Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry, not Elburg. Not too far away, though (although nowhere in Holland is 'all that far away )

Not Drimmelen either..

I'll settle for the town, but really after what this place is...(excluding the marina)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

"End of the Road"... big hint.... btw there are not that many marinas as substantial as this one very nearby.

Here's a couple of shots that might help as to WHAT this place might be...

Do you like Guinness?? How about a cigar?

You got it. On the edge of the meer outside the long dyke/breakwater that is the Lelystad-Enkhuizen road which separates the Markermeer from the Ijsselmeer. You can just see the three stacks of the old lime kilns top center of the pic below.



Well done!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fallard has to have it. The lifeboat is the Neeltje Jacoba and her home base is Enkhuizon.
