Enough of super post! I’m back to regular programming.
I now just realized that I haven’t been really witnessed artificial roadside spectacles as much as I thought I had. I think the roundabout circling Arche de Triomphe in Paris and driving through The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco are neck to neck. I’m also reminded of the many sculptures and statues in between roundabouts in Spain. The bull sign en route to Jerez is also in mind. However, I think all these have just been replaced last month by these…
I know they are just windmills, but they truly are so spectacular to look at!
Driving on the road with these windmills, it was as if I am being transported to a parallel universe. Frankly, this is one of the cases where pictures are just not enough to describe how magnificent they really are. Either that or I am just overjoyed. Seriously, I was in great awe looking at all these windmills from my car window.
Part of the wow effect is their number …Uhm… There are just so many windmills. Another part is probably because I was jealous of the people in the Philippines who had witnessed windmills in Ilocos.
Apparently, these giant fans are not just for beatification purpose nor to shoo away annoying tourists like me. They are actually erected as alternative source for energy. You can coin me on that, or perhaps you fancy a Windmill Tour to make sure I’m reliable.
As you can tell, I drove back and forth, and pull over off track plenty of times. I was already thinking, Palm Springs is really shapened up to be a good travel destination. More of that of course… *wink*
I can’t believe I didn’t find any quote that I can use for my 200th post from Free Penny Press. She is such an excellent writer! I have been itching to feature her blog for so long that now, I don’t even care that this post is in no corelation to hers. Other than her eloquence, Lynne is now also focusing on a big picture – that’s it! Photography. Laugh, cry, be entertained, be informed of her solid reliable reviews and be inspired by Free Penny Press. My favorite post, a testament to what I just said – Combat Boots & Gas.
So, what is everyone’s favorite man-made roadside spectacles?
