Where on Earth? Mk II

Is that snow in the background?

Cpt_Pugwash 19th Dec 2013 21:49

Yes, indeed it is. This was taken in January 1989.

East Bath house, Jones Beach State Park, Long Island, New York, USA??

Cpt_Pugwash 19th Dec 2013 22:21

Right state, but wrong island and beach.

finfly1 19th Dec 2013 22:26

Second guess would be Smith Point State Park, Shirley, Long Island.

But it is basically not a different island.

And why the square sunglasses? Snow glare, preparation for nuclear holocaust?

If Long Island, presumably southern beach not the Sound-facing part?

Cpt_Pugwash 19th Dec 2013 22:30

Not Smith Point State Park. This island is quite long , but not Long Island. I remember lots of horseshoe crabs on the shoreline, and getting ribbed by our US hosts when we mentioned where our afternoons drive had ended up, due to the apparent reputation of this location.

Fire Island

Broadreach, that's the customary black maskers to preserve the anonymity of two officers of Aunty Bettys war canoes:)

Also a lot of kite flying going on at the beach.

Cpt_Pugwash 19th Dec 2013 22:36

Correct. Somewhere on the western end of Fire Island National Seashore.

YHC.

Blackmasks, immediately identifiable by the beards....

broadreach 19th Dec 2013 22:38

Not many alternatives to LI than Fire Island Pugwash! I have nought on hand so Open House.

Cpt_Pugwash 19th Dec 2013 22:53

After checking on Google maps, Smith Point State Park is at the eastern end of Fire Island, so technically Finfly1 was correct, and can take control.

Santa Cruz De Tenerife, unless there's a doppelganger hideous concrete monstrosity elsewhere!

Fox3WheresMyBanana 20th Dec 2013 11:17

Not a doppelganger, but the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus over on Gran Canaria definitely gets into the concrete monstrosity category also. Perhaps it's the local industry. Nice sound inside though.

superq7 20th Dec 2013 11:18

Spot on LC, I think it's let's say unusual.

YHC
