Based on that famous Dutchland "Boy and The Dyke" legend...
Bill Phillips: Which was made up by an American

I am so glad we came in time and saved the City, you should see the prints that were left in the brick, her hands-prints are still there.
grin... the boy and the dyke, I heard that story for the first time when I was in the USA in 1975.... very unknown to me back then and a lot of Dutch people. It is an American tale. We do have a monument now... just for tourists

Bill Phillips: I remember you telling us that once, I think you said the author had never even been to the Netherlands!
Ginnie likes to be a PART of everything... everything is energy, she's just feeling the love from the old stones- and giving some back!
Bill Phillips: She gets involved E and it is great to see her enjoying our history

Just imagine if it fell into the sea!
Bill Phillips: That would be quite something as it is about 70 miles from Worcester to the nearest beach
I can attest to the fact it didn't budge an inch, Bill. smile What a fun memory for us. I'd love to know how many hundreds of thousands of hands have left their imprint there over the years!
Bill Phillips: It had stood for centuries Ginnie, one more push wasn't going to topple it grin

Look at Ginnie's facial expression - I can feel the rough, red stone - sometimes it brings luck to touch things like this one.
Bill Phillips: It is touching history Philine

Is this the Wailing Wall? Why does Astrid have a No parking sign attached to her head?
Bill Phillips: If you had to live in Worcester you'd be wailing

I don't know these people come over here trying to push our historical monuments down....
Bill Phillips: They need lessons in Britishness?

There's a lot of grit and determination here, Bill
Bill Phillips: She was getting nowhere though

It is like those pictures of people's propping up the leaning tower of Pisa Bill.
Bill Phillips: this isn't leaning

I think she's trying to find a secret trap door
Bill Phillips: Too much watching Harry Potter perhaps
What a serious look on Ginnie's face. Other than the smile on Astrid, I would think she is under arrest and been told to 'spread 'em'.
Bill Phillips: This is England Mary, we don't do things like that
A moment of History, I take it! nice one Bill
Bill Phillips: Something like that grin

My first thought is also that she has been living too long in Holland and thinks she is inspecting a dyke, while Astrid tries to remind her that not everything emanating from the US about Holland is the truth.
Second thought is that she is at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem - I mean, just look at her facial expression.
Bill Phillips: Perhaps she just doesn't like sandstone
Up to your usual high standard I see.
Bill Phillips: Naturally.
Ginnie is making a real effort here! Fine capture Bill.
Bill Phillips: Grim determination Richard

Great shot of the two of them
Bill Phillips: They are a delight to be with

If i push 1 of these stones ...a trap door opens ....great to put faces to names smile
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Shane. I hope we will get to meet you one of these days
Nice try, but I think you'll find it's the stone next to that one that unlocks the portal.
Clearly, she's not afraid to tackle a big job!
