Simploring 2021 (17) Grauland April 2021

I came across Grauland again when I scrolled through scoop.it SL Destinations. I have visited Grauland in 2019 the first time (read here) and three times in 2020 (read here, here and here). Each redesign was worth a visit so far. And I was not disappointed this time once again.

Grauland April 2021 – Bird’s eye view and orientation map / at the landing point

Grauland is an adult homestead owned by JimGarand. He runs a shop for poses (M-1 Art Poses) in the skies above the sim. You can reach the shop by a teleporter right at the landing point.

Impressions of Grauland April 2021 (1) – Stonehenge, Easter island stone heads, the tropical forest, panarama house

The current setting consists of two tropical islands that are connected by a bridge. The island on which you land has a circle of stones – Stonehenge – on a high plateau, the famous Easter Island stone heads nearby. It has several nice beaches, a tropical forest and a large spacious modern bungalow overlooking the sea. I called this island “Stonehenge island”

The other island, which I named “Villa island”, is the homeplace of someone rich. It is a paradise created in Second Life. A place you’d dream to call your home. THe good news it: in Second Life such a place is affordable.
How would someone rich live? In a large mordern and very individual house – it is there.
There would be a garden, nicely layed out with a gazebo, maybe a bit enclosed for privacy – it is there.
There has to be a pool, a large pool, maybe with a fountaine and also providing some exclusivity – it is there.

What else? Yes, a pier with a yacht. It is not there *winks*. But there’s one of these old motoryachts that are used by the super rich people at the Cote d’Azure just to drive around a bit. And there is a seperate helicopter landing point.

On the villa island is also the wreck of a plane, hidden under trees and bushes. A perfect place to take pictures. And of course you find also a few opportunities to sit and watch.

I went back to the Stonehenge island and amde a tour with a jet ski. That is always fun and provides other views on the island. I also tried some of the nice opportunities to sit and watch and enjoy the environment.

Once again Jim (JimGarand) created a nice and outstanding new place. I did enjoy my visit. I appreciate it a lot when shop owners combine their business with a place to visit. Thank you Jim for creating Grauland and sharing it publicly. Great work!
