is listed under medium houses on Antonia Bayle. The owner is Fraumaus and her Husband Herrmaus.

Originally  the couple lived in  Hallas  but soon  Fraumaus started to complain  that it is far to cold there and that she feels depressed

without the green of plants and the sweet perfume of flowers, the sound of birds and bees and the warmth of sunshine.

She started to dream of a  better life out there  with fishing, growing veggies and raising live stock,  baking, making

 all their stuff themselves  and of course make cheese!!!. Never ending cheeses in all variations.

She sent Herrmaus for an expedition carefully packing his rucksack and he came back one day telling her that  he had found the perfect place.

The only drawback  it has, he says: "There is that weird Aunty Spotted Green, the owner of the island, who would only sell

 it if she could live there in the hollow tree for the rest of her life". "What do you think?"

Fraumaus was sceptical  but then gave in and said: "OK let's give it a try, after all she is just a Troll, how can she harm us...?"

This said, they took the New Halas Passenger Train and traveled several days leaving the cold and icy homeland behind.

(credits to Dawnstrike for using her train  => http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...topic_id=510944,

for this screen shots. I hope you don't mind we took this screenies but it was too tempting)

After several months of hard work building houses and huts and spending all their savings, a dream became slowly true.... Their paradise.When you arrive at the docks you see immediatly what one of the hobbies of Herrmaus is and how the mouses and any visitor benefit from it.

Here is the space Aunty Spotted Green claimed  and we will stay off there, as trolls are known to be always hungry.

Here they grow veggies and have even horses to help them with the hard work and also harvests on the fields.

A lot of their time took the building of the huts and stables  before they even could think about being able  to live self-sustaining.

By chance they learned  how to trap a bee queen and started their own honey making  which turned out to be usefull later in their bakery.

Another hobby of Herrmaus  shows here. The hidden brewery

Cows and pigs and many other farm animals (and some not so nice ones) live happily along with the couple 

 and help them make their own goodies like:

Cakes and Bread:

and of course  "Cheeses!!!!"

and apart from sometimes  unexpected visitors (gobbel gobbel) they feel happy and content hoping Aunty Spotted Green is not coming to often for a breakfast=).

I hope you will enjoy the little island  and see you soon for a freshly smoked fish, some cake or muffins and of course cheese....

Greetings Mu!

Awe how cute, what a great story!  I am glad you were able to use the New Halas Passenger Train!  It's a cozy and luxurious way to get around Norrath and the prices are reasonable too.  Love the beehive on your Vale Delight.  So cute!

Wonderful story! I really like what you have done with your new island. The bakery is very nice and I love the barn and the fish racks.

Hello,

Thanks a lot all for your nice comments. This island was actually the first place for a long time where I immediatly knew what I wanted to do, place and what feel I wanted to have it  So the more I am happy some other people liked it as well.

Greetings Mu!
