It's most certainly not. Uncle Albert and Flo were on a European holiday.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Lighthouses are a bit too easy - esp one as unique as that.. AND I know where you've been

Different part of the world... the second pic has a significant clue for any 'locals' in the area.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Your neck of the woods or the other side ? I'm presuming we are in Canada, though it doesnt look all that cold. Meanwhile it doesn't look much like Mexico. Is the clue for the locals those odd looking circular stone blocks ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hey... we don't all live in igloos! Yes Canada, west coast, yes the stone 'blocks'...

To the rest of the board... we need more players here!! (no offence, fuzzy...)

Here's a slightly less summery look...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I don’t know of any tall buildings on the West coast once you get North of Vancouver and the first picture shows what looks like Yucca so it must be at least temperate. Vancouver area but that’s not the Vancouver skyline. And the round stone could be mill stones but they look a bit thick and I don’t see any grooves. Maybe stone wheels for cannon. hmmmmmmmmmm...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Tell you what Fast , if anyone is going to get this then we definitely need more Canadian players ....

Anywho ... I'm bored, stuck in office, nothing to do, so ..... That's the Fast boat in the foreground correct ? Now I think I know you've not sailed her all that far north so I reckon me should be below 50 snd I'm guessing mainland ?
