Ok World Travelers we cannot travel... And that Sucks.

So let us share a picture and take a trip virtually.
I am posting the first picture.
If you guess where it is you get to post the next picture.
Only one picture at a time.

So the first one is for all you sailors...
Make your guess and I will respond yeah or nay!
And if hints are need I will add when appropriate

What port are are these beautiful channel markers located?

Sleepychef is correct...

That did not take long at all.
I hope you have seen it or read about the entrance instead of using Google.

A very special day we crossed through that entrance.

Sleepychef your turn to post the next picture.
You have 24 hours to post

Thanks so much for joining in so quickly.

Totally understand sleepychef on the pics.
Carol probably knows exactly where it is, but Beerman did a great post on how to upload pictures.
We would love to see some pics of your adventures.

Ok travelers
The game is open! First person to post has the thread.
Remember one picture at a time
Anywhere in the World!
It must be your picture
And we usually wait 24 hours before giving hints.

Next?

TravelHat, is it the old hotel in Martha's Vineyard? Oh and I see Ron Silverman in the back there, off of the show, Parks and Recreation. Lol, but it looks a lot like him.

Your right Tom, it is on SXM, so I guess that counts! I really can’t believe folks didn’t get this sooner. It was taken sitting at BUGBYS looking out across Dawn Beach.

We have been to SXM 5 or 6 times since 1995, but to Dawn Beach only once.
That was in 2002
You are generous to give it to me...
Let me take a second to get the next one up

BTW - TravelHat that was my second choice - First choice was the guy on the far left

SXMFox--No, not Bugby's. I think the spelling was Busby's. Never a big fan of Dawn Beach, so that's why I didn't get it.

Well Carol one of the things I did photoshop out was the last line

ERECT. CI)I)CCLXXV

It looks like Roman Numerals but it is a style used by book printers when mass production first began

CI) = Roman Numeral M
I) = Roman Numeral D
The rest are the same

Hint #2

If you deciphered the number above you know the year.

The color of the edifice matters.
It is associated with family or should I say dynasty.
Today when you visit that country and see that color you know someone of importance lived there.
It is even the the color on the Brazilian Flag

JOSEPHO II. AVGVSTO ET MARIA THERESIA IMPERANTIB. ERECT. CI)I)CCLXXV, that’s what you photo shopped.

Schönbrunn Gloriette , Wien ,Austria

That was too easy Tom, but I’ll pass the torch along to someone else.

No, SXMFOX you did guess correct...

We just had a wonderful dinner with wine from Bandol, visited some friends for some BS time (social distancing of course) and wonderful Friday Evening. I am a little slow in response.

The yellow color is Schönbrunner Gelb or some may say it the yellow of the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy.
Which is also the same yellow of the Papal State and the yellow on the Brazil flag.

The Gloriette as you identified sits a top a hill overlooking Vienna (Wien)
The roof is flat and offers a great view of the city or over the forest in the other direction
The ladies, back in the day, waited their for the emperor and his party to return from hunting for lunch in the Gloriette.
Stunning views from the roof.

SXMFOX it is your call - but you deserve to post the next photo. If you do not by 1400 EST the board is open.

If you have not been to Vienna - Here is a view of the city and the Schönbrunner Palace from the roof of the Gloriette.

As my father would say... Those are adequate quarters!

It is written on the front of it.

There use to be a Current Events page 15 years ago on TTOL where we would a discuss things happening around us.
Carol had to shut it down because it got way too personal.

TravelHat - would love for you to post something that is not going to piss off half the membership and make the other half go yeee hah....

The Pineapple Fountain in Charleston would be much more along the lines of the game...
Plus it does not have the city name on the front of it.

You got any other pics?

I am guessing you have taken us to the British Isles?
Now the hard work begins. There must be 1000 Castles!

Are there any TTOL Brits or British travelers out there?

And then I could be totally wrong at it is a castle on the Rhine...
I just cannot see the flag well enough in the background
