Delightful! Good composition here and the lighting is just right. I would love a pair of real wooden shoes, not the tourist kind. We have a kind of wooden sailing boat, very small and hard to tip, for teaching children, it is called a Sabot! (French for wooden shoe).

Thanks Nawitka. We also have that sailing boats in Holland and we call them 'piraat'. My sister and I also had a little boat when we were young, but that boat was al little bit greater, and had 2 sails, and is called a 'flits'. It is the smallest boat with 2 sails, I think. These wooden shoes were unfortunately for the tourists... It was in 'The Keukenhof' in Lisse. Very beautiful flowers there and.... these wooden shoes.
