Re: Picture Identification Game

Alright, maybe I didn't include enough clues in the pic, although, I think some may recognise it from their travels. This sign is a good clue, it's taken about 20-30 feet from the dock I was standing on. That's my boat on the beach.

Edit: the sign says: Caution, crocodiles in area. No swimming.

Re: Picture Identification Game

I was hopeful that the area code in the telephone number on the sign might narrow things down, but then realized it was a toll-free number. Pretty strong winds according to the dock picture and the froth on the beach in the second, and not much tidal range - but those clues don't narrow it down enough for me.

Dock
Re: Picture Identification Game

It looks very open to have a boat tied up there.
Notice the direction of the wind is from the shore? It must *always* be from the shore or the waves from that fetch would make the Dock untenable.

These photos always have more clues than we first see.

Re: Picture Identification Game

@SanderO is close enough It's actually Key Largo, but I would have accepted Florida Keys or Florida Bay.

Regarding the sign. American Saltwater Crocodiles have a very small range in the US. Just a handful of counties in South Florida.

This is the finish Line of the Everglades challenge. The pic was a screenshot I took from a video clip. It has a nice mix of extreme shoal draft racers.

I guess SanderO is up?

Re: Picture Identification Game

I guess Arcb needs a better camera. I tried to read the hailing ports from the transoms.
