Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No nibbles? Some more clues:
The town was sacked and burned during the War of 1812. Later on the lighthouse shown here was constructed and named after one of the defenders.

Also, the name of the former hotel would lead you to believe you were much further south.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well, nobody else seems to be working this, so let's move it along.. Havre de Grace, MD, the hotel is/was called the Bayou..

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Good job, Faster.

Admiral Cockburn sacked and burned Havre de Grace 200 yrs ago this year. Havre de Grace is at the mouth of the Susquehanna River, which had a canal system with locks, one of which is now a museum.

the other canal that is nearby is the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

The Bayou hotel opened up around 1918 and shut down in the Depression. It was bought by the Franciscan nuns and operated as a home for older women. It then was sold and turned into high end condominiums.

Back to you, Faster.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK.... lets see how this one goes. The actual place we're after is the local name given to this location:



This beach is nearby:



Another view nearby:



While you're "in" our target location you may see a small croc, or one of these cute, colourful creatures:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

hmmm... no takers?

Not Caribbean (obvious from mountains distant) and it is mainland. The bay here is home to a seasonal and not-so-transient cruising 'community' (with a 'resident mayor' - so I've been told.....)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I wish I had a clue of where to start on these pictures, but the area looks very nice and worth visiting.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Pacific Coast, not Canada or US. The target place is a bit of a local 'attraction' with a bit of an inaccurate name.

The resort in the distance on the beach shot shows prominent when you find it; the entrance to our destination is looking the opposite direction:
