Windmills of My Mind
A Salute to Eric at Paris Daily Photo and our other French friends on this Bastille Day. Eric recently featured photos of the Bal de Moulin Rouge in Monmartre, and the Moulin Vert restaurant in the 14th arrondissement in Paris. I thought I would show you Seattle's own popular "moulin rouge" (yes, that IS Mount Rainier in the mural painted by Seattle artist Tom Brady). Red Mill Burgers is a favorite small burger restaurant and popular gathering place for many families in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood. It's outdoor seating area overlooks Greenlake. They have consistently won "best burger in Seattle" poll awards since opening in the 1990s (there is one other location in the Interbay neighborhood). They were fashioned after the original Red Mill diner and creamery, open in the Capitol Hill neighborhood from 1937 to 1967.
You can take a virtual tour of France this Bastille Day by clicking the links at the lower right to visit these cities in the daily photo family: Paris, Avignon, Bastia, Bazainville, Bernay, Chateauroux, Dijon, Lyon, Montchauvet, Pont-sur-Sambre, Real, Rouen, Sainte Maxime, Toulouse, Vallaruis, and LeHavre.
After all these French connections, I'm hearing Dusty Springfield's recording of Michel Legrand's beautiful "Windmills of Your Mind" playing in my head.
