I get such a good feeling when I see a flag ....

That is such a great place to have it ..at the dock for all to see as you arrive or leave the island

The United States Flag at the dock is just Beautiful! Such a welcome feeling. The whole dock area looks so much nicer.....

I'm ashamed to admit that I let my membership to the BBI association lapse, so I haven't seen an issue of the Tatler lately. How did the flag come to be? It is an awesome sight.

Rob .. thats a good question about the flag ..

Who ever decided to put it up was such a great idea ..


Also I want to thank all of you for taking photo's of the island and posting them here on this site ..... I would not have known about the flag if it was not posted ...

All the pictures keep me in tune with the Island as I can not visit there very ofton .... so a big thanks go out to all of you !!!!!

The placque in front of it says "Dedicated to Bois Blanc Island in recognition of M. Earl and Miriam Hoover.For your many contributions to the community of Pte.Aux Pins". So I guess the Hoover family donated it and the surrounding pavers etc.

okay, not to totally rock the boat...but nobody thinks that it is a tad ostentatious?

i would like to see a giant Jolly Rodger hang under it.
