Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Too easy but we've got some friends coming to the boat so I'll be off line for the rest of the day at least. Figured I should give you a sitter.

(still confused as to how Matt cheated)

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We posted at the same time. I think Andrew took off before he saw my explanation.

Faster is it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Tell me when the locals don't need to hold off.

And how local is local?

Can I chuck in an answer if its further than how far from we're I used to live?

Or perhaps never been there and haven't googled it?

Actually I better not win as I don't have a photo ready

Yeah... that's where I am, actually.. out of good shots. This is pretty easy, as tdw alluded to, esp if you're a regular here..

.. but I don't think you'd be considered a 'local' in this case, Mark! - of course maybe you were here but just don't remember,....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The trees look North American to me. Though I haven't seen the Franklin, so I'm not saying it isn't the Franklin R.

But faster wrote 'river' in scare quotes, so maybe it's not a river. A tidal inlet?
