Hello and welcome to the first update of Haven Cove!!! Today we will be visiting Crown Point, a historical landmark of the city wich is now a reserve park area. The point is located just south of Downtown and Crown tower, the main structure on the point is a retired lighthouse decomisioned recently and turned into a museum. So lets begin:

1.1- 
We'll start the day by waking up at the beautiful Marriot Courtyard, located right on the coast. We will be heading south along Marina Boulevard, along the docks and past downtown.

Introduction

(I decided to post this CJ in the new section. The forum version can be found here.)

Hello and Welcome to my new CJ: Haven Cove! This is my 4th attempt now at a city journal and I hope that this will be very successful. Haven Cove is based off a fictional island located somewhere in the Pacific. The city itself is a mix of sprawling suburbs, rural areas and a dense Urban Core. Throughout this CJ I will be showing you places of interest throughout the region as well as giving you insight into how I build my cities. Overall I hope to create a beautiful and realistic American styled city with as much detail as possible. To achieve this I have downloaded hundreds of files from various sites and if you have any questions about these downloads I will do my best to answer them. I will also do my best to update this journal as much as possible and hopefully I will have a new update every week (but no guarantees 2.gif). The final thing I would like to address is you, Thank you very much for taking the time to view this journal and I hope that you comment! So here we go!...

Pic 0.1- After Miles of open sea and nothing but salt air and sun we have finally reached the Island paradise of Haven Cove.
