Simploring 2021 (22) Soul Deep

For my simploring tour on Sunday, May 16th, I picked “Soul Deep“. I read a blogpost from Inara Pey about it: “Going Soul Deep in Second Life” that caught my attention.

Soul Deep is an adult homestead owned and designed by Kaelyn Alecto (thenewkae). And I saw and visited quite some sim’s of her before, most recently her sim “It All Starts With A Smile (IASWAS)” just one year ago (read here).

Kaelyn wrote in her profile “Photography is the story I fail to put into words…“. “Soul Deep” is a place to relax, a place to retreat with friends, with your loved one, or just alone. And “Soul Deep” is a place that offers countless motifs for photgraphers. There’s really a bit of everything and nonetheless the sim is still natural, all of a piece.

Soul Deep” is embedded into a mountain sim surround. It consists of several small islands. In the center is a big pond. The landing is at the shore of this pond on the terrace of a café. From here you can walk on a wooden walkway around the pond.

Along your way you come across many opportunities to sit and enjoy. You even find rafts or a boat large enough for a small party. Just opposed to the landing point across the pond is the largest bilding complex of “Soul Deep“, a harbour building with a naval petrol station, a shipyard and a residential building (the blue house, which doors were locked hence I didn’t look into it). The posters, the lobster buoys, the whole set-up looks like a harbour building in New England.

Not far from there you can walk over a little bridge to the ruins of a church, another romantic place to stay for a while. You also find some nice motifs including birds or other wildlife. Back on the main walkway there are more places to sit and a larger event area with a stage.

I went or better expressed I swam to the lodge next. Acutally in Second Life you can fly the little distance. The logde is a big residential house, fully furnished. On the large terrace everthing is prepared for a bigger event, maybe an anniversary, a birthday party or a wedding. There’s also a little bar. And no sutprise there are more places to sit and enjoy. A bit off the island with the ladge is another cosy place to retreat.

As mentioned before “Soul Deep” offers many different motifs for photographers. Not far from the landing point is a forest, with another ruin that could be a nice background for romantic pictures, and with a camping site. If you want some higher rocks or a background witu mountains, then there are some high rocks you can climb up to and there you even find a goat.

And finally there are also waterfalls and beaches – a bit of everything. And have I mentioned the many places to sit and enjoy? I think I did.

Soul Deep” is a lovely sim with a broad variety of cosy places and different backgrounds for photogrpahers: “Photography is the story Kaelyn fails to put into words…“.
Thank you for this great place to hang around, Kaelyn. I enjoyed my Sunday morning simploring tour a lot.
