Kinderdijk

In the morning, we tied up at Kinderdinjk.  This is when I realized just how long (and skinny) the Viking Eir was.

Kinderdijk is one of the many places in The Netherlands which pumps water from parts below sea level to above sea level.  There were about twenty windmills, dating back hundreds of years.

Several of the following pictures are 360 VR.  Click on play in order to pan the picture.

When standing underneath the windmill blade, the size and power of the blades are impressive.

The son of the windmill resident is realigning the windmill to face into the wind.

Then we sailed on further into The Netherlands.
