Well let us take a trip down memory lane...
I am sure there are 100s of people on this forum that have been to this location
However, this is what it looked like 30 years ago!

And it would be great when you get it to post a more recent picture!

Sorry Carol and Rebecca you are both wrong.

Hint 1 - This island has had a name change from the original Northern European name of the past

Jeannius,

You are correct! The island was formerly known as Bergen Island.
Many moons ago it fell under Sweden-Norway deal, which I do not understand.

The shot was taken on our first sail charter in July of 1989. The boat, Rising Sun, was destroyed months later during Hurricane Hugo (Sept 89)
From my understanding it was at Yacht Haven in front of the old Ramada Inn. (also gone)

Here is pic of Rising Sun

You are up Jeannius!

SAIL445 - you are correct it is Cooper, but Jeannius already got it and has posted a new pic.

BEERMAN - I just went back at went through pics real quick. I thought it was the park next to the Negresco at the musée Masséna.
But I am wrong. The BV has me stumped, but it sure looks like Nice or somewhere on Côte d'Azur.

Still standing by my guess - Nice. But hey... I have been wrong before.

Welcome back jphart hope you are safe in JAX.

Quick update on how we are playing.

The person in control of the thread (right now Jeannius) will post the picture.
Kinda on the honor system no Google until 18 hours after the post was originally posted.
This is because we have people from all over playing and on different work shifts.

The poster will give hints if no one gets it after some period of time to keep the game moving.

If you guess right you post the next picture.
If you have problems posting pictures shoot me a PM and I can help you, but it is easy.

Remember if it has to be a picture you posted. Oh yeah make sure change the name of the picture if it says where it is taken.
For example SXM19-001 would make it pretty easy to guess.

Again glad to see you and SAIL445 join in!

How do you know it's not VB?

I agree someone in the south of France, almost looks like a memorial to BV/VB?

All good guesses, in the right country, but slightly more obscure. I'll let it run a bit longer before providing the first clue.

Apologies, I've just realised the image quality has been degraded when I loaded it to TTOL and you can't zoom in to see the detail that is in the photo.


Carol... Is it possible to load the images at the original resolution?

Will you confirm or deny Côte d'Azur?

I am having a bad feeling it is the town where my wallet found a new home.
A man on the train need my wallet more than I did... sad cloud

Mike--I do not know if it would make any difference, but you can try to upload the photo to one of our image galleries. I assume what you did was use the 'image' tag and the photo is stored somewhere else on the internet, and the quality of the image there---wherever it's stored--isn't the best. Perhaps it would be better if you upload it directly to TTOL, I don't know.

Hi Carol... I did load it into your image gallery. It has halved the original resolution.

Sadly the clue that would have become apparent if it could be viewed at original size is not visible, so I'll provide a clue...

This flight of 9 locks is just outside the city wall of the earlier photo...

Correct. The statue in the earlier photo, if you could see at the original resolution, had the letters BEZ visible. It was probably pretty much impossible without seeing that.

We rented a canal boat for 4 weeks and did the entire Canal du Midi and Canal de Garonne last year. The locks were a fun experience and a great piece of engineering.

jphart... Your photo please

Here was the hint, but you were too quick.
16 years between visits; cruise stop then pre-sail trip. I Would still like to go back again. This from on the walk to Oia....your kind of hike Rick! We took a ferry to Mykonos from here, then 7-night sail a few days later from Athens.

The views from the castle the powerful Scaligeri family built were amazing, even though the castle felt like it was "sinking" beneath our feet!
