Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You must be talking about the Boca de Iguanas river that winds inland for about 5 miles and is a popular place for dinghies and kayaks. I haven't found any colloquialisms, but the mangrove "arch" you show reminds me of a similar mangrove setting on the Gulf coast of Florida known as the "tunnel of love". That one isn't far from the Ding Darling nature preserve on Sanibel that is supposed to have alligators, but I didn't see any when i cruised thru years ago.
