Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster - the second one gave it away in a hurry for me, I recognized those tires on the dock immediately, and with that location in mind I also placed the first picture - I've stood in that exact location a couple of times, and had drinks in both locations pictured. I'm in Maho Bay right now and have a spotty and very, very slow internet connection so cannot upload a new picture.
So I won't divulge the location until I can post a new picture and if someone else recognizes the location before that time, then they should name the place you are looking for and post a new one.

However, it can rain as well as anywhere in the PNW!

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....

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!

.. or Ten Pound Bay off Green Island? (Also Antigua)

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?
