Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Swanbridge to Riun Rol

For the 8th step on my circumnavigation of Gaeta V, I retook the road at Swanbridge, where I landed at the dock and rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Swanbridge/165/30/22) last time. Here Route 7 is continued as the familiar “Beach road” by Abnor Mole.

Two marvellous statues, this one is “The Guardian Statue Red Granite – Cerridwen’s Cauldron Creations” by Elicio Ember, were protecting some bare land for rent. Read more about the remarkable stuff from Cerridwen’s Cauldron on http://cerridwenscauldronvirtualart.blogspot.com/.

There is no rezz zone on the border to Joxich. In this region then I passed a lot of small parcels, some with banlines up. Nothing special to see along the road, until this wide and strangely low decorated ranch came into view.

It is “Mo’s Breeding Ranch – Welcome! Make yourselves at home while your tour my Breeding Stables! Designed with Low Prim and Working Permission Doors! Special Feature includes, range set with Amaretto horses! ” owned by Mirella Alessa and claimed dec 12 2011. There were some very exotic animals owned by Morandi Gabardini on display when I passed. On one side of the road were horses.

Dogs on the other side of the road 😉

The rezz zone in the next region, Oxitage, at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Oxitage/244/5/26), is extended over the whole stretch of the road through the SE corner of the sim to the border to Frostar. It is not continued there .

Frostar is a Linden owned sea region with a very simple but beautiful palmbeach and some huts. Just at the “Pier Section 3 (Shack)” by Silent Mole, a small rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Frostar/166/33/21) lets you water your boat for a tour around the neighboring water regions. On the road, the next rezz zone is to find at the border to Warbunton at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Frostar/165/248/26).

There were a lot of parcels owned by Boonwal Hirano set to the Beach Point group along the road there, perhaps for rent. One parcel was set to the “PALLAS GAY GYM & SAUNA (Gay Cruising, Gay Club) – Chill, relax, gay sex, workout, gay twinks, GBLT, gay bath house, gay sauna, gay gym, gay newbie friendly, gay video lounge, gay club, gay clubs, gay disco, gay place, gay guys, gay spa, gay, gay bar,age verified only, gay BDSM, gay dance studio”, but it had no building on the ground. Probably they are located up in the sky, there seems to be some heavy traffic on the parcel 😉

Again a long stretched rezz zone through the whole NW corner of Devon Rex at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Devon%20Rex/8/216/24). Devon Rex is a Linden owned sea region with a bare beach 😦 Next region is Tonkinese, but there were banlines on both side of the road through the whole region, although half of the ground was bare, on parcels without any description in the profile. I do not understand, why such people have to buy land on the road 😦

Nothing noteworthy too in the next region. The usual rezz zone on the border is to find at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Toyger/103/6/24). On the landside of the road through Toyger was running the wall of an elevated landingstrip on a large parcel just claimed dec 18 2011 by Tetsuya Juliana. The parcel description wasn’t updated yet, it was still named “Abandoned Land – For Sale” 😉 On seaside of the road, some smaller parcels and residences, rather heartless decorated.

Then at the border, I arrived at a rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Geoffroy/147/12/24), wich again stretched along the whole length of the road through this region.

On the parcel “+,.::*McCallen International N*::.,+” owned by the McCallen International group, were some nice boats docked, ready to race 😉

Here in Geoffroy, the road already ends again and I had to pack the Steam Roller and water the Talakin boat on the Dock at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Geoffroy/147/113/22) to continue the trip. And the part that followed, did truly more than compensate all the mediocrity before 😉

First along the waterway came the beautiful parcel “Caroline’s Rose – visitors are welcome here, boats are ok. rez on the Linden waterway. autoreturn 10 Some meshes”, set to the Downstream Property group. The whole stretch of the canal through Geoffroy is set as rezz zone, like the road was.

The “BLACKSPOT Spray Sailboat v 5.0” by Lia Woodget is docked on an island created by Georgette Sands of the Downstream Property group.

In the next region Korat, the parcel named “SEA STARR”, was owned by Lance Windlow and generous decorated to very different landscapes. It resulted a really extensive composition – but of good taste 😉

From Lance Windlows profile: “I am a live SL entertainer. I do rock, country, blues, standards and originals. With my sexy dancers, special effects and sense of humor, I put on a show you will not soon forget. My manager is Adina46 Magic, who is also my beautiful wife, the woman I waited a lifetime to find. Contact her for booking information. Stream: http://174.132.198.195:8242, Web Site: www.lance-music.com, You Tube: www.youtube.com/lancewindlow“. The parcels in this region were all set to his Windlows Forever group.

Just on the waterway was located this “Tropic Dream Paradise Cave 25×25 M Footprim 161 Prim 2” by FelixvonKotwitz Alter.

The Windlow land was open to the public and had building enabled, only the house was restricted. Some of the parcels were already claimed in july 2009.

Again, the whole stretch of the canal through Korat at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Korat/124/87/21) is set as rezz zone with 10′ return time. But this is not continued into the next region, Oghus. This one is a Linden owned, not (yet) decorated ocean region. Route 7 runs just through the SE corner there to the next region, Qyest.

On landside in Qyest was located the beautiful beach of “Curtain @ ! MiLa ‘s Creations – Flexi Scripted Prim & Sculpted Curtain, Smooth & Realistic Sliding, Highly Detailed, Window Shades, Blind, Draperie, Cortinas, gordijnen, rideaux, Vorhänge, Tende, Texture, Rugs, Furniture, Bangles, Hut, Free, Beach, Gift, Lucky Chair, Christmas Gift” created by Minou Laks, set to the MiLa’s Creations group. There was no shop on the ground, just this beautiful shore with a marvellous view over the canal to the sea 😉

The waterway then was running along the backside of a waterfall, the “DC Designs – Twin Sister Falls (S)(On-Sim)” by Denny Chrome. It was located on the parcel to “Jenny’s Beach Main House – Protected Waterfront – 8192 sqm – 1875 Prims – Great Sailing Lot – Mature / Moderate No Covenant – Residential / Commercial”. This one and the other parcels here were owned by the Guevara Ltd group, the places created by Fiddlejenny Rain, the founder of the group.

