LOL Yeah, the kids heard that quote when they were watching the remake of the Addams Family and liked it. I thought it made a good family creed.

OK, I'll give you guys another view with a clue...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It looks like Obelisk has it. The last photo can be found on a Trinidad, CA site that references the red Jumpin Jack charter fishing boat shown.

Otherwise, the original use of the pier might have been to serve the Trinidad Whaling Station, but that would go back to 1927. Need Azzerac to confirm the location and the original use.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Obelisk has it! Good job.

Fallard gets the bonus point:

"When the Bruno de Hezeta expedition took possession of the bay on June 11, 1775, he called it Puerto de la Trinidad because it was Trinity Sunday. The earliest recorded wharf was a wharf constructed alongside Trinidad Head in 1870; it was used for both passengers and cargo (especially lumber). The site itself was earlier used as a whaling station.

The current all-wooden pier dates back to 1946 when it was constructed with contributions from the Arcata Lumberjacks' Association. It was then, and still is, one of the main launching sites for sportfishing craft along this wild stretch of coast."

Whatcha got for us Obelisk?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Since momentum is everything on the internet and nobody else has posted a picture, here's a new one:



After posting I realized that I'm off to Denmark today, I'll keep checking to see who identified the picture correctly, but I might not be online as much as I'd like.
