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 …
