Windmills on my mind

Julie loves windmills. When travelling in the UK we are always searching out working windmills for her to photograph, so it’s no surprise that we should make a side trip to see this Tasmanian example, the Callington Windmill in the village of Oatland which dates from 1837.

This is the only working windmill in Tasmania and, we imagine, one of the most southerly anywhere in the world.

"Platypus" is a red herring: I'm English, although my blogging career began in my record of a 2016 road trip to Tasmania. Other blogs followed covering road trips in Newfoundland (2017), the Yellowstone area of the USA (2018) and New Zealand (2019). My current project is "Now I'm 64" , a weekly blog covering UK travel and wildlife, along with bits of history, social commentary and moans about the injustice of aging. I can guarantee a few laughs, and also the occasional rant. Some of it's even quite well written!
