Lemon Beach -It's a new dawn

Lemon Beach has a orangish-yellow tinge to the sky, the kind of sky I saw at sunset recently which made me stop to look. It has some curious micro-climate: it was snowing in one area, and I loved it for the snow. I also liked the signs of erosion on the slopes.

Five years old today!

My blog is five years old today. Time to pause and reflect. I have been blogging mostly for myself, a challenge to use my time on Second Life to share the amazing builds of this virtual world. I did this without thoughts of making money from my blogging (hence the lack of ads). I am humbled that I got so many followers over time. Now though, I am no longer able to spend so much time on Second Life or on the blog, and I will slow down. I will post here no more than three or four times a month. Thank you so much for all those who take the time to check this blog!

Eryn Vorn

This is another sim in the CALAS GALADHON park. As all others, it is a beauty made of forests, lakes, marshes and rivers. (Note: the pictures were taken this year, not in 2014)

Appleberry -Fruit Islands Tropical Rainforest

The rainforest is a mix of African and South American rainforest (from the bird species). I must say that sound wise it is also very good, it did remind me of my work in the rainforest of SouthEast Asia. The main difference is that the canopy would be continuous with very few breaks. I hope you will enjoy this region.

Laluna Island -Frisland

I was wondering if Frisland would have a new appearance this fall. I was not disappointed.

Warm Springs

The text of the sim says: "Come by ferry to the stunning Warm Springs, a beach isle full of intertwined banyan trees and live oaks and cliffs overlooking the sea." Fall has arrived.

Checkmate -The Vineyard

As described so well by the text of the sim: "A rambling vineyard enveloped by a hazy sky. Wander through the grapes as they soak up the sun, producing the best vintage of pixel wine on the grid."

Brandywine Bay -Urban WarBug

I had not blogged a sim about flying in a while... as the text of the sim explains: ""WARBUG - Engage in air combat, bombing missions, or just blow things up! All WarBug plane shoot-downs will be recorded at the WarBug website. Many of the items scattered throughout the sim will explode when touched, shot or bombed." There are several levels to the sim.
