East Tenne: Welcome to the East Village
A very scenic spot now has permanent residents. The northern side of the Tenne River Delta and the Tenne Sea intersect here, at the newly built East Village. East Village is the easternmost city in the delta area (hence the name) and faces both the sea and the Tenne River Delta National Park. This is a great place for water enthusiasts. Of course, not many cats go for water. But, catching seabirds is always popular.
East Village is a small town, with a seafront commercial district and mostly low density housing. Many of the homes on the leafy side streets are rentals for tourists. This ambience gives East Village a suburban feel - a much different vibe from the typical Schulminion town of tightly packed medium density homes. Let's see who is making East Village home - for a weekend or perhaps a lifetime.
Apostrophe Place, the commercial port and business district, is a narrow strip facing the Tenne Sea. The port, quite busy during tourist season and weekends, has 10 daily round trips to Knoxvegas and service to all Tenne River towns as well as Tellico, Schulmanidad and Smightower. The name comes from the markets flanking the port access road - Apostrophe Stores (left) and Apostrophe City (right).
In addition to the Apostrophe stores, shops and hotels as well as restaurants and small offices line this busy street. A civic center with school, clinic and municipal offices, is located at the far right,
Much of the sleepy town is given over to residential areas. A central avenue with a tree-filled median leads from the port to the main road to the interior. Radiating from both sides are residential blocks. Other than the residential area and the commercial waterfront, the only other feature to East Village is the waterfront park overlooking the delta and the national park.
Tree lined East Village Drive is the backbone of the town. It ends at Apostrophe Place and the seaport.
See if you can guess which house in this picture is rented mostly by honeymooners.
Here are some of the houses, and the entrance to Governor Cawale's stately vacation home in East Village. Play your cards right and you may be invited over for dinner.
Affectionately known as "The Brown House", Cawale's manor is more of a beige-tan. But, the governor enjoys it for her getaways. Before you visit, be sure to set aside some extra time to try out the hedge maze.
The other end of East Village Drive connects into the main road leading to the Tenne interior.
The south side of town is popular because it is closer to the delta waterfront park.
Several rentals are now available for the weekend.
Dickens Park overlooks the Tenne River Delta National Park. Named for the town's founder, Mr. Wut-tha Dickens, a stroll here is truly a delight.
Mayor Dickens' brother, author Charles, used this relaxing setting to compose several of his famous stories, including A Tale of Two Kitties, A Christmas Wirdle and Oliver Claws.