The canal in front of the waterfall was open to the public to pass to Riun Rol. In this Linden owned sea region again, the whole stretch of the waterway to Route 7 is again set as rezz zone. You find it at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Riun%20Rol/79/7/21). Here I will continue the trip next time – there is still some water to cross to the next dock. But after this long leg, I believe I’m able to finish the circle in 2 portions 😉

Until the next step then,

be nice and have fun …

Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Japarid to Swanbridge

For the 7th step on my trip around this subcontinent, I retook the road at Japarid, where I stopped at the road junction and rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Japarid/132/243/31) last time. On this part of the route, I will travel through 14 regions, so expect a rather longish post again 😉

This nice building is the “Lacie Dayz Main Store – Casual fashion Jeans Tops Shirts Blouses Pants Skirts Dresses Jewelry Mens Womens Tshirts Sexy Clothes Boots Shoes Denim Corset Lace” owned by Scottie Criss, from her profile pick: “Just a little place where I hang out and make stuff. Its not a huge chain of stores just my little corner of SL. Come on by and have a look I think you’ll like what you’ll find. Each item is an expression of my art and I put my heart and soul into all of it.”

On the region border to Crinkle, I passed the next rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Crinkle/1/220/31). There, the “Bar Yin Yang & KittyCats CAFE – KittyCats kittycat kitten pet breed. new born kitty box SALE. 2 traits Box is just 100L$. 3 traits is 150L$. we have BAR at sky. enjoy :-)” set to the NEW Yin Yang group, has moved skywards, the floor was left almost bare.

A lot more welcoming to the traveller on the road was then the parcel just at the next region border. The “Zeeva’s Retreat – Event center, dance club, art gallery — also a place to launch your car or motorbike from (look for rez section near garage). Also a Zyngo machine in lounge. Need a car? IM me and I’ll send you a free one. Home to Senna Image Studio”, owned by Zeeva Quitessa.

Take care, the rezz zone there at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Crinkle/251/168/30) is a really short one, as it is not continued into the next region Venn. A sad amount of empty, bare or abandoned land there …

Next to the road in Venn, I passed a parcel to advertise the “Heaton Research Books in Second Life – Here you can obtain the sample scripts for all of our second life books. Learn Linden Scripting Language. For more information visit http://www.heatonresearch.com“. From the website: “Second Life is another area of interest for Heaton Research. Second Life is a “virtual world” where avatars can explore virtual land “owned” and created by other avatars. What is particularly interesting about Second Life is that very complex 3D objects can be created in the Second Life world. These objects can be scripted using a somewhat primitive computer language named Linden Scripting Language (LSL). I published several books on LSL programming. I also use Second Life as a platform for AI research. Heaton Research maintains several islands in Second Life.” The parcel and the objects are owned by Encog Dod. Learn more about his rl on http://www.jeffheaton.com/.

There was the usual rezz zone on the next region border at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Routley/10/77/28),  Mr. Abnor Mole only forgot to place the according signs 😉

Two beautiful designed stores next on the road. On landside the “Annika, Cave, caves, waterfall, waterfalls, grottos, gorean – Designing unique realistic nature prefabs” created by Bitsy Giano. The parcel is set to the Annika Land group like the parcel on the other side of the road.

There was located the “Sci-fi, Scifi, Industrial, Urban – Space Port Parts – sci fi sci-fi scifi science fiction space ship space station Digital art textures Industrial Urban Scifi prefab build cryo bed high tech scifi turret engine cyber Fan Rockets doors Jeans scifi Reactor Sci fi builders pack Cargo”, created and stuffed by Raymon Baran. If you are looking for fullperm prefabs to any kind of spacebased creations, I recommend to make first a visit here 😉

The road crosses at the rezz zone (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Plumpton/177/255/26) to Plumpton, where it leads just through the NE corner of the region to end at the dock at Maclane.

The beautiful “Albi & Brigitta’s Beach Retreat” by Albi Young and Brigitta Boa, set to the 49Years group, just next to the dock, was protected by a home security system.

On the other side of the road, in the “”CLUB DREAMLAND”  FOR SALE $25,000 (468 PRIMS ) – 1,450 MEMBERS AND GROWING, JOIN OUR FAMILY, EARN LINDENS DANCING, CONTESTS. OPEN TO ALL AVATARS. WEDDING/ENGAGEMENT PROPOSAL BALLS, KISSIN BALLS, BOAT RIDES, ROMANTIC SETTIN, SPOLDER, PICNIC AREA, GAZEBO’S WITH KISS/DANCE BALLS” set to the ***CLUB DREAMLAND*** group and owned by Biancha Bachem, some avatars were still camping / dancing – to 1L$ / 15min. …

The rezz zone before the road block by Abnor Mole is located at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Plumpton/255/202/23), you will land directly at the rezz zone on the dock with (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Maclane/11/193/22). Again a free sailboat vendor placed there for the unprepared traveller – but Traveling Albatros does prefer his familiar Talakin boat 😉

The castle in view from the dock is the “Morgy’s Abode” and set to the Zen Addicts group: “Zen Addicts Alternate Land Rental Group. If you are in this group, you rent land from Zen which is owned by Jason1 Draconia and Emsi Zobovic. The Addicts group, always helping the others get thru the hard times. We offer alot thru the Zen group. Open SIM’s to explore, a place to relax and listen to good music at the groups club, if you love to sail, ride or explore we have open SIM’s decorated and ready for visitors! A sandbox for Creative sorts! Art Gallery, free shop space! With your help”. Me and Simple both did encounter on our travels across the Mainland already some parcels set to this group, always very beautiful detailed sceneries like this one.

