We liked Monday’s windmills so much that we headed to Sainte-Alauzie to see a windmill in action. The windmill demonstration was part of Journees Du Patrimoine (a heritage weekend when various buildings and monuments that are not usually accessible are open to the public). We didn’t understand much of the detailed technical explanation in French, but this windmill was at one time used to grind wheat. It reminded us of a sailboat, relying on the winds to guide its course/grinding.
