Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

USLSS Cranberry Island Station was the next clue. East Bunker Ledge at the eastern end of Eastern Way it is! At low tide seals sun bathe on the ledge. There are days when the pyramid is over washed. We see the ledge from our mooring in Seal Harbor.

Your turn Fallard. Well done.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This one should be a little more recognizable on GE, once you get in the neighborhood. The structure is very distinctive and has a nordic feel.

A clue: If you sail here, you may have a "near death" experience.

It must belong to the Catholic Church. They have all the cool real estate.

The mind boggles at the reason for a Church to have those two tunnels.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It doesn't belong to any church and it's not in tidal waters. You could sail there from tidal waters if you had the time.

Nice sunny day with clear shadows. If the photo was date/time stamped probably someone in this forum could work out the lat/long!
Not me though.
Building in foreground has a Spanish look.

Rock Island, Wisconsin at the tip of the Door County Peninsula. Death's Door ("Porte des Morts") is the passage between the actual tip of the peninsula and Washington Island, so named by early French explorers and now featuring more than a few wrecks.
