Kinderdijk Netherlands 2013

As we get closer to the coast we pass into the Netherlands.  The land is flat and green.  The river is wide.  Kinderdijk is a World Heritage Site where people still live in and operate the windmills as they did originally.  They were used to pump water out of areas where land was being reclaimed from the sea.

Pretty tight living quarters inside

All wood mechanics inside

A little intimidating to stand right under the sails.

Yes they still were wooden shoes.  not so happy about the picture.
