This week I found time to do a bit of simploring again. I went to Saint Pete City. Of course I was following a recommendation by Inara Pey again. There’s a quite detailled description of Saint Pete City in her “Living in a Modemworld” blog. Her report is titeled “The streets of Saint Pete’s in Second Life“. Inara describes Saint Pete City -as the name suggests, as an urban environment with a strong Dutch influence in terms of architecture and feel. Well, if you count the bicycles, you must feel like being in the Netherlands. But the architecture isn’t Dutch in my humble opinion, although I can’t really localize it either.
The creator Neva Xenga (neva.crystall) wrote about Saint Pete City “When u need the wonders, noises and sweet delights of a magical city burried in stories and treasures waiting to be found, open the gates of St. Pete, i put my heart into it..”
What really adds to the “Saint Pete City feeling” is the sound, a mixture of the sound of the sea rushing, the cries of seagulls and mayn people talking. I roamed a bit around and noticed that whatever street you take, it leads you back to the main street, but you don’t get the feeling that the city ends. The courts and streets are so nicely planned that it feels a lot larger than it is. There are a some active shops and art galleries and some nice places to sit down and relax. Of course I took a lot of pictures and will only publish a few of them here.
During my visit I got a call from Nina, who needed shortly my help and I went to the beach to teleport her in as it is a moderate sim. But it was too tempting not to take another shot.
Finally before I ended my visit, I looked up the creator’s profile and found that she is also the creator of Baby’s Ear, a sim that I visited in July
(https://themaurers.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/babys-ear/). So I went there to finish my simploring.
“And whenever you may need the music within the sea, the light from an old lighthouse, the joy of picking up apples in the back yard of a home, far from home, welcome to Baby’s Ear.. a place to get lost in.” (Quote taken from Neva’s Profile pick)
Thank you Neva for these two lovely sims. I enjoyed my visit and it won’t be my last!
