Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was pretty fast, Geoff! I didn't realize that the Firth of Clyde extended as far as Ailsa Craig, but upon checking, I think you are right.

The weather connection? Folks in Ayrshire used to say that you could tell the weather by looking out to Ailsa Craig. If you couldn't see it, it was raining. If you could see it, it was about to rain!

Your turn, Geoff!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's quite distinctive so if you've seen it, it's easy to recognize.

It is the only source for Ailsite, a type of blue granite that supposedly makes the finest curling stones. No longer mined, a few are still made from loose stones that are collected there. There is an historic light house and it is home to a large colony of gannets. It is also for sale, should you want to own an iconic landmark.

I suppose I'd better find another picture......

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The rock is Morrow Rock in Morrow Bay. I was about to say that San Luis Obisbo was 10 miles down Cabrillo Hwy but I guess Morrow Bay is probably in San Luis Obisbo county. Anyway, you got it - over to you :-)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks like we're back in the Caribbean again. This picture reminds me of Oranjestad, Aruba...but I don't think it is.

Lots of sedan bridge sport fishers too, so maybe we're somewhere near Cabo.
