Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was certainly one of the reasons. I did a Google of "catamaran Drako" and she certainly hails from Cuba though I'm not sure which marina that is. Doesn't seem to match Hemingway.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

there is a whole fleet of those catamarans in that image and i could only find some of them in a marina named "varadera"...
but it cannot be the right one because in seductions image the cats lie both sides of the pier...
check out google earth and look at the images posted to that spot:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sam,
I saw that as well but as you say they don't match. I'm having a stab and going with Hemingway.

(that cat seems to pop up all over. Found her at Cayo Largo as well but the marina there doesn't look big enough.)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ha .... it was failing to find that bloody tower that kept me away from Varadera.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

andrew - the video just hinted cuba in the text to it, but wouldn't have give any further clues...
tdw - ‘Life in this world, is, as it were, a sojourn in a cave. What can we know of reality? For all we see of the true nature of existence is, shall we say, no more than bewildering and amusing shadows cast upon the inner wall of the cave by the unseen blinding light of absolute truth, from which we may or may not deduce some glimmer of veracity, and we as troglodyte seekers of wisdom can only lift our voices to the unseen and say humbly, “Go on, do Deformed Rabbit... it’s my favourite.“'

Just woke up and smelled the coffee, then saw that Captain Vimes has nailed the location correctly as Veradero, Cuba. Sorry about the 'giveaway' that arose from the catamaran Drako video. Your turn now, Cap'n.
