Jo’s Monday Walk2017-Wk-04
Up bright and early.
Thought this was supposed to be a holiday??
On our way to Amsterdam.
About and hour or so into our journey
we stopped for morning coffee and munchies at…
La Place…a road house making a Euro, or two,
from thirsty and hungry tourists
La Place…sounds very French and yet we were
either in Belgium or the Netherlands.
I found this very confusing.
Wherever we were there was oodles to munch on
with our morning coffee, if one so desired.
Some of the munchies were good for the waistline…
others, I fear not so good.
In Australia and other parts of the world these
are used to generate electricity.
The wind farm near our farm still holds the title of
the largest in the Southern Hemisphere with
140 windmills spread over 5,500 Ha (13,591 acres or 21.24 square miles).
With so many of these mills dotted along our way
I wondered if they were generating electricity
or drawing water from the ground.
This was the only traditional Dutch windmill sighted.
Luckily we were on the ‘right’ side of the coach
to capture a shot or two as we passed by.
We finally arrived in Amsterdam, which
could also be known as ‘bicycle city’.
I have never seen so many bicycles in one place
More next week.
