what a beautiful view the home owners have

looks very relaxing and i love the processing
Ginnie Hart: The 4 of us on our wee boat ride kept exclaiming about what it must be like to live there, Sherri! Thanks.

That's the life.
Ginnie Hart: Right! smile
Just kickin' back... Great capture, Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: More "laissez-faire" you cannot be, Elizabeth. smile
Not a bad life...I wonder who Riley was? smile
Ginnie Hart: Not bad at all, Frank. Peter's dog???

I'm trying to work out why this looks very Dutch. But it just does..
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, I know what you mean, Chris. I wouldn't expect to see this on one of your English rivers. smile

Oh yes, very relaxing - but not for me! A wonderful treatment!
Ginnie Hart: Very relaxing, indeed, Philine. We were in our electric-motor boat watching it go by. smile Bedankt.

It does not get much better on a hot day in the Netherlands, Ginnie. Great picture and I like your processing.
Ginnie Hart: We could have died and gone to heaven that day. Wait. But not before this upcoming trip to England!!! smile Bedankt.

Ah now as much s I would love a bigger boat with a gallery, this would be perfect way for a hot summer's afternoon with the feet dangling in.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly that, Alan. But probably no chance for a cream tea!

Très décontractés.
Ginnie Hart: Casual and lackadaisical. smile

I feel quite envious of him right now Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I can imagine why, Chad.
Que du bonheur ..très belle photo
Ginnie Hart: Taking it easy is something we all like to do from time to time, Claudine, isn't it! Merci.
that reminds me of the resort our RV is in, we almost bought a cabin on the water instead of an RV... this is a very relaxing picture!
Ginnie Hart: Looking at the houses along our river ride was half the fun of this outing, Elaine. I can imagine the fun of just watching what goes by!

Ginnie Hart: Lazy is as lazy does, Ayush. Bring it on. smile

It looks so cool - especially for during the recent heat waves.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Louis.
This looks like great fun!
Ginnie Hart: It does, indeed, Larry.
I love how relaxed he looks. Nicely done, Ma'am.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. He almost looks too relaxed for being the driver of the boat. HA!

What a beautiful day for boating and relaxing! The leg hanging over the edge really emphasizes this. This PoV makes the home look like it's floating on water. I hope the water doesn't get that close. smile
Ginnie Hart: The water does look awfully close to the house, Steven, but I doubt that it was. Just the perspective from where I was in our own boat on the water. But good observation!
Love how you've captured the wake the boat is leaving behind, Ginnie. Such a lovely serene image for boat Friday.
Ginnie Hart: The fun part was that he passed by our slower boat, so we had time to catch his wake. smile
Looks pretty laid back to me Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: More laid-back you cannot get, Bill...unless you're asleep, I suppose? smile
I like the picture very much but as I'm more or less a non-swimmer I wouldn't fancy a ride in one of these.
Ginnie Hart: But Brian...I'm sure everyone would come to your rescue immediately, if not sooner!!!
Very different from Astrid's men at work!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Tom. HA!
Very cool. I like the bleached out look.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

I bet it feels good with a foot in the water
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Lisl, but not because I tried it myself. smile
Oh, zalig met je pootje in het water !
En jij voer er achter ??
Heerlijke zomer hè ?
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed so, Marjolein. We were right behind them in our electric-motor boat, having fun on a hot day! Welcome back.

Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Olivier.
The perfect description! How fun does that look!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Robin. smile
