Any chance it's in the western Caribbean? I'm thinking Isla Mujeres.

That's how I tell them apart sometimes, but that middle one in the pic with the tail down is messing with us!!! and agree that flat looks like St Kitts///

Nice picture. I’m going New Zealand. Based on English words and the penguins in the window.

Not South Africa or New Zealand. I know at least two TTOL members who will have seen this place but they may not be playing the game. No clues as yet. grin

With a name like "Angelique" I'd wager a French place, but that doesn't jibe with the penguins in the window... I'll hazard a wild guess of somewhere in the Marquesas?

Cancel that - I couldn't wait and googled it because I was so intrigued. Hence I've disqualified myself from guessing this picture and my responses and questions should be ignored smile

Yes there are some 'mis-directions' in the photo devil

I wish I'd chosen another location for today... I'm watching the Tour de France and today's stage finishes in a ski resort I've been to a couple of times. Should have used a photo from there.

Zanshin... Just been looking at your stuff on GitHub... We have some old programming languages in common F77 and PL/1. Did a lot of Intel Assembler as well back in the day. Although I'm officially retired I still write stuff in C and it's later derivatives as and when someone pays me.

it is the sign that has me confused on the side of the building.
He has a seal and the word "Indefatigable" which was a British Battleship sank at the battle of Jutland...

But the surroundings do not look like the north Atlantic...

So my daughter totally disdains science... But for her degree she had to take a course in the BS world...
She went to Elon University in NC, which year after year rates number 1 in study abroad programs.
So a mini-semester course was the plan in science
To get her through the requirement she lived on a 82 foot in the Galapagos Islands for a month.
When she returned home she had a C which was all that was required.

So my daughter and Lonesome George guess the Galapagos (2005)
(which explains the jungle and the penguins on the walls, but what about the Ship Name)

Mike - I currently do work with big data and big data warehouses, which is trendy and pays quite well. But I've been offered gigs to do COBOL and PL/1 work which have a significantly higher hourly wage because all of the "old" programmers have retired or died off! I still remember in the early 1980's when I was told that "COBOL is a dead language, it has no future" smile Just as with the dead language of Latin - if you want to become a doctor you had better learn it...

p.s. If you'd chosen the Tour-de-France picture I'd be up at bat by now!

Galapagos is correct. This was going to be the next photo...

[Linked Image]

Lonesome George was still there in 2010 but I believe he is no more. The original HMS Indefatigable did visit the Galapagos back in 1812 but the name plate on the wall probably relates to the WW2 vessel of the same name.

Your turn Tom.

Yes I was very disappointed back around Y2K as I didn't know COBOL. People in the UK made a fortune from the banks making sure the systems kept working. I bet many of them of them are still going now!

We went to watch the Tour last year, the last 5 stages or so, finishing it up in Paris. Such a fun trip. Got to see the riders up close at starts and finishes. I love the mountain stages, I need to do some catch up watching, last stage I wathced was Sunday's mountain finish.

Yes, mine too. Canceled Italy for October 2020.

Watching the Tour and the views from the helicopter, is the closet thing to "real" travel for me.

I am the world's worst speller so close counts! But I am sorry S.G. is not the place.

I spelled the next hint so bad that if one capitalized one letter and unscrambled the word it would be a good clue