Along the canal followed “Yamato’s Japanese Workshop & Tanabe & Mixy Design – Furniture Fish buildings gothic club seating wedding church textures texture shark manta bar fountain door window cannon dj booth globe telephone box piano topiary hedge bar pew” by Hiroshu Tanabe. Too bad the parcel had no gate to the waterway to the incidental traveller, Simple visited this store before and recommends the creations …

The beautiful small building on the water in the foreground is a “*Y’s HOUSE* KOUBOU_full set” by Yacchan Clip. The parcel it sits on, is “Reika’s home”, owned by Reika Darkfold and located just next to the rezz zone and region border at  (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Maclane/249/56/21).

In Comfrey, the waterway crosses the parcel of the “Apolon, Police, car, F1, Helicopter, airship, flight, ship, airplane  – Apolon, auto, flight, f16, f14, f22, f18, f35, Lambo, Jetski, Jet, Motorcycle, pilot, apolon, military, fire, truck, sky, ship, drift, Carrera, GT, Race, robot, police, Airport, Boat, Surf, Haru Motors, アポロン, 自動車, ヘリコプター, 飛行機, 船, バイク” by Irvine Aya, set to the Aya USA group. Expect some air traffic 😉

On seaside followed this impressive club building, the “Run Wolf Run – _/_/_/ BAD COMPANY “Run Wolf Run” _/_/_/ BIKEWOLF Amusement Discovery COMPANY Run Wolf Run” by Bikewolf Kidd, set to the Run Wolf Run group.

On landside in contrast, the “Xx TJ: SMOKY Beach & Base xX” by Tetsuya Juliana. This beautifully decorated parcel was only claimed on Dec 2011 and is set to the xX.:::SMOKY MC:::.Xx group.

From the next rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Comfrey/251/176/21), the waterway crosses the NW corner of Geoduck. I’m sure, you didn’t know that a geoduck is a “species of very large saltwater clam – Geoducks are one of the longest-living organisms in the Animal Kingdom. The oldest recorded specimen was 168 years old …” 😉

A Detail of the scenery on the “I LOVE Mushrooms” parcel by Temo Yokosuka and set to the Second Channel group on seaside there.

These are “8 Palms 2 Prims  no.2 (20m) – no magic , just good sculpties :-)” by Tobias Novi, a detail of the scenery on the other side of the canal. From the rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Shrikhande/129/3/21), the waterway crosses the SE corner of Shrikhande. Me, I also didn’t know that “Sharadchandra Shankar Shrikhande (born on October 19, 1917) is an Indian mathematician with distinguished and well-recognized achievements in combinatorial mathematics” … Sometimes I’d really like to know how these regions got their names 😉

In Shrikhande, a lot of abandoned and empty land and rentals until this beautiful residence.

It is the “Jardin Tremont – My Sweet Home!” by Gloria Tremont.

At the rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Beliandro/3/93/21), the canal crosses to Beliandro. Not many interesting decorations there, a lot of rentals and bare land.

The whole stretch of the waterway through the next region Sun Trap is set as rezz zone. It is located at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sun%20Trap/239/12/21).

In Sun Trap, I passed the “CLUB JAXX & GAMES – Club, Nightclub, beach, games, Specialty shops, Solitaire, Zyngo, gamming, DJ, dancing, Gold Fortune, No Devils, Newbie friendly. Newest club & games in SL”. The parcel was claimed in Dec 2011 and set to the COMET LAND group. If I ever get bored in secondlife, I will visit this place 😉

Simple told me already about this wonderful shop in Schoomere, the next region, he remembered an extended visit on an earlier travel. It is the “*^@RoyalDandie@^* – ファンシーショップでふ^@@^” by Tepo Bellic. The translation by google is not intelligible: “Blocked by fancy shops” ^??^

For sure some of the cutest cuddle things in secondlife 😉 Read more about Royal Dandie at http://royaldandie.slmame.com/

After some bare land and a view blocking cliff wall, I arrived at the rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sorbet/3/197/21). Through the NW corner of Sorbet, the end of the canal gets into view from there 😉

From the Sorbet region, these nice details from the sandy beach along the canal. On seaside was anchored a beautiful “Nautical Dreams Xcited! Sail Boat, CLASSIC WHITE” by 2WAT Michigan. It waited on “Arunia – waterside paradise open access to sea good boat mooring – I will include copy of house as built to fit this plot (only 19 prims” owned by Ahelmil Arun.

On landside, some writings in the sand on the parcel “Rhubarb Sorbet – Where the rhubarbs go to play” set to the Rhubarbs group.

The rezz zone on the Swanbridge Dock, where the waterway ends, is located at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Swanbridge/154/22/22). Here – for now – I suspended again my circumnavigation of Gaeta V. I will continue on Steam Roller  just after the road blocking rocks by Abnor Mole at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Swanbridge/165/31/22). I just hope, you have the stamina to endure with me the 4 stages still needed to close the circle 😉

Until the next step then,

be nice and have fun …

Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Goldbach to Japarid

The 6th step on my trip around this subcontinent – we made almost half of the course along Route 7 now 😉

I retake the road at Goldbach, where I stopped last time, on the junction of the inland crossroad 7A: (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Goldbach/61/115/26).

The parcels in Goldbach are owned by the Alotta Fagina Filataponic group – “Offering affordable secondlife living. No premium membership required. You are authorized basically all the same rights of ownership. Rates: L$1.1 – L$1.25 per prim per week, depends on how many prims and location. Listings via http://www.cedricbrownrentals.blogspot.com/ or the Vendors in Murinata/82/17/40 IM Cedric Brown or Noirran Marx. if no group invite within 4 hours (which you need to use the land) a day will be added to the lease.”

They offer very nice public facilities too, including a giant chess set “Sculpted Chess Set V5.0.3 (Giant) – Fully-functional chess game. Please touch for more information” by Lamorna Proctor. But beware, some parcels are only open to age verified residents.

