Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oopsie - you are correct, it must be either color blindness or dsylexia setting in! The inside view looks a bit like Jolly Harbour on Antigua but the sun is setting in the wrong quadrant and I don't recall concrete blocks, either. I'll have to wait for another hint or watch someone else take off with the prize.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's not Jolly Harbour, which is much cheaper to clear into than Nelson's Dockyard cos you don't pay the National Park fees.
It's not Antigua.
It is IALA B but its not Japan.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Puerto Rica perhaps ? Not sure but maybe San Juan.

I think not San Juan ... far to big a port, but still maybe Puerto Rica ?

Ok, this is the only cruising marina of a capital city.

I already have.

America's, not South America.

Speaks not English, so probably not Canada. What's the official language in USA?
what language is Oficina Del Puerto

It's the only cruising destination for a Captial City.

The entrance channel is as bad as it looks "if you survive..."
