Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not Bahamas... The Frigate Bird colony is quite well known. This island is difficult to visit if swell is running high. The anchorage is very shallow and the reef is too. Not a cruise ship stop, very low population.

Hum : Magnificent frigatebirds live along American, tropical coastlines. They breed as far north as 25 degrees north latitude in Mexico and Florida and as far south 27 degrees south latitude in Brazil. They are especially common in southern Florida, the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean islands and the west coast of Mexico.

That is a lot of ground

It is a Caribbean Island?

Forget last post:

Barbuda: low bay/West Coast beach?

It has not a name on Google earth, so let's call it West coast Barbuda.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok, an easy one from a great place. Historic town, very sheltered place, very good holding, lots of wind at night.

A view of the fortress that surrounds the town



A view from the boat (at anchor) to the town at night. On top the yellow lights is the fortress that after surrounding the town goes up, like a China mini great wall and surrounds the mountains too.



A view to the town from the other side of the bay:
