Byrd Island

Welcome to Byrd Island. Take a step back in time to explore this once inhabited island. The Light house keeper and his family left the island never to return. Could it have been the birds, or something else? Byrd Island is now open for tours.”

This is the landmark description of Byrd Island, which I came across following Inara Pey’s blog and her post “Byrd Island in Second Life“. Byrd Island is another creation of Sera Bellic, who owns LICK sim design, and she demonstrates her talent again. I had visited her “Adirondacks in Second Life” as well as her “LICK – Heaven or Hell” before in 2016.

August 20th: A visit to Byrd Island (3)

When I arrived at Byrd Island it was foggy (using the windlight settings of the sim) and the atmosphere accordingly mystic. A swarm of seagulls welcomed me as well as some pelicans. As expected there’re many birds and even when you don’t see them by accident their sound is everywhere. I do like in particular the big wooden landing pier as it reminds me of my home RL. There’s one big difference to reality – in Second Life the pier isn’t covered with bird droppings.
At the pier, where you arrive is a little beach and the elevator to the high plateau of Byrd Island. You can use a rope ladder instead for getting there. I roamed around the Island and peeked into the buildings. The sim is beautiful, offers many views and places to sit and cuddle and is for sure worth a visit just to explore or to get some ideas for own sim designs.

As I had to stop my visit unexpectingly I returned later the same day to Byrd Island. The fog was gone and the atmosphere was different. I could smell summer and I tried out some of the places to chill or to hang around and to listen to the sounds of the birds. What a difference the sun can make!
