Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Bilge shoots, Bilge scores .... well done that man.

Generally known as Tivanipupu but GE spells Tavainipupu ... sneaky buggers.

Wharf is still there but much shortened and hidden under cloud cover on GE.

I need to sail there one day to pay my respects to an old friend who once owned the island and is buried there.

The wartime connection with America that is most well known would be the sinking of PT109 and a certain JFK who was skipper of the thing. That was away to the north west.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This was a very very poor choice on my part. It was getting late last night so quickly picked something I had on hand, so I blame it on the previous one taking so long. ...The one that didn't look the same on GE.

Yes, it's a waterfall in Western Canada. We're looking for the name of the bay, I don't think the waterfall has a name. This bay is just off a channel which shares it's name with many of the world newspapers. The bay is on the mainland of BC.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well, I found it but I can't name it, nor the falls. Unfortunately for non locals, GE isn't very good about naming channels and passes (but I got THAT hint - also the name of a delightful bay further south...) makes it tough. And this location is utterly un-named as well.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, I see that now. I was trying to find it just now through GE myself and now I realize that charts of the area would also be required. Likely only a local would have gotten that. Next time I will choose a location wisely...lesson learned...cleaning up my act...on with the show

I think you have it Ron...It's Kwatsi Bay off "Tribune" Channel up in the Broughton Islands from the clue. Good going Ron.

OK.. location 50deg52'N, 126deg15' W for those looking.....

This was the scene of a significant historical event near the turn of a century...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hmmm.... must be Caribbean, it has that feel to it. The beach sand is dark so I immediately think of Antigua, but the traffic is right-hand drive and I could swear that I know the west coast well enough and don't recognize it. Can't be fortifications on Statia because there's no Saba on the horizon ... St. Kitts is out as well, I think. The cars look nice... perhaps a French Island south of Antigua?
