absolutely correct, yes the old swan Brewery on Mounts Bay road. now it is apartments and houses an expensive restaurant.

sorry red herring with the flags. I realise you can't see the Croatian flag on the pic I posted. (It is on the stb spreader indicating courtesy to being in Croatian waters) The Panama flag at the stern indicating Panamanian registration. Turkish flag and another unidentified flag on the port spreader indicates nationalities of guests on board.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

ah, thank's laurence... i was not aware about this custom to hoist the flags of guests on board...

ok - where do you find this beautiful spot?
i know that there are a lot of those stone arcs around, but i think that this one is quite unique... it is also a very popular diving spot...


i think i have to add, that it looks slightly different now since a partial collapse in 2012, but my image is some years old...
