Ginnie Hart: It was such a grand memory for both of us, Ingrid. I'm sure we'll be living off the meet-up for days to come. I have just finished two collages for the next 2 days, with a smattering of what we saw. We are very happy cammpers to have met both you amd Mike. Thank you for coming.

Wall to wall wood ;o) Pleased you were fortunate with the weather and glad you had a good time ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Every day was perfect, Mike. 5 days of sun in a row in England must be a record??!! grin It was so good to meet you, even if I never spent time talking to you (my bad!).

I love the tones you use in your photographs. Makes the objects really pop out, like I can just reach out and grab one of the klompen. Echt mooi.
Ginnie Hart: You're very sweet to say so, Cherise. Thank you kindly.
Excellent picture Ginnie to go with your arriving home! It was great to meet you, so pleased you had a fantastic honeymoon and you bought the good weather with you. smile
Ginnie Hart: 5 days of sun in a row must be a record for England, right, Linda?! grin It couldn't have been a better time, seriously. We are such happy campers. Thanks to you and Steve for coming!
Perfect title and verse for the shot and your return. I wish I could have attended on Saturday.
Ginnie Hart: I wish you could have been there, too, Mary. It really was a delightful time. You'll see 2 collages of people these next 2 days. Putting faces to names is so much fun. smile
So glad you enjoyed your honeymoon. You were lucky to catch the good weather in England as it's a bit hit and miss
Ginnie Hart: 5 days of sun in a row is probably a record for England, Janet, right?! grin We were delighted with it all.
Very Dutch indeed. Should these klompen not been put away upside down? In this way they'll fill up with rain smile
Glad you're back.
Ginnie Hart: You do have a point, Wim! I'm sure Astrid would have thought about that if they were hers! smile Thanks.

WELCOME HOME!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Marcie. It's always good to come back home but we did have a great time away. I just wish it could have been longer for Astrid's sake. She was back at work again today! (sigh)

Good to be home.Congrats again.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Albert. Yes, it's good to be home but it was also such a terrific time away.
Wooden shoes, neatly stored and put away until they are needed again. I'm very taken with the beauty of the wooden building, Ginnie. It appears to be rather new.

Looking forward to seeing your meet-up images. So glad y'all had such a great time.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Beverly. It was a wonderful time of putting faces with names. Tomorrow and Thursday I'll help you do the same. smile
A great image Ginnie. I'm glad you arrived back safely, you must both come back again some time it was such a great few hours in Stratford.
Ginnie Hart: It was all wonderful, Brian. Thank you for welcoming us so well to your country. We'll definitely have to do it again!

Love the shot Musketeer and so pleased you both enjoyed your honeymoon. What a hoot we had, looking forward to seeing you again in the not to distant future. smilesmile
Ginnie Hart: "Typically Dutch" is so soulful to me, Musketeer, as you know by now. Stuff like this warms my cockles. grin And yes, we will see each other before long and will simply pick up from where we last left off.
A super composition and toning Ginnie..All home safe and sound then..Glad you enjoyed it all..Maybe again one day.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Ron. It was so wonderful to meet you, even though we didn't spend much time talking. And even though you couldn't walk around with us, you were there, and that means the world to us both! Your picture will be up tomorrow (Thursday). smile

Cheers cordially LoLo
Ginnie Hart: I love all types of wood, too, LoLo. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. But your link did not take me to your site. In fact, it said it doesn't exist???
I hope you had a great time! Very cool shot; I like the wood and the wood and the wood smile Those shoes are really neat!

Such a pretty image, Ginnie. Glad you had a nice time. I was expecting it to be a longer trip. Must have been a whirlwind.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Sherri. It was 5 days and we did accomplish a lot. But we took Sunday off to rest and stay at home base, which helped. Our last day in Liverpool wasn't stressful, especially since we rode the Liverpool Wheel. It made it a good way to see the city in an overview kind of way before we got on the plane to fly home!
