Very cool shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Hollie.

It is not very often that we see this 'floating' around in a meadow.
It shows how shallow the boat is to go through the small canals.
Great shot.
Ginnie Hart: I don't think I've ever seen a boat in Dutchland this out of it, MLMA. And as I've already told you, I really like your POV of it better than mine because of being able to see the lovely canal! But it's fun to have these times when we have two very different witnesses to the same thing. Thank you.
Dust to dust! smile I really like seeing the growth inside the boat! And I like Astrid's longer view as well!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I'm always enlightened by the different witness Astrid and I both have of the same image/event. This is a good example! smile
Ca va être difficile d'aller sur l'eau avec cette barque. LOL ! mais elle conserve une certaine beauté dans le rendu de son bois usé par le temps.
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it wonderful that no one has gotten rid of it! smile Merci, dear Marie.

I think it's fair to say its sailing days are over Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You could be right, Chris. grin
it makes a nice set of benches in the woods
Ginnie Hart: Hmmm. Maybe we could interest Chris???? smile

Just my sort of "Boat Friday" Ginnie. Can't wait to see Astrid's
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl, and you'll love Astrid's. Sometimes we have fun showing the difference between how we both witness something. smile WELCOME BACK. I sure missed you.

I don't think its sea worthy
Ginnie Hart: You may be right, Adrian! smile
A project for Chris..
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Mick!

Didn't Astrid run for her tool kit and knock this back into shape Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: She's still working on it, Chad. She's a perfectionist, so it takes a bit longer! smile
Boat becomes a planter, love it Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: A BIG planter, Martin, indeed. smile
Bet it could tell some tales if it could talk. Lovely photo.
Ginnie Hart: I bet it could, too, Pauline. Thanks.
We had an old boat in the yard of this house when we moved in. The kids had a ball in it over the years but it ended up looking like this after a few years and had to be removed. All that to say this shot sure brought back a lot of memories.
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. So I guess I took it just for you, Mary. Happy memories!
aha..Ginnie, I am sure we ladies can bring this booat back to life...
love the greens around it..
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Ronky. We could at least make it a great raised planter of flowers and veggies! smile

Superb! What a character!
Ginnie Hart: Character is definitely a good word for this, Ray. Thanks.
Old boats,great subjects,Ginnie,nicely taken.
Ginnie Hart: What would we do without them, Frank! smile Thanks.

I think this is going nowhere anytime soon. It will need more than a lick of paint at least.
Ginnie Hart: A lick of paint and a whole bunch of shoe polish, Alan. HA!
Ha ha!
There's even a rear-view mirror in the front?! Make way, big boat's approaching!

>And how did you know I was just talking to the Dutch husband of an Indonesian woman last Saturay about the Amsterdam rijsttafel restaurants!!!

He he... Big Brother is watching you! wink
Ginnie Hart: I'll have to start minding my p's and q's, LC. grin

In Astrid's pic I thought it was a pig's trough. Now I can see it is a sexy planter.

Normally these boats end up at the bottom of a canal. This one is lucky the live its old age in the sun when it is available smile
Ginnie Hart: Wouldn't it be fun to find all the boats and bicycles and cars at the bottom of the Dutch canals, Louis. What a scrap pile that would be! smile
Shortly to be compost!
Ginnie Hart: Definitely going back to earth, Tom!
Both pictures work so well together in partnership, as indeed do their authors of course.
Ginnie Hart: What a sweet and wonderful thing to say, Brian. Thank you. We call ourselves Partners in Crime. smile

pour ben Hur c'est au puy du fou : course de char ,gladiateur ,parade romaine ,chrétien et lion c'est wahouuuuuuu ,bises
Ginnie Hart: Ready for its second life, Keyouest! smile

awww, I bet the boat could tell some good stories!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Bonnie. I'm sure of it! smile
a few strips of cedar and a lot of varnish and she will be seaworthy again Ginnie grin
....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: That's the power of positive thinking, Peter, if I ever saw it! grin
It could be used as a flower bed Ginnie! Great find.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Richard. A lot of us feel the same way. smile
Yep I was right it isn't much of a boat....but it's a nice bit of decay grin
Ginnie Hart: A little bit of decay goes a long way in this case, Bill. HA!
Well just I suppose smile A rather interesting find Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: At least it's not at the bottom of the nearby canal, John! smile
It does need a little work.
That is a gorgeous shot.
Ginnie Hart: A little bit of decay goes a long way, Michael! smile Thanks.

Est-ce prudent de l'utiliser ?
JP
Ginnie Hart: Better here than on the bottom of the nearby canal, JP?
It looks as if it has been sitting there for a long, long, time, Ginnie. Would be interesting to know its actual age.
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Beverly. Maybe we can actually find out one day, when we go back! I'll be sure to let you know. smile

Definitely in need of some TCL.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Cherry. smile
You two make such a great team in so many ways!! Love both perspectives!
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. Thank you, dear Robin. We're fond of saying we're Partners in Crime. smile
Mother Nature taking the boat unto herself... eventually completely.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Jacquelyn. It's the law of Nature.
Schöne Aufnahme und schöne Farben!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Wolfgang.

Forgotten by time.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Paule. (Btw, I tried clicking on your link and nothing happened. I'll try later.)
