I couldnt get a photo from my big computer so i took one on the ipad from the cockpit. There is a cold norther up to 30 knots at the moment and this bay is copping it.
The buildings on the center left are accommodation blocks for a navy station, the blob building center right... Hence the regularity of the buildings and eye sore main building

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, I was working the Key West hunch, based on the US flag in the first photo and even guessed it was related to the Navy Base, but couldn't get a good angle on where the photos were taken. Can you be specific?

I knew it was a mooring field and I've been to this mooring field albiet a few years ago now and everything seemed right. The mooring field is behind Fleming Key in Garrison Bight.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

First look at the clues available. There are palm trees so it's warm. The one boat name you can read is in English and there are plenty of big expensive fishing boats. So in the US or very close andthe surrounding land very close to sea level. Fallard got that. Now look for flags..there is none not even a coutesy flag. The boats are not at anchor nor are they in slips but tied bow to stern. There are a couple of boats rafted together. There are two sports fishers millimg about. There are smaller craft there. There is one sailboat in the picture and there are quite a few boats in a small area.
