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

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: Forgotten City

Greetings fellow adventurers,

04.08_steam12

Today the Wife and I ventured into the AMAZING Forgotten City.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_007

04.08_steam11

A Steampunk world of Gears and Steam, Industry and Automatons,

04.08_steam10

04.08_steam20

Air Ships and Rockets set over many levels.

04.08_steam9

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in settings inspired by The Industrialized Western Civilization during the 19th century’s British Victorian era or America’s “Wild West”.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_022

From the starting point in the lower City you will find information and a teleporter to the many other activities and points of interest.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_004

We started our visit by taking in the sights by Hot Air balloon, and then by Boat through the winding canals.

04.08_steam19 0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_034

Brass Autobot Citizens can be found occupied, or walking the streets tending to the workings of the city, along with many clockwork cats.

04.08_steam17 04.08_steam7

On the Toy Factory’s platform you are able to buy many of the vehicles, buildings and objects found around the city.

Here you can sit and enjoy some interactive games.

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_014

There is a racing track with cars free to rez, or if you fancy your chances fighting extraterrestrials, an Alien hunt game.

04.08_steam21

Still feeling in the mood for activities? Why not take a chair lift to the mountain summit and compete with friends in the long distance ski jump.

 

04.08_steam1

After that you can dance away into the small hours in the ballroom or relax at the sausage stand.

04.08_steam2

Many of the buildings are available to rent so if you enjoy your visit as much as we did you may want to make your home there too!

0803Saturday_ForgottenCity_016

 

‘Til the next time 🙂

Hello & Welcome Everyone!
Here we are!, Welcome to Utah!

I am here in the city enjoying the holiday festivities and
attraction sights. The nearby mountains, historical and religious
landmarks, make Salt Lake city a prominent tourist attraction.

The sims I visited to rep Utah were full of things to do just
like the city itself. There were Ferris wheels, Horse drawn Wagon
rides, Sleds you can rezz, a Flying Santa Sleigh that toured the
sim, Ski lifts and downhill skiing with free boots and poles.

Check out both places they are worth it and a nice place to hang
out with your favorite crowd.
