You know, Westozzy, that looks suspiciously like Tampa Bay. :lol: I don't see the Skyway bridge, so it might not be there, but am I correct in guessing that it's a Florida location?

That doesn't look like Florida.

That's cool.
Doesn't make that Florida. I know Florida when I see it. I was kinda born there.

Thats not Florida unless there are some new hills down there. You can clearly see some elevation in the distance. Looks simialar to many spots here in Mass. If you love flat shallow spots with lots of soft terrain surrounding, its tough to beat the East Coast of the US.
Love spots like that , especially when its cold and you do not feel like getting pounded by cold surf.

Yeah, at first glance, I didn't see that soft elevation in the background. My bad. But everything except the distant background looks just like Tampa bay, down to the dry crusty seaweed.

I don't think it could be Mass, unless Westozzy has antifreeze running through his veins. :lol:

I'm betting its east coast, probably in the Carolinas.

Americans really do have a hard time thinking outside their own little world. (I say that as an American)

I was not saying it was Massachusetts, just commenting that we have similar type areas .
