Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/09/2021 06:59 PM

Ok, Mike (Jeannius), you are up, as far as posting a new picture.

NEW RULES--for the time being, ANYONE can answer to name the picture, and IF you don't have a picture of your own to post, with that person's permission you can name someone else to post a new picture for you. For now, Kim (Sandsailsun) is agreeing to post a new picture for anyone that doesn't have one.

So, again, a person who DOESN'T have a picture to post can still answer, so long as they have someone who agrees to post a picture for them...

Correct. Thought that would be easy but then I also thought that about my previous photo. I don't know what they were doing moving USS Constitution that day. I don't think that's a regular occurrence. We also saw this on the same day as we were leaving. The Cape Cod Ferry on the rocks.. It went past us at high speed and 30 minutes later we arrived at the scene...

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/11/2021 06:44 PM

Well I think it is Turkey. It looks very like a place called Ova Buka where I spent three days on my very first charter ( a flotilla ) waiting for Sunsail to change the engine on my boat which had consumed all it's oil in the first 10 nm trip. Wasn't a great start having to get towed in with a reluctant wife and very young daughter as my crew.
Posted By: Sandsailsun

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/11/2021 06:49 PM

It is in Turkey Mike ..not the place you mention but another harbour popular for sailors on flotilla
This is a picture ashore iwhich may provide a clue

Posted By: Sandsailsun

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/13/2021 04:59 PM

Not sure of the name of the town but the Island is called Nisyros ..we left Kos for a two week flotilla around the Dodecanese area of the Greek isles.

This stop was incredible and we even walked on the floor of this dormant volcano ...the tiny dot in the middle is my husband

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/14/2021 04:54 PM

Hi. Neat pictures. I have no guesses even, though. Generally when someone posts a pic and no one has a guess, the original poster gives a clue or two, to help out the people trying to guess. Clues do NOT have to be pictures.
Posted By: TomB

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/14/2021 05:05 PM

I would guess the Azores, but not sure which Island.
I have only been to Terceira and I do not think it is that one.
Posted By: Fred

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/14/2021 05:05 PM

I'm not bored as these are great pictures. I don't know where they were taken, but like a few more folks here, I'm practically out of photos to post. Keep on posting!

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/15/2021 07:52 AM

What appears to be missing are the names (and perhaps bodies) on the graves. I'm guessing that it might be Israel and perhaps something to do with the Holocaust?
Posted By: TomB

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/15/2021 12:03 PM

North Africa is correct
The shot is from the back, hence no names
There are 8,000 buried there but no GI Joes
Posted By: Zanshin

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/15/2021 02:45 PM

And I was going to guess Gallipoli but that is not in North Africa. The only applicable site that I can think of is the battle (cemetery) of Alamein. That was the site of two battles where there were many casualties.
Posted By: TomB

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/15/2021 04:14 PM

El-Alamein Egypt is correct.

It may have been the battled that changed the war.
The cemetery is in the desert not far from the sea - just miles and miles of nothing - heat sand and more sand
Tank crews are buried together with three headstones to mark their resting place
And the amount of unknown graves is overwhelming

There is a very good museum close by.
The desert that surrounds the area still has lots of unexploded ordinance and after a wind storm vehicles and tanks are still be found.
In 2008 they found a truck that was in the desert and it started and they drove it to the museum... crazy.

Fran - things aren't quite that bad regarding today's youth and history...

I am forced to recall this statement by a famous person:

“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”

There are two official languages, but it doesn't really matter as the island has been uninhabited since the lighthouse keeper was retired in 1948.

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/23/2021 06:11 AM

I believe that I recognize the rock (off Moskito Island, marks the outside of the North Sound entrance). The only uninhabited island that I can think of with a lighthouse is Sombrero Island. I've sailed past her twice - the first land you see when heading to St. Martin from Virginia. But I never went close to shore.

Addendum:
I Just looked at the first picture and saw houses in the distance. So my guess can't be correct... oh well...
Posted By: Jeannius

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/23/2021 09:26 AM

With the two languages clue and uninhabited I'm guessing it is one of the small islands between St Martin and St Barts. Ile Forchue is the only one I can think of that has an anchorage but I would have thought that was part of St Barts so only one official language.
Posted By: BaardJ

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/23/2021 12:41 PM

Wrong direction. Need to take your passage in a westerly direction.

The north shore of this island has a very large tidal pool that rivals Jost Van Dyke's bubbly pool.

When approaching from the south, watch out for reefs that extend over 2.5 miles from shore.

Is it Culebrita?
Posted By: BaardJ

Re: Game time--part 16--NEW RULES!! - 01/23/2021 03:43 PM

BINGO!

It's Culebrita in the Spanish Virgin Islands (formerly known as the Passage Islands) and is part of Puerto Rico. It's only a 2.5 hour downwind sail from Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas. If you avoid the weekends when the local boaters show up (and even then it tends to be very family friendly with multiple generations onboard the boats), you will usually have the island pretty much to yourself. The main anchorage is Bahia de Tortuga (Turtle Bay) - you can expect to count a dozen or more sea turtles rising near you boat. We've experienced some amazing full moons here. Only challenge is that this bay is exposed to northerly ground swells.

From Bahia de Tortuga, it's a relatively easy 20 minute hike to the lighthouse that was built by the Spanish from 1882-1886. It was destroyed in 1932 by a hurricane, rebuilt, then extinguished during much of WWII for security measures, returned to service in 1944, automated in 1948, then the building was finally closed in 1959. There has been some attempt to stabilize the crumbling lighthouse walls, but be cautious if you explore the rooms. The spiral iron staircase looks ready to collapse. I haven't tried to climb up the steps since Hurricane Irma.

The nearby populated island of Culebra has several very good restaurants in the small town of Dewey. There is a Spanish Puerto Rican vibe to the island that is completely different from the nearby USVI and BVI. I've found the residents to be extremely friendly.

After being spectacularly useless at limiting infections, our government seems to have got it right and pre-ordered a large number of different vaccines before knowing what, if anything, would work. So far they've got 3 right, Pfizer, Moderna and Oxford and are now rapidly working through the priority groups with 432,000 administered on Friday. I'm in the fifth group, over 65 and Jean is two groups down. At 400,000 plus a day, all priority groups (50 and over and people with underlying health issues) should have had one jab within the next two to three months.

Fred, I believe Indonesia is considered part of Asia by most geographers. I'm going to guess Sumatra.

It is Indonesia Fred. They are both part of Asia. Now then... Which island?

I know Indonesia is part of Asia, but the clue was " Right continent Fran but wrong country". I considered Indonesia a group of several islands independent of the Asian continent - I could be wrong.
Too many islands and I don't know which one.

Indonesia is part of Asia because it lies on the same continental shelf as mainland Asia. In just the same way, the British Isles are part of continental Europe because they lie on the same continental shelf. Here's a wikipedia definition... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boundaries_between_the_continents_of_Earth .

The island in question is a very popular destination for Aussies and Brits but perhaps not for Americans. The name of the island exists in a song title in a Rogers and Hammerstein movie.

OK, I'll go with Bali? (but I'm still with Winston Churchill on your country- "we shall defend our island") grin

Not Sumatra Fran but close. Bali is correct Fred.

We are an island now but as recently as 9,000 years ago (just after the last ice age) you could walk from England to France. Melting ice, a landslide in Norway and the resulting Tsunami flooded what is now the English Channel and that was that, Britain became an island.

Closing this one now, since we have a new thread going with a new picture.
