Would that happen to be Montauk, NY?

Azzarac, you got it! Your turn to post.

Some trivia: the Montauk light is further east than the lighthouse at Watch Hill, RI.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK! I hope this isn't too easy. Since we are on a light house theme; when is a lighthouse not a lighthouse but still a "beacon"?

C'mon Seaduction! You can do this! Obviously you know the answer. What and where is it?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hmm... I didn't figure this one would last more than 10 minutes. OK, another hint: 10 miles down the southern coast you will encounter another piece of history on the beach. You can still see part of the mast sticking out of the sand of this 285' 2075 ton behemoth.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I checked yachtworld for that boat and couldn't find it, it must have already sold. But since the water is on the left-hand side of the picture I will assume that we are on the Pacific coast of North America.

p.s. That first picture was taken at 22:00 and there's enough light to photograph, so we must be in very high latitudes, too
