                        No fear that the ferryman won't hear that donging! Hey, bags I ring it if he's over the other side.

                        OK, I've printed out the map of Loevstein Castle and must go over your great tour again. You've made it so very interesting, Thijs. Thank you.

                            What are you on about, man??? If, by city girl, you are referring to me then I may have been born a Londoner, but it's 55 years since I have lived there. Ever since I've been in the country. Way back in the late 50's/early 60's I was teaching at a small school near the village of Beaulieu, in the New Forest, Hampshire and we were surrounded by trees, birds, ponies and cattle. In the New Forest the latter two have equal rights with humans to roam where they will (unless you fence off your property securely), even on the roads. Sometimes someone may have left our top gate open and the cows would get in and trample the flowerbeds. I then used to take some of my pupils and we would gently herd them back down the drive. My room was in a wooden hut in the garden (I exchanged it with the new housekeeper who was terrified at the sound of scraping noises under the hut at night. She went into the house.) I loved my room, investigated the scraping noises and found hedgehogs! The fence was about 3 metres away from my window, and sometimes I would find a cow or pony leaning over, ready for a chat.
                            It was an enchanted world for me, more or less straight from London, and one I'll never forget.

                              looks like fun,the cattle at you window,the first thing in the morning ,is to wash myself,by a cow licking my face.
                              i wish that we had the money for buying a little farm,with some ponies,goats,ckickens and more of the small kind of animals.

                                Have that tug in mind in particular. Like its old classic design...
                                the quote is from page 1
                                i was at the tug today,the lady owner was sanding the steeringhouse.
                                she told me that the tug is build in 1938, engine power in 200hp and is a old navy tug from Den Helder.
                                the first owner didn't want her anymore after the war,the navy take her over and the last years she was abandoned from the navy,not enough power.
                                the coupple lived now on her for a few months a year,and sometimes they sail with her,not that much,the engine has no electical starter.
                                she have to be started with airpower,which the lady can't do,just het man can menage it. they have buyed her on a auction of govermend proberties,and aldo they ain't the highest bidder,the navy had sold her to them ,because of they want not rebuild her,but leaves her as she is,while other bidders where planning to rebuild her as a pusher or other

                                images wil come,but other wise i will forget the info,probally a age problem.