The whole road parcel in Goldbach has building enabled, with a return of 10′ set, only on the small patch on the border to Slayton is it disabled, just where the rezz zone sign is positioned – someone must have confused something here 😉 There also is no rezz zone in the next region. The road crosses the NW corner of Slayton to Sharman, still without rezz zone on the border there.

The parcels in Slayton I checked, were owned by the Slayton Shores group since 2008 (!): “This group is required to be active if you rent land or a home in Slayton Shores. Parcel renters get abilty to set media, terraform, ban, eject and create a new parcel name”, it was founded by Blaccard Burks.

Here the description of the public land: “Slayton Shores Community Land – Land rentals in a protected enviroment with access to over 50 Linden water sims. A Blaccard Burks Development”. Some parcels have building enabled with 25′ return time set. So, there is really no need for a rezz zone on the road here 😉

The Bridge is made by Abnor Mole.

The parcels in the next region, Sharman, are also owned by a longtime established rental group.

“Easter Islands – A small, quiet Mainland rental community with fun stuff to do: Playground, swimming, tubing, diving, underwater cavern, and our little hangout, Club Hanga Roa. Protected Linden ocean and roadside access. Low rents; bring your own house!” The group is called Easter Islands Friends, Esquievel Easterwood owns this land since 2009.

A small but complete children playground is located on the road, next to the rezz zone on the border to Seyfert: (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Seyfert/201/1/28). The sign is placed in Sharman, but the rezz zone actually does not start before the next region. I think, Mr. Abnor Mole was a bit in a hurry, when he build this part of the route 😉

In Seyfert too a lot of parcels are for rent, but the patrons here didn’t care about creating any scenery. So no wonder the facilities all seem to be vacant. The road runs through the SE corner and then through the NW part of Serpentia. Before the rezz zone on the border at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Seyfert/254/140/29), an advertising in a very old school kind of way 😉

This sculpture for “IXTAR ANIMATIONS SCULPTURE ART – IXTAR ANIMATIONS” by Xavi Ixtar sits on a microparcel and sends a blinding column of glow some 100m up in the sky, impossible to ignore, even from a very far distance away. I remember in terror the time when this was customary …

In Serpentia, a nicely made wall runs on landside along the whole stretch of the road, the parcel, wich is mostly located in Seyfert, seems to be open to the public, but no door or gate to the traveller on the road 😦

The view on seaside into the “Roadside Forest Hideaway – 8192 sqm – 1875 Prims – Mainland No Covenant – Residential Commercial Tropical Sand Lot” more than compensates this 😉

The wonderful scenery is made by Sensational Fride and set to the Wild Hearts! group. The parcel was just claimed december 2011 and is open to the public. After the rezz zone on the border to Romanenko (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Serpentia/51/252/30), I passed a scene only to be found in secondlife. The land on both side of the road, “TALLY-HO”, is set to the “es forbidden fruit group” and owned by Shiho Maruti; access is open to the public.

This patron truly has a heart for Tinies and loves his vehicles 😉

A replica of the “normal”sized building downsized to fit to Tinies is located on the other side of the road. Both parkings proudly present the appropriate vehicles 😉

There is a lot of empty, unused or abanoned land in Romanenko, Ryumin and Polyakov to pass.

Now follows a difficult part of the road. After the rezz zone on the border to Ryumin (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Romanenko/248/220/31), the route runs just a short stretch through this region to enter Polyakov. From there it runs close along the border straight to the East. There is some roadwork going on, to slow the traffic down to prevent unintentional bordercrossings. The detour Mr. Abnor Mole placed here, was almost too narrow for me and my Steam Roller 😉

There is obviously no room for a rezz zone on this region border …

Just next to the road here, located in Ryumin, the “Kyuudou Space”, a japanese archery range is owned by the Clarity FL group. Building is enabled to the public and a return time of 10′ set.

The shrine is a “[KEMONO-System] Hokoramiya (Shinto shrine)(old)” made by Rouki Furse.

I came across an even more complicated situation on the next border.

Here the road runs exactly over the spot, where 4 (!) regions touch. A double detour slows down the unobservant traveller and in case of troubles, there are rezz zones available in 3 of the 4 regions. In Ryumin (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ryumin/248/254/31) and in the adjoining parcels in Polyakov and Japarid – but not in Nemmers!

The road then runs along the northern border of Japarid to the crossing, where the 2nd inland crossroad called Route 7B branches off Route 7. A rezz zone is located directly on the junction (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Japarid/127/244/31).

The rezz zone is also used by “HaruMotors / Haru Motors Gas Route 7 AYA USA – HaruMotors / Haru Motors Gas Station Route 7 AYA USA. The best Automobiles in Second Life. Use RT7 REZ zone to rez your car. Test drive it on the Linden Route 7 in Gaeta Main Land, which is running by Class 5 server. Enjoy your ride”. Owner is Irvine Aya, the parcel is set to the Aya USA group – “Welcome to the Aya USA Group! This group is where Apolon, HaruMotors, Hitomi Racing, Szym Motors, Live Bunny and Nest and the others products owners could exchange information, and where members can be informed of all the news from Aya USA! Try Helicopter, Glider, Jet Ski, Racecars, and more, Have Fun! If you have issue with the any products purchased at Aya USA, please IM Irvine Aya. Thank you for joining to Aya USA. The best place to have fun! BLOG: http://ayausa1.com/blog_en/”.

Here I break again my circumnavigation of Gaeta V, after this long ride on the Steam Roller. I will resume it just on the junction – as soon as possible, I have still a rather long way to go until the circle will be closed 😉

Until then

be nice and have fun …

Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Starborn to Goldbach

The 5th stage of my circumnavigation of Gaeta V…

I resumed the trip, where I left the boat last time, where the Route 7 continues as road from the Dock in Eddison (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Starborn/4/16/22). There was a lot to see on this step of the trip, so this will be a rather long post 😉

A short stretch first, the road is made out of the wooden planking of the “Gaeta dock (road/canal transition)” by Abnor Mole. It forms a very nice beach road wich follows the coastline through Starborn and Phasic Foo. The route runs along the southern region borders, but does not cross it. Both bordering regions Torben Cove and Stellar Drift are Linden owned Ocean Sims.

