We start at a rocky rise formed in the joined corners of Dido, Anath, Suniaton, and Hanno, centered by a eucalyptus tree and adorned with Linden ferns. The sim of Dido is the location of my garden-temple, only about 100 meters from here to the nnw. Baker Bloch is still very close to his new home. His goal tonight: to explore the harbor area to the southwest of Dido. He was partially successful.
This wall Baker bikes along straddles the border between Dido (north) and Hanno (south). Nautilus City’s seemingly everpresent dark and light sculptpy cypresses have been planted on each side.
Just west, and still along the same border: a row of eucalyptus and green cypress trees. Baker pauses to contemplate the meaning of a disjoined piece of wall. Ruins like this dot the island city; really cool.
Then in the next block to the west, he finds a long, rectangular body of water, about 5 feet in depth, or up to Baker’s neck as he’s checking now. We’re still just traveling along the Dido-Hanno border.
Across the lane and in a forested enclave, Baker sneaks a peak into a frosted set of windows of what he thought was a small house at the time, but can’t really make out what’s inside. As he’s checking behind himself today again, he finds that it is a garage or hanger for, presently, a small helicopter, 3 tiny planes, and a convertible sports car. On the other side of the garage is a miniature runway about 60 meters long, complete with landing lights.
At the southwest corner of the same property is this highly detailed, 10 prim brown tree of unknown species. The leaves and branches of the tree are actually animated, as if waving in a breeze.
Another row of Linden trees (brown and green cypresses) along the western boundary of Hanno, where it meets up with Yamm.
And it is in Yamm where Baker Bloch reaches the harbor area.
He skirts past two squares of Linden vegetation — tight clusters of plumeria surrounding two central green cypresses in each case — to reach this interesting terrain mound projecting from the pavement.
He briefly perches on top to take in the view.*
Hucka D. later informed me that the queerly placed terrain projection actually has a name: 12 Lb (Pound) Mound, resonant with 12 Oz Mouse of course. He’s says it’s purposely created by the founding Lindens to help aesthetically compensate a mistake in the placement of the two accompanying vegetation squares to the immediate north that Baker just biked past here.
