The two weeks on the Rock was one of the best holidays I have ever taken. I am unspeakably jealous of Mike O'Reilly for actually being able to cruise there...

So. Guess the location of this marina.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Big hill in the back, so it’s not Florida.

Weirdest marina I have ever been in. We pulled in after sunset so the next morning I headed for the beach and found it in the actual marina at the end of the docks.

You're up.

Yeah it seems to have a superlative as "largest man made marina" with over 5,000 boats that call it home. Also the second most polluted beach in the country of California! I agree, kinda weird!

Meanwhile looking for the body of water and the port seen in the distance. Bonus appreciation points if you can ID my vantage point for taking the picture!

Re: Picture Identification Game

Not big enough to be Juneau, plus no cruise ships. Sitka is flatter. Ketchican? Not sure what’s up the hill from there. We went to the town dump to look for eagles and bears, but it was too foggy to see what the view might have been.

The town's name is derived from shԍagéi, a Tlingit idiom which figuratively refers to rough seas in the Taiya Inlet, which are caused by strong north winds. Literally, shԍagéi means beautiful woman. The word is also a gerund (verbal noun), derived from the Tlingit verb theme -sha-ka-l-ԍéi, which means, in the case of a woman, to be beautiful.

The reason for its figurative meaning is that Shԍagéi is the nickname of Kanagoo, a mythical woman who transformed herself into stone at the bay there and who (according to legend) now causes the strong, channeled winds which blow. The rough seas caused by these winds have therefore been referred to by the use of Kanagoo's nickname, which is Shԍagéi or the Anglicized name it is now.

The Kanagoo stone formation is Face Mountain, which is seen from the bay. The Tlingit name for Face Mountain is Kanagoo Yahaa.

Not saying wrong or right but the request was of both place and body of water being necessary to hold the conch!

The above hint otta make that easier!

My vantage point for taking the picture was not necessary for the ID but many bonus points assigned if it can be guessed!
