Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Somehow the rocky islands and double-wides make me think of the USVI - is that in the right area?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The large building certainly looks like the Frenchman's Reef Hotel, so the bay would be cruz bay or long bay. Its been many years since I stayed at that hotel and sailed out of St. Thomas Harbour.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Seaduction and Zanshin are in the right neighborhood, but haven't identified the bay yet. FWIW, Frenchman's Reef hotel is on Morningstar Bay, St Thomas. Cruz Bay in on St John and the Long Bay I know in the general area is on Tortola.

Thank You, I stand corrected, but still prone to errors....I'll blame that on meds, and old age
So, that building on the right edge of the photo isn't the frenchmans reef hotel?

Not Bolongo Bay. You are too far east.
