We went back to Quicksand Cove last night, and I explored the area a bit. It turns out that QC (as it is informally known) does not occupy the entire sim; it's just one parcel, and there are neighboring ones (naturally).

I then went up the mountainside as morning's dawn gave way to forenoon's sun, but this is about as far as I got:
