don't get me wrong, I am no different and can find lots of excuses for sitting my big butt in a chair reading the forums. Your right, lots to learn here and good people. The forums have helped me lots with my miniscule sailboat knowledge

you are asking in which exact place of Bay of Islands, NZ? i didn't know about this place until today, beautiful indeed...

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

we are not within the Bay of Islands with this picture and, yes, i would like the name of the harbor. it does have some historical significance.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Whangamumu Harbor, where there is an old whaling station? This would be just to the east of Bay of Islands, NZ.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

that's the spot! quite a beautiful anchorage and very interesting ashore with the old whaling station and great hiking on both the Whangamumu peninsula and towards Cape Brett. fallard's turn.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This location is known for history, nearby scenery, and local color. Our boat is somewhere in this photo, so you know it's somewhere on the US east coast.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was fast work, obelisk! The photo was taken from the Pilgrim Monument. Nearby is the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Your turn!
