Yes for Italy, now for chimney. That is solid stone.

Faster: Where do you see an Italian flag?

Edit: I see it
The thing you are calling an Island is not an Island but a break water.

Just thought I'd bring that to your attention.
Hummmm! Andrew, watch your Geography Corsega is French, that's where Napoleon was born.

So, Sardinia it is

I don't know what that black boat is except that is big and ugly. LOL

Yes , Sardinia and a famous port/marina.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Another hint cause I have to go to bed

That was one of the best natural ports on the Island that in the late 60's was transformed in a marina, with that break water that was already mentioned.

I was there for a coffee and a snack but the boat stayed out. In the summer my boat would pay there over 200 euros a day

And in what regards to find the place in the net by photos, that stone mark on the end of the break water is very difficult to find, the shape from the air is quite distinct but difficult to guess from the photos. I would try to look at the houses and that hill behind as the most distinctive points...and of course, this is a hot place in the summer specially for the rich ones.

You are very close, it is the other hot spot for the jetset. This one was even a better protected big cove, kind of a round one.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

By the way, it seems you guys don't speak Italian

You know, Sardinia is an interesting place and they have maintained the old languages. So on the western part of the Island they still talk a language that is derived from the old Aragonese that later give the Catalan. Aragon had dominated that part of the Island for centuries. Even the Architecture and colors are very similar.

On the other part of the Island the native language is something that is much more close to ancient Roman (Latin) than to modern Italian.

A very Interesting Island, with very good beer and excellent but expensive wine. Good goat cheese too.

No, why I am telling you guys that you probably dont speak Italian? After all the English word is not very different

No, Oristano is big this is a small round natural port that was transformed with little alterations in a very expensive private marina. The very small and incredible exclusive village did not even exist before the 60's.

This is much more exclusive place than Oristano or than anywhere else in the Island. The place was entirely designed by an Italian architect in the 60's.

Even Berlusconi had an house here.
