Simploring 2019 (68) Devin’s Eye

For my 2nd simploring tour on Sunday, June 2nd, I picked Devin’s Eye from scoop.it SL Destinations. Devin’s Eye is a homestead, rated general, owned by Roy Mildor and his partner Ally Mildor (Ally Daysleeper). It consists of three parts:
The ground level offers a nice island with a bit of everything, a long pier, a nice beach, spots to sit and watch, nature, horses and other animals, a garage, a zip line and a bungee tower.
On a seperate platform in the skies above is Roy Mildor’s store “Top Striker“, a shop for tattoos.
And on another platform in the skies is another landscape, a sand desert with an oasis in it’s center.

Devin’s Eye – overview and first impressions

The ground level is a great spot for taking pictures and to retreat and enjoy the peaceful setting. There’s not a real theme for this island. I couldn’t tell if it is in Europe or America, but it is not in the Caribbean nor is it in the Mediterranean. I liked in particular the bungee tower as I didn’t jump before in Second Life (nor in RL). That was fun.

It made me smile seeing a rock formation at a canyon that looked like a springboard – and there was a sign with a skull “Danger”. I found several spots that were inviting to sit down and for taking pictures. I think my pictures give an impression of the ground level of Devin’s Eye.

The 2nd landscape can be reached by using on of the teleport boards that are at Devin’s Eye. One is at the beach. This 2nd landscape is really different and also comes with an extra. You can ride a beach buggy and as it is a desert, that makes fun. At the oasis you can watch animals, camels, hippos, giraffes, zebras, tigers, birds and elephants.

There’s a tower that you can climb up to get a nice view. You can also use a hot air balloon for getting a bird’s eye view. There’s a romantic rope bridge between 2 huts. The bridge leads the oasis, the huts offer the opportunity to sit and enjoy the view. It somehow looks a bit misplaced. But when you use it just as a backdrop for a picture, then it is nice with the elephants drinking and playing with the water just close by.

I had fun visiting Devin’s Eye. Thank you Roy and Ally for providing your homeplace to the public. I always appreciate when shop owners combine their business with a nice environment for all to enjoy.
