On the road....

Tomorrow we will leave for a family visit to the Netherlands. Our youngest daughter and two grandchildren and other family and friends.
It is always on this time of the year we go. Our granddaughter has her birthday in October 1st, and we like to be there on that day.

The Netherlands, the land of the windmills, these are old ones a water mill and a wheat mill.
The Netherlands is flat country and always windy.
Nowadays they also build modern wind mills to get electricity.

See you again in a couple of weeks :-)

Hi Ati,
Thanks for the views of your homeland. I expect you miss it.

I love the flat lands, it means you can see forever or tomorrow which ever way you look at it, lol.

I hope you have a really lovely time and make the most of the break and enjoy your family. Tricia

Have a great holiday Ati.
Love the pictures of the windmills.
I wish I could be with my grandchildren on their birthdays, but they live in France.

We have the modern wind generators in Australia but I much prefer your old type, so beautiful.

We have one true windmill(not nearly as nice as your old ones) built as a home in the area I used to live and the road was often blocked by people who stopped and stared at it.
