Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's not Woods Hole. You are getting warmer, but only by a little bit. Moving from Falmouth to Woods Hole is the right direction, just not far enough.

Another hint: The green area on the other side of the channel is a park.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Down's got it.

The view was from the Rt. 1 bascule bridge, looking SE toward Mystic River Park, which normally does not allow tie ups longer than 15 minutes--and that's only ahead of a scheduled bridge opening.

This photo was taken just before TS Irene hit the area in 2011. Whenever a major storm threatens, many boats come up the Mystic River for protection from the seas expected. Many of them tie up in this area and sometimes stretch lines across the channel to keep the boats from slamming the docks.

Good job, downeast450; your turn!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I was sure it was a photo looking across Camden harbor at Wayfarer Marine's docks when I first saw it. Even the large building in the background fit as their large boat shed. "Hurricane hole" didn't fit with its ese exposure

I have enjoyed Mystic. I got to do some consulting work at the Seaport Museum many years ago. Lived on the grounds in the "farm house" and had the run of the place after hours. Great folks, fun times cruising on the tug. An amazing place!. I haven't been back for a long time but hope to make it that far west by boat in a couple of years. Might just ride the train down and visit the museum this fall.

This picture was taken facing "east". Should be an easy one if you have ever cruised "Downeast". The 15' tall granite pyramid used to have a huge iron basket mounted on top of it. The USLSS would maintain a fire in the basket during bad weather before the whale oil fired light on Baker Island was installed. Imagine rowing logs out in a dory to keep the fire burning during a winter storm! The USLSS was an amazing organization of amazing men.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There appears to be a pyramidal structure on East Bunker Ledge in Eastern Way. It is about .9 nm north of Little Cranberry I. and about .75 nm SE of the entrance to Seal Harbor.
