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.

This is the Dongyeongiu to Seoraksan tunnel in Jeogeot. The tunnel is transparent, and there are all kinds of interesting things in the water outside. (That's not my avatar.)

Correct! I used to have a little parcel down there in the Eup portion of the route, and I put a mermaid home on it. :)

Speaking of mermaids....here's my next one. If you are sailing by you might not be aware of the ruins underwater (or the giant squid). Clue: T. S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats."

Statues by Earthy Mole.

Apologies - the second photo was taken in Griddlebone, a region next to Macavity. Griddlebone is a (sometimes) character in "Cats", depending on the version of the screenplay.

There was a small plot for sale, right up next to The Tube, with protected land on another side.  The price was right.  It's mine now.  😄   Plus The Tube window adjacent to the parcel is one of the ones that you can walk through to get into and out of The Tube.

Am I the only one who likes to hangout inside her car on this bridge?

Lovely photos of the bridge to Shermerville.

I think I have only been across it once in my car, but detoured under it countless times in my boat.

(Still playing with camera settings - TOR Pretty Placid water & Fluffy Big Clouds sky, if you are interested.)

This is an old broken Lighthouse in a "park". Mighty Mole comes up as the builder and Build date October 2008.

But where am I?

I hadn't actually looked at the surface, and I didn't know there was a side entrance, but it looks like a lovely area.

This old (Eric Linden - April 2004) highway comes to an abrupt end.... but where is it?

Snapshot_077.jpg.ec92f358b202a069f5b81a1daa9c9e34.jpg

Maybe a tip is in order.. That date for construction predates the Atoll by a year.... This map shows what was around in 2004 and will narrow it down:

Ps if you haven't already visited it the New Kadath Lighthouse Art Gallery has a fascinating selection of old maps:

Hint: This boardwalk area is in a region that used to be part of the Teen Grid before it was integrated into the main grid in 2011. 

This is in Wellfleet Harbor near Bay City.
