It's so nice... I wanna hear the same song twice...
About this creation
I liked how the original Shannonia turned out well enough to build an expansion, but this will be it. My small green and tan tiles and 1x1 slopes, the backbone of my microarchitecture, are almost completely wiped out. If I revisit Shannonia again it will probably be far in the future, and in another part of town.
But while I've got you here, let's continue further down Shannonia's fabled Oceanside Strip...

   Here you clearly see the lack of pieces at work: a lot more beach and ocean.

   This page brought to you by Ballers sports bar. Try the Nuclear Heartburn Party Platter and Bottomless Pitcher.



Enlarge image
   The orange-roofed building is your average convenience store. The yellow and white one is Crazy Larry's Tattoo Parlor, Wedding Chapel, and Kite Shop.



Enlarge image
   One of those slices of Americana known and reviled the world over, the Shannonia Barber Shop boasts the world's largest barber pole. No, it's really the historic lighthouse. The rocky promontory is another result of a lack of tiles.



Enlarge image
   A seamless integration of the two modules, if not for my one dark blay and one brown baseplate.



Enlarge image
   The Strip. I know what you're thinking: it all looks so good, where do I blow my money first?



Enlarge image
   Los Baratos budget lodge. Nothing fancy, but right on the beach.



Enlarge image
   A solemn silence please, at the Marion Morrison Memorial Monument. Dedicated to the plight of boychildren given feminine names everywhere. The male Tracys, Staceys, Carrolls, Kims, Danas, and yes, Shannons of the world can find catharsis here.

   Reflecting pool and fountain. And in case you were wondering, Marion Morrison was the birth name of one John Wayne.



Enlarge image
   Heading north on Ocean Avenue. Not named after that "other" Shannon, though he likes to impress people at parties by saying it is.
Hm. Must be a glitch in the matrix.



Enlarge image
   May we recommend the helicopter tour once again?



Enlarge image
   Prometheus Tower hotel. Built solely as a lightning rod to protect the Monolith, previously the tallest building around.



Enlarge image
   With its spire the Prometheus is just taller.



Enlarge image
   Ah, the Red House. Due to all the minors on this site, I can't tell you exactly what transpires inside. Let's just say that the lonely and/or drunken gentleman will always find companionship within. Its site next door to the sports bar (and across the street from the wedding chapel) is no coincidence.



Enlarge image
   The yellow building with the black roof is Scarpacci's. Try the four cheese lasagna.



Enlarge image
   The brown one is the Back Porch Barbecue. Try the slow-cooked ribs in honey mesquite sauce.



Enlarge image
   Waffle Stompers Bar and Billiards. Try not to use the restrooms.



Enlarge image
   Looking out the window on the plane ride home, lighter in the wallet, and hopefully in spirit as well. Come see us again soon!

Hm... I find this very amusing. I liked your captions and the complexity of something so small. Commander Riker of the Enterprise says, "Captain, I think we've found a new place to take the crew for shore leave, and we might actually get a few extras on the way!" So, i hope you don't mind if my Star Trek people come there for their vacations? But anyways this is awesome and you have a uniquely random sense of humor... Keep it up!

Nice captions, even though I usually only like minifig-scale creations...

I love the memorial, it's so funny. Great microscale buildings and excellent descriptions to accompany.

Tattoos, weddings, and kites: if only it were that convenient.
