Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The last picture looks like it was taken from an observation deck at an airport. I always thought that the shortest walk in the world from an internation airport to a dinghy dock was in the BVI, from the airport departure gate to Trellis Bay is only about 300 yards. But this looks even shorter, whereever it may be.

Not an airport.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hmmm... but it looks set up for a lot of traffic - a cruise ship terminal, then. How about Puerto Rico on the north shore and roughly nw of the airport? I've got a slow connection so can't check up on Google Earth.

Your first sentence is correct. Second sentence is not correct.

Thanks Obelisk, that is amazingly remote!

Did you consider crossing to Antarctica? Or maybe that's just not possible.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Seaduction - does that mean I get to post 1/2 of the next picture?

Let me see if I can find clues in your picture and I'll give it another go, but most likely someone else is going to be faster and will snatch my 1/2 victory away.

How about Port Canaveral, FL?

Bingo! A winner. Just 30 minute drive from my home. Photo taken from aboard the Freedom of the Seas as we were embarking on a 2317 nmi. round trip through the western Caribbean. The monster ship cruises at 20 knots.

Your post, Obelisk. What part of the globe are we going to see this time?
