Simploring 2020 (68) La Vie (September 2020)

For my simploring tour on Thursday, September 3rd, I picked La Vie from scoop.it SL Destinations. The name did ring a bell as I visited the predecessor sims back in 2016, 2017 and 2018. My last vbisit was to La Vie in Winter (read here).

The entry on led scoop.it SL Destinations led to a post from Maddy Gynoid “Simtipp: La Vie (September 2020)” (in German), which I read before visiting.

La Vie (September 2020) – Orientation map and at the landing point

La Vie is an adult homestead owned by Krys Vita and her partner CarterNolan. As far as Maddy found out, Krys and her partner designed La Vie. The sim must have been quite new at the time of my visit as there was no landmark description, no tip jar, no boards nor notecard giver. That might have changed when this post will be published.

Impressions of La Vie (September 2020) (1) – walking to the lighthouse

La Vie is a litte sailing and vacation paradies together with a bird colony and bird preservation area. The selected windlight is quite particular diving the scenery into red and yellow tones. Sometimes it looks a bit kitchy – but nature can be like this sometimes. I kept the windlight but had to play with the time of day and the angle of the sun to get nice pictures.

Impressions of La Vie (September 2020) (2) – the marshland and the observation tower

The landing at La Vie is at one corner of the sime and wooden walkways lead from there over sandbank and marshland. The sound of birds is almost omnipresent. The views are breathtaking. Next to the wooden walkways you can find some nice places to sit and watch. You can also go to be beach for a sunbath. I walked to the lighthouse first.

From there I walked along and through the marshland where you find more cosy places until I reached a big wooden tower. I think this tower was build to observe all the birds that fly around this tower. The upper level of the tower is furnished and I made a short break there and enjoyed the view over the sim.

Impressions of La Vie (September 2020) (4) – harbour master / harbour town

For me the absolute hightlight of La Vie is the harbour town, a real sailor’s paradise. The boards and ads there provide the impression being in New England or Martha’s vineyard. There are several beautiful arranged houses built on piers: the harbour master, restaurants and clubhouses as well as the harbour town fitness center and a tackle shop for the sailors. Two large sailing yachts are in the harbour as well as a fishing boat. The whole scene is just picturesque.

Next to the harbour town is a shipyard and a private home with a large motor yacht at the peir. The doors were locked, hence I assume it must be a private place. I enjoyed another great view on the town from a shed a bit aside.

La Vie offers a lot of spectacular views, a place to take many many pictures or a place to wind down and to simply listen to the sounds of the birds. I enjoyed my visit a lot. Thank you Krys Vita and CarterNolan. I intend to come back.
