Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Mark - I think you posted that picture on a similar thread in another forum a couple of years back and I vaguely remembered that it was in Oz, and since I've got good internet here in Deshaies and I've got to wait for the batteries to get charged I used Google and found it!

Where is this lighthouse?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

While this lighthouse is indeed located in one of the Departments of France, it isn't in the Marquesas.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It is in the Caribbean - but it could be one in St. Martin, St. Barths, Guadeloupe (including the Saintes and Marie Galante) and Martinique. Which lighthouse is it? (i.e. Obelisk, your guess was good, but you need to narrow it down a bit)

Obelisk - you are so close... just narrow it down a bit!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Delta-T - you got it! I took that picture two days ago as I sailed by; now I can update my blog with the pictures since you've guessed it. Sorry, Obelisk - I was sure you'd come in first and narrow it down, but Guadeloupe is a relatively big island with several lighthouses...

Take it away, Delta-T.
