Simploring 2019 (47) Green Acres

Wednesday, April 3rd, I visited Green Arces, an adult homestead owned and created by Alsatian Kidd. I came acress Green Acres following Inara Pey’s blog and reading her post “A trip to Green Acres in Second Life“.

The landmark profile contains a perfect description: “Green Acres provides the three R’s. Rustic. Rural. Retreat. This adult-themed sim has open vistas providing opportunities for photography, horseback riding, and hanging out. Explore the farm with livestock, crops and a farmers market.”

Green Acres – orientation map / around the landing point

The landing point is in the East of the island just close to 2 houses, that are nested into a steep rock and supported by trees. I climbed up and enjoyed the view from up there to get a first impression about Green Acres. I was greeted by a visitor bot: “Welcome to the Green Acres sim. Feel free to explore and enjoy the many amenities throughout Green Acres. We only ask you to respect the privacy of the ranch house.
In the orientation map I marked the private ranch house.

From the tree houses I walked along the river and enjoyed the many lovely views. Green Acres is a paradise for photographers and I took quite some pictures. The island radiates a peaceful atmosphere. You can see a lot of animals along the way like deers, raccoons, foxes, ducks, cows and many birds. I walked along the Northern shore up to the lighthouse and the beach, where I sat down for another rest.

Close to the lighthouse is the small fishing harbour. Here I met Bruce, the poor dead shark, again, which I saw already on other sims. The harbour with the lighthouse in it’s background is very picturesque.

Walking over the bridge close to the harbour I got to the farmers market with local food and reached the ranch. Please keep in mind that the ranch house itself is private. I had fun exploring the farm, looking at the scarecrow admist a field of sunflowers, exploring the (public) ranch buildings and I went into one building, that is obviously used as a photostudio and event area. It`s close to the ranch house, but as far as I gathered it is not private. Close to the ranch is a nice pond with some waterfalls and a cajak that offers nice opportunites for taking pictures.

From there I walked back to the landing point. On my way back I noticed a bear which was fishing in the river. You an watch the bear eating the fish. I also had a look at the vineyard close to the ranch house from where you have a nice look to the harbour.

I like the description of Green Arces providing the three R’s: Rustic, Rural, Retreat. It is a very peaceful setting, there’s a lot to discover and to observe, you can take pictures, you can simply enjoy the environment, you can retreat – in one word: I enjoyed my visit.
Thank you, Alsatian for sharing your world with the public!
