Simploring 2019 (13) A way of life

I looked up SL Destinations and came across a blog entry of Inara Pey “A Way of Life in Second Life“, in which she reported about her visit to a sim named “a way of life“.

“a way of life” – overview

a way of life” is a homestead owned by Elyjia Baxton. She also created Tavana Island, an island that I visited back in 2017 (read here). The landmark description just contains the link to the flickr group  but in Elyjia’s profile I found a text about “a way of life“, which is quite fitting:
Discover a landscape of rustic nature with farms and paths, places to walk, green landscapes, bordered by a beach. A quiet, soothing place with many perfect places for photography

Impressions of “a way of life” (1)

a way of life” consists of several islands of which some are connected by bridges or rocks, to get to some others, you’ll have to swim. The landing point is on the terrace of the only residential house at “a way of life“. It overlooks the sea from one side. The house itself is built in a Mediterrean style and it is only sparsely furnished (yet?). From there I began to explore “a way of life“.

I visited the chapel, the windmill and the barn. Wherever you turn your view to, “a way of life” is beautiful in it’s rural simplicity and peace. I liked in particular the natural pond and the pier where you can sit and simply enjoy the quietness.

The lighthouse is on a seperate island and a lot of birds are flying around it. You could take a rest in the gazebo, in which you’ll also find a telescope. The area around the cabin and the nearby beach offer additional cosy places to enjoy the environment or, like I did, for taking pictures.

There’s not much I can write about “a way of life“. It is a perfectly made dream of a place to be, peaceful and natural, rural with it’s own charme. I enjoyed my visit and the views a lot.

Thank you Elyjia for sharing your place with the public!

Simploring 2017 (82) Tavana Island

Tuesday, October 10th, my simploring tour let to Tavana Island. There’s a blog post about it on Inara Pey’s blog “Tavana Island’s autumnal beauty in Second Life” which caught my attention. Although I don’t like that the summer is ending, I do like the beauty of autumn.

Tavana Island has a Mediterrean touch and the island is surrounded by several smaller islands. On the main island there’s a bigger villa and a farm, a chapel, a gazebo, a windmill and a beach. A quite big sailing yacht anchors by the island. Everything radiates a relaxed and peaceful mood. You can dance at the Gazebo and or simple select one of the many places to sit or cuddle, be it at the beach or in hut, just enjoying the peace and the nature.

I tried some of the leisure spots as well as I roamed over Tavana Island and the other (smaller islands). For me it seems to be late summer here, although there are some indications of the arriving autmn, like the pumpkins, that I saw. I also enjoyed the views on the islands as a whole. Some of the pictures, that I took, look a like watercolour paintings as the colours of the gras, the rocks, the trees and the leaves melt into eachother. That all contributed to the peaceful mood of Tavana Island.

Tavana Island is owned by Brayan Friller (brayan26.friller) and was designed by him and Elyjia (elyjia.baxton) according to Inara Pey’s blog entry. Many thanks for providing your place for the public, Brayan. It’s just a beautiful place to relax or for taking pictures. I had a very enjoyable visit.
