Today on our Viking river cruise, we visited the windmills in the village of Kinderdijk, Netherlands. It’s pronounced “Kinderdike” with a long “i” and silent “j”. They were actually more interesting that I expected. We had a tour which explained the history of the windmills and we went inside one of the windmills. It was located in South Holland below Amsterdam and east of Rotterdam which is the largest port in Europe so we saw quite a few barges, ships, and tug boats in that area where several rivers come together. In the evening on our way north to Amsterdam, we had to go through some locks, which was interesting at night.
Click on the following Windmill photo to view the Kinderdijk photo gallery (about 16 photos) at my SmugMug photo web site.
The automatic slideshow displays each photo for 2 seconds with a 1 second fade transition. There are options for full-screen mode in the lower-right corner, and a pause button in the lower-left corner. There are also arrows on the left and right sides to move manually forward and backward through the photos.
