Feeling Groovy

 

Sometimes you just have to slow down and make the moment last!

This was a couple of Sundays ago while taking a joy-ride in the Dutch polder...before it snowed again.


Have a groovy weekend!

It is a little different approach of; 'Honey do you take the dog for a walk'.
This is priceless and a unique view.
I love these rides with all these goodies, showing up smile
Ginnie Hart: It totally made my day, MLMA. Leave it to the Dutch who HAVE to be outside, no matter what the weather.

And they've got their dog with them too! Today we have deep snow here in Bath
Ginnie Hart: I think we'll get your snow over the weekend, Chris, adding to the 4 inches we already have. YIPPEE.
The dog is happy, beautiful photo!Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Happiness all around, Roland, yes. Thanks.
Ange would like this smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! It reminds me of the hayrides we used to take in the brisk autumn nights, Bill. smile

What a wonderful way to enjoy the country side and the pooch seems to be having a great time. Beautifully seen and captured Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: This is so typical of what the Dutch do, Laurette. They HAVE to be outside, no matter what. But this took the cake for me. smile Thanks.
Aw.. that's a St Bernard, right?!
I always wanted to have one x

>I’m a Rooster. What are you???
No way?! I though you were a Tiger.
Me? I'm a Ram. Ha ha
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure about the St. Bernard part, LC, but I AM sure of the Rooster part. smile
What a lovely sight Ginnie. It looks like President Putin is taking a break over there
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Janet. And now that you say it, yes, I do see the resemblance. smile
That is one fine horse
Ginnie Hart: Big enough to carry the whole shootin-kaboodle! smile

You guys up north are a bit funny. All this joy because of snow - if it lasts for a week, listen to moaning smile

A nice picture of the little dutch family: horse (Frisian), ma in charge, pa holding on for dear life and the dog (cross-bred collie)
Ginnie Hart: You obviously klnow whereof you speak, Louis. grin I love it. Thanks.
Great stuff, Ginnie,love the dog,They've got it right! smile
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling we have a lot to learn from the dog, Frank! smile Thanks.
We often see people riding about in a pony and trap, it is a nice feeling of old times to see them.
Ginnie Hart: Just think how much fun they have, knowing we're photographing them. smile Thanks, Brian.

A touch of 'old world charm' - Yes...to 'slow down and make the moment last!'
Ginnie Hart: What is it about yesteryear that gives us pause, Sue! (sigh) Thanks.
ben ils leur manquent un sourire!!!lol qu'il est beau ce cheval
Ginnie Hart: I bet they're al;l smiling on the inside because this feels so good! smile Merci.
The only way to travel Ginnie.

What a wonderful scene you have captured.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Cherry. How could we resist!
I suspect this is something this trio has done many times before, Ginnie. It looks as if the doggie has a big smile for the camera.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Beverly. I have a feeling they have all paid their dues and are now living the life of Riley! smile

Bonsoir Ginnie. Superb photo with nice colors and light. Great work Ginnie. Have a lovely night. Amicalement Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, as always, Antoine. Merci.
I see that the dog is enjoying the ride - and having his photo taken!
Ginnie Hart: That dog knows what's important in life, Tom! smile
What a stunning capture Ginnie, I just love the dog handing over the side smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sally. I think that dog is trying to teach us something about life! smile

Ginnie Hart: Good point about the dog sticking it's head out, Ayush. HA! I love it. Thanks.

This looks so fun! They offer carriage rides in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada. They are so expensive though. But really worth it if you'd like a comfortable tour of the town. DId you have a chance to go on this, Ginnie? If so, what did you think? smile
Ginnie Hart: I know about such carriage rides, Emily, especially in Central Park, NYC. This, however, is very private and personal, out in the middle of the Dutch polder where no tourists are. That's what made it so special. smile
This looks like fun. It reminds me of the Amish riding their carriages on the countryside roads of Ohio.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Doug, indeed. I immediately thought of the Amish! Thanks.
