… especially on warm days
Lots of caravans have converged on the field at Medmenham and the flags are making me curious, so ...
yesterday morning before it became too hot we took a stroll for a closer look
Lots of sheep munching going on too
and there’s Sue waiting for Meg and Penny to do what dogs do
There’s also a very tranquil stream flowing along the field’s boundary
An interesting building over the Thames and there’s Sue again
This is the flag that I wanted to see close up, it’s the Royal Standard and it’s illegal to fly it unless the Queen is in residence …
which I don’t think she is!
The flag above it is the Berkshire County Council flag although it was never officially adopted
These flags are more usual; The George Flag (Flag of England) and the Flag of Scotland and even I easily recognised the smiley face flag!
This is the second national flag of the Confederate States of America …
does anyone recognise the face though? Could it be Elvis who was born in Mississippi, a confederate state?
Sue and Andy passed us going upriver, and then down again, and then up again but they did find a mooring eventually
There are lots of young lambs and one of the littlest is getting bullied here, but he was ok
Altogether now ….. aaaarrrr!
Trip boat The Waterman goes down river and comes back with its passengers having great fun
A late afternoon walk through the cornfield, it was still rather warm
… and then there are cars messing about too
George thinks these are Renault Floride’s unless anyone else knows better
Apart from being called The Red Robin I’ve no idea what this is.
The lady looks rather sophisticated!

We’ve spend a fantastic week moored here at Medmenham but tomorrow it’s time to move on.
