SL Destinations: Coral Reef Island

Welcome Winter Warriors!,

Fancy something different from sleigh rides and building snow men?

1217Surf2_004 surf walking on ice

Well here’s a new spin on winter activities that may just be “cool” enough for you!

How about surfing in the cold?!, a Real Life craze for extreme surfers.

1217Surf2_012 18.12_055 surf rev 1217Surf2_019

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.

1217Surf_011 surf ice flow 1217Surf_009

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

1217Surf2_006 surf arch  of ice surf penguins

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: New Toulouse Bayou

Bonjou! Konmen to yê? (Hello!, How are you?)

Today we bring you a bit of early 20th Century Americana.

A wee bit of Louisiana flava called New Toulouse. This region contains 2 sims, One is Urban and the other is Rural.

 1125Bayou4_001

The city is modeled after New Orleans, and is bustling with Voudoun shops, Jazz clubs, Processions, Art & Cuisine, just
like the real thing.
The country or Bayou is where We settled, located on the 2nd sim, and we literally haunted it for days lol.

 1125Bayou4_002 1125Bayou4_006 1125Bayou4_003

We really did enjoy the feel of this Swamp settlement.

 1125Bayou4_014

Bayou House 4 Bayou sunset 2 Bayou Tracks 1

Natural beauty filled this entire sim., From the birds & fauna native to this landscape, to the reptilian mascots that
occupied the waters.

Bayou Heron Bayou purple 3 1125Bayou1_001
The time period they emulate here is b’twix 1920-1925’s rural, When it was pure and simple country living.
Although Louisiana is very diverse, southern LA had 2 larger groups, Cajun & Creole.
Cajuns are French colonists who developed their own distinct lifestyle in the swamps and surrounding areas of South
Louisiana. Intermixed in these colonies were the Creole. Creole can mean anything from individuals born in New Orleans with
French and Spanish ancestry to those who descended from African/Caribbean/French/Spanish heritage.

Bayou Us Point 1 Bayou Horse 1 1125Bayou4_011
It was a pleasant surprise to see them keep it authentic to the way folks would’ve Built Homes & Businesses, or decorated
their yards and houses.

 Bayou House 1 Bayou House 2 Bayou House 3

We recognized African influences in the decor, no doubt brought by the freedom folks as they settled in communities.
I was tickled over The bottle tree that I have known through my own Geechi/Gullah heritage.

BOOPS_BAYOU3

This custom originated in Africa., People believed that bad spirits could be captured in a bottle.
Legend had it that empty glass bottles placed outside, but near, the home could capture roving (usually evil) spirits at
night, and the spirit would be destroyed the next day in the sunshine. One could then cork the bottles and throw them into
the river to wash away the evil spirits.

Of course as time goes on meanings fade.
Not all Folk still believe in such things but the gesture of displaying old customs reminds us of whence we came.

Alot of  decor also showed signs of Christianity or Voudoun beliefs

 Bayou Altar Bayou voodoo tree

This sim is very fascinating, do check out the library and other informative areas to learn more.

We wish you a great time in Bayou country,
This sim is great for RP or to relax in the pretty sights & sounds.

BOOPS_BAYOU1

Adyeu, Wa pli tar, Swinn-twa! ❤
(a Good-Bye, See you later,Take care!)

SL Destinations: Museum Island

Hello & Welcome Exploring Enthusiasts!

keep-calm-its-adventure-time

Today’s post brings us to the beautiful and elegant Museum Island by Carlolello Zapatero.

 1117Museum1_006 1117Museum_009

There are 21 replicas of the world’s richest architectural and historical landmarks of the Mediterranean.

 18.11_002 1117Museum1_026

These ancient wonders are a collection from across France, Iraq, Egypt, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Jordan, & Babylonia of long ago.

 17.11_012 17.11_010 17.11_001

Maps and Directories can be found at the entrance and along the paths as you saunter over the bridges & landscapes warmed by carefully placed sunlight.

 1117Museum1_016 1117Museum1_025 1117Museum1_021

The Textures used on these ancient masterpieces are phenomenal.
The builder took great care in all details, especially with the shadows showing precise depth and realism.

 18.11_016 18.11_014 1117Museum1_017

1117Museum1_013
Each monument will have a board in front, stating the origin and pertinant information of the RL artifact.

 1117Museum1_014 1117Museum1_015

We recommend the 2 automated tours set out.
1 is a walking tour for you and a companion. It will walk you thru the entire Isle not missing one square inch.
It’s really fun to do and if you are like me and Revan, You will try to do it a few more times LOL

 1117Museum1_007

The second is a boat tour that can hold up to 4 avatars. (We had a friendly avatar join us lol~ Hello Morgan Darkrose!)
This tour will encircle and weave around and through the island to get another perspective of all its beauty.

 1117Museum_004 1117Museum_008

We hope you enjoy as we have, This sim has been a favorite of mine for 2yrs and counting, Its a dbl thumbs up approval rating ❤
Take care until we read again ❤

Ravenscroft is the home & creativity of Sir Musgrave Mondegreen and his partner Saryn.

 ravens 6

The peaceful grounds have a romantic feel and is the perfect spot to relax in.

 0701Monday_005

They graciously welcome the public to explore the grounds but do ask that visitors do not enter the Manor house unless invited.

0701Monday_004 0701Monday_010

 0701Monday_006

This romantic Isle has areas to socialize, a leisurely tour by train, and a hidden tunnel with a room to spend time in.
(walk over the manhole cover at landing area to enter the tunnel).

