Sorry I was out and only saw your post now. Yes it is about 30NM North of Cascais that is on the mouth of river Tejo. Lisboa is just some miles up river.

Take a look:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I can’t make out the first world in the foreground but the second is “Landing” – so English speaking. Lots pine trees and, bearing in mind Faster’s previous postings and location, I am thinking Pacific North West. On a river? (BTW Faster, spell check prevented you from being referred to as “Fatster” Ooops!)

Your eyes are better than mine. I cannot read that, at least not on the lap top.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK guys.... Nice work, but you two can fight over it. I was looking for Bamfield. This was the western terminus for the first transpacific communication cable laid. A delightful stop when cruising Barkley Sound and the Broken group.

Carry on!
