Moulin de Bléré - star of la Poste

Tents@le Moulin des Aigremonts set up for the day
You would have thought that mid-June would be warmer and more pleasant than this! Sadly the big day for Bléré's mill when it featured on a new set of French postage stamps turned out to be grey and dreary.  Nor was there allegedly enough wind to turn the sails, although to this untutored person there did appear to be quite a lot of wind available especially later in the day. I guess it all depends upon how urgently you need flour!

Ready to turn but not enough wind!
Inside the tent: exhibition of the watercolours of the mills

We have a wonderful windmill museum in S Alberta where I do my bird surveys.
