It doesn't look American to me. The resolution isn't clear enough under magnification to see the types of vehicles on the streets, so I can't be sure.

Neat that you visited there, Stillkit - with all those trucks down there it must get stinky from exhaust - but it doesn't look dirty from it.

Ok, this JT one...the hairpin switchbacks with sheer cliffs remind me of roads in Greece but this doesn't feel like Greece to me. It looks like a community - I think there's a church - and obviously the pool and tennis court. The buildings are drab, though, so I'm wondering if it's a company town of some sort. It also seems remote - like the cranes and shipping crates might be for shipping in pretty much everything they need. Also, there's that weird flat out in the water. Not sure what that is. It's an outside pool but the area looks cold to me. And not sure what's going in across the hillside - some man made stuff over there - a retaining wall or maybe part of a tunnel or work related thing. Hmmm...

I can confirm that. And it's not Greece.

Ok thanks. Oh also it looks like there's a flag at the water end of the parking lot but it doesn't look like the US flag. It does look like it has red and white, though - but that might be an illusion. Maybe it's a government community but not military. And I'm wondering if it's adult oriented - doesn't seem like a kid place, unless there's much more off camera. But the way that church is plunked down there with no park or beautification...the whole place just seems...efficient/practical

Funny you should say that because one of the first things I thought was that some of those buildings look like converted barracks.

Caves: No, the exhaust fumes aren't too bad because they've got massive exhaust fans.

I still can't tell much from the vehicles except that I don't think they're American.

Also, it's difficult to tell if the streets are right or left lane driving because they're parked all over the place. However, there's one spot which has angled parking spaces laid out for right lane driving, unless it's a one way street.

That second picture shows an awful lot of pleasure craft or small fishing boats out in the bay.

Yeah, the vehicles didn't seem like an American assortment to me, either. I agree about the converted barracks look - which is why I was thinking maybe government. The boats - first I was thinking maybe it's a fishing village but now think maybe it's just cause there's not much else to do on the water - like beach, surf, etc. And if they're living down there, what's the road leading to up top?

Is it Jamestown on Santa Helena island in the Atlantic?

Yes! It is! <happy dance> I actually found that super-fast (for me) - most of the time I was away I was dealing with scareware. Now I've gotta go check this place out...
