Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK with Guinness, not so with cigars. Next post is in a warmer locale. Hope it isn't too easy:

No reason to feel bad. Quite the opposite, yr responsible for a great thread that has resulted in a lot of pleasure to many and has extended knowledge of worldwide nautical areas to all of us. Over 2500 posts and 87,000 views! Well done.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

@LaurenceU - the thread was just triggered by me, it is the people who posted great pictures and others who guessed, both incorrectly and correctly, at their locations that made this thread.
@Mark - no, it is not on Grenada.

The picture was taken while facing roughly north.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin's got it, alright, and there's no problem in moving this thread along when the identity is obvious--especially when folks on this thread are participating from so many different time zones.

The photo I posted was taken about 10 years ago and is virtually identical to a photo found on GE, so it would be possible for someone who hadn't been there to make a positive ID. In Zanshin's case, he probably recognized it right away from his Caribbean cruises!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

donjuanluis - I forgot about my blog pictures! I opened up my collection and thought I'd choose a Caribbean location and looked through the Dominica ones and added the one above. All yours...