 0701Monday_001 ravens 5

When you make your way through the tunnel, the other end will bring you to the boat tour.

SL Destinations: Overto Omonto

10072013Metales_009

Dark of Day, Darkest Nights
Melancholy souls in their Blithe…

06.10_081 06.10_083

Lonely is the companion here.
No way out is their fear.

06.10_091

Their Best Friend is called Desperation
While settled at Home in Isolation.

06.10_097

Some Sing to elevate
Some turn to fortune telling to speculate
giving hope, where none is found.

06.10_099 06.10_102

Some hold on to faded pasts
while wearing Bitter Masks

06.10_093

Empty Voids & Loss Deficient
Disappointment ongoing and consistent

06.10_079 06.10_112

The others here… Did they seek,…a way out,… of being tired and meek?

10072013Metales_003
Stop & Take a look at the Dark & Mysterious Overto Omonto sim, designed by Romy Nayar.
You as the visitor can make a difference for these poor characters.

06.10_088
There is a puzzle to solve amongst the characters.
Each one of them holds a keyword that collectively Will open a door to freedom.

10072013Metales_006 10072013Metales_007
This sim although shadowy is visually appealing..It’s like walking into a Sepia photograph.
We recommend this art install as a addition to your exploring list.

SL Destinations: Autumn Equinox

Solstice Tidings One & All!,

This post is about one of our mutually favorite times of the year, Fall.

Alurel 2
September 22-23, marks the Autumn Solstice., It’s the closure of summer, The reap of harvests, Enjoyment of colors on
changing leaves, And preparation of oneself both physically and mentally for the colder months ahead.

 Alurel 1

This change is celebrated by many different cultures all over the world in several ways.
In the U.K. for example where Revan is from, People visit the World Famous site called Stonehedge.

Henge 2
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England.
It is generally accepted that Stonehenge was an ancient spiritual centre, and many people congregate to welcome the sun and
the new seasons.

Henge 6 0922Solstice_008 Henge 5

Revan and I dressed in manner and explored SL in search for nostalgic & picturesque Fall sims.

Village 2 Alurel 3
The photo’s in this post came from 4 of the sims we enjoyed.LM’s are included below.
**SL’s Stonehedge, A cute little village on a sim called Fable, A gorgeous sim called the Kingdom of Alurel, and We had
a ball dancing to Medieval Flutes at The Renaissance Faire Isle.**

Village 3 0922Solstice_015 0922Solstice_011

I also wrote a small poem about the Event. 🙂

 0922Solstic3_014 0922Solstic3_016

A Season of Mellow has been ushered in.
Like an orchestra, Autumn’s song begins.

Alurel 5
Nature’s Crescendo starts to build
Welcoming her song are those of guild.

0922Solstic2_002
Woodsman, Farmers, Gatherers of like.
Meeting on Meadow, travel by Pike.

Village 1
Some may view this all as a Pagan’s delight,
But it is just respect of impending dark while giving thanks to sunlight.

Alurel 6
Celebratory Feasts, Dancing in Cheer.
It is Autumnal Equinox and finally here.

SL Destinations: Mainland Mayhem Part 2 of 3

Fall In Travel Troopers,
Its time for Part 2 of 3 Mainland Mayhem!

Today we continue with our operational maneuvers thru the mainland.
Our strategic goal is to pin point and locate interesting sims for your delight and eradicate our enemy- boredom!

CHO

Marching forward & Boots down we enter Kissling, a sim fortified with older shops running since 2003.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kissling/138/59/71
Feel Free To Browse, & Save a Linden or 2. There are very unique items here. (I’ve even found a Raggedy Ann Doll!)

Mainland Mayhem2 10

Kissling is a quirky town with hyper cars, trucks and taxis that WHIZZ around corners and up and down each street very quickly.

Mainland Mayhem2 9 Mainland Mayhem2 7

While you wait by the cake shop you will notice a trolley or tour bus beckoning for you to board it.
Go ahead hop on! It moves very quickly, so hang on to your Cyrup (wig), As It travels across sim borders onto several towns.

Mainland Mayhem2 8

When the trolley paused in The region of Boardman, We decided to take a look around & investigate.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Boardman/191/20/24

Mainland Mayhem2 6
This is A small suburban community set in a nice, quiet region without stores and looming towers.
They have an Open Air Market, A Town Hall run by Jack Linden, A Quaint Church, which has small town USA’s charm and appeal.

0814WED4_009

Wander the Boardman sim. You can rez in designated areas, set out vehicles to drive, or boats to navigate the long meandering river into other sims.
********************************************************************
Our next tour of duty brings us to Frog Rd. The LM provided is the starting point.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mavericks/71/42/32
Here you may rez your own vehicle, or board the idle city bus.

Mainland Mayhem2 2

This Bus can hold up to as many friends that you bring with you, and will carry you all on a very long scenic route past unusual builds, stretched bridges, streams & mountains.

The Mainland holds some of SL’s oddest & oldest communities,

Mainland Mayhem2 1
If any of the lands piques your curiosity then by all means saddle up and explore!

*********************************************************************
Last but not least of the fun, is Rizal.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rizal/58/148/32
Rizal is a play centre with many attractions.

0807Wed_001

Set like a lake front amusement Park, You will be entertained by food stands that give out food.
An Interactive Playground, Hedge Maze, Bumper Boats and our favorite the giant Piano keys.

0814WED3_002 0814WED3_003

This was big time fun as we played out notes while dancing on the keys lol.

0814WED3_005 Mainland Mayhem2 3
