Friday Flags in Waterbury CT

For those that care, there is nothing as uplifting as seeing our flag fluttering in a breeze. As the wind swirls, the flag will wave as if the breeze is just there to appreciate the view.

Such was the case this past weekend as the winds were strong   in our area. I happened to pass the East Mountain golf course in Waterbury, CT and the tall pole with the flag waving was hard to miss.

Many a day as a kid, we would come down the 18th fairway and that flag would stand tall over the clubhouse.

As one of the oldest public courses in this area of the state, the East Mountain course still offers a challenge, and for me, I don't remember those holes being so long.

The flag is definitely flying proudly for you before you begin your round and is still flying proudly after you finish your round.

Ed, it would seem like that wind is strong enough, golfing may be tough.   But, not a golfer....

Those are beautiful pictures of the flag with those clouds in the background.

It does seem that as I get older, the golf course gets longer.  I had a friend make me walk the course last time I played.  Wow!  It was a real workout for a guy that swings so many times too.

Ed I can identify with what you stated:

   "I don't remember those holes being so long"

I seem to be getting shorter, and everything seems to be getting longer ..... LOL

Hi Ed - nice view of the flag from the golf course.  Strong wind must have affected your game.

Hi Ed- that is one tall flagpole!!!!   I think they must have moved the distance between those holes

It looks like the pole was moving a bit in the wind as well Ed. I enjoy seeing the flag being displayed in and around our community. It still proves the America is the greatest country in the world for people to honor 'Ole Glory that way!

Hi Ed:

I really like the look of that Flag on that tall pole, all by itself with the backdrop of the clouds in the sky.
