Tour in Wellington

I've probably mentioned in my previous posts that there are 3 different areas in Wellington. I thought I'd give you a glimpse of the town. As in every post, these pictures are thumbnails and you can see bigger versions by clicking the pics.


Here you can see the different areas. The city center is called Wellington, this is the oldest part of the city and the other areas have started developing later. The Wellington area also has the most habitants at the moment. Allerdale is the rural area and the wealthiest wellingtonians live in the Exmoor area.

Wellington


On the far left are two townhouses, habited by the Fieldings and the Coopers (a new family which I'll start playing on round 4). Behind those houses is the Violet Hill Apartments building where the Greenes live. The orange building is Café Casablanca.

In the middle: Police Station, City Hall and Hospital which are built mostly just for hood decoration purposes. The Central Park (in the lower middle) is divided into 3 separate lots. Behind the City Hall is Bluebell Hill Apartments where Stella Harris and Deacon Burrows have just moved. On the right side are the community lots Ka-Ching Shopping Centre, Joie DĂ©licieuse (restaurant) and Twilight Zone (nightclub). The white building in the corner is the Breezy Village Apartments.

Exmoor


On the left is the Whitfield's home and on the right the Harper Mansion. After taking this pic I placed a house next to the Whitfield's house. Hopefully someone will be able to afford it someday.

Allerdale


The Robinson Farm is on the upper left. The opposite lot is the Farmer's Market which is owned by Olivia Robinson. The green-roofed house is the Marlowe family's home.

Summary - Round 3

Once again I've stolen ideas from Sullivan. I love the fact that other bloggers are so kind to let me use their ideas, I seem to lack the imagination these days. Anyways, I'll try to make a summary of all rounds from now on. I'll list major events and link to posts where it happened.

Settling down


Harris

After graduation Stella moves to the new apartment building, Bluebell Hills, in Wellington. The town has gone through a huge change during the time Stella was at Brixton Academy. Many of the old apartment buildings have been demolished and replaced by new ones.

With a little help from my friends

Round 3: University (Regan, Stella and Deacon)
last update/next update

Stella has fallen head over heels for Deacon Burrows. There are some good-looking guys in her drama class but none of them compare to Deacon. When Deacon kisses her the first time, it's like a bolt of lightning going through her body. (Actually they have 3 bolts for each other.) It doesn't take long for Stella to ask Deacon to move in with her and Regan. He's more than happy to - life in the dorms can get quite tiring.

Strawberry fields forever

Round 3: 1986-1990
last update/next update

Olivia and Kurt Robinson are working hard to find a way out of their poor financial situation. Luckily the farm has finally started to produce good quality vegetables.

Olivia spends most of her time in the greenhouse. It seems like an endless job of planting and watering but it's all worth it when she finally gets to harvest the first crops.

Poor Chase! It's not easy being a new dad and working long hours for the military. He's too tired to eat or take a shower or even drag himself to bed.

Amabelle is busy planning her wedding to Chase. They have decided to get married in the summer. Since they want to keep the expenses at minimum, they will get married at home and only invite their closest friends. Amabelle's maid of honor will be Kelsie Jones whom she met at Brixton Academy.

Life in the new home on Daffodil Road starts wonderfully. Vicki gets promoted to paralegal on her first day after the move.

Moving in and out

Bobbie is getting ready for another day at work. She's not much of a cook so usually she just drinks a can of vegetable juice for breakfast.
