Choose Your Windmill Son

By digicammad  
Everybody must remember those childhood days at the seaside, begging for a little windmill (and a bucket, spade, ice cream, candyfloss, fish and chips...)

I spotted these statues on the front at Colwyn Bay over the weekend and was struck by how they appeared to be gazing at the (huge) wind farm on the horizon. I know a lot of people think the wind turbines are ugly, but personally I think they have a kind of grace and elegance. I wonder if the people who build and maintain them think of their childhood desires.

Thanks for looking.

Nicely done.

My only concern with the windfarms is these days it is getting harder and harder to look around and not see them

I'd rather see windfarms than coal fired power stations Roy.
