Growing up, my father had a small airplane and he used to take us up in it. I always loved looking at the landscape and seeing how the different fields and farms looked like little contained boxes and were all different colors. Even though I didn't think of this as a typical map, I kept coming back to this idea, so I just went with it.
The blue is supposed to be a body of water and the rest are different "crops." There's a little sailor in there too. I have also been working on hexagons lately and decided it would be cute to throw them in as some little "landmark" or key code type things. There's a sail boat, an anchor, mushrooms, a bee, and a rooster (what farm is complete without a rooster?!).
It isn't perfect and it certainly doesn't look like a typical map, but I hope Anne is happy with it anyway! :)
PS. My friend suggested I do a map of 1943 Europe and sent me this link as a guide. He wanted me to make sure I included every single arrow. I vetoed that idea, as you can see. A little too complicated for my taste. ;)
