Behind the wing!? Sacré bleu!

Enjoy the trip over, you're walking into some pretty decent* weather so count yourself lucky, it's only just landed........

*High teens / low 20's is what we call decent 🤣
You mean this pretty decent weather? Back at the hotel at lunch time. Drying out the brollies. Socks. Shoes. 😂. Better tomorrow 🤞

The preparations for the Jubilee are well underway with street blockages all throughout Westmninster. There's an impressive display of the Union Jack all the way down the Royal Parade and they are flanked by other flag posts for each Commonwealth country with their name on each. Couldn't see Australia then looked ahead and watched the guys hoisting up our flag next to Canada. NZ was to be next, then South Africa, then India.

Does anyone know what was happening at this field to the right? Wondered if it was the recent Horse Show.

Yesterday's field office, near Orielton, sthn Tas.

Went hunting for a 200 year old colonial farmstead site, which after long searching we pinned down to what is today the middle of a field atop a small knoll ... up there:

Welcome to summer in the UK :)

Go for a trip down Regent Street too, Union Jacks all the way overhead.