Just next to the rezz zone I passed on landside “Cailin’s Serenity – Cailin’s beachfront home away from home”, a beautiful residence open to the public.

This beautiful railing, one of the rare mole decorations along Route 7, is made by Abnor Mole.

On the region border from Starborn to Phasic Foo, the road is blocked by a pile of rocks. You find the rezz zone in Phasic Foo after the barrier at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Phasic%20Foo/15/10/23).

On the land side an interesting shop. “KANAE PROJECT Reiko House” owned by the KANAE PROJECT group. There are several tools to create and texture sculpty and mesh prims for sale and for free. “TATARA and ROKURO Pro SOMATO, SHIBORI, NOMI, KUMIKI Serial Box Shop” as it is described in Yuzuru Jewell’s profile, who seems to be the owner / creator of this stuff. Read more on http://kanae.net/secondlife/. Also on display are some objects from different designers made with these tools. Definitively very interesting stuff for builders and creators. Simple needs to make a visit there soon …

After the obstacle, the surface of the road switches to black cracked asphalt of the “Beach road”, still by Abnor Mole.

The prices for some of the parcels for sale along the road now, would not be looking so absurdly excessive, if the objects were included in the sale 😦 These are some very beautiful sceneries indeed …

A very nice lookout / temple with a fountain by Pumpkin Tripsa I found next to the rezz zone on the region border to Orbitalis (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Phasic%20Foo/256/24/23).

While I cammed around, Orbitalis disappeared 😉 Fortunately it was just a short hiccup of some servers and I was able to continue without a restart. Because of the increasing traffic, I changed vehicle there and continued on steam roller again 😉

In Orbitalis I passed the wonderful place of Ktaro Enzo – “— Hitori, kokoroyori… — You are free to explore our gardens, but please respect that this is where we live in Second Life, so give us our privacy and treat us with respect please, otherwise you will be banned.” Find some of his wonderful secondlife pictures on http://the-utsukushii.tumblr.com/ and more on http://www.flickr.com/photos/ktaro/, including pictures from his RL. I do only know him from his pictures and a short contact inworld, but I feel closely related. Perhaps, because I’m a cat man myself 😉

Have a look underwater too, some interesting creatures swimming around there 😉 The Turtle is made by ee Oh.

Just before the rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Orbitalis/249/77/26) near the border to Clemence, have a seat at this Bus Stop by Yacchan Clip and watch how the tree trunk protruding on the road annoys the automated traffic 😉

Hanging over the road / rezz zone, this traffic light by Loco Rau in front of Ktaro’s small shop. Nice try too 😉

On the land side of the road, I passed then “Varriale Designs-Homes- Clemence – All Homes Rezzer for Amazing Varriale Designs Homes! Drop by and take a tour” owned by SkyeRyder Varriale.

On seaside, two nice beach parcels with public access. They have building enabled and a generous return time of 60min. set: “Swede Steamers home at Clemence” by Sede Steamers and “Logan’s Landing – Seaside Retreat.  This parcel is open to any who may wish to enjoy it” by Dustin Cristole.

The road runs through the NW corner of Feschenko. The first rezz zone is to find at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Feschenko/1/172/25).

The parcels along the road here are again a nice starting point for your exploration tours: “* Waypoint Airport and Marina * – Gaeta V-based public airport and marina. Direct access to Linden waters and Route 7. Fly your plane from the airport or set sail from the dock. Play Greedy in the Compass Rose lounge. Waypoint Diner Ship airplane navy nautical airstrip boat garage”. They are owned by the SL-Index Land Rental 11 group, most have building enabled and 30 min return time set.

Next I drove past the cozy “*Blue Moon Burlesque Cabaret Theatre – Weekly shows – Sorta hirin – Blue Moon Theatre! Chill by the bar, or visit the owl quarters and lick pirate owls to the best sounds in jazz & blues music. We present Burlesque Dancing and Shows, Drama Productions, Cabarets, Live Music, odd DJ’s, balls, vintage radio shows and stuff” owned by Naiki Muliaina and set to the BlueMoon Group. Read more about this place at http://www.bluemoons.tk/.

On the other side of the road, there were a lot of fishing contests going on at “Hugh Enderfield’s Realm – Under Reconstruction! – Medieval-themed hangout for tiny empire players in the line of Hugh Enderfield. Recruitment point for the Kingdom of Laurelin; recruiting/bribing for other kingdoms prohibited! Gruppe für deutsche spieler in Tiny Empire.” The place is owned by Tiffany’s Castle group.

At the rezz zone (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Feschenko/142/255/24) the road crosses the region border, to run through the SE corner of Takeuti.

Here I spent some time looking around in the wonderful detailed scenery of “Takeuti Town 1cyome” by Poponi Wiefel. The parcel is set to the Takeuti Town 1 chome group. The descriptions are in japanese, but you can get a first impression of her stuff and personality at http://ponitee.blogspot.com/. I have to tell Simple about it, this place is worth a panorama shoot 😉

After the rezz zone at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Takeuti/254/108/24), the road runs through the NW corner of Banneker. But this impressive tower located there is to see from rather a distance 😉

The parcel is called “Our Dream by the Sea & Stars….” and set to the ~2 Peas In A Pod~ group. The Tower seems to be created / owned by Allellia Sweetwater and Allellia Zebberman.

To admire it in all its glory, I had to rise the draw distance so high, my poor laptop cought an acute fear of heights and crashed 😉 But it was definitively worth it …

This next parcel on both side of the road is called “Capicua” and set to the Capicua group. Mr. Pirocas is the founder and seems to be owner and creator of this residence. A very young account, created feb 2011, but what a tasteful composition! Too bad, access is restricted to the group 😦

At the rezz zone on the region border at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Banneker/61/245/26), I already arrived at Goldbach. Here the inland cross route called Route 7A joins with the coastal road. The other junction I passed here, on the end of the first step of this trip.

