36. Coastal Living

And now the update that was set up by last week's episode. We get a peek at life on the Pacific Coast.

Region: Somewhere on the shore of the Great Sea.

Area/Tile: Cannon Beach.

(reminder: PLEASE CLICK IMAGES IF YOU WANT TO VIEW IN FULL RESOLUTION! ~Thanks.)

01. The south side of Cannon Beach.

02. The south end of town tapers off in a row of houses along the beach frontage road.

03. There's another neighborhood on the north side of town across the river.

04. It has some bonafide beach bum shacks.

05. And yet more small beach houses crammed together as close to the beach as it's safe to build.

That is ridiculously beautiful!

I never been there, but I sort of get a northwestern US feel, dont know if Im right or wrong.

Your beach is just about the most realistic one I have ever seen :)

How I missed your previous updates, I have no idea. It happens though, apparently. They looked great, of course, Cannon Beach was cool, but I think I like this one the best. Ecola Rocks is beautiful, and I love that cliff.

How are your teams doing? Who do you root for? I'm a Midwestern boy, so I root for the Buckeyes and Spartans, and my hometown team the Toledo Rockets.

Very nice and careful use of MMP and your selection of BATs. Brilliant especially with the one with the kayaks and fires and the second pic of the highway transition :D
