The wonderful windmills of the Netherlands – things that fairy tales are made of and do not need words to appreciate.

    I do think of fairy tales whenever I see one of these majestic structures! That little boy with his finger in the dyke, especially! Mother read us folk tales from all the European countries (no computer to plunk us in front of at that time!) and I had images in my mind of all the sights and sounds of them. Your pictures here make the ones based in Holland come alive again for me! But I have never seen the inside of a windmill. Wonder what it’s like! Did you get to go in one of them?

    Here in Michigan, for those who can’t make the trip to the Netherlands, a working windmill is located in Holland Mi. It was brought over and restored about 50 yrs ago. Of course it’s a tourist attraction but sits by downtown in a park. Tulip time in May is when it’s really beautiful there.
    No, I don’t work for the chamber of commerce! Happy New year Judy and all…..
    Me and fitbit start our “relationship” tomorrow.

    I’m glad they still have some functioning mills. Have your ever seen the one in Orleans, MA built in 1720? It was restored in the 1980s.
    Happy New Year, Judy!

  11. How beautiful! There is something magical about windmills in general, and to see a row of them all lined up like that is awesome. The Netherlands is definitely on my very long travel list!! Here is to more doors in 2016!
