Such a typical english family as well, brilliant shot, especially with the barrows in the background. juamei Posted by juamei

It is extraordinary to see the American president at Stonehenge, and the family so delighted to meet him. Just one of those nice moments in time after all the big talk about war... moss Posted by moss

Thanks for posting the additional BBC news link with photos Moss (I thought best not try and link into FB here). Great photos of the family - bet that made their day, and his too I should think. I can just hear the children saying "Who is President Obama Daddy". A memorable snapshot indeed. tjj Posted by tjj
