Seaduction - too big and busy for Jost (see 2013 Trip Blog and Diary 2013-02-13)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Morning gents... Caribbean indeed, of course, but neither of you are close thus far.. The shoal in the foreground is large and distinctive, and obviously this is a popular cruising harbour... I believe this is really the only major anchorage on this island.

It's the island in the background in this shot as we are headed further south...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Although that island has a similar look to Antigua when heading south, I am certain that Antigua has more than 1 anchorage

I bet that Mark will chime in soon, identifying not only the anchorage but naming the boats, their occupants and their liquor supplies!

Got it, Seaduction.. sorry for the delay.

A truly delightful spot, that first shot was taken along the hike/walk to the other side and the turtle sanctuary.. Bequia has a charming, colourful community and a Canadian built farmers market on the waterfront.

That took longer than I thought, and Zanshin, I'd expect you'd been there before??

Never been there myself, St. Barts was as far south as I've been. Zanshin, I'd like you to post the next photo, even though you're probably asleep by now.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks for letting me give it a another go, Seaduction. I looked for a picture of an ice-bound, frozen over port with a deep layer of snow obscuring the details and taken in a foggy snowstorm so that Faster wouldn't get it, but couldn't find one. Here's another picture instead:

I am guessing we are in the Mediterranean. there are a number of wharfs and port structures built using these cellular concrete caissons in Italy. I can't identify the location though.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, lots of places in the Med use those concrete caissons.
