Cool Milling And Turning images

A couple of good milling and turning pictures I found:

Inside the Tide mill built in 1403.

A tide mill is a water mill driven by tidal rise and fall. A dam with a sluice is produced across a appropriate tidal inlet, or a section of river estuary is created into a reservoir. As the tide comes in, it enters the mill pond through a 1 way gate, and this gate closes automatically when the tide starts to fall. When the tide is low adequate, the stored water can be released to turn a water wheel.

Tide mills are generally situated in river estuaries, away from the effects of waves but close enough to the sea to have a affordable tidal range. These mills have existed since the Middle Ages, and some could go back to the Roman period.

This one is in Corroios, Seixal, Portugal.

She never turned her head. Coming from my proper, up the steep hill, she took a path I later found, crossing the carriage trail and going via the gates. Curiously, she was carrying a big spray paint can.

Up on Very first Mountain there are certain rocks that have been spray painted red and yellow. Tepees and long cabins appear, and each and every now and then there are location settings with food left for the fae.

Fan and mill

Maybe when Laila moves her fan quite fast the windmill will begin turning…
