Welcome to the thread Yes Europe it is. while in this bay this lovely schooner came in and dropped the hook beside us. They had their lunch and departed after a few hours. Check out the flags worn on this vessel.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

LaurenceU: Europe was already acknowledged and the sailcover in the foreground certainly implied the Adriatic. The second boat beyond that seemed to have Sunsail colors (e.g., red sun cover on the genoa) which pointed to the cruising grounds near Dubrovnik (Sunsail's Adriatic base). Then it was a matter of checking Google Earth for harbors that weren't very built up and then drilling down on photos posted until the buildings on shore matched. It didn't take all that long.

Next challenge: This fountain is located by a famous harbor. Name the harbor and--if you can--the name of the fountain.

well done. it's on the Island of Mjet, about 4 hours sail from Dubrovnik.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Perth at the swan river just under kings park on mounts bay road...
The building was a brewery - swan brewery? - if i am not mistaken, but i have no clue what it is now or called...
Google earth says that there is a multiplex and a cafe in, but it looks very much like a hotel...
