Re: Picture Identification Game

Looks like one of the Eastern ranges. I will go with the Green Mountains, New Hampshire?

I mistagged my response: should have mentioned it was SanderO’s—not Tempest’s—photo of the North Light. The historical reference to bovines is that the water in the photo is Cow Cove, where the first European settlers landed on Block Island, offloading livestock there.

Re: Picture Identification Game

There really aren't many "rules" for this thread, but since this is a sailing oriented site and not a ski site or travel site, that picture is most certainly an invalid one. I'll assert rank for this thread and post a picture of a sailing location:

Re: Picture Identification Game

Tempest - I chose Helgoland as I thought that would be a quick way to get someone else to post a new picture, but I didn't expect that to go quite as quickly. Helgoland, the island the British tried to bomb out of existence with one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions in history. The island is still there. Helgoland. All yours, tempest!

Not as an Exotic Location and not my photo, though I've passed it many times. Even Zanshin may have seen this one. ( Hint) It's initials are like a familiar candy.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Yes, I agree with Zanshin.

Please keep it to sailing / cruising areas that you've been to, would like to go, would be kewl to go to etc etc etc.

Water must be wet, fluid, horizontal and boatable.

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know
