Simploring 2019 (59) Missing Melody – May 2019

In January I visited Missing Melody (read Simploring 2019 (5) Missing Melody). When I saw posts and pictures about it on scoop.it SL Destinations recently I only recognized the name but not the sim itself, that has changed completely. Hence I decided to visit it again.

Missing Melody – May 2019 – overview and first impressions

Missing Melody is a moderate homestead owned by Bambi (norahbrent). The landmark description has changed as well as the whole design:
Missing Melody. Waking up to a new dawn. Smiling at the awaking sun humming a nostalgic tune. Missing Melody is a collaboration of best friends coming together to create something new. Dedicated with love to Conni. RIP

Impressions of Missing Melody – May 2019 (1)

In the center of Missing Melody is a row of 4 houses, a market with some stands, a cafe, some cars, a street and a promenade. Closeby is a large beach with a wooden pier that is home to a small fair. The whole setting looks quite Mediterrean. There’re 3 smaller islands. One seems to be a private home and I didn’t look inside.

Missing Melody is very picturesque and invites to stay, to take pictures, to enjoy a cafe, to have a closer look at all the details on the market, to sit and relax at the beach or to simply enjoy an hour in a little paradise.

One of the three islands nearby is home for a gallery, Conni’s RIP gallery. Bambi writes about Conni and this gallery in her profile:
On the hill surrounded by flowers in bloom lays a country house safely watching over to Missing Melody. Conni’s house is now a gallery dedicated in her memory. Please feel free to visit. Look at her art, read the little memories her friends and loved ones shared. You can add your own memory in the guest book. The gallery will be the only thing that will remain as is in Missing Melody.

Of course I visited the gallery. It is touching to read in the guest book and to see all the pictures. You can sense all the happy hours spent in Second Life. It is another way to keep the memories of this virtual world in our real life. The orginal landmark description from my first visit to Missing Melody back in January can now be found in Bambi’s profile and fits very well:
What is a Missing Melody? It’s that song in your head that you can’t get out but not sure how it really goes. It’s that temptation you want to have in your life so you can fight to resist. It’s that place in your heart that is always waiting to be filled.

Missing Melody did conjure a smile on my face. I enjoyed my visit and I might visit again, just to enjoy. Thank you Bambi for creating this new sim and sharing it with the public.

Simploring 2019 (5) Missing Melody

For my last simploring tour in 2018 on New Year’s Eve afternoon I picked Missing Melody from scoop.it SL Destinations. There have been already several publications about this sim on various blogs. It seems to change with the season and is all winterly now. Missing Melody is a homestead, rated moderate. It is owned and created by Bambi (norahbrent).

Missing Melody Overview

Bambi writes about her sim in the landmark’s description:
Missing Melody. Chime to an old winter song. A white blanket of snow is wrapping Missing Melody in a quiet soothing and soft cool silk. A collaboration of best friends coming together to create something new. Enjoy! xx

I looked up Bambi (norahbrent)’s profile and there Bambi wrote why she named her sim Missing Melody:
What is a Missing Melody? It’s that song in your head that you can’t get out but not sure how it really goes. It’s that temptation you want to have in your life so you can fight to resist. It’s that place in your heart that is always waiting to be filled. It’s that little wicked smile when a naughty thought crosses your mind.

Impressions of Missing Melody (1) – Landing point and Fountain island

Missing Melody is another lovely sim decorcated for the season and there’s a lot to explore and discover. Missing Melody also provides spots to sit and enjoy as well as some fun activities. I went from the Landing point along the road over the big covered bridge to the fountain. Along the way is a board where you can rezz a sleigh. It works, yet a hill is missing :-). At the end of the covered bridge are snowballs that you can use for a snowball fight. Returning from the fountain I had a look at the old railroad engine which is just a museum object, but somehow these engines have something intriguing, don’t they?

I explored the farm with the paddock and went over the smaller covered bridge to the ice skating and to the Christmas gazebo. At the ice skating is a board where you can get skaters. I really liked the Christmas gazebo with it’s Christmas tree. It provides some lovely animations even for one person alone. You should try it out.

Then I went to the ruins. This might be the rests of a bigger church. At the place you’d expect the altar is a piano. Some ice sculptures are rezzed to decorate the place with is a great spot to dance. Some birds like this place, hence you can also watch them.

Impressions of Missing Melody (4) – The ruins

Following the shore I came to Santa’s house. A lot of small animals have found home here in the snow and a deer is searching grass in front of the house. The chimney is smoking and the snow on the roof is about to slide down due to the warmth. Behind the house is a nice scene with 2 penguins and a dog. You can even lay down into the snow to watch the three – cute!

Impressions of Missing Melody (5) – at Santa’s house

On my way returning to the landingpoint I found a desperate Santa who had just had a crash with his sleigh. The deers were running around confused. What a scene! What a wide smile it conjured on my face! Next to the landing point is another house which is used as an atelier.

Missing Melody is a very picturesque sim offering a lot for photgraphers like me. It also offers a lot of fun and it is a place to dream about, peaceful and romantic, a place you wanna be, idyllic world. And when I can’t get a melody out of my head, I might remember this place. Just lovely. I did enjoy my visit a lot.
Thank you Bambi (norahbrent) for providing your place with the public.
