Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes the bridge is The Spit .... now on to the location .....

(With Mark having popped in I fear the truth will out very soon. .... )

Interestingly enough this cove (we call them bays) was out of bounds to visitors until only a few decades back and the land to the right with the buildings still is.

Confusion reigns.

Check back to my original pic. The pic of the Spit Bridge was a hint not the clue itself. You are looking for this place .....

I knew you'd get it.

Bantry Bay it is indeed. Convict era.

Fabulous place to while away a weekend.

Correction .... it wasn't convict era at all. Was originally built in 1907. Used until 1973. The shore is still closed to the public, supposedly due to unexploded munitions, though this is probably BS. I went on shore here in the late 1970s, middle of the night, bit spooky.
