Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Menemsha was one of the first places I checked, but I didn't get the right angle to include the houses on shore. It had to be a place that didn't have a large tidal range and was on the genteel side, with the mix of work and recreational boats, and shoreside in very good repair. I even came back to Menemsha and tried to get the right angle on GE. I've even been to Larsen's!

Once Jon nailed it, I went back, and there, under my GE nose was:

Good work, Jon!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Louis Larsen is a legend in the history of swordfishing. I've been going there on and off for 30+ years. Here's an interesting interview with Louis Larsen about commercial fishing on the East Coast.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We have never been to "The Vineyard". We must get out more. Of Maine that is. It's tough to sail past all the friends and harbors headed west or have the time to get beyond Boston. We will fix that when the Admiral retires.

Koh Phi Phi. That was almost my first guess. There are Rock formations like that in Krabi as well. Who would have thought you would take me back to Thailand so fast

It's truly one of the most amazing places on earth. I'm a bit tired from a long day at work. I'll post my next pictures tomorrow.
