Windmills Netherlands

A windmill is a mill that converts the energy of wind into rotational energy by means of vanes called sails or blades. Centuries ago, windmills usually were used to mill grain, pump water, or both. Thus they often were gristmills, windpumps, or both.The majority of modern windmills take the form of wind turbines used to generate electricity, or windpumps used to pump water, either for land drainage or to extract groundwater.

Windmills along the Zaanseschans canal - a top tourist spot in the Netherlands and within a kilometer of where my in-laws lived before they migrated to Australia.
