Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I bet they do put on quite a show. If I didn't live 1500 miles away these would be my new favorite cruising grounds. Since I was also there last week I will let this one soak a few hours and give someone else the chance.

For those not from New England, this place rocks. I'm with Azzarac: let others have a chance at this.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hint time: If you have ever been in this harbor, you would say to yourself...why the f*** did they come all this way into this harbor when there are so many easier places to land? And, if you ever grew up in New England, you had a field trip here. I'm not sure they still do field trips here because the true history has come to light.

So, this one was a bit easy, shall we give thanks for the giving? Or, just another invasion by the Brits?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hint: It's part of early USA history, something about three ships?
