Diary 2019 (154) October 3rd – A tour with Kitty to Autumn in SL

Thursday, October 3rd, I had some time for simploring in the morning as we had a national holiday in Germany. Kitty was inworld and we chatted in IM. I hadn’t yet decided where to go. Spontaneously I took Kitty with me on an Autumn tour to places that I had seen before. We started at “The Beguinage of Bruges“, a place that I had visited in November 2018 the first time (read Simploring 2018 (100) The Beguinage of Bruges). The place has not changed much and I enjoyed seeing it again. Kitty and I talked about Bruges and Kitty told me about her visit to Bruges in RL. We enjoyed the colours of Autumn and walked around a bit.

Then we went on to Authors Point, that I had visited in Spring 2019 (read Simploring 2019 (36) Authors Point). Just recently I saw some posts about Authors Point again showing it in Autumn and I had seen it only in Spring so far. What changed with the season is the Fantasy plateau, where the leaves of the many trees glow in Autumn colours. Just lovely! Kitty found a new friend there, a unicorn that followed her as long as we were on the plateau. We had fun!

Finally I took Kitty to Fleur Nederland [Dutch] (read Simploring 2019 (102) Fleur Nederland [Dutch]), a place I had visited just a few days before.

I gave a quick tour to Kitty, we had a drink at the dinner hut and we visited the town & harbour. To my surprise, there was a change since my visit -we came across an haunted house, an addition for Halloween. We didn’t go in there though as my time was up and I had to return to RL.
And that’s it about my Kitty-Autumn-morning.

Simploring 2019 (36) Authors Point

Saturday, March 16th, I picked Authors Point from scoop.it SL Destinations for my simploring tour.
Authors point is an adult homestead, owned by Weed Bombastic. It consists of two connected islands, both of them having steep cliffs and rocks and a plain plateau. Several residential homes are arranged around the islands on the sea level like satellites.

Authors Point – overview

The two islands are quite different. The plateau of the island, where you land, is dominated by grassland which glows golden like in autumn. Besides a residential home, that is open to the public, there’s not much else on the plateau, just a wind mill and some single trees. The place is great for taking picures.

I went down to the sea level and had a look at the different residential homes. Some of them were rented out at the time of my visit, some were available. They all have access the to sea and their architecture is interesting, they have interlaced levels and most of them have 2 and more stories.

The plateau of the other island is occupied by kind of a fantasy world. The trees and flowers glow in strong colours, in pink and blue and green. There’re paths and several opportunities to sit and cuddle. I liked in particular a tree, which was decorated with several books, on its base I could sit down and read.

Impressions of Authors Point (3) – the “Fantasy”-plateau

At one side the two islands are connected on the sea level by a dark gravel beach. Although this side of Authors point looks a bit inhospitable it offers some scenic views and a campfire place.

I ended my visit where I began it, on the first island’s plateau. On an intermediate level between the plateau and the sea level I found a piano placed admist the grassland overlooking the sea.

I can’t judge about Authors Point‘s community but the two islands offer nice public spots and great views. In particular the golden shimmering grassland plateau is impressive. And the those who tend more to fantasy will enjoy the other island’s plateau. I liked it’s colourfulness. Thank you, Weed Bombastic for sharing Authors Point with the public.
