Want to play a game? Post a picture of a reasonably recognizable location and ask if anyone can guess the location. One rule, it must be a picture you took or taken by a friend/family.

Anybody recognize this place?

yes,

I was really figuring you'd get that;)

btw, I was born in Torrance....raised in Gardena, then moved down toward Cochella & Indio, then to Arkansas in '72, then to Oklahoma in 73....
it was a dry county in Arkansas that caused my step-dad move us to Oklahoma

Grandma was a cafeteria manager for Marina Del Rey school for many years, and retired

Easy... Mont Saint-Michel, France


Mont Saint-Michel Used to be an island at hightide, but since they've fortified the road way in, it has been a penninsula not a trombolo. Atleast according to geology lecture today.

That looks like Mackinaw Island Michigan to me. I could be wrong though. I have only been there once and it was a while ago.

If you zoom in you should be able to see them all eating fudge. or watching their steps around all the horse poop. The two things I always remember about the island.

Actually it is very popular, if you know where it is!! LOL!! Back in the gold mining days the town was booming, The miner's used donkey's in the town and when they moved on they left all these wild donkey's in the town. Clarke Gabel actually spent his honeymoon in the hotel there!! Really interesting place(I think) even if it is a po-dunk town!!
