Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks like Capt Len had the right island, but didn't specifically declare it. Perhaps he could name the cove with the docking pod in the photo if you need that level of detail.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm happy to let Len have it.. you're right, he did name 'DeCourcy' island.. I was after the park/cove itself. The Paulo hint was supposed to clinch it.

He's baffled by we North Americans' celebrations of 'Pirates'...

This is Pirate's Cove Marine park, tucked into a nook on the infamous Brother XII's island enclave.




OK Capt Len - you're next.

Taking a rainchek, OK? I'm wandering the beaches of Thailand for the winter and nearly computer illiterate.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'll be facetious and say that it is the slums of Monaco; but I know it isn't. Is this picture taken in Italy?
