DOWNLOAD--Summer Place (Alternate) & Skagen Family

Summer Island was the second of four tiny islands designed to give us the feel of actually having some SEASONS in our game until the real thing came along. Wednesday, June 20, was the first day of Summer for 2012. This island was originally posted for download to correspond to that event. This is a public forum.

This lot was created by Liz, before the lot footprints were set, as a tribute to a place she and her husband Mike love in Denmark. I altered it slightly to fit into our island plans.

The real Skagen is a fishing port at the north tip of Denmark. In the resort town of Skagen you can watch an amazing natural phenomenon. This city is the northernmost point of Denmark, where the Baltic and North Seas meet. The two opposing tides in this place can not merge because they have different densities.

Here's what Freggi's lot looked like originally.

Here are pictures of how the lot was changed slightly, in order to fit into the Summer Island scenario.

Since we standardized the residential lot names for Summer Island, the family who lives there has been given the surname of Skagen, to represent Liz' original intentions. I created the Skagens to live in this very special lot.

Fisker and Havengel both grew up in fishing towns. When they met, as young adults, they quickly fell in love and married. Now they have moved to Summer Island where they intend to spend their time fishing and perhaps running their own angler's business, while raising a family, as well. Fisker would really love to also present the perfect private aquarium at some time in the future, while Havengel would just love to have her large family surround her as she grows old.

Fisker (whose name means "Fisher," or "Angler") loves the outdoors. He his disciplined, good, and charismatic. He is also (as mentioned) a born angler. Fisker loves country music, could eat grilled salmon every day, and really enjoys the color spice brown (or any shade of brown, for that matter). His clothing (from everyday, right down to his skivvies) reflects that preference.

Havengel (whose name means "Angel," or possibly "Angel of Peace") has a great sense of humor. She is family-oriented, keeps a neat house, and is considered a good friend to all. She, too, is an angler--born and bred. Fisker calls her his "Angelfish," by the way. Havengel loves country music like Fisker, but her favorite food is a yummy fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Her favorite color matches her beautiful violet eyes, and she wears that color as often as possible.
