Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Zanshin.. your map link is not Ten Pound Bay after all.. going counter clockwise around Green Island from your location, the next bay is 'Rickets' (or 'Rickerts'?), and then the double lobed shallow bay east of that is Ten Pound Bay. Not sure of the local name of 'your' bay.

Anyhow we were close, so I'll carry on....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Mark narrowed it down to Antigua - and I just sailed from where the picture was taken to an anchorage right next to Five Island Bay (Deep Bay). So we'll give him honorable mention.

Faster, on the other, correctly identified the pictures as having been taken on Green Island and now I know that it is called Ten Pound Bay

Google Maps link to location

All yours, Faster!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oh? So those houses are on the main island, not the one from which the pic is taken?

Then I am thinking Antigua. In Five Islands Bay theres a small island, unnamed in Hanson Bay.

T'would it be dat one?

Hint 4 - this island is small and uninhabited and just a 4-iron away from the main island, which is much larger and definitely inhabited. The natives speak English.

Hint 2 - No, it is not in the BVI
Hint 3 - Slightly different angle from same position that the first photograph was taken.

No offense taken. Keeping the thread moving isn't such a bad idea when experienced posters like Zanshin engage.

Meanwhile, Zanshin's photo looks like the Caribbean, possibly Little Harbor, Peter Island, looking toward Tortola?

Hint 1: These are warm salty waters

Sorry for being the instigator. There was no disrespect intended. I'm not too far from the canal and would also very much like to visit it.

fallard - I didn't mean to steal your thunder, sorry! I should add that I did research the locks on the internet and, should Zanshin someday make it to Scotland, I'll get to see them myself.
