Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks kind of similar but other side of the world....
(Hint) Almost exactly the other side of the world.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Bradypus variegatus are on South and Central America, and common in Brazil amazon wild, but not many in the North east of South America. So we are looking for islands? I'm lost!

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

LaurenceU.... You're an ocean away.... and a little north. (Remember Scratch, the sloth)

Split the difference in latitude between your guess and MarkOfSeaLife's guess. Go 1/2 way around the world from the longitude of Mark's guess and that should put you close enough to figure it out??????

Right country..... wrong archipelago. But you're on the right coast.

Re: San Blas --- Right Country - Right Coast - Wrong archipelago
Almost there...

Nice shot of the locks.... Spent 3 months refitting at the old Pedro Miguel Boat Club at the other end of the lake..



If you look close, you can see the Pedro Miguel lockwall in the background. Spectacular when the cruise ships would lock thru. Looked like moving cityscape at night.
