Windmills of Mykonos, Greece ~ #AtoZ AmaZing Photos

When I think of windmills, I used to think about the Netherlands. However, it is windmills of Mykonos that captured my heart. I have only been to a few of the Greek Islands, but Mykonos is my favorite:

Windmills of Mykonos, Greece – I love the stark white against a blue sky.

The sea was a bit rough and this wall of water splashed up over and over again, yet we could walk on the path without getting wet. The windmills are in the background.

The stark white against the blue sky wasn’t only found on the windmills.  We saw it all over the island. Here are a few other favorite photos:

We didn’t spend enough time on Mykonos, nor anywhere in Greece.

      You should have seen it, I am sure you could have writing it into a Sci-fi story somewhere. It was really bizarre.

    Those are some neat windmills, and that water wall is fascinating! I’ve heard a lot about Mykonos lately, must be a popular vacation spot. Really like that last picture, with the old church in the foreground and the town behind it.

    Really enjoying your world traveler posts. You’ve taken some fabulous photos!

    Wow! I knew Mykonos was gorgeous and your pictures do them great justice. I have visited Greece but not Mykonos and I know I will have to make it a priority next time I am in Europe. Thanks for a good read. Dropped by for A-Z.

      I had visited Greece before too, but hadn’t made it to this island in the first trip. It is now my favorite.

      I have no idea how the windmills turn 🙂
      The water spray was really cool. We could walk by and not get wet from the wall of water.

    Rhonda, I have not been to Mykonos, but those windmills are gorgeous. I love all kinds of windmills, even the new huge wind turbines, although they do tend to take over a landscape.

      I am not so fond of the new wind turbines when I am close to them, but from a distance I think a field of them looks pretty cool.

    There is that amazing blue again Rhonda! I grew up in New York so when I first moved here, it was quite a shock for me to have to deal with the light which is blinding in the summertime! I’ve never been to Mykonos but would love to go sometime.
