Beautiful boats and I love the way the shot fades off into the mist.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. We had more fog that day than you could shake a stick at!
The boats are cozying it up too. I'll be by the fireplace > as it's still so cold and big banks of snow here.
Ginnie Hart: The boats are what made me think "cozy," Jacquelyn. I wonder what kind of hanky-pank happens at night?? grin
This is a nice soft atmosphere Ginnie... the two canal boats seem to be cozying up as well....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. The boats look like they're very good neighbors who understand all about Cozy! smile
Lovely, Ginnie! I love how the background just fades into the distance!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. This was that very foggy day when Philine was with us and we were snapping pictures all day long!

Absolute beautiful picture. I talked to this man when he went through the lock, that day.
I think if he got a Euro for each picture taken from his boat, he might be a rich man.
Love the reflections.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, MLMA. I love these boats and all the more when you can see who owns rhem and even talk to them.

I was only telling our chum Blackdog how nice an area you live in when I saw him recently Ginnie. This picture helps to show why
Ginnie Hart: All your chums would love where we live, Chris, I'm sure of it! Thank you.

I wondering if this was anotehr shot taken during the visit of your delightful guest. I do love the stillness here. Those rudders are HUGE smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Alan. This was the day when Philine walked with us around our citadel city. EWe had fog the entire day, which was most unusual but delightful for picture-taking. smile

Are you going to experience an unforgettable narrowboat holiday from London to Bath by canal this May? wink Just suggesting x
Ginnie Hart: If we could swing it, LC, we would definitely consider it! smile
I thought, with the fog, it might have been the day you took Philine out to the Polders, and I bet she enjoyed these two lovely Continental style boats, I know I am glad you showed them to us.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Brian. Philine was with us on that very foggy day. We had a blast seeing everything with new eyes!
