Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well. Since it will be a few more hours before I have access to my photos, lets talk this through.

We know:
It's a skinny stretch.
Access to a harbor that can handle mega-ships
On the upper east coast

Will add:
It's name does not represent the municipality, however, there is a municipality of that name. Sadly, we have all heard of the municipality.

Well, it's a bulk carrier, likely an oiler, and there are plenty of refineries and tank depots inshore of Sandy Hook NJ...

Seems that Faster was, errrr, faster.
The next shot was of the ship rounding Sandy Hook and the skyline would have been a dead giveaway anyway.

Well done gentlemen, well done.

I believe I know this but alas the curve of time requires that I visit my friends at Jet Blue at the first light of dawn.

Wild guess... Shannon Falls. If I'm correct, I'm going to play roulette tonight. C'mon 17!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

No, not Shannon Falls.. (long the local source of water for the Carling OKeefe brewery - but not any more..) Shannon Falls is near our former home of Squamish BC.. but you're too far south.
