I think I get your clue, but sans Google I'll guess Taos.

17 mile drive is pebble beach to me, so I’ll wait to see how it develops.

Friends of mine spent a summer at a fishing plant in Alaska and said it was a 15 mile walk to closest bar...Alaska?

A 17 mile walk to the nearest bar, in Scotland? That doesn't sound likely. And the transformers on the pole look distinctly north American.

You are probably right Arnd. I did once ski in Scotland and I haven't recovered yet from the experience. Getting a drink was always possible but avoiding getting blown off the side of the mountain was pretty tricky.

My only thought on that picture is that Indian reservations are typically "dry" and could explain the long hike to a bar from a place that has evident human habitation. There are a lot of first nation places in the north and west of the American continent, which would also explain the snow.... but since my only experience of that area is skiing in Whistler I'm going to have to wait for someone else to guess the location.

My first thought was also a Reservation, but then the part of sailing or walking led me to an island in the Pacific northwest. I've now narrowed this down to several hundred islands in this vast area. In other words, I don't have a clue.

Not a movie but for a music video for Wings and the song title is not the answer

Thats is the place better known as Knoydart, we have a winner. No cell phone signal, no internet, very peaceful and surprisingly busy.

Sleepychef, ironically I've been there. I was on S/V Skyelark in 2013 and we were just finishing World Cruising's Malt Cruise - next day was Oban. Skipper Dan & I went ashore and had a couple of pints but needed ice for cocktails later on the boat. Dan, being an astute English fellow, gave me the ice bucket and said "Fred, with your accent, they'll give us all the ice we need".

True, but it's early and an orchid (as opposed to many other flowers) is a clue here.

Cmon you have to have a building or some other landmark. This could be the entrance to Trader Joe.

Fred, I've seen a similar looking place but can't recall where it was...Roatan comes to mind for some reason.

This orchid could very well be the offspring of an plant propagated by a famous person who loved orchids. It is a long airplane ride from St. Lucia, Roatan or Carol's porch, but not nearly as far from Luzon. If no one gets it soon, I'll post the giveaway picture.

Not Madagascar and the other direction from Luzon - but right hemisphere. The famous person was in several films and a couple of TV series in the US.

I looked up the moth orchid, and thought that might be the reference to Charles Darwin. The only other orchid personage I can recall is Nero Wolfe, but he was in NYC and a fictional character to boot...

Carol, you are at practically the same latitude but about 1,800 too far east. Question: Is the time stated on posts the Eastern Time Zone in the US?

OK, so I cheated for nothing. And I have no idea where it is, based on that picture.

The time on your screen is however YOU set it, under your preferences.
