So... the Swan was the correct half?

Clue: This narrow channel cut through the reef is the entrance to this popular harbor.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I was hoping for another player.... Plenty of White Horse taverns around but this one's in St Georges, Bermuda.

Seems lots of big Swans hang out there..

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster, you are soooo right about that. When you said St George in Grenada, you were half right. This is a photo of the swan group leaving Newport RI in late November 1997 after a frigid cold front passed through the night before.
