Angel Falls

It’s been well over three years that we moved to our own homesim “Mount Everest”. And the islands that we share with Sarah and with Tyra&Virgo changed during these years. We’re changing and improving slowly but steadily. The latest main changes were adding trees and flowers and our new main house. Last weekend we added something else: a waterfall close to the Shangri-La. The waterfall includes some very nice poses for a single avatar taking a shower or a bath and some poses for cuddling or taking a bath together. We added some grass, rocks and plants around it and connected the falls with the sea. Fae added a huge mushroom to sit on, which adds a tiny bit of the land of fairies to our islands. Now we needed a name for it. Of course that’s the title of this post. You should have seen Angelique directing Jenny when she placed the new falls. She stomped with her feet here and there to indicate where she wanted it moved. That was funny. Angelique truely seems to love the new addition to our home. Thus Jenny proposed “Angel Falls” and she also looked it up in Wikipedia:
“Angel Falls (Spanish: Salto Ángel; Pemon language: Kerepakupai Vená, meaning “waterfall of the deepest place”, or Parakupá Vená, meaning “the fall from the highest point”) is a waterfall in Venezuela. It is the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall, with a height of 979 m (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyantepui mountain in the Canaima National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Canaima), a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolívar State.”

So our island is not only named after the highest mountain on earth but also has the highest waterfall. That fits! Oh, there’s already someone taking a shower. Who might it be? Let’s take a closer look!

Last weekend the home and garden expo in Second Life opened it’s doors and Jenny and I had a quick walk around at a small part of the fair. We were attracted by some mesh stairs, low prim and looking quite real. So we went to the store of the maker to get them and got not only the stairs but also some paths textures. And back home we began improving the paths through our island. They look a lot better than those before, at least in our opinion. With the paths and stairs and Angel Falls it was about time to revise the map of Mount Everst. Here it is:

Now we’re ready for the upcoming weekend. Let’s start it with a nice party Friday night at 9 PM (GMT).

We hope to see you there inworld!
Love from Diomita and Jenny

    How does one get into this? Software, online, I don’t know. I think it would be enjoyable.

      If you’re inworld just left click on the fall will bring up a menu with single and couple poses. There’s no poseball, just right click and choose sit.

        Thanks.
        I still have the problem of not knowing anything about the “game”. I have never been on any site with the stuff you show. Let’s say I am new to the idea and am intrigued by it. I just don’t know where on the computer to go.
