Re: Picture Identification Game

Dominica it is! The anchorage is Portsmouth and those red buildings are Fort Shirley

When each person gets a go then we should consider this and make some in different regions, if we can.


I also think people love to see great pics of places they havent been yet.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Dave I hear ya.... I put in Shelter Island and then Camden Maine... I don't have digital images from sailing it was back in the film era... of the last millennium.

By the way my last guess before being scolded was Dominica.., Buildings look substantial and an old fort would make sense. The sun gives a clue too. I believe down on the south... Didn't have plotters to distract in those days.... so we looked around ;-). Who remembers a plotter screen?


Not bad memory I suppose but I can't remember where I sailed this summer. Go figure.

Game is interesting if there are good clues in the images... and some tell which can be used to nail the location.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Totally understand and agree. All those posted except Sander have been outside the US. They are fascinating. I’m lucky as I’ve been to some of them.

I’m not be critical just making an observation. Would be nice to see where other US sailors keep their boats and pictures from their cruising areas. It will also “ get to see pics of places they haven’t been yet” but may be attainable as they are close by😀

NOPE! Sailnet is NOT a USA only forum. Its not even owned in the USA.

Half the Moderators are not from the USA.

Many members who sail in *any* specific country have, or wish to, sail in other countries.

So lets be real. If you, or anyone don't know where the photo is taken then check back when theres a new photo


Last thread we played this game I posted one pricture of a place I have never been and I can assure you no other member has ever been, but it was solved in under 24 hours by some brilliant detective work. It was Walvis Bay, Namibia....

So, lets not make this NE USA only thread, but try to be diverse in our photos form everywhere and places we may only dream about


Merci Beaucoup

Mark,

I said I was only making a recommendation. Obviously stuck in your craw with you needing to explain how many mods were not from USA nor was SN from USA . I don’t see where that’s pertinent. If recommendations are met with such pushback no one will make them. Suggestions are just that suggestions. Intolerance of suggestions suggests that the diversity you spoke of does-not exist unless it conforms to your model.

I am especially surprised to see a neutral moderator with the huge pushback to a recommendation but there’s no rule they need to be neutral.

It’s ok. No need to respond to me again . I don’t want to detract from this. I don’t need to participate in it.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Didn't seem rocky enough for Nova Scotia, but that's guess #2 (which officially includes Cape Brenton)
