Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster's last photo clued me into the French islands. At first it looked like corpulent Americans in the water, but the swim suits had a Gallic flare.

Well, see if you can figure out where this is. The first photo is looking to the west. The second one is looking to the east.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Those sure look like New Englandish rocks. Could that be Mass. mainland in the distance on the first Photo? Vineyard Haven?

It certainly could be the Massachusetts mainland in the distance in the first photo, but we're not in Vineyard Haven.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We're not in Nantucket, either. In any case, we're not on an island.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The second photo is looking past channel markers at the north end of a "river" that separates the land the lighthouse is on from the mainland. However, that land is associated with a cape--not an island.

Another clue is the very shallow slope of the beach. You might assume you are close to some famous clams.

I hope this isn't making it too easy!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hmmmm a Cape? Cape Ann? Annisquam Light?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Smurphmy's got it.

These photos were taken at the north end of the Annisquam river, also known as the Blynman Canal, that connects to Gloucester Harbor to the South. It separates Cape Ann from the Massachusetts "mainland".

The body of water to the north is Ipswich Bay. If you haven't tasted fried Ipswich clams, you have something to add to your "bucket list".

Smurphny's turn!
