Nevis? Not certain, you normally see Nevis from the St Kitts point of view.

I don't remember Etna coming up before. Fred may not know if it did, he started late.

Carol - I agree about the pizza and it was the best. I did not go to the top of Aetna or Vesuvius, but I did take this picture at the top of ? You hike up late day and watch the "fireworks" after dark. I only show these recent college graduates to show their attire as a clue - especially the helmets.

I'll let this go until Google time before giving an easy clue.

Got it now, I think. Of course it isn't Etna, that's on the rather large island of Sicily. So, these photos must be Stromboli?

Thanks Fred. Stromboli can be really impressive at times. We were on holiday in the south of Sardinia and one evening could hear these tremendous explosions. When asking the hotel staff where they were coming from they said Stromboli. I couldn't believe it as it is nearly 300 miles but they had no reason to lie so I suppose it must have been true.

Now to find a photo...

You have to be really precise on the location of this one. Not quite as precise as 'the bow of Jeannius' but not just the general area.

Appears to be an American flag and some tall buildings in the far background so a wild guess is on the outskirts of New York City.

Close Fred. I knew it wouldn't be long before someone recognised NYC. That's why I want a bit more grin

Another view of the same location...

Hi. IF that is confirmed as the correct answer, please start a new thread.

Thanks!

No, sorry. Can't believe the only person who's been to this place in NYC is a Brit!

Right there in Manhattan, a city owned marina. The only place you can park your boat for less than about $1000/night,

I live within a few miles of this location, on the Jersey side, but I'm just not familiar with the marina. Is that the 79th Street Boat Basin? The tall cylindrical building in the background is called Stonehenge.

That's it Dan. The winner.

A really great place right there in Manhattan where 6 of of us stayed for around $100/night. It's gone up a but since we stayed but still only $3.50/foot/night. Must be the cheapest way to stay in Manhattan... https://www.nycgovparks.org/facilities/marinas/10

Good one Mike! Kinda funny that I've never been there, so I had to rely on the background.

I'll start a new thread.