On both side of the road are several parcels located, owned by the Alotta Fagina Filataponic group. Most are created by Zoidyn Kytori and are open to the public.

On the street corner, part of the premises is the “Z&A Coffeehouse & Art Studio – Welcome to Z&A, a warm and friendly place to hang out and talk for hours, dance, play a game of chess on the deck and enjoy original artwork created in SL and RL”. This parcel even has building enabled …

On the parcel “Jack and Jill – Jack and Jill… Party of Two…”, just next to the junction, there also waits a free “Psyclefox Bike Rezzer v1.1” owned by Cedric Brown to help the unprepared traveller get ready for the road 😉

The road junction at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Goldbach/61/115/26) in itself is a rezz zone. So much support to the traveller, I’m positively overwhelmed 😉

So this is the right place to break again my circumnavigation of Gaeta V, after this long but rewarding ride. I will resume it just here – as soon as possible 😉

Until then

be nice and have fun …

Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Einer to Eddison

Already the 4th step on my trip around Gaeta V.

I left at the rezz Zone in Einer, where the road rises out of the sea. You find a “Free Diving Gear!_1.0_Sea of Fables_ABN_OB_vendor” by Abnor Mole here, if you rather like to explore the underwater scenery first. The rezz Zone is to find at (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Einer/254/168/23)

I do not want to damage the pavement of the “Beach road cobble” by Abnor Mole, so I travel this part on horseback 😉

Ominor is part of the Lovers Cove, I already had a look on this place on the end of the last post.

“LOVERS COVE – Dance Romance – Love Marriage Salsa Ballroom Jazz” – “VALENTINE SIM – PERFECT FOR DANCING & ROMANCING – ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN SL. DANCE at TEMPLE, BOOGIE at BEACH, KISS at COVE, MELLOW at MIDNIGHT AND GET HITCHED at HEAVEN. WEDDING GAZEBO FOUNTAIN SANCTUARY TWILIGHT GOTH AUSTRALIA AUSSIE UK US”. It is owned by <<~ The Silhillians ~>> group and build by Cirrus McKinney. As I visited, the parcels had building enabled with a return time of 5min.

The road leads a short way through Arimto to Yuliman. You have 3 regions to choose to rez your vehicle:

(http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ominor/228/4/32), (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Arimto/249/246/33) or (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Yuliman/6/239/34)  😉

Along the sea on both side of the road through Arimto, Yuliman, Vuissant and neighboring regions is a large Beach Resort located with a lot of different places to rent. The descriptions of the parcels are very similar: “Yuliman Beach and Resort” – “which offers luxury living (houses, appartment, condos, home) on an tropical ocean front location, surrounded by Linden Ocean to sail in, Arimto, Vuissant and Hanaji as partner beach and resorts. Come live with us.” Access to some parcels is restricted to residents with age verification …

I do not like these oversized Beach resorts in RL and I’m not interested in wasting my time in a secondlife one, so I crossed these regions without a closer look 😉

Much more interested me this parcel in Loom. I found the portal just after the border to Yuliman. The land is described as “Progeny Role Play System” – “The Home of the Demonic Saint” and set to the “Ravensloft Real Estate” group. The building seems to be made by Super Dexing. Access too was restricted to Residents with age verification …

Because of the heavy traffic, I had a crash on the next region border. The rezz zones really are perfectly placed on this continent: (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Yuliman/254/74/34)  😉

In Hanaji at last I left the neighborhood of the beach resort and found on the seaside just before the end of the cobbled road this nice scene.

The parcel is named “Tierra Flores”, owned by Senamun Llewellyn and set to a group called Ipet-Isut. From the group profile: “Ipet-Isut: The Great Temple of Amun, it’s name means “Most Sacred of Places”. Today it’s known as Karnak Temple and located in Luxor (formerly known as W’aset or Thebes), Egypt. – FREE Group for Ancient Egypt lovers, and especially those interested in this temple or the gods-goddess of the so called Theban Triad: Amun(-Ra), Mut and Khonsu.” It has building enabled and is set to a 5min. return time.

The usual road/canal transition in Hanaji: (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Hanaji/86/13/22) is the rezz zone on the end of the road, (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bit%20Bat%20Bot/94/247/22) the rezz zone on the dock incl. a free sailboat vendor by Abnor Mole. So back in my Talakin Small Boat again 😉

A nice beach scenery on the start of the waterway. “Isla 8” is owned by Hami Hammerer and set to the Freebird Chicks Group. Too bad access is restricted to the group.

A little further down the canal in Bit Bat Bot (?^?) I found the home of the AZ Emporium by Aarcher Zenovka. “AZ Emporium – Village of Quilla, High Quality : Attention to Detail : Low Prims. Come see the eclectic mix of designs which include : House boats, luxurious furniture, trapeze swings, animated books, themed skyboxes, gypsy wagons, kayaks, camping equipment, fireplaces….and much more”.

On the landside is located the “AZ Camping Central : Tents : Backpacks : Sleeping Bags – Unique wearable items that can be used almost anywhere. Pitch a tent in some of the most beautiful sims or sit by a campfire with friends. Kayaks, sleeping bags, tents, campfires, backpacks, fishing set.” Very naturalistic and imaginative creations, I have to tell my main about it 😉

You can start your visit from the next rezz zone. The whole stretch of the waterway through the SW corner of Polimoc has building enabled: (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Polimoc/5/24/21).

Next I passed 2 nice clubs right on the canal.

First on the landside the “Darken Souls Club & Beach – Contests, Events, & much more! KICKIN’ MUSIC & GREAT PEOPLE! A MUST SEE! Contact Trusty Jewell or Toohott Sweetwater if you have any questions” owned Trusty Jewell (since Dec 2008!).

