Happy 4/20

I know I know i'm a day late, but well, I was celebrating 4/20!  I decided to do this in second life as well by visiting Amsterdam and i'm so glad I did.  This tiny sim offers an amazing joint inspired experience that will make you laugh and capture some great photos.

I AM DONE WITH WINTER!!!!







April 20th and can you believe it, if f%&$ing SNOWED TODAY!!!!!  This Canadian feels like winter is never going to end.  True the snow didn't stay, and I can finally see my tulips in the front yard poking their greenery through, but it doesn't change the fact that it SNOWED TODAY!!!!

So, frustrated, angry and freaking cold, I logged onto second life today and officially declared I am done with winter!  I then proceeded to go through my inventory and find my cutest, barely there summer items to prove how serious I am, and headed to the nearest beach, hoping, that perhaps, if my AV could feel the virtual sun, I would warm up at least a bit in real life.


As some of you know from previous posts, I adore the beach and water in all worlds and could easily devote the rest of my life to living on one as long as I had the money to keep the tequila sunrises coming, so Kanaloa Beach was a delightful place to park myself.

Now I will admit, in rl and sl, i'm kind of a pampered beach bunny.  True in both worlds I love to sail but my time on the beach isn't spent trying to break my neck with sports.  I just want to have some drinks, soak up the sun, and enjoy the sound of the rushing waves.

I can appreciate those who love to surf and water ski to name a few of the sports available, and to those who do, this is certainly your sim.  The first thing you will notice upon arriving is the huge waves rolling into shore that seem to beg for a surf board.  Don't worry, you won't have to look too far, you can find them scattered through out the sim and available for use.  When speaking with owner Watarushore, I learned that he is in rl and sl, devoted to the sport and eagerly wanted to make a sim where all could enjoy not only that, but the feel and calm of the ocean.


This location has been open to the public for two years now, and was scattered with people when I arrived.  Some of which were surfing, other simply enjoying the surroundings.


To my fellow photographers, the sim doesn't provide a huge amount of animated objects, but you will certainly find a stunning back drop to any pose you take with you.  


Now to answer that burning question.................................I loved my time at Kanaloa, I will totally be back and recommend you all go as well, but damn it my hands are still cold in real life.  This mind over matter S&*T didn't work!!!!

- A Winter Story-

Some of you may remember from my previous writings that in real life I live in Canada.  Yes we have long season of what feels like Winter, with snow usually carrying into early spring.  No I don't live in an igloo, nor do I get around town by dog and sled, but I do know how to face some cold weather and know what its like to be snowed into a house.


Currently in my part of Canada, we received 45 cms (17.7 inches) on the first day of Spring!!  Now I no some people think this is the norm for us , but trust me, normally by April I am seeing my lawn popping up through the snow................that is NOT the case this year.  (to you people reading from Florida, one in particular who keeps sending me weather updates, %$#@ You!!)


 Why am I telling you this you may ask?  Besides to give you amusement in my misery?  I'm telling you this so you can understand that when I showed up to shop, I was less then pleased to see a snowy sim greeted me. It feels like this fluffy S&*% is following me everywhere!




I couldn't help but capture pictures, and despite the snow, I was soon caught up in the beauty of this sim.  Perfectly decorated it offers a fantastic back drop to photos or just some landscape shots.



Worth visiting for its beauty not to mention its great show case of designers located in the area.  Make sure you book mark this place.  Happy Shopping and happy Snapping.

HOPPY EASTER

Hoppy Easter

Easter Town
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Townies/122/134/24



Even in Second life, I believe the holidays should be about family.  Its a time to toss aside the daily worries and cares, to have a little fun, and to be around the people who helped to make you who you are.  Its a time to show appreciation for what you have, even if what you have isn't much.  A time to laugh, to reminisce, maybe even get a little goofy because you know you are around the people who love you as is, and not for what you show the world.


I am truly blessed to have such family in second life.  People who realize that the fashion and the photography is just a part of me, and that beneath lays a geeky little country girl.  People who know how to pull the real me out from its shell and make her laugh like the goofy little girl she once was.

Now this review isn't my normal photographic sim, and as you can see I definitely wasn't my normal fashionable self, but I can honestly tell you, that I have not had this much fun in second life in a long time.


Dancing around the May Pole


Such a Colorful Town



Putting my Carrot into over drive


So with my Secondlife Father, who is one of my favorite people in the entire world, and my second life son, who is just a joyous little bundle of love, we equipped ourselves with some Easter Gear and head out to have fun, and OMG what fun we had.



Ok, so you arrive in Easter Town to a world of Color, music, spring, and just Joy.  Your eye doesn't know what to look at first because there is something to do everywhere and it looks like you've fallen into a Saturday Morning Cartoon.


This sim is kid friendly, in fact I encourage you to bring your children here, and there is endless play for adult and child alike.  Just remember adults, it is a family sim, so keep yourself covered and clean up your language in local please, don't ruin this for everyone!


Things to Do:
Eggboat rides....Photo Opts.....Peep Races (omg so fun).....Easter Egg Hunt (each egg is a prize)....Bunny Hop Group Dance....Egg Decorating contest (win massive Linden).....Hoppy Balls.....Carrot Cars....Photos with the Easter Bunny Tina.....Hot air balloon rides....and Jelly Bean Dance.  

There are also activities that aren't mention like some amazing Easter Shopping, and free prizes all over the place.


I can't remember the last time I had this much fun with people that I truly love and who truly love me.  I know for certain though that I don't want to wait till the next holiday to do it again!

P.S - To my Dad (pictured above) and to my son (not pictured) Thank you for being you, for loving me, and for making both of my worlds a much better place.  Happy Easter, I love you both.
To all my Readers, thank you for your continued support (We just broke 7000 Views!!!), and I wish you and yours and amazing Holiday!
Love always
