De Blesse

Today I decided to try biking to the nearest windmill, which appears to be at De Blesse, about six kilometers away. I’m proud to say I made it all the way and back, and solo to boot, though I have a feeling that getting out of bed tomorrow may be interesting.

This is a grain mill, and the local coop store is still right behind it. I really want to see an old mill that pumps/pumped water.

The good news: a more than adequate grocery store an easy bike ride away. We shouldn’t have to go on the bus for groceries again unless we want to. Food prices in the Netherlands, by the way, aren’t bad at all. Really not more expensive than what we’re used to at home.

Could this house possibly be cuter? Out in the country with a farm behind it.
