Finally found it! Beatrice 149/178/34 in Nautilus. This is Route 12 - there is another U-turn on the other end, I think.

YES!  It's the Beatrice Turnaround, was one of the few places listed in a very old Linden online guide to roads (I can no longer find this guide), and does have another turn-around at the other end.  On a personal note, I once owned land here, and at the other end, a rather long time ago.  Both places featured amusement parks.  Now there is a GTFO place run by a friend who's had that parcel before GTFO even existed (and before I'd had a spot in Beatrice), and my favorite carousel.  #Memories

A thread in General discussions has reminded me of a game we used to play on one of the sailing forums. Basically the idea is that someone posts a photo of themselves somewhere recognisable in SL

I believe that is the lighthouse in Gaeta, Lastness Region in the Coastal Waterway 214,104,22?   Now, is anyone brilliant enough to figure out where this is? (The clue is in the question.)

Aethelwine, you were at Brenner enjoying the dinosaurs created by Torley Linden.

Another broken bridge? How do drivers manage?

(This is not the bridge with the monument to Cooter, this is the bridge with, currently, the Giant Snail and Giant Snail Sign.)

It's in Sansara.

BTW, the Linden Road Community has produced a "Where Am I?" bracelet to help you determine your location. It works the same way as other "Continent Locators" but your avatar doesn't go around carrying a can....

What is this group? I can't find it in search, and would like one of the bracelets. :) 

EDIT: Never mind, I think I found it. Search is so unfriendly sometimes...

They are now in the Friendship Forest Area, along with the Protected Route Interest Group. Menorpha 191/44/43 - Asadora Summers made the bracelet and distributed it to Linden Roads Community group members. My copy is marked "no transfer" but I'm sure she would be glad to send you one if you want.

A continent detector script is how I got a feel for the world when I was new.  I was always thinking "But where *am* I in this world?"  I think I found the script in the Second Life wiki, and used it to make a script in the backpack Female Student has in the inventory Library.  Every time I teleported:  "You are in Corsica."  "You are in Sansara."  "You are in the Western Ocean."  etc.

If you don't use a Library item, be sure to put the script in a *copy*.  You don't want to permanently alter the original item.

The animated snail overlooking you there is a bit of a surprise when you first notice movement!

It is in Fujin

This place looks like it has seen better days but still seems to be fulfilling its purpose, but where am I?

This is the Braunworth Infohub in Braunworth 98/140/18.  An adjoining parcel "*under construction*", is turning into quite a nice reconstruction of a downtown urban area.

Some of the walls don't seem to be textured, the souvenir shop empty, I wonder if the hub has always been like that, it is old and is intended to look run down... or whether it has suffered a bit over the years with corrupted textures and prims vanishing.

From the Coastal Waterway side this cave doesn't look very deep - when I looked more carefully I found out that there is a back section with ammunition boxes and a Misty Moleteddy. 

Note: Two out of three times I've stopped by, other residents have been inside, so knock first...

Clue, please?

Maybe this view from the outside helps a bit moreSnapshot_071.thumb.jpg.a7d9a6875f1d831ab98ef043b2c2f0bf.jpg

Silent, Princess and Naughty Mole seem to be mostly responsible.

That's not Blake Sea - Windlass is it? i remember something like that there

It is Windlass, well done! 

Hiding things in plain sight, are often the best way to get people to overlook them. I have been sailing around there regularly for years and only just recently looked behind the waterfall.

It is your turn now to get us searching

The Butterfly House in Clearwing, another favorite spot. :)  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Clearwing/112/239/34

EDIT: Or maybe not? I'm seeing a tile floor there, not wood. I will wait for confirmation before posting a new one! I'll be very happy if it turns out there is a clone of the Clearwing one! ❤️

Thank you, Sylvia.

This one is seasonal. I used a freebie bunny avatar to hop around and explore. Many of the landscape items give out freebies, and if you fly up to the top of a tower, the bird nest will give you a small chick.

It is the top of the tower in project Kapor Rosedale, specifically in Rosedale.
