Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This anchorage is known by the name of the beach and is associated with a river that really isn't a river.. The building is your primary clue. Nearby is a national wildlife refuge.

Sakonnet River, Sachuest Bay, beach, wild life refuge. Cruised there, really looks like it!

Oh and the building is St. Georges School, once I was sure I started looking on google earth for that structure.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, now I'm second guessing myself, was the photo actually taken off Third Beach? That is a more protected anchorage and actually on the Sakonett River, still adjacent to Sachuest wild life refuge.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Rob's got it. I've always known the anchorage as "Third Beach", which is the name of the beach on the charts. It's on the north side of the peninsula that terminates at Sachuest Point. Sachuest Bay is on the south side of the peninsula. The anchorage is off the Sakonnet River, which is really part of an estuarine system that connects Rhode Island Sound to Mt. Hope Bay. The church building is part of St. Georges School in Middletown, RI.

The anchorage is protected from the typically southwesterly breezes and has good holding. You can dinghy into the public beach and take a short walk to the Sachuest preserve, or a much longer walk towards Newport. You do have to mind the rocks on your way in and out, but the anchorage itself is wide open and not crowded. You also have to watch for fish traps south of Sachuest Point if you are sailing to or from Newport--they can catch your boat.

Rob's turn!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Clues are there if you look hard enough.

And AWAY we go...

I took these pictures in the winter of 2009 I think Things may have changed a bit since this was becoming more and more popular each year, even though it's pretty tough to get to.

This beach faces to the S.W.

By Day:




Just around that point you see in the above shot is this view, looking at the same point from the other side:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Great photos!

The one legged young guy selling things from the tray around his neck is such a give away.

When we were in Malaysia Nicolle was continually harassed by beggars and we really didnt have any money at the time. One day I said "you can only give money to someone with no legs and no arms!" We walked up the stairs of this road overpass and on top was this beggar on a skate board with no legs, 1 arm missing and was propelling himself along with the stump of his remaining arm. He got some dollars. We dont know how lucky we are!

So i know this photo is Asia, probably Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka or India. With the amputations most prevalent in war torn countries I would say that 2009 was the end(?) of the Tamil Tiger war in Sri Lanka. So I am saying this is Galle, Sri Lanka.

Well, it's not Galle and since Galle is one of the few place in Sri Lanka that faces the water in that direction it's safe to say we can rule out Sri Lanka.

I'm not gonna say too much else yet as you are getting warmer and using the clues.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well I feel like an ass! Because I missed the ass of the cow!

India!

The cruiser hang in southern India is Cochin. And that is on the west coast so the beach could face SW.
I cant use GE cos of my internet but the beaches in Vochin are long and this doesnt appear to be so I think its the SW facing beach just at the first headland, N, of the enterance to Cochin, Mattancheri.

I havent been there so i dunno.

The cow is a clue and I thought the first guess would be India. I don't know if this place is famous for cows like India. However, it is famous for cows.
