Water-mill at Merton Abbey Mills (video)

Yesterday I went to Merton Abbey Mills. The old waterwheel was turning and I shot some video of it.

There has been working waterwheel on this site for hundreds of years. Originally used to grind corn, the waterwheel later powered machinery used in the dyeing and printing of fabrics, most recently by Liberty’s of London - until 1972.

A boat propellor stirs up the seabed (video)

In June 2013, we took a day-boat to Sedir Island, also known as Cleopatra Island. After some time exploring the island, the boat readied for the journey back. As it turned in the water, it's propellor churned up the shallow, sandy seabed. 

Cleopatra Island is a small island in the Gulf of Gökova in the southwestern Aegean Sea off the coast of Ula, Turkey. According to legend, Anthony and Cleopatra swam here and the sands were brought by ships from North Africa. It has been said that this type of sand can only be found in Egypt.
