Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Lindbergh Bay it is. Not a particularly popular and recognizable anchorage in the Virgins for those on a charter, but a possible convenient stop enroute to/from the Spanish Virgins.

Your turn, Zanshin.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sorry about not checking back in quickly enough. Here's one of a warmer place than I'm in now!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I had a sneaking suspicion you'd guess it correctly. I didn't have my editor installed on this notebook and used a picture that I shouldn't have; after I posted I remembered that I'd already done one of Dominica but it was too late to retract.

All yours, Faster.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

If it's any consolation, Z, it's -9C here right now... record cold for the date for Vancouver.

Here's a warmer day... not quite so far away. Looking SE'

Sea gave a lot of clues, so in my guess I would say Tribune Bay, Hornby Island, BC

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

Don't see Sea's clues,(?) but you got it. Terrific spot in summer as long as it doesn't blow SE.. Totally open and a long shallow beach makes for a very uncomfortable anchorage.



You're up, DJL.. well done.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm sorry, I'm drinking too much, end of year is coming and december is a all round party... Faster did the clues, looking SE, near Vancouver, a beach with sand, grass, and lots of sailing boats...,I'm still dizzy...
