Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I have no idea where that might be, but it looks like the anchor just fell out of the sky. I am probably thinking of that because of a recent picture of a huge boulder rolling down a hill in Italy and demolishing a barn (the boulder was about house-sized) before stopping a couple of hundred feet away - next to an even bigger boulder that had rolled down several years before... some people are very, very lucky.

Here is the anchorage. That pretty red boat to the left is our former Ericson 35-3 "Cordelia" which is now in Annapolis.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

So many clues - flag, lobster pots, tidal range; it looks like a real working harbor. How many islands can there be in Maine? (hmmm... looks like quite a few according to Google Earth). Beautiful picture, though!

3166 coastal Islands in Maine, there is a list of them all in Wikipedia. Only 41 of them are permanently inhabited though. That should narrow it down.

Good point Laurence. You have narrowed it down to 41 islands and you can subtract the handgpful in Casco bay.
