This is an old whaling town.

The boat (and it's owner) are very famous (I used photoshop to obscure the name).
The harbor serves this town and another, larger town.
I'll see if I can dig up some more pictures.

Well we've made it to the right State but Fort Independence is much bigger, more impressive and better preserved.

Well, this is turning out to be more difficult than I expected.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fort Phoenix is on the Fairhaven side of the harbor but let's not split hairs.
The Boat is Joshua Slocum's Spray, which he found and rebuilt in Fairhaven.
All yours, sir.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Anyone who knows this will know the exact location ie the name of the bar, the island and the event. Name at least one of the three.
