    Just back from holiday and along my travels took this picture of my favorite yacht club. The club is at the foot of the mountain / hill.
    Can anyone out there identify this place:?:
    Tip: Clubhouse restaurant make the best carpetbaggers in the universe...

    No, you guys are not correct. Any other takers:?:

    By the way Bergalia, some movie star reminds me of you. I just cannot place the bugger now:confused:

    Where is this ?

    A combination actually - Equipped like Errol Flynn, looks of Gregory Peck, body of Jane Russell...:D

    Having a second bite at the photo - Guantanamo Bay ?

    But looking at the volcanic mass - more likely somewhere in Hawaii.

    Where's this

    Hold it, hold it...I'm having a third bite. Something in the back of the memory:Mindelo in the Cape Verde Islands, but I don't remember the spikey rock though there was a great bar just off the Avenida Marginal... :confused:

    You were out skiing Ragi when he said it wasn't Cape Town...

    Personally I don't believe he went there. I reckon he was just sifting through a 'real' sailor's ditty-box and came across a packet of postcards...That's why he's being so furtive about the answer....:p
