Love this shot, Ginnie.

I expect you will all have a memorable weekend. Please say "hi" to Philine from Ray.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray. We will definitely say HI to Philine for you!
Say hello to Philine for me and i know that you will all have a great weekend.

i love this shot of the prop in a cage Ginnie...

i need one of those... i broke two props on the rocks this year grin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: We will say HELLO to Philine from you, Peter, for sure!

This propeller, btw, is at the side of the boat and, as Astrid says, is used for side-to-side maneuvering, not for forward propulsion. Leave it to Astrid to know. HA!

Love this picture and the treatment. It was great to see, 'what is under water', when we visited the shipyard.
Great shot of this 'maneuvering' prop.
I am looking forward in showing Philine around.
Ginnie Hart: You were the one who explained to me that this prop on the side of the boat is not for forward propulsion but for maneuvering the boat from side-to-side. Leave it to you to know! smile

We'll have a great time with Philine, showing her around our neck of the woods. She's already seen so much of the rest of the Netherlands!
I LOVE the bold colors in this! Great shot Ginnie!!
Give Philine a hug for me - tell her to eat my slice of apple cobbler! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It was a bold ship!

We will definitely give Philine a hug from you. You should have smelled Astrid's apple tart when I went into the kitchen after our Skype last night. OMG. smile

Oh, what for an exciting pattern and colour - you have to explain me this thing when I'll be in Gorkum!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. Soon I'll explain a lot to you. HA! Travel safely.

I'll probably spent all weekend going fore and aft or else going round in circles smile I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun with your German guest.

The always say include something red in the picture, this is a great example of that. Have a great weekend with Philine, it must be very nice to be able to meet her, she always sounds to be a very nice lady.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. We've had a great day with Philine and have sent her off to bed (our complex has a guest room for her). This is my 4th time to be with her...what a sweet lady!
I really love this capture Ginnie!
Have a great weekend with Philine.

All this red spells danger for Philine. I hope she knows how to hold on ...
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! She is quite the trooper, Louis, and hung on like the best of us! It was a fabulous weekend in every way.
i like the grainy texture in the image. have a great time you all, i'm guessing their will be photos of all three of you in the coming week
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. We all took many pictures, so it'll be most interesting to see what we all come up with. smile
saturated and a great close-up smile
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Joshi.
What a great looking propeller this is, Ginnie, encased in such a wonderful bold red.

The smell of an apple tart baking in an oven is intoxicating to me. I would love to be able to sample Astrid's. Lucky Philine to be spending the weekend with such gracious hosts. Hope you all have a wonderful time!
Ginnie Hart: I found out over the weekend from a high school classmate that this is a maneuvering thruster, Beverly. HA! Now we know!

We had a great weekend with Philine, showing her around our part of Dutchland. She is quite the trooper, as you know! smile
I would never have guessed this was for a boat. I thought it was just a fan. >> Give greetings to Philine > from me in Canada!! You all have fun now.
Ginnie Hart: A maneuvering thruster, Jacquelyn, I found out over the weekend from a high school classmate. And we did have a fabulous weekend with Philine! Thank you.
