A View From the Front Porch

The Stars and Stripes on PorchSitting on our front porch, as we’re apt to do on a cool evening, I can see three American flags flying (and one French flag, but they are also flying Old Glory). There are several more on our block and, if the area is expanded just a little, dozens fly everyday.

San Leon is a flag-flying community which sprawls across a small peninsula that juts into Galveston Bay. Many businesses fly the Stars and Stripes and the Texas flag on 25′ to 50′ flag poles out front. The strong coastal breezes keep them waving, if not snapping.

How about where you live? Can you view any flags from your porch? Is there a flag on your porch?
