SH6 : Belgrove - Opposit The Pub

This is on the other side of the road from the pub from yesterday. I have no idea whose windmill this is, or what it does, but just possibly it's producing small amounts of electricity for this farm, or somebody near by.

  1. Windmills are wonderful symbols of rural America, but I don't see too many anymore.

  3. IIn the western US, Windmills have historically been used to turn a mechanical pump to fill cattle troughs with water. I always have loved the sound of an old running windmill.

    When we were kids driving across country, we had a game called count the windmills. You got one point for a windmill on you side of the road, 2 points if it was spinning. If you noticed a broken windmill on your opponent’s side of the road, they lost a point.

    While I don’t know if New Zealand celebrates Thanksgiving the same as we do, I wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving in any case. Thanks for all the kind words you have posted at my site over the past few months!

  5. It's a pretty little scene, actually. There's something warm and homey about a windmill.

  6. Thank you, friends, for visiting and commenting. I'm come to think of it, I'm not sure what this particular windmill does. Ben has one more from SH6. (He's in a meeting in Wellington today.)

  9. Thank you every one.

    Bill,I'm now thinking that is the purpose of the windmill because this place is a paddock. So what you describe is more making sense.

  10. Not only in the American West, also on the Eastern Shore, Maryland, windmills are used the way Ben decribes. I loved seeing them near the old homesteads, standing there like lonely sentinels of things past.

  11. Thank you for comment, Merisi.
    About how you see the windmill, I have to agree with you. Even I'm not really familiar with how it is actually used (or using).
