aaaaah, boats, tempest tossed? the weather always seems nice there smile i like the line of trees in the background
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. This was a fairly secluded harbor on the inside of the river...very calm, cool and collected. Very Dutch, including those trees. smile

In a lot of southern UK, boats seem to be best form of transport for now. No sign of the end, yet! I like the feeling of peace and calm here.
Ginnie Hart: My heart goes out to those who are affected there in the UK, Alan. What devastation! Maybe we need to send some of the Dutch windmills over...though I 'spect it's too late for that now. Peace and calm would be nice!

That's lovely, Ginnie. The reflections seem deeper in b&w as with Mary's photo.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline, and yes!

Valentine's wishes for Americans only? The guy was an Italian, back then. Even here they are peddling red stuff today and all restaurants will be fully booked tonight. Right at the point of Africa.

An excellent pic and lovies for this and all future Fridays.
Ginnie Hart: Well, the Dutch celebrate the day, Louis, in these last years, but it bothers the heck out of Astrid...all the commercialism from America. I get it, of course. But still, she does know it's a special day. smile
Cracking image Ginnie! lovely reflections too!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Ronky.
I wish that was a pond of chocolate like the one in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. wink

Happy V'day!
Ginnie Hart: Lots of luck, LC. HA! smile
This looks good in B.& W.Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Brian!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Joshi.
Wonderful Ginnie! I really like your conversion.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a lot, Richard.
Some nice reflections here, Ginnie,lovely b/w too.Happy Valentines to you. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Frank. I'm so glad you get to experience V-Day there with Elizabeth. Enjoy every minute of it. smile
A nice place to spend the winter (for a ship). I like the quiet mood.
Ginnie Hart: A very nice, cozy, protected inner harbor, Wim! smile Bedankt.
You've captured the quietude of this secluded harbour beautifully in B&W, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Beverly!
