This was a planned trip that I organized
for some of the residents of the assisted living
building that I worked for before retirement.
I wish I would have had someone else take a photo of this blade,
so that you could see the size.
At the far end where it connects to the gear box . . .
it is 5 foot in diameter.
I am 5 foot 4 inches . . . all I had to do was duck my head and stand inside.
We were greeted by a wonderful young couple . . .
while he showed us a film and answered question about the windmill farm,
she served us coffee,tea and cookies.
There is something very tranquil and clean about these.
I am sure that some people think that they are ugly . . .popping up everywhere,
I am not that person . . . I see a beauty in those white blades against the blue sky.
This is an iron sulpture that from the freeway . . .
looks like a heard of wild horses along the ridge.
This photo could have been better,
but I took it from the bus window while traveling down the freeway
and tried to zoom in on it.
I know that this is not my normal post,
but I thought you might like seeing it.
If you get the chance to tour one of these centers . .
go for it . . . it was quite an interesting trip.
Until my next post . . . Toodle-loo
