gives an impression that the ship rammed the castle, Lisl.
Lisl: It does look like that, Ayush. The Castle is meant to be Bristol Castle, and the ship to be the Matthew, which was sailed by Cabot to North America in 1497

Floating fortress!

Un bateau sur un bateau, c'est original.
Lisl: A sort of flag, Martine
You sure know how to find them, Lisl! I love it.
Lisl: This really was on the "Matthew", Ginnie, probably obvious as I took it when I sailed round the harbour in her

Boat, castle, sea & land. Do I detect conquest Lisl?
Lisl: That's what it was all about back then, Chris.

Double boat Friday. Brilliant find and somebody did some fancy artistic work here. I think we are here on the Matthew in Bristol when you were able to have a trip with her??
Lisl: Spot on, Astrid!

Oh, I see this is the Matthew sailing ship in Bristol harbour - a wonderful sail! Fine that you took it by your camera!
Lisl: I had a sail round the harbour in her a couple of years ago, Philine
The famous Matthew. Love the flag
Lisl: Someone had fun stitching that, Bill

Jolie création!
Lisl: It's rather nice, Anne
A flag of the Matthew. Cool find.
Lisl: It was unexpected in this format, Mary
Very well made banner isn't it.
Lisl: It is rather nice, Brian, just right for the Matthew, I think
That is quite the image for boat Friday. A lovely bit of work.
Lisl: A bit different from usual - I am always on the look-out
A well-worn banner...
Lisl: Windy place, Bristol!

I'm guessing but is this on the Matthew in Bristol? I like the symbolism on the flag.
Lisl: It is, Alan. I had a trip round the harbour - twice - on her
Voilà  un draeau très original ..on dirait même qu'il a ete fait exprès , très beau travail !!
Bonne journée
Lisl: It is well done, Claudine. Bonne journée
