Bicycling around Nijmegen in eastern Holland we came upon a windmill atop a little hill with vanes flying. We had to stop and take a look. The proprietor was very friendly and encouraged us to climb the stairs and look around.  

 

It is very good wind today, he said. The very ground it stood upon shivered from the power it harnessed. 

  

  

He said that this is one of ten such wind mills still operating and grinding flour in Holland. There is a little store where one can buy the various flours produced here – all eco/organically grown of course.
