A Windmill in Australia!
We arrived back to Atlanta from Australia this past Saturday and fly to Amsterdam today! So, how about this nice segue...a windmill from Australia!This Windmill (without sails!) is Brisbane's oldest structure, as well as Queensland's. It was built by convicts in 1828 when it was brought over to Australia from England by a soldier.
It originally had sails but because the soldier was not an engineer (as the story goes), he couldn't get them to continue to work properly. So he had the convicts tread the mill by hand.
I know of one Dutch woman who could have helped him figure out the sails!
