Hello Beth, that is a cool windmill. It is neat seeing one in Iowa. Have a happy day!
What a surprise that must be to unsuspecting drivers!

I'd love to step inside the windmill and climb the stairs to see the inner workings.
Hello, Beth!
The windmill is really beautiful!
But I may be partial, I have (very) far Danish ancestors. :)
Have a lovely day!

Beth, must be some Dutch folks in that area, seeing the windmill. It looks like one we photographed in Germany, just across the way from Amsterdam.

Excellent - you don't see too many of those; not outside Denmark, anyway.

Did you go inside? I so would love to see one in real life, from inside and the outside. I just love the looks of them.

Windmills are fun buildings. Not many around here, but I remember seeing one in Manitoba a few years ago. Great photos.

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what?

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.
