Simploring 2019 (82) Scarlett Isle

Following Inara Pey’s blog post “The natural beauty of Scarlett Isle in Second Life” I visited Scarlett Isle.

Scarlett Isle is a moderate homestead and the home of Grace & Ziggy Sixpence & Tempest Rosca (Grace Sixpence, Zigmal, Tempest Rosca). It was designed and landscaped by Staubi Reilig (engelsstaub).

Scarlett Isle – overview

Back in 2018 I visited Achill Island, which was Grace and Ziggy’s home that time (Simploring 2018 (99) Achill Island). Achill Island doesn’t exist anymore. I assume that Scarlett Isle is the replacement for it. Grace Sixpence is also involved and co-owning Mystic Timbers which I visit last month (see Simploring 2019 (65) Mystic Timbers  and Simploring 2019 (66) Mystic Timbers – Extra Worlds)

And Staubi (engelsstaub) isn’t unknown for me as well. She designed and owns Whimberly, which I visited in 2017 (Simploring 2017 (7) Whimberly) and in 2018 (Simploring 2018 (3) Whimberly revisited). Whimberly still exists and has changed since my last visit. I intend to visit it soon again.

Besides being a homeplace Scarlett Isle was designed to be used by those interested in photography and it fully fulfills this intention. The landing point is on one of the two islands close to a creek that devides the sim into two islands, on a smaller third island is a lighthouse overlooking Scarlett Isle.

The island where you land is fully public. It offers a lovely beach with quite some opportunities to sit and dream, be it alone or with your loved one. Close to the beach is a lovely pond with a decking that invites to take a rest. There’s one building on this island. On it’s porch you can once again sit and enjoy. Inside is one bedroom and on from 2nd floor you have a nice view over the island and the beach. Next to the house is another smaller beach.

You can get to the other island either over a tree that spans over the creek or you take the big suspension bridge. This island offers some very nice views for taking pictures. The two houses with their large deckings are private and secured with a security orb. If you get too close you have 15 seconds to retreat, so be careful *winks*. I explored the other beach and found a beach chair there. I like these chairs as they remind me of many vacations in RL.

Scarlett Isle is a peaceful and beautiful place to retreat or to simply enjoy an hour in a lovely environment. Most views you get look just amazing, like being painted. I enjoyed exploring and winding down from everyday life. Thank you Grace, Ziggy and Tempest for sharing most parts of your home with the public and thank you Staubi for designing this place. I had a lovely one hour vacation.

Simploring 2019 (66) Mystic Timbers – Extra worlds

On Saturday, June first, I continued exploring Mystic Timbers (read Simploring 2019 (65) Mystic Timbers). This time I focused on the 6 places offered by the teleport board next to the landing point at Mystic Timbers: Rain City, Road to Nowhere, Red Room Spa, Roofs of Paris, The Rendezvous, The Retreat. All these places are located in the sky above Mystic Timbers. They offer particular backgrounds for photographers and some can also to used for roleplay or for adult scenes. That’s why Mystic Timbers is rated adult.

I started with Rain City. As the name implies, it rains there. Rain City offers apocalyptic urban street scenes with crashed and burning cars. Most of Rain City is just facade. You can enter a boxing studio though and I did. I even tried boxing against a sand bag.

The subway entries aren’t fake as well, if you walk down you get some great bakdrops for subway stations. And there’s also a red light district that can be used as backdrop. Of course I posed there a bit although this time I wasn’t dressed for it but still in my summer outfit from our Friday night party.

Road to Nowhere is a scenery of motel located at a lonesome highway in the middle of nothing, a desert is around the motel. The bike in front of the motel offers some nice poses and the scenery itself it once a again a nice backdrop.

The Red Room Spa is an adult place, very luxurious with a big spa, some bdsm gear, a lovely bathroom, a seperate corner for dressing, a stylish living room and a big hall for party and events.

The Rendezvous is one single room with windows looking out to London City. Basically it is a bedroom, for sure nice to meet your loved one.

