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 ❤

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: Historic Replicas by ASU

Welcome All!
Revan here :), The Wife and I were feeling a bit Rockabilly Retro today, So I searched for a sim to fit our mood.
I came across a true Gem., The Arkansas State University had 2 sims that fit our theme perfectly.

0715MonRev11
What a VAST destination! We got more than we expected. There are actually 6 sims Total owned by ASU., 2 campus, including an
orientaion area with Art Gallery, 3 historic recreations by Painter Meriman and 1 set aside as a Leisure sim with Beach.

0715Monday_011
The Regions have MANY points of interest, Too numerous to cover all in one post,

But We will highlight the spots we found enjoyable.

You may begin at ASU’s Virtual Campus Start point.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20Campus/160/96/24

0715MonRev12
Here you will find unusual Art Exhibits and Interactive galleries.
Be sure to Transport to each area in the Art Building via the large banner flags in front.
We had a great time on the turtle ride touring a giant Aquarium!

 0715MonRev6

Fascinating Historic Information with RL Pics can be seen at The Southern Tenant Farmer’s Museum which highlights the work
of John L. Handcox.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20Heritage/136/61/25

0715MonRev7
John L. Handcox (1904-1992); was a Great Depression-era tenant farmer and union advocate from Arkansas renowned for his
politically charged songs and poetry.

This place is AMAZING!, They have even replicated Ernest Hemingway’s Studio.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20Heritage/49/138/22

0715Monday_015
During the 1930s A barn was converted into a studio to give Hemingway privacy for writing.
Portions of one of his most famous novels, A Farewell to Arms, and several short stories were written in this studio.

0715MonRev13

Moving along, We came across Country Music Singer Johnny Cash’s boyhood home in Dyess Circle.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Dyess%20Colony/136/102/23

0715MonRev9 0715MonRev8

Check out the the rest of this town. There’s a Pop-shop, Cinema, & other colony display homes here, It’s like a step back
in time.

Something I found interesting was that The University actually owns Mr.Cash’s childhood home & The Dyess Circle Community;
Read about it here => http://arkansasheritagesites.astate.edu/AHS/Dyess.html

This palatial estate is One of Arkansas’ premiere historic structures.
Lakeport is the only remaining Arkansas plantation home set on the Mississippi River.
It was built in 1859 for Lycurgus and Lydia Taylor Johnson, Who were part of a political dynasty that extended from
Virginia to Kentucky to Arkansas.

Jump on the Horse & Carriage awaiting you for a tour around the estate with cotton fields.

Opposite of The Lakeport Mansion are tour boats and rafts.
The Raft will take you to the tragic sunken town of Napoleon.

There are plenty of signs around to tell you the story of what happened and when.
