Your points are valid but we tend to go along with the OP's answer. To date I don't think we've ever had a disagreement over the final answer. It does seem to all work out in the end. Remember this all pretty light hearted, nothing overly serious and you don't even get a prize when you do win.

All good mate.

But not inside the Med ?

I'm thinking Portugal then, near Cascais ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It might sound a bit troppo, but it looks like the village at the base of Stromboi, the volcano off the Italian coast. The roofs do look a bit English, though.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There are several things in that picture that make me think it's in England. It looks like one of the little drying harbours in Cornwall... but I've been in most of them and don't recognize it - maybe I'm just getting old and my memory is playing tricks on me.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

What happen to the yellow power boat at the right of the picture? and what to the boat at the back, looks like a jeep over a hull..., it has a "photoedited" spot? we can not see the name of the port...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes - there are a couple of photo edits to remove give aways such as the name of the port.
