Hello again. Work is ongoing on the Cape May Court House tile. At the moment it's about 60% complete. So while we wait, we'll visit the Crest Haven tile.
East of the County Park is the Crest Haven section of Middle Township.
Located east of the Garden State Parkway at exit 11 , the Crest Haven Complex is home to several of the county's agencies and utilities.
A trash to steam plant at the County Municipal Utilities Authority helps fulfill the county's waste disposal needs.
Cape May Tech provides an educated work force for a non-polluting industry.
The New Jersey National Guard's 253rd Transport Company is based here. Recently returned from overseas duty, the 253rd also provides emergency aid to residents in times of disaster. To the right of the base is the Cape May County Jail and the Veterans Cemetary.
The Crest Haven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is home to some of the oldest residents of the region. Among the more cynical it is referred to as "God's Waiting Room"
Well, that's it for this installment. In case you didn't notice it in the first pic, the region has hit its first milestone . Cape May County is now home to over 100,000 sims,!
I'll leave you with a teaser from my upcoming work on Cape May Court House. Here's a look west on Mechanic Street from its intersection with Main Street ( US 9). Stay tuned !
The greenhead flies take annoying to a whole new level. They're up to an inch long, and unlike the smaller flies and mosquitoes, the wind doesn't keep them away.
Yeah, I went to school in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (the UP), and the flies up there are gigantic AND they bite. They're on the same level as mosquitoes, and although no other place I've lived has them, I believe they do exist in other locations.
It took a few tries to get the right screenshot with the god mode animals. They'd wander through the fencing and out on to Route 9 before I could set up the shot .
That is a great little community zoo - It reminds me of the Madison WI zoo that I used to visit when I lived up there. The African safari section with the in-game wild animals is perfect
Thank you ! One thing we're not short of around here is water. Between the low elevations and 35-40 inches of rain annualy, one doesn't have to go far to find water. The down side to that is high humidity. Hot and sticky in the summer and cool and damp in the winter..
Looks fantastic, love the ponds here and there. The terrain you are working on has a lot of character, very realistic!
Thanks ! The region's main draws are the beaches and water activities. The park and zoo make a pretty good second choice when the weather doesn't allow a quality beach day.
That's is perfect
I'd love to go there
The cattails look incredible, and would do well as the phragmites found in the fresh water marshes on the lower cape. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to access the LEX. I keep running into that darned thinking monkey. I double and triple checked my password, and still haven't been able to figure it out. I'm hoping for help from the admins sometime soon. The site looks to be a treasure trove of good stuff..
By the way, I think it's great you are experimenting with MMPs. All I can say on that front - practice makes perfect. I will recommend one MMP that I could not do without: girafe's cattails (summer version)
They blend in nicely almost anywhere.
Thanks Benedict !
Another great visit to Cape May.
