Velkommen Danish Windmill, Elkhorn, Iowa




"Velkommen Danish Windmill, Elkhorn, Iowa". 1848. Just amazing architecture. I will be sharing the mini church that was on the property very soon on my other blog "Hike2Forty and beyond", hope you will stay tuned in for that, super cute & oh so tiny. Beth ( :

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.

I didn't know the Danes also had a thing for windmills.

really neat!
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 Day!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
