awwwww say hi to Nicholas from all your friends in my 3 heads hahahaha, neat stature, and i like the way you framed the pic, hope y'all are having an AWESOME time!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine, and I'll say HI to him, of course. We're having a blast...trying to make every other day an easy day (or we'll never make it, HA!).
Wonderful! I know you are just eating up every minute!!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Robin. Today we go to Kinderdijk, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to show him the places that are important to me/us.

This is an interesting sculpture, Ginnie.

There are a lot of icons in Thailand with 4 faces.
Ginnie Hart: I always look twice when I see something like this, Ray. And, yes, I'm sure you could show us many such icons from where you live!
No doubt! And this great shot shows off the term "Short of Eyes" nicely! smile
Ginnie Hart: It's one of my favorite Dutch phrases, Elizabeth. I love that I found an image to match it. HA! Thank you.

I have seen sculptures like this before and they are so fascinating. Short of eyes is the right expression to use with Nicholas.... it helps that we take pictures as well wink
Great pictures love the symmetry in it.
Ginnie Hart: I'm glad we're taking it easy every other day, to give him a chance to assimilate it all. I love that he keeps talking about the air and how much he loves it here. smile
His head is like a cartoon character looking every which way.
Ginnie Hart: Every which way but loose! grin

A guardian, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Lisl.
Well, you've gotta bring him to England to see more. wink He has to hear more to, you've gotta admit English accent sounds better than Dutch accent. wink
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. I'll be glad if we can make it through the Dutch part before we tackle anything else. grin

All seeing. Now probably we would have a CCTV camera in its place (I sincerely hope not!)
Ginnie Hart: Hopefully they'll never have to resort to that there, Alan!
Three faces in one...Very nicely captured Ginnie! I bet Nicholas was fascinated.
Ginnie Hart: This was from when we were in England, Richard, so Nicholas hasn't see this. I'm just showing it to make a point! HA!

Lovely shot, Ginnie. Have a great time with Nicholas.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline. We're having a blast so far, as you can see on FB.
I like this turning head and it is perfect for your famed dutch saying. Reminds me of driving and looking each way before proceeding.
Ginnie Hart: Perfect analogy, Mary. Indeed. Thanks.
I have no doubt you are rushing him off his feet Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: We're trying to have a very easy day in between longer days, Bill, pacing ourselves, you know. smile Tomorrow we go to Amsterdam, which will be a looooong day. So today we're only doing Kinderdijk and the pannenkoeken restaurant!
This is most unusual isn't it, but very cleverly designed. I envy you today's outing, somewhere I'd love to go.
Ginnie Hart: I thought this was appropriate for the occasion, Brian! smile We had a misty afternoon at Kinderdijk but still had a great time. Totally worth it!
I expect he feels a bit like this Ginnie, having seen your posts on FB.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Janet. I think he's having the time of his life...but seems to be getting more tired faster than the rest of us. HA!
It definitely conveys a sense of movement Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chad. I do a double-take every time I look at it. smile

Great shot, to make the point. It could be a nice visit, with two doting grandma's. Just let him come up for a breather, every few hours smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! We're making sure every other day is easy for US, Louis. On those days he gets to sleep in till noon!!! Today is a long day, though...to Amsterdam!
Good close up, Ginnie ...I have got one like this coming up soon
Ginnie Hart: Gotta love these fellas, Richard. There were so many of them all over the cathedral. I'll be eager to see your take! Thanks.

Which way to turn? I sometimes feel just like that!
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Bonnie!!! smile
