Coo on vacation...
Ginnie Hart: Astrid says it's either going to the vet or is being sold from one farmer to another. I think it's having a joy ride. smile
it's a wonderful bright sunny day for a ride in the country along the canal Ginnie...

does VEEVERVOER also mean Beware of Falling Poop!
....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: This was on that deligtfully warm day on November 1, Peter. We had so much fun driving around that day. And I see you have a good imagination for the Dutch language. HA!

wow that's some green green grass of home! nice picture, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. And this was taken on November 1st, the warmest November 1 in Dutch recorded history (since 1901). smile
I guess there are no passing lanes there smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! You noticed, Michael! Just little turnouts here-n-there, that's all. smile
One has to be patient and ffollow it Ginnie! Fine capture.
Ginnie Hart: Lucky for us, it finally turned off to the left while we keep driving through. smile Thanks.

I see cows are beginning to feature in quite a few of your pictures, Ginnie, but I bet you haven't found one on a weather vane
Ginnie Hart: Well, LOL, Lisl. Suddenly cows ARE popping up all over, aren't they. But guess what! I have found several cow weathervanes and can even tell you where they are on the road to our favorite pannenkoeken restaurant. I'll make sure you see them when you come next year. smile

Great picture considering the bright sun we had. For the ones that wonder, this is a two lane street smile
There are some places where passing is possible. Wonder if the cow really enjoys the ride...
Ginnie Hart: I just LOVE these one-lane roads for two-way traffic out in the polder, MLMA. You always know how to pull off to let someone go by, as well as to pass the shower vehicles. Usually we just wait till they turn left or right, which they invariably do. I love this life!

Yes, more Dutch cannot be - het polderlandschap - I love your photo -each detail!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. I just LOVE this part of the Netherlands!

Fantastic. I like the compostion and distributions of the elements. Have a nice week
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Oscar. A great week to you, too.

A typical sight I'm sure Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Or at least something similar, Chris, for sure. I never know what I'm going to see out in the polder. smile
Off and going slow! Well what's the rush anyway? smile
Ginnie Hart: No rush for us today, Bill, which feels nice on our Mondays. Astrid was just reminding me this morning that even though it's now been a year since she's had Mondays off, it still surprises her every week.

The trees either side of the road is my thoughts of typical Dutch and norther France countryside. Let's hope the cow if just off to a different field and not off to the abbatoir sad
Ginnie Hart: More Dutch you cannot get, Alan, indeed. And yes, let's hope the cow is off to greener pastures!

Ginnie Hart: A world traveler, maybe, JP? grin
I always think animals should lie down to make a more comfortable trip. One of the many things my brain wonders about. Great picture with that gorgeous green grass.
Ginnie Hart: You'd think, Mary, but maybe they want to see what's going on? I guess balancing on 4 legs is easier than on two? HA! It was a glorious day on Novemeber 1, not too long ago.

Oh the tidiness of the Netherlandisch polder, I remember it well Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I imagine you do, Chad. I'm still enchanted by it!
Love the bright light, in your charming photo, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile
plenty of room to stretch their legs, by the looks of it. interesting shot, Ginnie. livestock transportation elsewhere could be gut wrenching.
Ginnie Hart: It does seem like the Life of Riley in comparison to the alternative, Ayush. smile
Oh the polder....love!
Ginnie Hart: You know this place first hand, Robin, and know why it fills me up with so much joy! smile
extra!!! &amitiés
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, JP, isn't it. smile
I do like the line of trees either side of the road in particular.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Brian. More Dutch you cannot get!

La lumière est très belle sur cette campagne et le camion.
Ginnie Hart: It was a glorious day to be out in the Dutch polder, Marie. Thanks.
Not much room for anyone else on the road!
Ginnie Hart: You'd be surprised how everyone manages to get around on these roads, Tom, both coming and going. smile

Ta photo est très lumineuse.
Ginnie Hart: It was a delightful, sunshiny day, Sabrina, out in the Dutch polder! smile
Don't tailgate me or you might get pooped on !! ( this once happened to Elaine while walking through Bakewell in Derbyshire!)
Ginnie Hart: Uh-Oh. A word to the wise, then, Martin. Thanks! grin

The tractor is poldering along with its cow. It is an amazing day for November.
Ginnie Hart: November quickly turned to its "normal" temps, Louis, but on that day it really was an amazing day for November!
This works well the only distraction is the lamp post.
Ginnie Hart: Long ago I had to accept the lampposts out in the Dutch polder, John, kinda like the construction cranes elsewhere. It is as it is, as we photographers know. (sigh)
Great to whip out your camera when stuck behind this one! Great shot!!
Ginnie Hart: I always try to have my camera at the ready, Elizabeth. Astrid is such a good sport, too. smile

What a great scene .... the beautiful greens, and sunlight setting this image are what really attracts my eye. *sigh*
Ginnie Hart: I know, Emily. It steals my heart every time we're out in the polder! Thanks.
