Zanshin,
Take it away. I'm only in drive by mode.
Cheers

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin got the peninsula south of the inner port at Toulon. Specifically, the photo was of Cap Cepet at the SE corner of the peninsula, facing south. It has a commanding view of the Med to the south and of the approach to Toulon.

BTW, I've been having problems with my browser/internet connection and haven't been able to connect on a timely basis.

Wish I had tuned in lately. Would have recognized the Plum sign immediately. This one looks Bahama-like???

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This one's too easy, Zanshin. It's Anse Du Columbier on St. Barts. You can almost make out that weird tripod-like structure in the distance off to the left.

Here's a closer view of the left side of Zanshin's panoramic of Columbier.

Pretty much a lock, I'd say, fallard...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Assuming Zanshin agrees that I got it, here's the next location. It isn't the Med, but it is well known for its connection to sailing.

Not the Med... but still Europe?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not in the same hemisphere as Europe.

For the record, I have been to this place and arrived by water--unlike my previous challenge location--, but not in a sailboat. It was quite a few years ago (>30) and was a lot sleepier a place than in the posted photo. I don't recall it being as prominent among sailors then.

Another clue: In the late '70s I saw a 1949 Buick in the driveway of an obviously comfortable seaside home. It was not Cuba, either.
