SL8B -Bears and Spectacular

I have not visited the whole of SL8B, but I am delighted by what I have seen so far, and today I am showing some of what I enjoyed on Bears and Spectacular!

Bears is an island devoted to teddy bears, and there are teddy bears of all colours and all kinds...

SL8B -Astonish

I went around a few of the sims of SL8B, and I will show a sample of the pictures I took over there. First, I could not ignore the build that commemorates the nuclear disaster of Fukushima.

SL8B Astonish


I took the time to explore SL8B Astonish thoroughly. "Through the looking glass" is fun to do. "Shadows and Light" is a great build

SL8B Astonish


and so is Invisible.

SL8B Astonish


I recognize this style as that of Forgotten City...

SL8B Astonish


Daruma Picnic is an amusing interactive build that plays sounds as you walk through spheres

SL8B Astonish


There is quite a bit more to see, and I enjoyed seeing the creativity of SLers. Visit it before it is taken away!

New England -Brewster Magic

As the text of the sim expresses: "White beaches, pine trees lining the cliffs and dunes. There is a peace in the air that brings you into a different dimension. A sky that opens up and pours heaven into an open heart."

This lovely island has several spots where the weary traveller can rest and admire the scenery.

Ajna -Journey

The creator of the sim wants to share his spiritual journey, his evolution, his learning from experience including both successes and failures.

As he says: "My Journey is laid bare here, my soul resides here.. my fears and joys and crazy random thoughts expire here.. I lay this place not for you to understand me.. but to understand yourself more, for i believe you too have followed a similar journey thus far.. joys and sadness.. just we all see different colours."
