Detailed Cartography: Emerald Cape

Emerald Cape
     The Emerald Cape was the sight of Fairhaven's original lighthouse, which still stands and functions. The cape was so named because of its lush greenery and for the greenish moss and algae which cover many of its rocks. Today, rich houses dot the slopes of the cape, though it is hardly a populous region. The Emerald Cape lighthouse is made of sturdy, native granite, painted white, but the original lens had a greenish tint due to impurities in the glass. Many ship captains and pilots have said that the greenish light is more visible, and so the lenses are now intentionally made with the greenish tint.
     Emerald Cape also has a public ferry to some of the Bel Vista islands, though many areas on the Bel Vista Islands are private property, and inaccessible to the general public.
