Nicest bridge operators on the ICW!!!

Its an open on demand and when I was coming up to it and rang on the VHF the guy said just come up up and he would opening it at the right time... I never even slowed down and it was already closing 10 feet after I was clear. The cntroller for a smiling and fun. A great experience! Especially compared to some just north of Fort lauderdale.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oh Faster, that is too easy... but I don't have access to my notebook to get a new picture posted.... and I'm breaking my own suggestion about not posting "I know where that is, but won't tell", too.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster - that is the poster for the rates at English Harbour in Antigua, the picture is of the main docks taken from high above in a heli. I wish those were the dockage rates, though - but those are mooring rates in English and Falmouth harbours. I hope to be there in a couple of weeks and can check if the rates have changed

I'm not even going to wait for an affirmation. I have vacationed here before, it is quite nice and I've sailed hobies out in the waters:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Are the dunes a new contest picture?
If so, I guess (much to Zanshin's dismay): Tottori-sakyu Sand Dunes, located in the eastern Tottori, are the largest sand hills in Japan. They are 16 kilometers long from east to west and 2 kilometers wide from north to south. Volcanic ash from Mt. Daisen settled on the sand of the Sendai-gawa River, and the ocean winds that blew from the rough Sea of Japan formed the dunes over a period of almost 100,000 years.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I jsut realized that I won't have internet access this weekend and returned to the thread to see what I could do to move it along, since I thought that the Tottori dunes were pretty much unknown and I'd be getting African guesses. I don't know how Seaduction guessed it correctly so quickly. But I spent summer vacations there in my youth, those dunes and beaches would be full of people one day, and then empty the next because the official "beach" season had ended. Our school always went out there on the day _after_ the end-of-season so we had the whole place almost to ourselves.

All yours Seaduction.

Looks like it hasn't been painted since this photo was taken in 1996.
funny me, I tough you were waiting for the ebb to cross de bridge, but it didn't make sense. Now reading a third time, you are waiting for EBS, to keep the game going.
Not drinking this time.

16km long from east to west? doesn't look like that in G/E
