    Ah yes, but Nauvoo was such a speldid site with many missionaries to guide you along. And no overly blatant push on religion.

    Informative and enjoyable.

    Next.

    We were just there this October when we drove the Mississippi River Road. Interesting place.
    Okay, here's a panoramic view to identify. Should be easy! BJ

    Another hint was that we were surprised we liked the place so much and it has great museums and the best aquarium we have seen.

    I'm guessing Baltimore. The Inner Harbor in the first photo and Fell's Point in the second...

    Yup, Annie M., sure is and you got both places exactly right! Your turn.

    Yes, the Del Coronado it is.

    This one has to be easy as I'm leaving on a trip for the next two months in the morning. So here's a big hint.

    Think Beer!

    If no one gets it by later this evening, I'll give it up.

    I guess I better add a photo.

    You are correct, Eleanor. I figured you were out there lurking. Here's a video on youtube to show what they are doing now at Corona Arch.

    You may have to copy a paste to get it to work.

    that is definitely NOT (repeat NOT) for me!

    Now for something different...

    The shoreline and look of the water remind me of some areas around the Bay of Fundy, but I don't recognize the dock or that adorable grass roof.

    It is Canada, but not Bay of Funday. Go north east.

    Wow gal. You are really digging deep. Only got to Halifax before the rain got into Papillion's roof.

    Im' surprised as everyone was talking about the TV mini series from 2002 and wanting to see the film set. It is set in the 18thC and the set is a genuine reconstruction of an 18thC Newfoundland fishing village. it tells the story of a courageous woman's journey from servitude in England to the harsh life of Outport Newfoundland. It is a fascinating place and well worth visiting.

    Since nobody got it, do you want to offer another one, Eleanor?

    It is the film set for the Random Passage mini series on TV.

    One problem is that many of my pictures are well off the tourist beat and tend to be a bit obscure.

    Lets try this one:

    One of our favourite walks in Jasper. We've watched the Glacier recede over the years. A sad comment for Earth Day.

    Now something nostalgic for codgers. An oldie!

    Definitely has an "Expo" vibe to it. Seems too recent for Expo 67 in Montreal, so I'll guess Expo 86 in Vancouver?

    If I'm on the right track, do you want a pavilion name?

    Scott you're on the right track, wrong Expo. Guess the Pavilion.

    One last pic of the whole pavilion then we'll wrap it up if no one gets it. Pavilion? EXPO? City?

    Right you are Sheena. The picture is of the USofA Pavilion at Expo 67. It was designed by Buckminster Fuller. I was lucky enough to get a job, albeit volunteer, at Expo 67 for a week. Got me in the gate early to miss the lineups!

    I came to Canada in 1966. By 1967 I had met Terry (putting an end to my trip around the world!) and we went together to Expo 67. Perhaps we crossed paths there Dennis! I distinctly remember that very impressive USA pavilion. How young we were then!

    I'll go and search out a photo.

    Here you go....the glimpse of the building to the left is a big hint.

    Good guess but no, not Falling Water. The building shown is way earlier than Frank Lloyd Wright.

    You need to look north!

    Could be any of a number of old mills. My guess is near where I grew up: the mill at Elora Gorge, Ontario.

    Absolutely correct Dennis. This is the photo I wanted to use, but that trip was in 2003 and my meory has failed me.... is this church also in Elora?

    Dennis I didn't mean to take your turn here - this was sort of an aside to the Elora Mill photo. Since you know the area I thought you might know the church - but the question wasn't part of the photohunt!

    Hi Sheena:
    Was away yesterday so didn't see your post until this morning. The church doesn't strike any chords in Elora. The view looks more like the stretch along the Grand River near Fergus (a neighbouring town).

    Here's my submission:

    You are correct Eleanor. Your turn

  42. #492
    Any offers for where this is? A clue... it is no longer working commercially and is part of a museum.

    Most of the village is an open air museum.

    Eleanor:
    I've held off, hoping others might answer. Sherbrooke Village, on the way to Cape Breton from Halifax.

    I'll hold off posting so someone else with a favourite place can post a photo of it.
