I knew that as soon as I started to show either the buildings or the lighthouse, it wouldn't take long. The Admiral teaches a course there every other year and I just hang out and enjoy the place.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nice! I never would have gotten that one, never been there. I have been as far as Northport and I did look at some old pics and the charts to see if that could have been the place. Anyway, beautiful spot!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I had it before you posted the last pic. Found a reference to Cold Spring Harbour Light being sold to some old girl for $1.00 in 1965 or thereabouts ands she had it moved to her front law. You'd mentioned the light being moved and that first pic of the running water tied in nicely. Google earth confirmed the layout matched.

Yeah, there are several like that. Apparently all you have to do is stick a pipe in the ground.

Nice picture Andrew; really good job of photoshoping water around Ayres Rock

All I will tell you is that I found this place after googling one phrase.
