Nothing slipshod, all shipshape, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Lisl! smile
This has seen some use in its time Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeedy, Bill, which is probably why it's in the museum!

This could be a photo by Astrid - but I know that you, too, are interested and an expert in these useful things -a very fine photo!
Ginnie Hart: Astrid knows all about this kind of rigging, Philine, indeed. I've learned to respect everything about it. Thank you.

Another of life's picturesque mysteries
Ginnie Hart: All with its own rhyme and reason, I'm sure, Chris.
You have to know your ropes Ginnie, hope you are getting over the time diff.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chad, your ropes and everything else. HA! The only thing I'm getting used to is the 5-hour difference this week between us and the eastern side of America...until their clocks change on Sunday and wek to 6 hours difference. Then it'll all seem quite "normal."

They did a great job with keeping these standing- and running rigging in place, very important on a boat. Live the crisp colours. A wonderful picture, and we had a great time at the museum.
Ginnie Hart: It was totally worth going back for the indoors part of this fabulous place, MLMA. Thank you.

Good to see proper construction materials used for a boat. I like the differentc olours and textures here.
Ginnie Hart: This is probably all older than dirt, Alan, and so wonderful to see. Thank you.
One had to know how to use all these ropes... Superb image Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeedy, Richard. Thank you.
I am admiring the edging on the sail. It is very fancy.
Ginnie Hart: That part is what I call sailsmanship, Mary. grin
tres belle image!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
I like the warm wood colours the ropes and the stitched canvas, a delightful composition.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. It was all very pleasing to me as well.
Welcome home!!!
Ginnie Hart: THANK YOU, dear Robin. It's always good to come back to what I truly call H O M E.
Nice detail for Boat Friday Ginnie. Love the colours

JP
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP.
Some boats have so many ropes on them I often wonder if anybody really knows what they all do.
Ginnie Hart: I know someone (who happens to live with me!) who knows everything about these ropes, Brian. smile
i would be clueless how to make any of it work, Ginnie. but a great photo opportunity
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Ayush, but Astrid is one who knows all about everything here. A great photo-op (for me!), indeed.
No doubt someone knows what they all do! smile
Ginnie Hart: I live with someone who does, Tom. smile

A still life of wood and rope.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe it's because Astrid is familiar with everything here that this fascinates me so much, Louis.

Fascinating!!

smile
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Cherry. smile
I love your composition - the rigging looks staged just for you!
Ginnie Hart: All the ships were inside a huge room, Elizabeth, with lights here and there showcasing certain spots. It WAS staged but felt so cozy and fun.

Great detail, Ginnie, I love everything about it. The colours, the shapes and it starts to dawn on me that your boat Fridays belong to my favourites! HA. smile
