How the hell did you get that???

Spot on.

The town where Christopher Columbus grew up.

I was worried the words in the photo were too blurry.

Near Porto Fino. St Marghareta has a great free anchorage. Perfect to leave the boat and go visit Piza or Rome.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK... this one's kind of easy but perhaps 'generic' enough to pose a bit of a guessing game...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

am i going nuts?


studying biology to guess a harbour...

in fact it's the Agave Angustiflora...



but it doesn't help much, since it is spreaded through mexico and most of the caribbean.
back to the photo.

Yeah, but you'll need to narrow it down a bit

This might help... or not....

Bequia it is. Port Elizabeth is the harbour.. wonderful spot. The ruins are 'Moonhole', a failed resort.

You're up Hthoni... but it's way late in the east and getting later here so it will be quiet for a while.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

ok, let's try a tricky image. it looks like caribbean, but it's elsewhere.
this one will need some hints.



it's Brazil, it can be reached by car, and it's a marvelous diving spot.
