Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Can we rule out volcanic islands? It looks like mainland with all that weathered granite. Is Thailand getting closer?

Not volcanic. Thailand is red hot.

The real key is the rock formations. Do the remind you of something? That's the hint that will bring you to the local name.

I'll give it to you, but that's not the name I was looking for.

The locals call it "Hin ta, Hin yai"

Either way, I'm glad someone was not afraid to get all phallic. If you google Phallic rock formations (or something of the like) the pics will come up pretty quick, along with some other impressive ones

Anyway, I had a couple more pics uploaded to photobucket so I'll post them. It's a great spot and the Reggae Bar just up from the little beach is a must.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nice pix Rob. Well, back on the other side of the planet in my cruising range:-)
The right answer to this one is the name of the take-out fish market behind those draggers on the left.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Take out fish market? Or restaurant? I'm stumped so far. Another picture perhaps?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Larsen's it is. I can remember the days when the big sword boats would come in and unload fish all day long and lean the swords along the buildings.
