When history is well known you have many sources...for early picture of Botany Bay

I confess was hoping for ID of the Island but yes DJL Botany Bay it is. The location btw is named after the French explorer La Perouse.

Here's that rehead again and how it looks today.

Here many people live from fishing...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Game fishing ... charter boats perhaps ? That looks like a US flag on that post. Cannot zoom in far enough to read any ports of registry but I'm guessing not mainland USA. US virgin Islands maybe ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It isn't the BVI and doesn't look like the USVI either - both the topology and layout don't match. It could be the Caribbean due to the lack of tides. I'd guess it might the south part of Guadeloupe, there are a lot of fishermen in the Saintes (which are more hilly than in the picture) but there are a couple of smaller harbours and marinas on the big island on Guadeloupe.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Although I don't have a fast enough connection to check on Google maps, I think it feels a bit non-French (too many powerboats), so I'll guess at the Spanish Virgins - Culebra?

In summer is very nice. At the end of the road, not far from docks you can find a nice beach day.
