Travelogue: Stella Maris, Numantia, and Numantia Maris

Clustered to the west of the Caledon mainland lie three islands. The first, Caledon Stella Maris, is Lady Patty Poppy's sanctuary.

A small sky city hovers over the land:

High on a tor is a statue of a knight:

The flora are unusual…and a little bubbly:

A house is integrated under the stone bridge:

Next to Stella Maris is the "neighbor and ally" to Caledon, Numantia (along with Numantia Maris), owned by Mr. Wordsmith Jarvinen and Miss Stonehedg Magic. The area is dominated by a castle sited on the highest point of the islands:

The climate is similar to that in the Mediterranean, and the architecture is inspired by the Celtic Iberian city of the same name that held out against the Romans for several decades before falling after a 13 month siege in 133 B.C.

The terraced landscape provides stunning views:

Nearer the water, the villas are charming:

Across the water, in Numantia Maris, lies the airship dock:

Does this mean the Numantia bar doesn't serve a drink made with vodka, orange and cranberry juices, and peach schnapps?
