Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Now come on you lot. Fast obviously knows the answer as does Mark. I'd somewhat hoped that Mark would be nursing a hangover and might not have noticed but even so, this one is a gift.

One of you has to put this to bed.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, I am hung over. Not the worst ever but pretty darn bad. Johnny Walker bad.

Jeju Island?

I'm looking but I have to keep taking a break.... monitor sickness.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok .... note that the pic went up on Boxing Day. There is a racing yacht in said pic. This place is named after a Dutchman who also has his name attached to the much larger island to its west.

.... and anyone who suggests that they didn't know Austral was a Dutchman will get a punch on the nose.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You did give so many clues I was starting to feel foolish for not getting it. Then again, it was a memorable hangover.

This photo was taken from a sailboat. Not an ocean or a sea.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It doesn't say military property, but "U.S. Property" so I'll go out on a limb and say that the photo was taken from "not U.S. Property". I didn't see such signs around the USVI so perhaps it is further west... The shoreline of Culebrita?
