These thrill seekers will travel to icy shores in search of the perfect wave, and now it has come to SL found on the beautiful Coral Reef Island.

This stark Arctic scene is surrounded by mountains, broken ice flows, and huge crashing waves for you to surf.

We both had the feeling that if we were to shout an echo would bounce all around the mountains lol

Although there is an atmosphere of dead quiet and isolation here, the sim still retains a feeling of coziness.

So, If you don’t feel like braving icy waters you will find a few quiet spots to sit, relax, and watch the waves roll by.

SL Destinations: 3 Realms of ART

Welcome forward everyone!,

Revan and I are always exploring dozens of sims per day.
We’ve come across so many beautiful & fascinating destinations in Second Life.
Some places are very small, and not much to them to do a full post on,
but still made a big impression on us that we saved landmarks to revisit at another time.

You can imagine the substantial collection we have, we like just about everything lol
With so many LMs in possession, We thought to condense some choice favorites in categories.

Our picks in the “3 Realms” series will be of the Arts in this post.
Art forms in SL are interestingly diverse, With unique perspectives and creativity.
Please take time to support the Art community, refer and patron them frequently.

Look on as we cover the historic, the fun and the interactive.

The Terracotta Soldiers (TP)


This SL replica of ancient funerary art is AMAZING.


Here are the RL facts for this: In 1974 these figures were discovered by local farmers in the Lintong District, Xi’an, Shaanxi province.
The figures include warriors, chariots and horses, & varied in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals.


These terracotta statues represented the armies of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang.
When he passed, They were buried with him to protect the emperor in his afterlife.


The Port (TP)

 PORT circles

Loved Loved Loved this place!
This sim is a mashup of eclectic art galleries & media.


The Port is a sandbox of sorts for those into machinima, Offering LOTs of resources, & helpful tips.

 PORT trees 1201Sunday2_004

It also has exploratory tunnels, caves & interactive art to play with.

 1201Sunday1_009 1201Sunday2_002

Enter the building called the “Pencil factory” to see innovative & successful past projects that were launched in SL.
We haunted this place for a couple of hours LOL, & had a BALL here!

1201Sunday1_001 PORT Cookies Sound
Echoes in the Garden (TP)

 FISH TOO words

This is one of several interactive installs in SL, by Artist Rose Borchovski.
Echoes is a continuation of the story on a character named Beth and her Grandchild Lot.
This sad and haunting tale comes about because of war.

 FISH TOO heads 1 1201Sunday_013

Bound by rules restricting them of what they can and cannot do,
Beth and Lot were forced to flee their home because a war had started.
They were separated in all the calamity, and Beth never found her grandchild again.

 FISH TOO heads pigs 1201Sunday_016

The Artist injects so much emotion into her creations.
You can feel the fear, the loss and pain of an upcoming war and separation.

FISH TOO phone

Other installations by This artist can be found here: ” THE INEVITABILITY OF FATE” “Echoes in the Garden” ” The Arrival” ” Blind”

As always we wish you a great time out there in SL,
Take Care until we read again ❤
