Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

freemantle, WA entrance to the swan river...
the strange looking building should be the maritime museum there... right?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I was still looking at his jib telltales for clues... that does look pretty good, including the green buoy seen in both pictures, we'll have to wait for confirmation but if I were in your shoes I'd be planning which picture to post

I'm in agreement with Capt. Vimes and Zanshin also. Welcome to the Forum, Capt.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

thanks zanshin and seaduction...
still waiting for confirmation, although i was already 100% sure, that that is the place even before i crosschecked it on google maps...
i have spent such good times there, mostly in the little creatures brewery just around the corner...
if someone is going to freemantle make sure you visit the mad monks brewery, which is quite in the center of the town... it is probably the only place, apart from the area around bamberg in bavaria, where you get "rauchbier" served...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

well done, Capt.
Fremantle it is. Just entering the harbour and getting ready to lower the mast to motor under the road and rail bridges just upstream.

view looking back after I've passed the maritime museum with the Leeuwin in the foreground. Pics taken on Sunday afternoon on return from Rottnest Island.
