Saturday afternoon simploring tour

Saturday afternoon, July 2nd, I spent some time of simploring and I visited 3 places, all of which were quite different. I first visited Legacy Ridge. You find a full and perfect description in Inara’s blog: “A walk through Legacy Ridge in Second Life“.

Legacy Ridge is just a little town somewhere at a coast. It has all you would find typically in such a town: Diner, Motel, park, Car dealer, restaurants, playground, shops … and spreaded among the hills nice homes for the residents. You land in a house, something like a visitor center, where you can join a group and grab a landmark and get some infos about Legacy Ridge.

I explored on foot first the little town itself, then I walked along the shoreline and then I took the big tour through the hills. From the town I noticed a modern house up in the hills with a big window from where you must have a great view. And during my walk in the hills I could take a closer look. A really beautiful house, something I’d love to have in RL. I think that is the secret of Legacy Ridge. It all looks so natural, so familiar, that you could think about moving into one of these nice houses – well I’d take the mordern house with the view over the bay.

July 2nd: Simploring It All Starts With A Smile (IASWAS) (1)

My next stop was “It All Starts With A Smile” – what a lovely name for a sim. And it is really fitting. It All Starts With A Smile (IASWAS) is a picturesque sim by Kaelyn Alecto and Maxx (Maxxster). It is a group of tropical islands with many places to sit and cuddle, to have a drink, to relax and I could almost feel the sun. At least I had a feeling of vacation and laziness. I explored, I wandered around, I sat down here and there and I took some nice pictures. IASWAS is just lovely for a visit with your love or just for getting away for an hour without a long flight.

My Saturday simploring tour ended at MetaLES, an art sim. Inara has a full description in her blog. Ths sim is turning 7 years, hence her blog text is titeled “MetaLES at seven in Second Life“.

I learned that the sim is operated by Ux Hax and Romy Nayar. For the 7th year anniversary it exhibits art work, virtual art form the last 7 years which was captured in pictures by Anita Witt. If I were a regular visitor of the many art sims in SL, I would recognize some of the art exhibited – well but I’m not. I just visit art installation or sims that were created by artists sometimes. But I did recognize some of the artist names mentioned in Inara’s post like Cica Ghost and Bryn Oh. At MetaLES the art is presented quite exceptional. Frames with the pictures hang in the sky, big objects and rocks holding the according hooks. The objects are huge, the pictures are huge. This way my avatar looks quite short and negligible within the art installation, that is for sure an intended effect.

For those interested in art or those who just want to see something different, virtual and temporary art, I do recommend a visit. I enjoyed my visit and the pictures I took will remember me of the particular way the art was presented here.
