Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Geoff's got it--and pretty quickly! I was hoping you'd make the connection to the Visitor Center, which is the gateway to the Fire Island National Seashore here.

The national seashore extends for 26 of the 30 mile extent of Fire Island. Or at least what used to be a 30 mile barrier island: TS Sandy opened up 2 breaches, so that Fire Island became "Fire Islands." I had visited this site in 1995 by boat, when there had been a breach from winter storms (further to the east) that was being filled by dredges. I'm not sure what the national seashore will do: let nature take its course?

Your turn, Geoff.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry for the delay - let's try this place - I'll also try to dig up some pics from a more usual angle.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture





Looks like this thread is slowly running out of steam - here are a few clues to see if we can keep it going a little longer.

The first picture is from a painting and shows the yacht club - a bit too stuffy and golf-centric for my taste but it is on the list of oldest yacht clubs.

The GE shows the same club house in the top right corner and the boat part way down the pontoon is the club launch. This would all be out of sight to the left of the original picture.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

All I can guess is that it is in the USA in an area with lots of tidal differences. I wonder if the yacht club pennant colors can be looked up somewhere?

Looks LI Sound-ish, almost thought it was Port Jeff Harbor at first. Somewhere farther west? Nice painting.

Old yacht club points to the east coast. You probably can look up the pennants but I don't know where and it's your job to go look

Thanks, it's a detail from a bigger painting. Look NE or actually more ENE from LI Sound.

Famous for a particular shellfish. And the floating boat sheds and dingy docks are fairly distinctive.

Cummon, one of you New Englanders must recognize it.
Bay sheltered by a barrier beach.
Had a WWII era US Navy vessel named after it.
I'm running out of clues.......

There is a strong visual similarity; I can see why you'd think that. Getting to our location by road would be easy from Marion but you'll have to sail round to the "other coast" of MA to find it.
