Simploring 2020 (59) Serenity Reborn

For my simploring tour on Monday, August 3rd, I picked Serentiy Reborn from scoop.it SL Destinations. The entry led me to a post of Maddy Gynoid again “Simtipp: Serenity Reborn“.
Serenity Reborn is an adult homestead. The landmark description just consists of a few tags in English and French: “french, international, photography, swamp, forest, nature, abandoned, cemetery, beach, lake, meeting, relaxation, furry friendly

Serenity Reborn – overview and orientation map

Upon landing you get a bit of basic information about Serenity Reborn. It is not a community and residential sim. It is open to visit for everyone (including those of non-human shape). Although it is an adult place, it is not a sex place and “You’re here on an island inhabited by four people, who wished to share this charming, almost nature overrun place with everyone”. There are 2 private residences, the Mountain Villa and the Swamp Villa, you’re asked to respect privacy.
Serenity Reborn is owned by Vladislav Azarov (aleexkh) and his partner Elara Azarov (Enila Carpathia). Siron (Sinedd Landfall), Katarina Chatalov (abbbysciuto) and A.D.I (Adelaiide Fairlady) are residents. A.D.I is also the builder of the group.

Impressions of Serenity Reborn (1) – around the landing point, in- and outside of the diner

I began my visit at the pier, next to a fisher boat and to a run down, dirty diner. I even dared to step inside of the diner, but you wouldn’t want to eat a burger there, believe me. It is not just dirty inside, it is also dirty outside. I went aland the road and saw a beach that I explored next. The default windlight at Serenity Reborn is dusty and hence i used Annan Adored Dusty for my pictures. That works well and fits to the place mostly, but for some pictures I switched to the way lighter Annan Adored Realistic windlight. The beach is a nice place and the lighthouse building is furnished with love. For sure the beach is one of the best places to be at Serenity Reborn.

Following the road I reached the Lake and Recreation area. There’s a rustic shop that sells about everything. More importantly there are some opportunities to sit and enjoy and there’s even a romantic “geo dome”.

From the parking you can take a few steps and get to the ghost town. Here the dusty windlight really fits best! It is a great background for taking pictures or maybe a place for roleplaying. I liked in particular the graveyard with the three mausoleums, the place is decorated for Halloween throughout the year.

At one side are the ruins of a larger chathedral. I continued my simploring tour walking along the road and came to a scrapyard and finally had a view on the Mountain villa. The scrapyard fits into the vintage / rund down theme of Serenity Reborn. It seems that time stood still here. And most probably not many tourits are visiting it anymore.

I returned to the road and visited the swamp wiht the 2nd private residence. In the swamps I found one single clearly adult item, a cage. And of course I couldn’t refrain from posing in it for a picture! Finally I returned to the landing which is not only close to a (dirty) diner, but also close to a run down motel. Although the rooms were not accessible I suspect it is not a place to stay overnight for me. Luckily we’re in Second Life and can travel home by simply teleporting home *winks*

Serenity Reborn is a quite different sim and that makes it interesting. It offers great background for taking pictures in particular when you seek a run down and dirty background, but it also offers some nice views into nature. I think in particular the ghost town makes Serenity Reborn outstanding.
Thank you Vladislav, Elara, Siron, Katarina and A.D.I for creating Serenity Reborn and for sharing it publicly. I enjoyed my visit!
