New land reclaimed from reclaimed land reclaimed from the sea, the murmuring water on both sides of the road flows through windmills into the Lek River and then into the North Sea. Standing under the windmill, looking up at the giant, waving a cross-shaped arm, the combination of speed and strength, dignified and domineering. Watching the Miller stepping on the big wooden control turntable, stepping on the bracket at the end of the mill, he raised it a little bit and listened to the huge wind blades accelerating to rotate in his ears. Powerful rotation caused the whistle of the wind. When everyone is looking up at the windmill in the blue sky and white clouds, occasionally bowing his head, stepping on his own rhythm in the green grassland, leisurely walking to a fairy, gazing at the silent sense of distance after a glance, not dodging, but if nothing happens from the side, not far or near, vigorous and powerful pace, only when it needs to stop, just pause, sit for a moment, and leave behind his back. Shadow, look back at the moment people can not capture, and then self-stare, continue to move forward, occasionally sniffing the smell of grass or flowers, in the Windmill Village after the rain..
