The lamp posts looks very Parisian - I think you might be correct.

Damn I'm getting senile - That's the South Bank of the Thames.
Not sure what all the Pink & Blue sand is about.

Originally a fishing village, this is the port entrance, looking out. It has a twice daily car/passenger ferry service to a nearby country. I'll try to dig out a picture of the village which is much prettier.

While not England, it is the land of my father.
While not as far north as Scandinavia, the name is of Norse origin.
While not Dunkirk, I suspect the residents would rather be mistaken for French than English.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I can't get into photobucket for some reason so if anyone wants to repost this.....

This is the old fishing village. The pleasure boat mooring field is just out of frame.

I'll have intermittent web access over the weekend so if you are sure you have it, please don't wait for me to confirm.
