Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Fire away.. of course it was Ucluelet.. The ship is nicely maintained and preserved, but not mobile. It's part of the accommodation and restaurants of a busy fishing lodge. The boats alongside are the ones that make the runs 20-30 miles offshore each morning around 5 am for a day of fishing. Mostly successful too.

It's the best provisioning spot in the Broken Group/Barkley Sound. Best breakfast at a civilized hour is in the local bowling alley! The Canadian Princess serves brekkie 4-6 am...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You'll have some time to ponder my pic ... We are landlocked this weekend so the Wombet desires to lunch, which presumably entails a drop or ten to go with the comestables .... oh lordy my poor ailing liver !!

Clue requests better be quick.

Mark, I presume you mean Crowdy Head ? but no its not.

Its a lovely spot but not often visited by yachts. While its a fine anchorage in a southerly not many folk running up the NSW coast want to stop if by some wondrous chance you have sou easter at your back. In a nor easter its a cow of a place. Nonetheless one of very few open roadstead anchorages on the NSW coast.

Edit: Or is it??

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, that's what I meant but the iPad changes words. Stupid kids toy!

The only open road stead on the north coast is Byron bay.... But the photo is not Byron bay.

Evans head?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The rocky outcrop is Statis Rock, the beach in the foreground is Boat Beach, the rocks to the right are Seal Rocks and the road behind the beach is Kinka Road. If the peninsular has a name, I can't find it. - I just found reference to Sugar Loaf Point holiday accommodation, so maybe Sugar Loaf Point??

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The lighthouse by the resort is listed as Sugarloaf Point. Looks like Geoff54 nailed it, while we wait for tdw to confirm.
