Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Down's got it, although I would have said it was the bridge to Bailey's Island. I suppose it depends on which direction you're headed!

It is the granite cribstone bridge connecting Orr's Island to Bailey's Island in Harpswell, ME. Both Orr's Island and Bailey's Island are in the town of Harpswell, as I understand it. Because Bailey's is the outer of the two islands, the maps refer to it as the Bailey's Island bridge.

What's unusual is the use of granite blocks to build up the approaches to the span. This construction techniques is something like stacking railroad ties--alternating the direction from layer to layer, thus resulting in the "see-through" look.

The real attraction for us on two trips to Maine is Cook's Lobster House and the associated lobster pound. Cook's is about 600 ft to the southwest. You can pick up a mooring from the Orr's Bailey YC about 100 ft to the north.

Your turn, Down!

We enjoy Cook's, too. Have had friends put pins in the map from far and wide.

You have the name correct Fallard. Ha!

Here is a rock with special significance. Name the rock and its significance. The island in the background should give it away.

Sail Rock, off West Quoddy Head, billed as the easternmost bit of land in the continental US?

Hint: It's a ferry terminal.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, it's the Cape May-Lewes, DE, ferry terminal just inside the Cape May Canal in Lower Township, NJ. Should you sail by the terminal, be aware that the ferries at the terminal keep their props turning when they are parked. You can see the turbulence on the water surface, but apparently they are churning up the bottom enough to create sand humps in the middle of the channel. We bumped a soft bottom there with our 6' draft--sure caught us by surprise!

You're turn to post, edguy3!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I read about the turbulence before going through the canal, but didn't believe until I experienced it. Plan to pass by in a couple weeks but air draft will mean a trip around the cape.

Attached is a picture taken a block from my office. (I meant to take a current photo while at lunch, but, the weather didn't cooperate.)
