What In The World Happened Here? Puzzle CLXXIX (179)

hilly, cloudy, raindrops on camera lens, dirty water. Tropical. Dynamiting to expand the canal. Picture in color, so not the original canal, but the current expansion.

Puzzle: What In The World Happened Here? CLXXXI (181):

The answer is of the form: The last <something> of the <something>.

I've been a bit of a laggard in posting lately, due to comprehensively crashing my system. Good to see other posters setting up puzzles. By the way, although there is a paucity of puzzle posters, checking "Who's Online" will often show a dozen or so lurkers reading this thread, and lots of spider activity.

So, in the New Year, I want to rock all with interesting and even difficult puzzles.

And I wish we still had Allan the K keeping score...

Barely holden on 40 years ago,and F and S are still holden on to their Monaro.

But they are driving on the correct side of the road.

If it is Isle of Scilly, then there are lots of possibilities
Shipwrecks Isle of Scilly

if antipodal from there, then did you find where Malaysian 370 lies on the bottom?

Well if an anniversary, then, that would be geo:49.880471,-6.413552. And a the reciprocal lessons: ships named for rivers, you know. Its either that, or perhaps sunk by association.

Higher than the cold-water coral, and higher than the periwinkles.

Operation Eagle Claw or Operation Evening Light or Operation Rice Bowl?
