Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Winner!

Deadliest catch is the tv show. The Forgotten Battle is the Aleutian Island Campaign when the Japanese invaded America in WWII. It was overshadowed by the Guadalcanal campaign. If memory serves me correct, the island is Adak.

The tv show gives a pretty good feel for it, so after 1year of fishing there in that hell, 3 broken ribs, 1 chipped tooth, and several years of joint pain later, l am a confirmed fair weather sailor. If there ain't palm trees, it ain't for me, yet l live in Norway. Ah, ain't love grand.

Back to you Ulladh...

Sydney, Nova Scottia. Body of water is Sydeny Harbour and the Sydney river.

I wish those Canadians would stop stealing our names!

Not Japan. The body of water is a major shipping channel.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not Havre de Grace MD, the Susquehanna is not as wide as this body of water and not a major shipping channel.
The C&D is also not as wide and probably not as much shipping as this location.
