Re: Picture Identification Game

I’ll never go back. Got stuck in the “marina” with a surge running. Holy Moly, six dock lines and the boat was still moving 6 feet! Wrecked my lines.

We did until we hit DR, we motored across the Mona and then had glassy seas on the PR south coast. About time too.

But the picture was taken the year before, that year we just did the Bahamas.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Google is your friend when you ask the right questions. Spent the last hour or so looking up different options and thought this might be interesting:
When this schooner’s namesake was busy sailing around the Isle of Wight, boats about the same size (though perhaps not as fast) were carrying onions named for this town from the warehouses that lined the shore here. Two of the old brick warehouses have been reconfigured as yacht club facilities. The tonnage shipped made it one of the biggest ports between New York and Boston, garnering it a Federally dredged channel. The onion seed and sets are still available from specialty seed outlets. They’re tasty and store very well. Transient moorings are available through the yacht club.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Suddenly can't open the last thumbnail again. No idea why some work and others don't.

Re: Picture Identification Game

I could get the thumbnail to open by trying it twice. The thumbnail gave me just as many clues (zero) as did the picture, so I'll be on the sidelines for this one

Re: Picture Identification Game

Will try posting a smaller jpg here. Google may be more helpful than the photo. British burned the town in 1779.
