Enjoy your trip!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Hollie. We plan to! smile
It looks like the boat is caught in a storm.
Ginnie Hart: That's why we're flying, Michael! grin

....and the high seas we fly smile Wonderful weather vane, love the treatment. I seems to me that the weather-vanes become more beautiful each times.
Like Chris, I cannot wait.
Ginnie Hart: It did seem appropriate for today, MLMA. And yes, the weathervanes keep getting better and better (partly because I can capture them better with this new camera, don't you think?). We're almost on our way....
Have a great meeting fly high guys.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Scotia. Too bad you and Hamish can't join us!!!

a wonderful, fitting photo - yes, the sky is weeping at the moment like the weeping willow, but the sun will be out on Sunday again according the weather forecast. Enjoy your days and have a great time together! I see Chris can't wait to embrace and kiss you both!
Ginnie Hart: We're finally getting the rain we need here in Dutchland, Philine, so I can't complain. Really looking forward to the meet-up. I'm sure your name will come up more than once...with great fondness. We'll miss you.

May the wind fill your sails and blow you swiftly along. Umm....bring a raincoat! It's heavy rain today in and blowing gale in Cumbria; still, at least the lakes are getting topped up. See you Sunday smile
Ginnie Hart: We're having rain here, too, Alan, so it's all fitting. Rain or shine, we'll have a great time. Looking forward to seeing you again!
Safe journey!! I am off shortly to meet up with Peter and Penny and take then to the Vitorian town at Blists Hill where we had the shutterchance meet up. I will also take them into Ironbridge hopefully
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill, and say HI. Safe travels to you, too. See you soon.
Bring raincoats and Wellington boots, it's wet and windy.
Ginnie Hart: It's the same here, Mick, so we know!!! smile My kind of weather...as long as the rain stops when we want to take pictures. HA!
I am sure is a breton flag ! LOL !
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe so, Marie. grin

A fine weather vane as you set sail for the soggy UK.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mike. It's a bit soggy here, too, so we won't notice a thing! smile. Getting ready to leave from the Amsterdam airport as we speak.

Your imaginative treatment showcases this high-flying sail boat to perfection, Ginnie.

The Flying Dutchman escaping the tentacles of the Grabbing Willow.

Place, park, scene, dark
Silvery moon is shining through the trees
Cast, two, me, you
Summer kisses floating on the breeze
Act one, be done
Dialog, where would ya like to spoon?
My cue, with you
Underneath the silvery moon

for you 2 as you cross the channel - from Doris Day
Ginnie Hart: Awwwww. That is so very sweet and special, Louis. smile Thank you.
