Default Where On Earth Is This?

Jumping on the bandwagon for a bit....

Anyone know what this is, and where it's located?

I would hazard a guess (and a guess only) that the scene is located along the Japanese coast.

Loch ness is in scotland. Oddly enough all the pictures of Nessie look like an elephant's trunk. You be the judge. http://www.dancewithshadows.com/soci...r-elephant.asp

Nessie


Not Nessie

Ok guys, it's been a few days, so I'll divulge the winner and the answer:

Sharon got it right!

It is Haystack Rock, located on the beach at little ol' Cannon Beach, Oregon.

And this relates to cruising how, you ask? Well....

If your West Coast cruise takes you to Astoria, Oregon, you can take a shore excursion down to Cannon Beach, and at low tide, walk right up to Haystack Rock and get your picture taken.

That is good information. Great picture, thanks for sharing. I was way off in another country.
