I love this statue. 'De Redding' 'The Rescue'. I found this link, Katwijk has a row of 15 statues at the boulevard.
Great treatment here.

A wonderful example of outdoor art.

Happy big 7-0, see you next week!
Ginnie Hart: You would love that beach, Chris, with its 15 statues. This one really caught my eye because of Boat Friday, of course!

Looking forward to seeing you next week, yes. And thanks for taking care of Little Sis those first 2 days when Lisl and I are gone!
Many happy returns to you Ginnie! Have a great day and enjoy your stay with Lisl.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Richard. This may be the happiest birthday of my life thus far! smile

Is this really a ship? My allerbest wishes to you, dear Ginnie, and remain as you are and enjoy your special day with Astrid in your lief Nederland and then in England with Lisl, Chris ... I hope that my birthday card has arrived in time - we have a postal strike here.
Ginnie Hart: It's actually a rescue boat, Philine, which counts for Boat Friday, yes?! smile Thank you for your birthday wishes...and the card that will surely arrive by tomorrow...or by Monday or Tuesday when Astrid can bring it to England with her. I'll be celebrating my birthday all next week, too. smile

A lifeboat monument? Happy Birthday, Ginnie - have a great day!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Tom. Well deserved, I'm sure. And thanks!
I can feel your excitement - right down to your toes. I wish you the happiest birthday, Ginnie. Are you old enough to wear purple now?
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think I've been old enough to wear purple for a long time now, Mary, but definitely now going forward! Sounds like royalty to me. grin
Happy B-day, G!
Wow, a new chapter. wink
Have you planned what you're gonna see in Cornwall?
You must try their proper cream tea. wink
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, LC, everything is being planned by my friends over there, including the one who lives in Cornwall. They know what I like, so I trust them. But the "proper" cream tea? I'll have to make sure I mention it!!!

Love the sculpture, Ginnie.
Happy birthday for tomorrow.
Re LC - yes I have thought that you must try a cream tea. We'll find somewhere on our travels for one.
Can't wait for you to arrive with Lisl on Tuesday.
Travel safely my friend.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline, and oh, how fun. I'd love a good cream tea while I'm with you!!!

Happy birthday for tomorrow! I'm sure you'll have a lovely time in merry old England with Lisl. if you fancy some (more) male company, I'm due a day off and it would be lovely to meet up somewhere again. I'm not sure about this ship,, though.. I'll think I'll pass and fly instead.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan, and make sure you contact Chris and/or Lisl on connecting up. We're all in their care and scheduling. It would be great to see you, if possible.

I think one of the rowers got a fright - something dripped against the base of the monument.

Congratulations on the birthday and enjoy the birthday gift.
Ginnie Hart: I noticed that, too, Louis. HA! Thanks for the birthday congrats. It's a good milestone! smile
