I think you got it, Smurph.... Ocean House would be the large building on the hill....

Smurphny made short work of my post. Here's a better view of the completely rebuilt Ocean House, looking north past East Beach.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

One of my favorite routes is to anchor in back of Fisher's for the night and sail out past Watch Hill on my way to Newport or the islands. So I recognized it immediately. Here's a hint for the pic I posted: It's opposite a famous research facility. It's morning.

Hmm...I don't recognize the spot in the photo, but could you be hinting at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) or Woods Hole?

Getting close. Just across from one of those.
The boat was anchored in_______________Harbor.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'd plump for Woods Hole as the institute. Cannot find that cardinal on a rock but it would appear boat is anchored in Hadley Harbour looking out. Doesn't seem built up enough to be Yorktown.
