Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

St. Anna - wow, you are good (even though you've got a 'home advantage')! We'll have to get the wombat to confirm, though.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hi Zanshin,
thanks - I will claim the home advantage, but clarify that the wombats 2 photos are 1000nm north of me and 500 nm south. So the the young furball has covered a lot of ground/water to show and tell.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nailed it again StAnna. Broughton Island(s) it is. Gem of a spot btw. I'd never been there until late last January when we sailed over from Port Stephens ( see Cook's misses) for an afternoon. Never went back. We ended up staying there until it was time to head back down to Sydney. Just us and two other boats. Wonderful.

Ref cook's misses ..... after spending some time in Botany Bay he then sailed up the NSW coast without noticing three large harbours .... Sydney, Broken Bay and Port Stephens.

StAnna .... I've not sailed further north than Broughton, south Jervis Bay but I did join a boat up north and sailed across the top. Places like Cairns, Port Douglas, Thursday Island, Gove even Darwin. Very very different to today both good and bad.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, this is a great place and I cannot edit its name so the real quiz is to find the link to Captain Cook - near this place


for TDW, note the KP46 'Southern Cross" in front

HINT - on the hill is the hospital [where my grandad worked] before the 'great' earthquake

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

When I can answer so easily I'm always a bit loath to do so. Old Jimmy Cook was apparently doing poorly at the time.

Oh to hell with it ..... The town is obviously Napier in New Zealand which is located on Hawkes Bay. To the north (70 odd nms) is Poverty Bay which was Cook's first anchorage in NZ waters.

I have absolutely no idea!..

Does look like somewhere along the coastline of NSW though.
