Welcome back to Borussia!

We ended the previous update learning about the community of Walden, and today we'll learn a bit more before we go.

Back in Walden we go by the farmer's market. The stalls are full of locally grown food after the harvest in the fall, but today the stalls are mostly empty as fall has yet to come here in Borussia. Many people still come though to relax with friends and play the popular games that are always set up and running around the market.

As we leave the market we decide to head to our next destination. On our way to the rail station our driver is informed that our ride will not be coming in today due to repairs on the tracks east of Walden. Looks like we're back on the road again.

On our way out of town we pass the Walden Country School, where many of the farm kids go to learn about farm stuff instead of that "non-sense" the town school teaches to its city folk, such as math, language and science.

We make our way through the countryside towards our next stop, Branaugh Wood.

Looks like someone harvested their crops early by the look of the land around this farmer's acreage.

Further down we stop at a general store because one of you just had to go!pitstop.jpg

Back behind the store is the old mill that used to use the pond water to turn its water wheel for years.

Now that you're down in the bathroom back at the store we continue our drive. Just past the store are some old windmills and a ranch. As we take a look at the windmills the smell of the ocean fills the air around us; we're back on the coast.

The highway then takes us by the limestone quarry on the side of Radio Hill. The quarry was used to build the castle in Stafford hundreds of years ago but hasn't been used in years.

The path along the quarry takes us up to the top of Radio Hill and the namesake radio station on the top of the hill. The station, KBGB 91.9, has filled the local airways with everyone's favorite elevator music and news for years. Don't get to close to the edge though, its a long drop to the ocean below.

After hiking up and down the path, our driver takes us into Branaugh Wood to grab us a bite to eat. There's bound to be food somewhere down there in the hamlet.

Downtown has a market eerily similar to Walden's, yet doesn't have as food or games today. Luckily across the street there's a local pizza shop.

To the west of the market is the center of all of your livestock feed needs, the Hay Market. The rest stop and an old warehouse reside near the hay market.

Down the quiet dirt streets we reach the bed n breakfast near the station. Here we'll stop for the day.

The Branaugh Wood area in whole. Following the main road to the right through the forest and farms will take you to back to Green Cape.

Here's a preview of our next stop. It's not completely done yet but should be done by next week. The next updates may be somewhat short as I have school starting again now, but that shouldn't keep me from having at least one weekly update.

I hope you enjoyed today's tour through rural Borussia!

@Huston the second market pic would've shown people in it too but the sims were camera shy
