Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the north, where half my relatives come from.

I barely saw the sixth boro this June, so I had to catch up a bit, adding another day to the month to do so.  Over by the Bayonne Centerline yard, I saw three previously Bouchard boats all wearing or about the wear the lion.  L to r, it’s now Ellen S. Bouchard, Adeline Marie, and William F. Fallon Jr, previously named

Ellen S. Bouchard, Denise A. Bouchard, and J. George Betz

I also noticed a flag flying at what appeared to be half mast.

All photos, WVD.
