The Flower-De Bloem Windmill and stumbling across the Otter

The Flower or De Bloem in Dutch is located across from Westerpark close to the center of Amsterdam. It seems this windmill was originally close to the West Church in the center of Amsterdam and was moved in 1877. This windmill was built in 1786 and was used to mill grain.

I have been living in Amsterdam for a long time now but the city still surprises me. I was on my way to take a picture of the Windmill above and stumbled across this windmill that I had never noticed. De Otter. This windmill was built in 1631 and was used to saw wood.
