Yeah for the weekend. I have it off! Nice shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Mary. Have a great one! Thanks.
I wonder what that lady is saying. "Faster, faster!" perhaps? smile
Ginnie Hart: I wonder, too, Larry. He sure seems nonchalant about the whole thing.

"Are you sure you know how to drive this thing? Or...are you just saying that to try to impress me?"
Ginnie Hart: Exactly. He did have an obstacle course (other boats) to navigate, Ray, as I recall.

Awww, I want to do that. They seem to be having so much fun especially the one in front of the tiny boat.

Nice candid shot!
Ginnie Hart: Just exactly the fun thing to do on a nice weekend, Richa. smile Thanks.
I have today an all of next week off!! Love this picture Ginnie!

LOL @ Ray, I once saw two boats hit each other....
This is a wonderful picture to 'enter' the weekend, the temperatures are finally reaching 'normal'.
Een prettig weekend smile
Love the colours.
Ginnie Hart: Inderdaad, Astrid! Eindelijk. By the afternoon the temps are above 60 F and that's very welcome. smile It's been a long...and beautiful spring, actually. Hartstikke bedankt.
Now that looks like a lot of fun. Great mood here, and the repetition in the waves is very nice.
Ginnie Hart: That marina was hopping when we were there a couple weekends ago, Mark. So much fun. Thanks.
What a refreshing shot. Makes me want to get wet this weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Just do it, Odd. smile Thanks.
that looks like a nice boat ride, i normally don't like riding in boats like that coz they bang up and down on tiny waves and hurt my back, nice shot tho!!!
Ginnie Hart: Maybe if they go slow enough it wouldn't be so bad, Elaine? Have a good weekend!

Hoorn - now you have been close to the in-law family seat. In fact where wifey went to high school.

I think she is back seat driving from the front.
Ginnie Hart: A friend in Amsterdam said she always took her guests to Hoorn as THE spot to show off The Netherlands. It's definitely a beauty, Louis. Who would ever want to leave??
A great way to spend these hot days!
Ginnie Hart: Precies, Wim. smile
"Don't you dare", I imagine her saying.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly...or something like that. smile
Oh I would love to sahre this moment ! This kind of situation makes me feel... free ! Have a great week-end Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: We're getting into that time of the year, Flo...definitely! Merci.
Quite a nice and refreshing shot with today's heat!
Ginnie Hart: You must be warmer than we are, Richard, but each day the temps are definitely rising. Merci.

Splendid this shot, a good time relaxing. I think he saw you and it did not seem to be happy !!!!! lollll .... Beautiful day and WE Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I was pretty far away, Tede, but I did wonder if he saw me or was just trying to navigate the harbor. Merci.

Ginnie Hart: HA! And who cares what happens to the boat, right, Rian! smile Thanks.
This looks relaxing..My weekends seem like every other day of the week now Ginnie...Nice picture and toning.
Ginnie Hart: Since Astrid works Mon - Fri, Ron, I 'feel' the weekend with her. Now that I'm in school, I especially feel it! smile Thanks.
One way of spending the time I suppose although I am not a boat person, but this is very well caught Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: As long as I can be protected from the sun, Brian, I love boats. smile Thanks.
Hope he doesn't hit anything, otherwise she's straight into the water!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Tom. smile

Ginnie Hart: With so much water inside and outside this small country, Virginia, it's hard not to include water in one's weekend. smile Thanks.
Great snippet of life on the river. Lovely shot Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, George. The thing about The Netherlands is that everywhere you go there will always be water. I love it.