The rezz zone on the border is very short: (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Frianticon/249/113/21). It is not continued into Eddison.

Here, on the seaside, i passed “Knuckleheads on the Beach – Determined to be the least annoying club in SL! Live music on Saturdays nights only, and we only have the best! 5 pm Bluemonk Rau, 6 pm Framulox Ezvalt, 7 pm Spike Luckstone. srv4u Conacher plays here when he’s not on the road! Come join us!”. The club is owned by Galilla Sinatra and set to the KnuckleHeads on the Beach group: “Knuckleheads on the Beach is a laid back club with something for everyone. Trivia, live music, beach, dancing, boating, blues, rock, oldies… and generally whatever we feel like doing at the time. Live shows every Sat! 6 pm – Framulox Ezvalt 7 pm – Spike Luckstone And Da Bluez Preacher at whenever he can!”

I need to plan a night out soon and check these places out 😉

On the seaside of the waterway, I have now a free view on the open waters of Torben, a protected Ocean Sim.

On the parcel of “Nick and Moon’s Beachfront Heaven” with public access, I found this beautiful “Free Swimming dolphin 1.03a Trans” made by Avi Savira from Tropical Creations! “You can ride, feed & command them to do tricks. Get a baby one too”.

I spend some time just watching him doing tricks and randomly swimming around. Too bad there is definitively not enough room in the pond in Lythria for a dolphin 😉 The dolphin and the parcel are owned by Flyrnick Sands.

In Starborn, the Route 7 changes from waterway to road again in the familiar way.

On the rezz zone on the Starborn dock, (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Eddison/248/19/22), again with a free sailboat vendor by Abnor Mole, I break my circumnavigation of Gaeta V. I will resume soon, on horseback, as the surface of the road is made out of the wooden dock planking, for sure no road for a Steam Roller 😉

Until then

be nice and have fun …

Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Rebin to Einer

I continue my trip around Gaeta V where I left, at the rezz Zone in Rebin, where the road starts again after the long waterway http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rebin/235/169/22

No Art to find in the building to the right. It was completely empty 😦

Along the road in Rebin are a lot of parcels for sale or rent. The familiar sequence of rezz Zones on the region borders is continued on the border to Inspire http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspire/144/254/24.

This is a nice region to spend some time: On the landside shopping at “StarChild Designs” by Tatiana Starsider “Gorgeous Designs-vintage,costume,weddings & formal wear. $1 Madness Sale-cheap costumes, shoes, skins & clothing. Flapper, gangster, 1920s, 1950s pin up girl, WWII Flying Ace, gothic & bridal. Free gifts! Free clothing! 20s,30s,40s,50s,60”,

On the ocean coast relaxing at the public beach from “Moon Healing Als” – “Musical Instruments Shop -Wear Type Drums, Rez Type Drums, Conga, Crystal drum stick”. Land and objects are mostly owned by Satonao Jewell from the ~ BELLE ROSE MINT ~ Group.

On the road the next rezz Zone http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lumoli/40/253/26.

The route just crosses the northwest corner of Lumoli. Again some parcels for rent along the road.

The next rezz Zone (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lumoli/3/139/27) came in handy. I had a difficult crossing to Xeriacle. Perhaps it was because of the huge construction of megaprims and sculpty rocks on the border to the parcels of “A Dreamscape Honeymoon Production”. But I do not complain! These places are really worth a look (owned by “Tranquil Peace Group” – “Honeymoon & Fantasy Escapes, Beach rentals, lovely regions, beautiful landscaping, friendly management!”).

There was “The Lodge, Soraya’s Winter Enchantment” – “The Lodge, a spacious, well appointed luxury cabin set in its own private grounds is decorated for the Holiday Season. Roaring fires and warm furnishings shelter you from the wintery setting outside.” with “Soraya’s Winter Enchantment Public Snow Playground (Dreamscape)” – “Enjoy our small Winter Village and its holiday fun. Ski Lift & Runs, Ice Skating, Pictures with Santa, Snowman Building and Christmas rentals winter rentals log cabin honeymoon lodge Dreamscape”.

And the “Lovers Lagoon ~ A Dreamscape Honeymoon Production on the sea”. These wonderful athmospheric places seem to be created by Mikhail Obscure and Sophia Vandeverre.

I did just cam around from the rezz Zone in Gumtree http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Gumtree/215/255/29.

Gumtree and the neighboring region Ponchau are almost bare. They are owned by “Pulseburst Design” owned by PulseBurst Flow. Bu the little decoration just intensifies the beauty of the ocean view.

Then as surprise on the border to Squall this amazing scene 😉 Mr. PulseBurst Flow (Ants are made by Qarl Fizz) has some style 😉

The next region Squall is owned by the Management. Here on the rezz Zone of the Squall Public Beach http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Squall/171/253/25 I get off the Steam Roller and continue along the sand beach on foot. On the rezz Zone you find a “Free Diving Gear!_1.0_Sea of Fables_ABN_OB_vendor” by Abnor Mole. You can start exploring the seaworld from here or from the other end of this long public beach.

The first part, “Squall Beach and Route 7” – “Protected Land” is owned by the Linden Departement of Public Works and has building enabled with a 5min. return time set!

On the next parcel, a big surprise: I found the “Camp Site” – “Let those follow me who can!” owned by the famous and very mysterious Magellan Linden!

In a tent build out of the wreckage of a plain crash, I found his Bear waiting, but unfortunately no further sign of a recent visit of the hero and paragon to all second life explorers 😉

Behind the beach is Linden’s HelFell InfoHub located. The wonderful mediterranean buildings in roman style are made by Mr. Glamorous Mole. I didn’t visit (yet).

The parcel on the beach is named “Squall Beach and Route 7” again and has building enabled http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Squall/224/69/22. I had a shallow lagoon to cross and reached on Einer Beach the next region, Einer. The rezz Zone ends on the border.

