Exploring Traces – Part 3: “Winter Trace”

Of course I visited also Winter Trace, the newest of the 3 sims Summer Trace, Fall Trace and Winter Trace by Kylie Jaxxon and Elvira Kytori. You can find a very detailed description in Inara Pey’s blog “A Winter Trace in Second Life“.

November 19th: Arriving at Winter Trace

Winter Trace consists of several islands. Right at the landing point and close to it are 2 windmills, a characteristic for Winter Trace. The islands are not connected by bridges and the boats can’t be used. But the sea is frozen so you can walk the short distances between the islands. Winter Trace impresses because of the many details. The houses are decorated for the season but life seems to be frozen like the sea – unless you walk into the houses. Walking and being at Winter Trace feels cold yet very peaceful. If you want to have some fun you can sledge downhill at the one hill at Winter Trace.

For me, it was just a short, enjoyable visit. I like the views. And there are many places to enjoy the nature or to get a praticular view. Thank you, Kylie Jaxxon and Elvira Kytori for providing all 3 “Trace”-sims to us (Summer Trace, Fall Trace and Winter Trace). Now we can enjoy every season of the year – all year round!

Exploring Traces – Part 2: “Fall Trace”

After my visit of “Summer Trace” (see Exploring Traces – Part 1: “Summer Trace”) I went visiting “Fall Trace“. That’s kind of a difference. Fall Trace is not scary like many other sims dealing with the autumn and it is not as colourful as autumn can be.

It might be due to the day time of my visit, but Fall Trace spread a very melancholic mood. It felt cold and dark there. Fall Trace is a beach with several houses connected by a wooden path leading through the dunes. I myself went into a boat house and enjoyed the view over the bay, the dark clouds and the very special atmosphere there. As it should be I went inside after some time in the fresh autumn air on the veranda of the boat house and just day warmed up and dreamed a bit.20161119-fall-trace_010

Fall Trace is different and particular because of the mood it spreads (at least for me). Thank you, Kylie Jaxxon and Elvira Kytori!

Exploring Traces – Part 1: “Summer Trace”

There have been several posts about “The Trace Too” in this blog and in Inara Pey’s Living in a modemworld blog:
Exploring Second Life Sunday tours (April 2nd, 2015)
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers (October 3rd, 2015)
Exploring, chatting and Mistress Jenny’s rezzday (March 20th, 2016)
Today I wanted to visit “Winter Trace” after I came across Inara Pey’s blog entry about it “A Winter Trace in Second Life“.

In fact, the owners and creators of Winter Trace, Kylie Jaxxon and Elvira Kytori, run 3 different sims now: Summer Trace, Fall Trace and Winter Trace. The new concept has 3 seasonal sim’s where each will stay for a whole year for all to enjoy, before changing for a new season, and design. I visited all 3 sims Saturday, November 19th.

Summer Trace is the former “The Trace too”. As I visited in March the last time, I couldn’t remember all details, but just after landing it felt like not being here the first time at all. I remembered in particular the colourful field of lavender with the lighthouse and the oldtimer. What a lovely place! I walked over the two islands of Summer Trace, which are connected by a stone bridge and enjoyed the feeling of Summer. At the beach is a large decking for chatting and dancing with a disco equipment now. I don’t remember that from my last visit.

For us, with the winter ahead, Summer Trace is sort of an escape, a short vacation into summer. I like the idea that it is open year round for more short vacations. Thank you, Kylie Jaxxon and Elvira Kytori!
