Now all we need is Google Earth Live and we can watch you having fun.
On second thoughts, you could be having fun we don't want to watch.
So perhaps we should stick to what we have.
Great picture though.

That's cool! I followed the spanish coast from France to Barcelona on Google Earth, but didn't manage to find any Hobie Island. Maybe I didn't look carefully enough. Maybe there are few Hobie Islands in mediterrian Spain. Or maybe the spaniards store their Hobie Islands at better places. After all Hobie advice against having the Islands moored. And lying in the sun all the time. Having boats moored is also really expensive at the coast, so I guess I shouldn't have expected to find any Hobie Island. Perhaps I could have found one sailing, but I was interested in the coast line rather than in boats out in the blue. Do you know any image of a sailing Hobie Islands in Google Earth?

Well, I have seen the pictures before. But the pic from San Diego doesn't look lika a satelite photo. The resolution seems too high. Its 2,5 years old! The pic from Miramar is more the kind of resolution I get from Spain.

I've heard that Google mixes aerial and satellite photos. Don't know if it is true.
