I am amazed about how you see what others would just walk past and not notice.

Lovely capture.
Ginnie Hart: I doubt if anyone walks by and does NOT notice this one, Brian, but you're kind nonetheless. Thank you.

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray...and I have no clue whatsroever about the flags. Wait. Astrid wrote in her comment: "To answer Ray's and Michael's question about the flags: Red White Blue is the Dutch flag and the others might be a sign of on what boat the admiral is. More about Maritime signs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_maritime_signal_flags "
That is so nice with the lovely colours. Like Ray, I was wondering about the flags.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. Astrid says "To answer Ray's and Michael's question about the flags: Red White Blue is the Dutch flag and the others might be a sign of on what boat the admiral is. More about Maritime signs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_maritime_signal_flags "

This is one of the finest gable stones I've seen. Love the play of words after explaining it to me smile.
Wonderful presentation.

Ginnie Hart: You can tell it's not that old, MLMA, but the date isn't in the database. It's one of the best, for sure. It was fun to think of the Christmas carol. smile And thanks for the explanation about the flags.
Great find and framing Ginnie... thank Astrid for the explanation about the flags....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter...and I will. smile
Excellent sub title!!! You're very clever!
I love the image and your presentation! These must be so wonderful to find!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I thought of that Christmas carol at the last minute last night. Astrid hears lots of American/English Christmas songs here in the Netherlands but that one was new to her (not very commercial??). So in case not everyone "got" the subtitle, I thought I needed to include the link. smile
Excellent Ginnie! I really like your presentation.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.

The Breton whom I am likes boats. I am thus very sensitive to this attractive display of magnificent sailboats
Ginnie Hart: Then I will declare this is just for you, Marie! smile

i saw 3 ships come sailing in on Christmas day on Christmas day!
Ginnie Hart: HA! And we could go on and on, all day, I'm sure. grin

Oh, I remember this gable stone in Verre - and I posted it some weeks ago on SC, too - your photo is wonderful accompanied by this lovely song!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Philine. I just went back to find your version, which I had totally forgotten about: http://philine.shutterchance.com/image/2014/11/07/boat-friday/. I love it when we both see the same things. In fact, the reason why we went to Veere was because of YOU. So, thank you. It's a darling harbor town.

Very neat and very Dutch Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. More Dutch you cannot get. smile

Yes, you are right, Ginnie - "a darling harbour town' and its former importance and richdom can still be recognised!
Ginnie Hart: So often you pave the way for us, Philine, so THANK YOU!
I saw three ships come sailing in!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Bill. smile

Oh very good; very seasonal. I like your presentation very much, too. I think Philine has posted these before?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan, and yes, Philine just reminded me of her posting, which I went and found here: http://philine.shutterchance.com/image/2014/11/07/boat-friday/. Her previous visit was the reason why we decided to stop there on our way home from Belgium.

Bien vu
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
Oh the Dutch have so many different ensigns!
Ginnie Hart: Just leave it to the Dutch, LC, as I love to say. smile
The boats look familiar to me. I think New Brunswick's coat of arms comes to mind. My favorite christmas song was featured. Thank you.
Ginnie Hart: I knew someone would know that song, Mary. smile Thank you.
Love this, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline!
Aren't they splendid. This is their second outing on SC for boat Friday and very nice to see them again. I like your thinking on the Christmas connection Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I just love this art form, Janet, as you can tell. Thanks for liking my "connection." smile

Your picture and border are very much Delft blue smile Taking a clue from Astrid - maybe the ships are one for each Stooge and flags indicate where the main Stooge is - or where they think he is.
Ginnie Hart: Believe it or not, Louis, I originally had the subtitle of "The Three Stooges" with the stooges crossed out and Graces added. smile

How lovely
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne.
tres belle présentation!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.
Good find... Nicely framed with the navy blue too.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn. That touch of Delft blue felt very Dutch to me. smile
A nice bit of decoration, well captured, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tom.
What a great find, just right for today and the carol, although I will admit it isn't one of my most favourite carols.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. Astrid said she had never even heard this carol...even though the Dutch hear American and English carols all the time now. I guess it's not one of the more popular ones.

Well that takes care of the Christmas card smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Could be a fun one, John. smile
nicely caught and well framed...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
that's a really neat Boat Firday, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ayush. As you probably know by now, I'm very find of gable stones that have boats in them. And there are a LOT! smile
