Windmill Friday

 

It was a rainy-misty day at Kinderdijk, NL, this week with g'son Nicholas.

He called it "sacred."  A boy after my own heart.

What a great adventure for him. That is a lovely shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I plan to make a photo book of these two trips so that he'll never forget it!

A fabulous shot smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry.
isn't it wonderful to capture your grandson in such a beautiful place Ginnie...
it was a perfect misty day....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I couldn't have asked for a better mood, Peter. He didn't seem to mind at all! Thanks.
A wonderful photo, Ginnie! And yes - he does seem to follow after you, he's no doubt a charming, insightful, "old" soul!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. His mom says he is indeed an old soul, which I quite like!

sweetie you commented on my site and missed the ONE post that i put up just for you and Astrid to dance to lol silly billy, go back! oh and nice shot!!! it does look like a sacred path to walk, is that Nicholas walking it?
Ginnie Hart: I didn't miss any post, Elaine, but only commented on the last two. I'll have to go back and see which one you're talking about. Thanks!

And, yes, that's Nicholas walking the sacred path! smile

A nice image Ginnie: bet he loved being with you two!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. Nicholas does seem to be enjoying himself immensely. That makes Astrid and me both feel good. smile
Lovely picture and great that he is having a good time with you.

It is so good when two generations (with a gap, too) can enjoy he same things so well, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Lisl. You totally understand! Thank you.

Great picture. The misty rain gave a total different feel to the place and it is beautiful no matter what the weather is....
Great memories to keep.
Ginnie Hart: YES YES YES. I think he may always have this view of Kinderdijk in his mind's eye. I like that.

What a great shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray.
Great photo Ginnie, and good to see a picture of g'son. I bet he is having the time of his life. All that slag room and stuff.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad, and HA! All that slagroom, indeed!!! grin

From what I've seen elsewhere, you've certainly given him a great tour of Dutchlandshire. I bet he loved the windmills (or should I call them wind pumps?) .
Ginnie Hart: I don't think he'll ever forget what he's seen thus far, Alan, and he's just now at the midway point! I'm loving it for him.
He seems to live a wonderful adventure Ginnie! Superb image.
Ginnie Hart: At age 15, I would say this is a biggie, Richard. He's lucky he has a grandma who lives overseas. smile

Un cadrage extra

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP.
The same boy that you danced with in your photo somewhere on this site? I vaguely remember that!

Now he's a big boy!
Ginnie Hart: One and the same, LC! He is now almost exactly my same height!
I love this shot and hope you include it in his book.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary, and absolutely!

Great shot, Ginnie. It looks very peaceful.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline. Peaceful is a good word for this soulful place.
Lovely to see him enjoying windmill land Ginnie. Yes he definitely takes after you
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Janet, isn't it! And thank you.

Frame this one!!!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, Sue. THANK YOU. That means the world to me!
beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin.
Sounds to me as if your'e all having a good time despite the weather. He must have been overawed to see this lot, I guess there's nothing quite like it in the States.
Ginnie Hart: Nothing like it at all in the States...or maybe anywhere, Brian?!

At last you have a kinder in a Kinderdijk shot. That gull intrigues me - actually quite sharp.
Ginnie Hart: At last, indeed, Louis!

No 'kind', already a young man - what a wonderful time for you all to enjoy together the Dutch poldershap - and he is likely to understand why you love this country so mauch!
Ginnie Hart: His voice is changing, Philine, so, yes, he's becoming a young man, indeed. I do think he is learning to see why G'ma loves it here so much!
he is on his way exploring this place, Ginnie. fine shot
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. He really liked Kinderdijk and felt the sacredness of the place!
