Simploring 2020 (50) Carolina 2020

For my simploring tour on Sunday, June 28th, I picked “Carolina” from scoop.it SL Desitination. The entry led me to a blog post from Maddy Gynoid “Simtipp: Carolina – Juni 2020“.

Carolina is a moderate homestead owned by Arol Lightfoot. I had visited Carolina in July 2019 and wrote a blog post about it (read here). Arol Lightfoot was also involved in La Vie, a place that I visited 3 times, but it was always different (Simploring 2018 (1) La Vie in Winter / La Vie in Second Life / Simploring 2017 (83) La Vie in Autumn).

The Carolina of Summer 2020 is a completely different setting than the one of 2019. What they have in common is a lot of wildlife.

Carolina Summer 2020 – Orientation map and Overview

The most outstanding feature of Carolina are two large rocks with a high plateau. The rocks are connected by a rope bridge. The landing is on one of these rocks right next to a zip lane leading down to the ground level. As there’s no other way to get down to the ground except of flying or jumping down the waterfalls on the neighbour rock, I took the zip lane and landed next to the Lighthouse. I found a nice place to make a first little rest then I walked to the beach.

I walked all along the beach, took a couple of pictures and reached the waterfall. On my way I encountered a bear with its baby. I didn’t dare to disturb the two *winks*. Close to the waterfall is a campsite.

I continued my tour walking around the rock with the waterfall and came into a thicker forest that opened up to a pond where I saw two huts. Both are furnished. One of them had a nice porch with some dogs gathering there and I noticed a board “Wetland protection area”. The other hut seems to be something like a Summer residence. Overall the wetland pond is really a nice spot to enjoy nature and to take some pictures.

From the Summer hut my exploring tour led along the shore with wide meadows, a really very tall ancient oak and a group of wild horses to the only residental house at Carolina. This house is not furbished.

Returning to the large rock with the zip lane there’s another larger pond, which I called “Romantic pond” as it offers nice places to sit and enjoy the nature and the birds.
On my way back I also came across an old VW beetle which is nice for posing (and I did). And in the end there’s a trail with many bushes that are cut in form and with flowers. Another great motif for pictures.

I spent a nice and relaxing hour of simploring Carolina and I enjoyed the nature, the wildlife, the views and the peace. Just the right thing to do on a Sunday morning. Thank you Arol for your newest refurbisment and in particular for sharing it publicly.
