My turn to post a few,
I have always loved these windmills!

This is a windmill I found in warmbaths somewhere




there is a story behind this photo, a buddy of mine who lives in hermanus asked me to check out and deliver his 660 from Centurion to him.
I had taken the cast off my leg 3 days before the trip after I broke it on my plastic, I managed to do 1103 km's before I just couldn't go anymore. my leg was throbbing like hell

anyway, this is one of the windmills on the route through the karoo




This is my little guy climbing a windmill in warmbaths somewhere




here are some windmill photos that I fell in love with

On a farm road when you go past Floriskraal Dam towards the N1. 22 gates later we found the last gate locked and had to return and do the 22 gates again.

Loosen the bolts on the swivel side and replace when you're trough!
Easier than  22 gates!
If you dont like something, change it!
If you cant, change your attitude.
Dont complain!

Had no means to do that. I did not mind the road back as there was lots of wildlife around. JKust got a bit hairy when it got dark - lots of Kudos around.
It is a brilliant road so all good and the missus was doing the gates...

Ek moet sÍ , dit was awesome om so tussen die wilde diere te stap. Dit voel bietjie anders as om in die kar na hulle te kyk. :thumleft:

Daardie olifant wat so uit die Bos gestap het , het ons nogal laat skrik.

Op die Sterkrivier pad is 'n oulike padstal/kafee waar die windpomp binne-in die toilet gebou staan.
