This is a fabulous view. I love the reflections and the mist/fog that adds to this wonderful picture. When we arrived these were still floating and after lunch we came into this scene.....
Ginnie Hart: It tickles me that our English friends don't get why this is magical to us, but it is. At my age now I don't think I'll ever get used to it!
Me neither, Ginnie!
This is a gorgeous shot - I love the mist - very atmospheric!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. We don't see this in America, do we! Nor in the Netherlands.

Belle ambiance sur ce petit port.
Ginnie Hart: It delighted me to no end, Martine. Merci.
A very fine place Ginnie, great to see a photograph so soon.
Ginnie Hart: I knew the minute I saw it that I'd put it up for today, Chad. smile

This has a moody, watchful feel about it, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Exactly the kind of feel I like, Lisl. As you can tell, it did not bother us at all that the sun was not always shining!

Oh wow! I love the atmosphere here. The beached boats are a lovely sight to see. You certainly have to plan your trips out;no impulse sailing here.
Ginnie Hart: I never thought about that, Alan...needing to plan your trips in and out based on the tides. WOW!

I love the misty atmosphere!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Philine. That's why I never worry about when it's not sunny outside!
I never knew it was anything unusual to have beached boats grin Love this picture. Who needs sunshine for good pictures?
Ginnie Hart: Pauline couldn't believe we loved these scenes so much, Bill. She didn't get it! But when you don't grow up with them, they really are most unusual. Astrid didn't grow up with them either, so she and I were on the same page.

je garde un bon souvenir de cet endroit même si le brouillard était déjà  là  quand je suis passé
JP
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, JP. The memory is always alive for us.

it's neat to see them held up like that... when we had our boat, man the hull was sooo tall we would have just 'keeled over' lol thanks for sharing sister
Ginnie Hart: So, is that where the term comes from, "keeled over?" It makes perfect sense now, if so!

You have made a right artwork from this scene, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray.
That is something we do not see here.

I took a picture for you last Sunday, Ginnie. My son and I beached the boat (on purpose) and after pushing off again, he became my private gondolier, only missing a hat and fancier boat.
Ginnie Hart: So we're not the only ones who don't see this! You can understand, then, why it is so special. I hope you plan to show me the pic your took last Sunday??? Please?!
the masts look really tall in this view, Ginnie. love the mist.
Ginnie Hart: They looked tall to me, too, Ayush. And, yes, the mist is just wonderful for me in these harbor views.
J'aime ces belles ambiances brumeuses et la Cornouaille anglaise est magnifique
Ginnie Hart: I so agree with you, Marie. Merci.
i agree with you Ginnie... being landlocked i seldom get the chance to wonder along the shore at low tide... i love the way that you framed this shot....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It's one of the things I most look forward to in England, Peter, whenever we get the chance to be on the coast. Thanks.
The weather is so welcoming!

What a perfect day to solve a murder mystery!? wink

Like a scene from an Agatha Christie novel, right? Oh yes, The Regatta Mystery! Don't you agree with me, Agent Hart?
Ginnie Hart: Agent Hart agrees with you, LC. Often these overcast days are more enthralling than the sunny days, aren't they!
Some nice pops of colour on a grey day!
Ginnie Hart: My kind of day and place, Tom!
Absolutely fabulous. The sharpness backed by that beautiful mist is wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. This was heaven for me!
superbe ambiance brumeuse!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
I think this is a terrific shot Ginnie, the dullness goes with the weather we were having along the coast in Dorset while you were over here.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. As you know, the rainy weather does NOT bother me in the least when I can see such places as this. I was in heaven!
I totally agree! I'll never either!
Ginnie Hart: We're on the same page, Robin!
