Blue Skies o'er Blackminster

On the island we'll pass by dozens of old windmills.  They remain from times when this island's rich soil, fertilized by seaweeds washed ashore, produced an exceptionally fine grade of wheat.  These mills refined the wheat to flour for export to the Continent.  This, along with the excellent fishing from the port, was the basis of the traditional economy.