But behind the beach you find the “LOVERS COVE” – “Dance Romance – Love Marriage Salsa Ballroom Jazz – VALENTINE SIM – PERFECT FOR DANCING & ROMANCING – ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN SL. DANCE at TEMPLE, BOOGIE at BEACH, KISS at COVE, MELLOW at MIDNIGHT AND GET HITCHED at HEAVEN. WEDDING GAZEBO FOUNTAIN SANCTUARY TWILIGHT GOTH AUSTRALIA AUSSIE UK US” owned by <<~The Silhillians ~>> Group. There building is enabled with a return time of 5 min. Just next to the beach you find some of the marvelous Elven Drums by Robbie Dingo. The Cove is owned and created by Cirrus McKinney.

Einer Beach ends with the paved road (“Beach road cobble” by Abnor Mole) rising from the bottom of the ocean and with a rezz Zone http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Einer/233/191/21. Here Mr. Abnor Mole offers another “Free Diving Gear!_1.0_Sea of Fables_ABN_OB_vendor” to explore the sea ground. I just had a short swim and I’m already convinced to return sometime soon to discover some wonderful mole creations 😉

But for now I have to break my circumnavigation of Gaeta V. I will resume it here another day soon – on the Steam Roller again 😉

until then

be nice and have fun …

Around Gaeta V (along Route 7) from Puccetta to Rebin

Let’s continue the trip along the coast of Gaeta V, where I left last time. The nearest rezz Zone is just around the corner on the inland route 7A: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Puccetta/167/4/32

On the landside of the road there lies the Emporium of the House of Byzanthine, on the seaside the wide Beach of Puccetta, both owned by Kirk Roelofs.

The Shop has “All kind of sounds sound and songs for builders, ambient loops song classical music, belly dances, ballet and music boxes, animals, birds, medieval, world music, ethno, christmas, wedding, MM board, full perm, freebies, medieval gregorian chant, oriental” and “Creative handmade textures and sounds. Full perm textures. 3D Building textures. Art Textures, Furniture textures, stone, rock, brick, wall plaster, Middle Eastern Textures, tibetan textures, oriental interior and exterior design, doors, windows, marble, carpet” for sale. Some very interesting stuff, I have to tell Simple about it 😉

The beach includes almost half of the region. It is called “La spiaggia di Puccetta” and open to the public. A wonderful place to enjoy the ocean view.

On the border to Sunspiral I had to get off the Steam Roller and switch to the Talakin Boat again. There is a free Sailboat Vendor by Abnor Mole placed on the dock for the unprepared traveler 😉

Here the SLURL’s to the rezz Zone:

Roadside is  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Puccetta/5/169/24,

Dockside is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sunspiral/248/173/22.

I follow the canal to the west. Still are rezz Zones placed on the region borders. The first one is on http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sunspiral/5/165/21.

In the next region, in Zeord, on the border to the sea region of Ruil, the sailing community finds on the “Barefoot Surf Side” a public dock: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Zeord/194/253/22. Return time is set to 30 min. But take care, this is no rezz Zone! So if you forget your time shopping from Barefoot Apparel, your boat will be returned and you have to start on the Zeord rezz Zone: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Zeord/6/125/21

On the landside of the canal stretches the interesting “Barefoot Homes Second Display Site for pre-fab homes”. The Barefoot Designs wares are created by Jeremey Ryan.

This beautiful “(hh) Rowboat ‘Sunday Chiller'” made by Harry Quijote (Harry of Harry’s Houses) and owned by Areyn Laurasia waits on the canal for it’s boater, the dog has already boarded and takes his siesta in the meantime 😉

Another rezz Zone on the border: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kinstall%20Hill/6/63/21

Some very beautiful residencies are situated along the waterway. Here in Kinstall Hill, the next region, on the landside the “Mermaid Cove !” owned by “Guevara Ltd –  provides rental property and other services” and build by Fiddlejenny Rain. The House is from Fatima Ur, a “PINK Antique Artistry’s Victorian dream home”. You don’t have to buy anything to enjoy a visit to her “ANTIQUE ARTISTRY Victorian Houses, prefabs and garden center” …

On the seaside in Kinstall Hill the “Ridges Gaffe” owned by Ridge Maximus and guarded by two of the amazing predators by Zooby. The property is open to the public and has even building enabled. From his Picks: “its the bollocks – A nice place to relax and unwind, shame i havnt the same in rl”. It is an Innovatio House by Jacob Brenner from IMEGICA ARCHITECTURE & DECOR.

The route crosses the southeast corner of Cliansa Beach. This whole sea region is Protected Land and owned by Governor Linden. Building not enabled of course, but a return time of 10 min. allows you to leave your boat if needed 😉

You find the nearest rezz Zones in Ghambt on http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ghambt/100/254/21 and http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ghambt/5/199/21. The second one is very small, as it is not continued into the next region Densi Falls.

The route crosses the northwest corner of Ghambt and on the small parcel between canal and the sim border, I found the source of the beauty of this part of Route 7 😉

It’s because many of the residents and owners along the canal did use the palms and decorations from Joan Monstre of “joan – BUILDINGS & LANDSCAPING ” in http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ghambt/33/242/22. This gives this part of the route a special coherent look. It is one consistent landscape, something you do not find in many places on the Mainland 😉

Even the private places like the wonderful “A piece of Paradise – ownd by the 3-AMIGOS-3. Family only!!!” do blend in.

After Densi Falls, the canal crosses the northwest corner of Derminis to end in Rebin. Here a look back ..

There is no rezz Zone in the Densi Falls region nor in Deminis. Nearest one is on the Rebin Dock http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rebin/244/180/22 (including a Free Sailboat Vendor by Mr. Abnor Mole, like on all these transfer points).

With some regret, I leave my Talakin Boat here to dry in my inventory and will resume my circumnavigation of Gaeta V another day soon – on the Steam Roller again 😉

until then

be nice and have fun …
