Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

PCP has it, allowing for a typo. It's Waterlemon Bay in the foreground within the larger context of Leinster Bay. The sandy area is attached to Waterlemon Cay, a great snorkeling spot. Off to the left you can barely make out the gray structures that are part of the ruins of the Annaberg sugar plantation, which is worth a visit.

This area is within the US Virgin Island park system and includes hiking trails connecting to the rest of St. John. There is a lot of history on this island, including the slave rebellion in the 18th century.

Your turn, PCP.

Yes. Med. That's a very good anchorage with a lot of wind and sea protection from all sides except one. Both pictures were taken from my boat, the first one to the bow this one to the opposite side.
