Yeeessss. More! I find the bodies of water more interesting (but maybe easier) than a lot of the country images.

Strait of Magellan probably would have been a lot harder without the "Strait of _____" hint, and Lake Winnipeg was churning in my brain for a while until it finally clicked.

I recognised the place for the Strait of Magellan, just all forgotten what it was called if I ever knew. Scored Puget Sound when I tried to guess on something completely different. There are a couple there that should be easy for Americans, but are definitely harder if it isn't your home turf. Like Chesapeake, Puget, Winnipeg and Erie.

How is it harder if it isn't in your home country. I am from michigan and that doesn't mean I struggled. I finished this quiz in 45 seconds.

I don't know if I'm asking a little too much, but Sea of Cortes should be accepted for the Gulf of California, as it's best known (near that gulf).

I know "The Gulf of California" as the "Sea of Cortez". Am I wrong on that?

angrobper14 and CliveDexter are correct. Sea of Cortez, Sea of Cortes, and Vermilion Sea should be acceptable answers for the Gulf of California.

Any chance you could accept just Chesapeake? For Hudson Bay it seems to be enough to just type Hudson. Threw me off for a moment.

Ya exactly as they accepted "Hudson" for Hudson Bay so why not "Chesapeake" for Chesapeake Bay

Yeah, it threw me when Chesapeake didn't work. I kept retyping it until, in frustration, I added "Bay" and it worked.
