Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm going to be begging for some hints here.

I'd hazard a guess that we are in Uraguay and that is a river not a canal, but that is all I have got.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

thank you Andrew for improving the picture, still have things to learn about posts.
The picture is not in Uruguay, where there is only one draw bridge. In the place where the picture was taken there are so many of them...

regards

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I know exacckerry where it is! Ft Lauderdale just north of the basin-y bit.
Looking north from 26 07.8145 N 080 06.5754 W I dont know what the spot is called but I had a run in with an ignorant, arrogent jerk in a speeddboat and uniform that was without doubt the worst copper I have seenin my whole circumnavigation!
Every other policeman and official in the USA was great excepot for this one jerk.

Yep, I'm still venting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark you are correct, about both, the place, and the water policemen. That picture was taken from Sunrise Blvd draw bridge. And it is true, policemen there like to give shows!! and make wakes!!!

Looking closer at Marks coords, he is pointing the ver next bridge before going south, La Olas Blvd., but think is close enough to give him the right turn.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK with the slight variation in rules to places we may not have been.
I have been here in a previous trip (So its not on my website LOL) but these are not my photos.

To make it real easy I have popped in a coupla pics for you

No hints!

The photos are not splattered all over the country, but in one area no more that 30nms along a coast and not more than 5 miles inland from the coast.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It could be good for the rookies to know the rules...and all the pictures I've posted were taken by me, something obvious to notice....
Back to business, are we close to Marocco?
