Hey, I'm back online. Sort of.

Don't think it's right, but Ocracoke?

Key West?
Edit:
Nope, compared to photos in my house, don’t think it is Bone Island - but close

Both good guesses clapping

One guess the latitude is too far north
One guess the latitude is too far south

Both guesses the longitude if too far west
of course one more than other....

Surfs Up! clapping

I wonder how the waves are today

That would be the lighthouse
Rincon is touted as one, if not the best, surfing location in the Caribbean.
Surfing World Championships have been held there in the past.

My wife and I lived about 10 miles from the lighthouse back in the 70s.
This picture taken about 8 years ago

jphart has the honors... where are we headed now?

You were quick to catch the flag hint. Indeed the railing is visible.
Reef is in view and over 1800 feet deep.
Now, from where are you gazing, and at what settlement?

I did not catch any hint... It was purely a guess.

I have never been to the Bahamas except to fly over in a Coast Guard Aircraft on a search or land and medivac some tourist who did something stupid or had an unfortunate illness or accident.

It just looked like the Bahamas so that is what I guessed.

Hopetown - Elbow Cay I believe. Unfortunately massive destruction in the area from Hurrican Dorian but the lighthouse is still standing. Will pass my turn on more photos but wanted to guess!

BVIhockey, you got it!

Sailing guide:
From the waypoint HPTWN named for this destination, head toward Eagle's Rock. When the narrow concrete road is straight, turn and head directly bearing 149° as though you were going to drive onto it. Turn to starboard and proceed into this harbor.

I’d think Mike and BEERMAN have traversed that course and into this harbor.

Good memory JP! I don't remember seeing a light house in the distance when we motored through man-o-war cut, it was nighttime, raining and..... I was kinda busy on the bow with a flood light looking down!!!! We stayed at Abaco Beach Resort. Wonder how it recovered after the storms??

Here’s the famous Hopetown lighthouse, Harbour and Atlantic Ocean. We sailed here five years ago, and two years ago rented a house on White sound across the street from the Abaco Inn. I hear they are making progress in the Abacos. Approach guidelines are from Dodge sailing guide.

Three coins in the fountain one of the clues?
Didn’t look it up. Stayed at the Trivi hotel across the street in 2009.
Gotta find a pix, running out, as I lost a hard drive 10 years ago

OK, you can't use an HTML location. It has to be a jpeg. If it is a jpeg, you can upload it to the TTOL Photo Gallery. If you need more instructions, PM me..
