Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I was on my iPhone with a quick response to the last location and I don't mean to interrupt the sequence but I would like to say something about La Conner, the area and the people. I brought a boat up north from Olympia and came through this long narrow channel into La Conner. I must say, I really enjoyed La Conner. It was great to see erps again and he gave me a great tour of Skaggit County. I must say it is a very interesting place to say the least. They have lot's of float space right next to the historic main street with all kinds of old pubs and other interesting nooks and crannies to investigate.

This is the newly purchased boat we brought up...it was a good trip with no major issues. On the opposite side you can see the native reserve with the traditional hat shaped shelters where they hold various functions.







These are the bridges including a swing railway bridge at the north end of the channel. It's quite shallow at the top and bottom of the channel but it's well marked and a pleasant diversion. A bit further north we stopped overnight at Blakely Island and had a great visit and fantastic meal with JRD22 (John and Laurie) and I got to drive Laurie's Skegway. Washington is a great place!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks like PCP has it: It has to be the tower near la Mola at Mahon harbor.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not sure, but it could be alright.. pretty nasty posting a seriously blurred GE area - is it still a sensitive military installation?

Faster: Zoom in to the west of the blurry area and you can pick out the round tower and the distinctive outline of la Mola.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Paulo it is .... entrance to Mahon port

Fast ... hasn't really been all that sensitive since Nelson traded it for Gibraltar.

Fallard it seems that it is your turn. I said Minorca and I was waiting for a reply to say Mahon, you were faster. I guess that being in Europe give me a disadvantage: You are winning when I am sleeping

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

PCP is being too gracious. I would still be looking if it weren't for the reference to Minorca. Well here goes. We are on an island in New England.
