    I realize it is not a windmill but I didn't know where else to put this,... The next time I go to Holland, I want to see the Cruquius pumping station. When I lived in Holland, I past the pumping station a few times but didn't stop. My last visit to Holland, the pumping station was under restoration. I always felt it was a beautiful building.

    Well if you’d come to visit the indeed beautiful Cruqius pumping station, you might want to consider combining it with a visit to the Ir.D.F.Wouda pumping station in Lemmer (also in the Netherlands).
    It is the oldest still working (steam) pumping station in the world.
    Check https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ir._D.F._Woudagemaal
    Although I must admitt that the one in Cruqius is much more appealing.

    ...I don’t know why they call it Swift Current. The people there are neither!

    Just for the perspective...

    There’s plenty of these turbines over here, and more to come.

    But eventhough these turbines are really very impressive, I do prefer the oldschool windmills.
