trip to the windmill "De Vier Winden"
This past weekend, John and I went to the windmill "De Vier Winden."
"De Vier Winden" is Dutch for "The Four Winds"
Located in the Dutch town of Monster, it has been the site of various mills since 1311.
The mill still grinds wheat into flour
The previous mill burnt down in 1881 and the current mill was built the following year.
The original stone of the current mill is on display
The mill is open to the public every Saturday afternoon.
We bought ten kilograms of their whole wheat flour
Better get started baking!
