    People tend to mix up a windTURBINE with a windmill. This is a windmill, De Vlijt in Diever village, Drenthe Province, The Netherlands during the 33 national heritage days this weekend. And my 35yrs young Honda RD01 XLV750R. FB_IMG_1568493255893.jpg

    E02880B6-72A3-4DF5-A6E9-A62E334FB88B.jpeg I built this windmill on our farm 2 years ago. The tower came from Denver, CO and the rest from San Angelo, TX. The instructions pretty much were just a photo of a windmill. It took a lot of cussing, head scratching and taking pieces apart to build it. Always wanted a windmill and it finally happened. We admire it every morning from the front porch while having coffee.

    Today, taking Mighty White out for a spin. This is actually a watermill, used for watermanagement (in this specific case: irrigation) 20191024_141352.jpg
