My friend Pat is a travel agent, and each year we like to go to an island we've never been to before. Being a bit puzzling, Pat doesn't tell me our destination directly, but instead sends me a weird picture. I never know where the heck I'm going which makes it really hard to pack. Two years ago, Pat sent me this picture:
We ended up in Martha's Vineyard. Last year, Pat sent me this picture:
Our trip was to The Hamptons that year.
This year is a big birthday for me, so Pat is planning something special. But all I get is this image:
Can you please help me figure out where I'm headed?
Solver Notes: For the color-blind...I am sorry. This puzzle pretty much requires analysis of the colors and shapes in the images.
The identifications provided by @MrSethward are correct, but there is another step to determine the trip destination, which is not in North Carolina. As a hint, the order of the icons in the pictures matters.
Google's My Maps provides a useful function that the usual Google Maps does not that can help you solve this puzzle.
