Definitely one of the Croatian Islands.

Your on to it as DJL said "thousands of islands"

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Amazingly enough I still cannot come up with photographic evidence. I first thought it was Vis but given the party it would hvae to be Hvar.

Not quite accurate ..... Hvar is the "big" island nearby. Palmizana is actually on Sveti Klement or San Clemente. Couple of nms to the west.

Palmizana it is, on San Clemente. Hvar town is about twenty minutes away by water-taxi. I stayed overnight here at the insistence of my 24 yr old. Bracing myself for a noisy night I was pleasantly surprised to find all the party people gone by 9pm. They had all gone to Hvar and other Islands in the area



Over to you TDW

Back in 1788 a man and his associates went missing after leaving a bay on the east coast of NSW. Shortly afterwards the First Fleet upped anchor in Botany Bay and sailed north to Port Jackson, aka Sydney Harbour.

The search party for the missing men landed here.

Me AWOL

Folks,
I'm about to disappear for the next 36 hours. May not have any web access.
If you think you have an answer, post it and ask one of the other mods to adjudicate. I've PM'd them the answer.
Cheers
