Canaries are closer than Haiti, still a long way away, not an ocean.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm thinking Asia. Somehow doesn't look far north to me and "ocean as far as you can see" disqualifies seas like e.g the Baltic, Med, Red etc.

Sorry! I missed your previous post and I've been busy.

I sure looks like Asia but "Canaries are closer than Haiti, still a long way away, not an ocean.", so maybe Azores.

"The view to the south is nothing but ocean for as far as they eye can see" excludes a lot of the Med but not all. Unless he meant on a foggy day

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

"As far as the eye can see" even from that hill isn't going to be more than 20-30 miles without high ground in the distance..

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

"ocean" as far as the eye can see ..... ocean not sea.

Canaries closer than Haiti but a long way away .... would you say that any part of the Med is a long way away from the Canaries ? (In this context)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I doubt you could see more than two or three miles with that mist.

Cumon Rob, We're all going to start feed off each other if you don't point us in the right direction.
