Not Baja... but it is Mexico. South of the peninsula, not Sea of Cortez...

Blue Bay, Tenacatita, Mexico? I understand you don't let your dog go for a swim in the river at the western end of the bay. Something about caimans.

Right beach - but we're looking for the 'attraction' that's at the other end.. the entrance is the last picture above.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You must be talking about the Boca de Iguanas river that winds inland for about 5 miles and is a popular place for dinghies and kayaks. I haven't found any colloquialisms, but the mangrove "arch" you show reminds me of a similar mangrove setting on the Gulf coast of Florida known as the "tunnel of love". That one isn't far from the Ding Darling nature preserve on Sanibel that is supposed to have alligators, but I didn't see any when i cruised thru years ago.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Close enough.. Yes, they call it the "jungle river" and it's a popular afternoon jaunt for the cruisers there. A tight crawl through the mangroves and it takes you from the beach to small town of Tenacatitta. There was a small hotel and quite a stretch of markets ther, along with a small RV park above a nice snorkelling hole known as the "Aquarium".

I understand that something has happened there and the local owners have cleared all the businesses out and also tossed the RVers.

Next!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There have been reports of boaters landing on the beach and being chased off at gunpoint. Apparently there is some kind of conflict on the ownership that the recently-elected municipal chief executive has promised to clear up so the public can return.

Getting back on topic: See if you can identify this location. Shortly after passing through the road bridge, you will next encounter a rail bridge and a sharp turn with a poor sightline. Makes for an interesting trip.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We're in New England, by a famous port. Looking for the name of the waterway in the photo.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Close enough! This is the Rt 127 drawbridge known locally as the "Cut Bridge". The "Cut" is actually the Blynman Canal which was dug in 1643 to connect Gloucester harbor with the Annisquam River. The Blynman Canal/Annisquam River connects Gloucester to Ipswich Bay at the other (North) end and allows boaters to avoid the trip around Cape Ann. It is a rather scenic passage for boats that draw 5' or less.

Your turn, Down.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That is a blind left turn after the RR bridge! My wife and I paddle a canoe around Cape Ann every year in honor of Howard Blackburn. The current runs strong through the "Cut".

This one is on the other side of the world.

A beautiful place.
