  1. She spoke poorly of a beach in California.

  2. And he spoke poorly of his Chevy.

  3. Hmmm, my clues sound like they are too difficult.

  4. There’s little shadow of a doubt here.

  5. In Scotland, they might mention your bonny bight.

  6. Off the coast of Malabo, Equatorial Guinea

    3 45 37 N
    8 46 37 E

    Again, none of the previous clues made sense at first, I guess Malabo sounds like Malibu, but where did Chevy come in? and Shadow of a doubt threw me way off, I thought it had to do with the Hitchcock movie, which was filmed in Santa Rosa, CA, so of course I went to look at Santa Rosa Island……

    Oh yeah Malabo is located in the Bight of Bonny

  7. Congrats, Ryan.

    Chevy Malibu. I was trying to emphasize Malibu (beach and car), as Adriaan had emailed to me about looking around Venice, Italy.

    The “spoke poorly” portion of the clue was to suggest “sounds similar to”.

    The shadow reference was meant to draw solvers’ attention to the shadows cast in relation to the compass, suggesting somewhere close to the equator. I’m not familiar with Hitchcock’s movie, so that was an unintentional allusion.

  8. There’s also a Chevy Laguna, I’ve been looking quite a while for places with similar names. There are a lot of those…
    The shadow hint did it for me.
