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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Adyeu, Wa pli tar, Swinn-twa! ❤

Following the trail on the Picklesong Island, The Wife and I came upon a ruined theatre full of ghouls sitting in the audience.

0718Thursday_001

We had a bit of fun dancing burlesque for them and having a laugh.

18.07_048 18.07_019
I’d like to point out-Beware, Picklesong has some savory characters there, slightly Adult themed and sinister, But The other Islands are Mild Fable like & Mythical.

It would take a full week to find all the secrets these sims hold.

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
This is a recreation of The Cash family home in Dyess Arkansas as it was during the 1940s.

0715MonRev1
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.

0715Monday_019
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

 Exploring a bit more we come across a piece of Antique Southern Beauty.

A scale model of The Lakeport Plantation House in Lake Village, Arkansas.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20HeritageS/249/121/22

0715MonRev3
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.

0715Monday_004
Opposite of The Lakeport Mansion are tour boats and rafts.
The Raft will take you to the tragic sunken town of Napoleon.
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/ASU%20Virtual%20HeritageS/132/137/24

0715Monday_001

Just stand up when destination reaches its point and walk off the pier to find this RL Historic replica underwater.
There are plenty of signs around to tell you the story of what happened and when.

0715Monday_002 0715Monday_003
If You take the row Boat, You will then tour a serene swamp, great for photos.

0715Monday_007
There is also a wooden shack complete with rocking chairs on the porch to hang out.

 0715Monday_006
I hope you enjoy this fantastic region as we did, It is chocked full of food for thought.
I wish You a GREAT time until we read again!

Solelua Strolls

Ahhh The warmer weather is finally here!,
It’s always summer in SL, but the weather on the outside seems to influence or enhance our experiences inside SL too.

So Since it was warm outside we decided on exploring beaches for the day in SL.

Hubby surprised me with a gift. He sent me this super cute light n airy dress, It was perfect for a stroll on the beach.

0511SatMatreya2way
I so enjoyed this beach, very quiet, Romantic & Secluded.

0511Saturday1_003

0511Saturday1_016

Later in the summer they will convert this beach as a surf & wave park, so it is definitely worth the visit.
You can rez in a small section near the water.

Just drop any pose you like and simply move them in place where you’d want to snap pics like we have.

0511Saturday1_015
Enjoy! & Thanks for looking ❤
