lovely shot, Ginnie smile Have a great weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Martin. Harboring is very good some of the time. Can't be out partying day in and day out. HA! grin Thanks.
Very true Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed. smile Thanks, Navin.
Biding their time, Ginnie, until they can unfurl the sails and set out on another sea adventure. I can just imagine how beautiful that red sail would be, backlit against the setting sun.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, yes, Beverly. Exactly! Thanks. smile

Oh, will you be out-n-about on a boat? Enjoy it and leave the steering to Lady Polder.
Ginnie Hart: No boat for us, Louis, except in our imagination. smile And definitely, Lady Polder will do the steering. smile

superb lines here, ginnie. sailboats are so elegant.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sherri. I LOVE sailboats. Yes, elegant is a good word for them.
Will you be sailing this weekend?
Ginnie Hart: Only in our imagination, Jacquelyn. smile Thanks.
I like the tones and clarity, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Graeme.
What is the point of having a boat if it never sails, I see it all around here and have never understood it. A nice image though.
Ginnie Hart: I guess sometimes they need a good rest, Les, but not without some good adventures in betweem! Thanks for stopping by.
So lovely, Ginnie! And your quote is fitting- as just today, a patient with breast cancer quoted John Wayne to me: "Courage is being scared to death, and saddling up anyway"!
Ginnie Hart: Ohhh, I love it, Elizabeth...that kind of courage! Thanks for sharing that.
Which harbor is this Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: This is our outer harbor on the Merwede river, Chantal, in Gorinchem.
j'aime bien ce côté argenté
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, l'Angevine. Merci.

A collection of small boats in port always struck me as a gossiping, talkative bunch smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like that, Geoff. grin Thank you.
Beautiful! I can't wait to see some of these scenes with my own eyes. But in the interim, I love seeing what you see!
Ginnie Hart: You will LOVE walking around our citadel city, Robin. There is so much to see HERE even without going anywhere else! We can hardly wait.
