Well not quite, the waterfall is in the background! I always liked the waterfall scene in FF6. This is literally the exact map from FF6 where Sabin thinks it would be a good idea to jump off a cliff and fight fish. The cliffs may just be positioned slightly differently.
Don't feel bad. I've played until leaving Midgard on 7, after Quintius leaves on 8, after meeting Dagger on 9, landing on Sin on 10, the second mission on 10-2, and Vanille and Fang's village on 13. The only FF games I've beaten are Crisis Core and 12.
