Simploring 2017 (98) Winterly and Christmassy Cherishville

I came across Cherishville reading Inara Pey’s blog entry “Winter at Cherishville in Second Life“. Her description and in particular her pictures of Cherishville caught my attention immediately. Cherishville is owned and designed by Lam Erin, and it’s a gem of winterly Second Life. According to the landmark description, Cherishville will be open for a few weeks only. I visited Cherisville on Sunday December 3rd, and I hope that it remains open a few weeks more.

Cherishville – overview

I arrived at the center of Cherisville which is really pitoresque. It is a row of shops and cafes lined up along the main street and the railroad. Every shop is furnished and decorated for the season. It is great fund to explore them and to have a look at the details. The railroad station is at the end of the shop row and you might have just missed all trains. The board with the departure and arrivals is really funny!

Cherishville – The shop row and the station

Across the railroad is a large sea promenade, also decorated for the season, the sea is frozen now according to the season. Between the “Cafe Expresso” and the “Carnaby Street” is a passage with steps that leads you to an elevated area above the shop row. The stairs end at historic subway entrances. You can enter the subway entrance and get to a subway station (New York City) that is also decorated for the season. Not far away is a large villa. The gate to the plot was locked when I visited, hence I just camed in into the villa to see the inside. The (three) rooms are furnished, one is obviously also used as a photo studio, the smaller room in the center is decorated for Christmas, and the third room has a bit of everything (among other furniture a bathtube).

Cherishville – the villa

After visiting the villa I walked in the other direction and came to the Christmas tree shop and to a winterly gazebo with an event area. The nature on this side of Cherishville is lovely and peaceful and at the gazebo you can take a rest and just enjoy the atmosphere.

Cherishville – other impressions

A part of Cherishville is not accessible for the public. I assume it’s where Lan Erin has his home. This part is seperated with a line of hills. If you get too close, you’ll get a fair warning with enough time to turn and walk back.

Cherishville is really beautiful and a perfect place to relax, and to enjoy winter and the Christmas season. Thank you Lam Erin, that you share it with the public. I enjoyed my visit very much.
