Geoff, take it away...Le. Marin is where we were. In Martinique, as you suggested.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I thought the thread had died a graceful death in it's sleep and let it lie, but if Geoff54 is ready with another picture I'm game. I'm also in Guadeloupe (Iles des Saintes) and about to clear out for Dominica in 20-25 knot winds because the kids want to see whales and visit the rainforest.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry, I was busy and I didn't think that my smartass comment constituted a guess, so I didn't realize that I was holding things up.

I don't think this has been posted before but shout at me if it has. Either the name of the fort or the town....

Sorry, no.
This town played a roll in an iconic voyage. The fort is a little older, but not by that much.

Not sure what the mods can do to help, other than participate which Faster and tdw have done. I have enjoyed this thread as well but it's getting harder to come up with new places and now that it's summer people would rather be outside applying bottom paint and cleaning their bilges. Maybe having had a bit of a rest, we can revive it.

I like that but I think you'd still need extreme shoal draft.

I just found out that the original fort was much older, was destoyed by the British (sorry about that) and subsequently rebuilt.

Here's another clue - I hope it isn't too obvious
