I've just seen this on the blog.

I really like the water technique - it's not perfect, but it's novel and adds something different.  I think it works better in the side on view than over the top, but if you mix the 1x2 plates with some others, it might be fantastic.   :pir-classic:

The walkway around the cabin is really excellent; I love that - and I really like the foliage on the island.  Great work.

I love the water technique and the foliage, it's just a great little island that works.  I meant to blog this sooner, back when I indexed it, but I got busy and this MOC got pushed down the forum.  Hopefully this will bring some more life into the conversation.

Great MOC!
Big Cam, I was wondering why you never commented. Thanks, for the blog! I really wanted the focus of the moc to  be the water. It is frickin' hard to show any kind of motion with LEGO parts. I think I did it with this moc. I urge everyone to try the water style. It looks best in person with natural light. I'm not giving up on this water style. I have some idea's for the future with this style. I'm suprised that nobody said anything about the wet sand trails from the row boat's.

For me that is why it works, imperfect water looks more natural.

I was gone for a few days and then I had to go on an indexing spree, I made a mental note to come back, but I must of had to do something and I forgot. The blog is running again at a pretty good pace so hopefully good MOC's like this don't get overlooked again.