Mystic Timbers – The Rendezvous and Roofs of Paris

The Roofs of Paris is a scenery that I did see before, yet I don’t remember where. The landing is on a roof. I didn’t find any poses, you have to rezz those yourself for taking pictures with this background. But be careful, you might fall …. down to Msytic Timbers

The last place I visited was The Retreat. Again that is just one room. All furniture is covered with sheets as are the pictures on the walls. But the furniture has adult poses and the rug in front of the fireplace has whole scenes. It might be a great place to take Jenny to, as it is not that obvious what’s hidden there.

Mystic Timbers – The Retreat

All the 6 extra worlds offer different backdrops and sceneries for photographers and together with Mystc Timbers itself there’s almost everything covered. Not that I persoanlly miss that, but sc-fi is not covered, nor fantasy (but there’re enough other places for that).
Mystic Timbers is owned by a group of 9 people: Graice (graice2), Soffy Ronwood, Elise Sirnah, Grace Sixpence, Morgan (morganmonroe1), Lofty Lemur, Bee (filipa emor), Silivren (Neida Rae) and sol (solking)Thank you all for providing Mystic Timbers and the 6 extra Worlds to the public! I enjoyed my visit and had fun exploring the different areas.

Simploring 2019 (65) Mystic Timbers

For my simploring tour on Friday, May 31st, I picked Mystic Timbers from scoop.it SL Destinations. Mystic Timbers is located in a full region rated adult. As far as I could find out, Mystic Timbers is owned by sol (solking).

According to the landmark description Mystic Timbers is in the English countryside. It has a bustling harbour, promenades and a narrow beach, there’re vibrant shops to persue at your leisure and there’s a gallery. Mystic Timbers is intended to be a place for photographers and bloggers or just to have fun and to enjoy the environment.

Mystic Timbers – overview

The landing point is in the town close to the harbour. Right next to the where you land is a teleporter board to access 6 different places, that are on skyplatforms. Also quite close to the landing point I found an office with a bit more information. Although Mystic Timbers is an adult sim, you should refrain from nakedness at least on the ground level. You can rent some of the houses at Mystic Timbers.

I decided to postpone a visit to the sky platforms and to explore the ground level first. I started with the gallery and had just a short look inside and at the current exhibition called “Winter and Kazrakk”. I postponed a more detailed visit to the gallery as well.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (2) – the beach and the main street

I started my visit walking to the beach and I had a look at the 2 small beach houses. Then I walked along the main street of the town. It is quite picturesque and some of the shops are occupied. At the end of the street you reach a lovely park. In it’s center is a pond with some ducks, a swan and a swan boat. And of course there’re several spots to sit and enjoy. Close to the park is also a spot just for photographers where you could pose in front of decorated pieces of a ruin.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (3) – around the park

At one edge of Mystic Timbers is a farm with all what you expect there, farmers market, a tractor, horses, a stall, a windmill, almost every farm background is available. Along the shore of Mystic Timbers you find various residential houses, from a small hut to a larger manor. As far as I checked none of those are furnished, hence I assume they might be available for rent.

Quite outstanding is the large rotunda. From there you have a nice view on the lighthouse and and to the beach. A large and nicely decorated terrace invites to take a break and to enjoy. Inside of the rotunda is swimming pool that is used for sea plants. You can for sure spend some romantic time in the rotunda.

What else? I saw the ruin of a gazebo and the chapel with a graveyard. I saw some hidden romantic spots to cuddle. I saw many backdrops for pictures. And I saw what seems to be an artists’ colony with  funny houses (one seems to be an old circus trailer).

Mystic Timbers is a quite varied sim that offers a bit of everything for photographers and for people who just like to enjoy a lovely picturesque environment. Thank you sol (solking) for providing the sim to the public! I enjoyed my visit and exploring it a lot.

P.S.: When this post was published I talked with sol who told me that actually a group of 9 People own Mystic Timbers. I asked for a list …. and here it is. Mystic Timbers is owned by: Graice (graice2), Soffy Ronwood, Elise Sirnah, Grace Sixpence, Morgan (morganmonroe1), Lofty Lemur, Bee (filipa emor), Silivren (Neida Rae) and sol (solking). Thank you all!
