Three Flag Fine Day

Many Maritimers are fans of the Boston Bruins, an American hockey team. This boat seems to be flying three flags. A Canadian flag, the Boston Bruins and something surrounded by yellow.

 

I did a bit of research in PEI's relationship with Ragwort, yesterday's subject. It is established here and the article I read reports 100 cattle deaths attributed to it in 1982. Aso, perhaps of interest to Lisl, the Cinnibar Moth, tyria jacobea, was introduced to PEI in 1966 to control the plant. As of the writing of this article, sometime after 1989, they were working especially in the northeast part of the island.

Nice shot of a nice boat, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks for that, Frank.

Looks more like a site-seeing tour than a fishing cruise, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: There might have been a party going on.
It's a really great shot - whatever the flag! Good info on yesterday's!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, E. My fingers are cold. Bring on those warm days.

Jolie photo !
Mary MacADNski: Merci, Madame.
The Boston Bruins aren't too far away from PEI, Mary, so it makes sense, I guess. I'm sure Lisl will be pleased with your added moth info.
Mary MacADNski: PEIslanders (and New Brunswickers and Nova Scotians) traveled to 'the Boston states' for work over the past century. My family was one. I graduated from high school outside Boston.

That is interesting, thank you, Mary. I always look on Ragwort for Cinnabar Moth caterpillars. It amazes me how much ragwort we still see about in inappropriate places
Mary MacADNski: I am glad it is less found on this end of the island. I had heard it had been eradicated here and will keep a definite eye out, ripping and tearing as I go.

I guess American hockey has the same status as football does here, in other words huge..
Mary MacADNski: It sure does. Most kids play hockey and get sorted out from there.
What a dreadful plant it is then Mary.

I don't associate hockey with Americans; it seems to be more of a Canadian sport. Perhaps these are ex-Yankees?
Mary MacADNski: It is very big in the US as well with teams in Florida and Los Angeles where they would make ice 24/7.

The clouds are sailing with the boat.
Mary MacADNski: I love the clouds here. The kind I like to paint.
I really like this shot Mary, I am coming to the end of a David Baldacci thriller at the moment and the finale seems to be set in such a place as this, I will keep this in my mind as the story unfolds.
Mary MacADNski: Oooh, coming to the ned of a good book. Wonderful!
My daughter's ex partner used to follow the New York Islanders. Ice hockey here is quite popular but we are minnows compared to US and Canadian teams
Mary MacADNski: My youngest played hockey and still does in a not-competitive league. Tara, our first mate is still a fabulous hockey player. She started playing with boys.
Cattle deaths... sounds serious...
Mary MacADNski: I did not know how serious.

They seem to be having a grand time at the back of the boat. Hope someone is in charge of steering.
Mary MacADNski: I would think someone is driving the boat. It can't go on it's own.
