The Windmills of my Mind

You know you’re in the South when you see one of these! This “working” windmill sits in the middle of the Brazos Bend State Park and on a windy day it pumps fresh water into a small cistern.

Yes, we do get some of the most spectacular clouds here in Texas. It comes from being close to the Gulf of Mexico and from our “normal” summer weather which includes temperatures in the mid 90’s and humidities to match. Of course, every now and again we do get some really interesting hurricanes to shoot as well.
