Not Fowey and not in the UK, but you are getting close.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

While I've got no clue as where this could be, could you please be a bit meaner to Mark when telling him he was absolutely, positively and incontrovertibly WRONG in his guess. You might want to stress that he has absolutely no idea of where that photo was taken. He didn't even get the island or country right, you might want to subtly point that out to him as well, preferably with all caps, and in at least a 22pt red bold font.... Just saying...

Could we be on the Atlantic French coast here?

I think it may be in northern Japan. Oh, no, how could I be so stupid. Its definitely somewhere in Ireland. I can tell by the green fields and stone fence rows in the background. Perhaps County Mayo?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not France and not Northern Ireland, but you are not far away--ignoring the reference to Japan, of course. This place has a Caribbean connection that sailors can relate to, especially for those of us who have used Imray-Iolare charts.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fallard - that was an awesome hint. Was it the HMS Iolaire part?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well it doesnt help me.

Half the Caribbean is named after places in Europe. You'd think they bloody discovered it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The location in the photo does not share a name with anywhere in the Caribbean--at least that I know of.

Zanshin's getting closer to the connection, but it isn't about HMS Iolare, which was sunk about a hundred years ago. The Imray-Iolare connection is very current.

Another clue: When I was there about 20+ years ago, there was a photo of the Pride of Baltimore on the wall of the establishment to the left in the photo. (This may not help you identify the locale, but at that time, the Pride of Baltimore had been lost at sea, taking with her a young lady crew member who had lived about 200 ft down my street.)
