Simploring 2019 (117) Autumn @ Dream Bay

For my simploring tour on Sunday, October 27th, I picked Dream Bay from scoop.it SL Destinations. Dream Bay is moderate homestead owned by Mᴏʀɢᴀɴ Fɪʀᴇʜᴀᴡᴋ (mmorganwhitfield). It is the home of the Care and Hope Center, the mainstore of a brand for shoes “Heels” and it is the private home of Morgan, she calls it Huckleberry Island.

The sim was landscaped and design by Ayla (aylaj). It is, at least right now, a lovely Autumn installation and pure fun to visit and enjoy!

Dream Bay – overview

The landing is right next to a zip line. I was welcomed by a Halloween Ghost Clown, not scary but fitting to the season. I looked around and was overwhelmed by the colours of Autumn immediately. Dream Bay is designed professionally – and the environment is just fitting. I tried the zip line and thus reached the smaller of the two islands of which Dream Bay consists. The end of the zip line is in a giant spider net, it’s better you don’t suff of arachnophobia.

The small island, I named it “Seasonal Halloween Island” has all what you expect: a graveyard, spiders, skeletons, black cats, ruins, dead bodies. There’s a tree house which is loveld furnished and decorated inside, yet I didn’t find the proper way to enter it. The tree looks like the feet of a dinosaur or a big raven.

I returned to the main island and began exploring it. I walked through the forest, I came across quite some nice spots to sit and watch and I just enjoyed. Then I reached the the Care and Hope Center.
Morgan is a supporter of an initiative against domestic violence. Since 2014, the Care and Hope Center is a not-for-profit information hub to educate and instill awareness on the horrors of domestic violence. Free and confidential class discussion groups are offered every other month. Please stop by the Center to see when our next class session will begin.  Safe, free, friendly and always open to the public. A lot of information including a hotline for getting advice and help can be obtained in the center.

Morgan is a professional model in Second Life and she is the owner of Heels, a small and humble shoe store. The mainstore of Heels is located at Dream Bay, right next to the Care and Hope Center. All proceeds go towards the maintenance and operation of the Care and Hope Center of SL. Everything Morgan does in Second Life, whether modeling and/or Heels, is for the sole purpose of bringing attention to the Care and Hope Center and Domestic Violence Awareness.

Next to the Care and Hope Center is a trap door. You can use it to teleport to the zip line and at the zip line is a trap door to return to the Care and Hope Center. I continued my simploring tour and walked along the river, crossed it twice using a covered brigde. Did I mention how much I love covered bridges as they remind me of New England in the US? Anyway, I discovered more nice places to rest, I sat in a gazebo, and I encountered another ghost who was guarding a Halloween decoration right next to the trail and I had a short break at a modern boat house.

Dream Bay offers a lot for those who enjoy taking pictures or those who just want to escape from their RL for a while and enjoy the peace. It is designed professionally but with a lot of love for the detail as well.

Thank you Morgan for providing your sim to the public and for your engagement against domestic violence. It is an important matter and I truely appreciate your work! I hope that the Care and Hope Center gets the attention it deserves. And many thanks to Ayla (aylaj), you did a great job landscaping and designing Dream Bay and created a sim that fits to its name.
I did enjoy my visit a lot.
