 Second Life Destinations - End of an era

 Second Life Destinations - End of an era | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

My collation of Second Life travel blogs was started 11th June 2013 as a response to reading Second Life residents questioning where they could find information about good places to visit on the grid.

Since then I have posted 23400 posts and had over half a million visits to the collation.
 
Nothing remains the same and I no longer find I have the energy to maintain this as I wish, I find myself missing blogs or making errors and so from today the Scoop.it will receive no further posts.
 
Thank you so much for all the support & encouragement I have received over the years.
I do hope that you will continue to follow the bloggers directly, it is easy to do just using a free feed aggregator like Feedly.

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!" ~

Ann Owiti's insight:

"Up near the Canadian border glaciers have leveled the earth to where you can see that it's curved. The winds move across the landscape interrupted only by the lines of trees planted there to interfere.

Agriculture is the cornerstone and the crops are gold. There are fewer than 9 people here for every square mile, but most will share a cup of coffee and a smile if you're polite. Welcome to North Dakota."

"Landing point is at a small train station. From there a lift takes you up into the mountains. The slope has a gentle incline. Left and right there are different wooden huts to rest and warm up and whatever comes to mind. The whole thing is skillfully embedded between high mountain ranges (Sim Surround).

Linden Lab is the owner of these regions.
There are two regions of The Portal Park. Both are completely the same. I always use the region where there are the fewest avatars.
TELEPORT THE PORTAL PARK
TELEPORT THE PORTAL PARK 2

The landing area is the starting point for various experiences. All of which are accessible through a large gate (some are currently closed). Today I would like to introduce you to a very special one or remind you that I personally still enjoy using it. From time to time. The cornfield. Can be used all year round and of course even more suitable for Halloween.

 Nelipot – Autumn 21 - Second Life

 Nelipot – Autumn 21 - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

 I read Inara Pey’s blogpost “Nelipot’s Autumn peace in Second Life” and it tempted me immediately to visit the place myself as I love the colours of Autumn.

Nelipot is a moderate homestead owned and designed by Shawn Shakespeare (SkinnyNilla) and Lien (Lien Lowe). It consists of 4 smaller islands and one bigger island. The landing is on one of the small islands right next to a lovely camping site. From here you have already the first great views into the colours of Autumn. The trees glow in different colours, the ground is full of leaves and more leaves are falling.

Ann Owiti's insight:

'Whitby: Birth of Dracula' Second Life 

'Whitby: Birth of Dracula' Second Life  | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Tucked into the mouth of the river Esk on Yorkshire’s rugged coast is the town of Whitby. It’s a place that many from outside of Great Britain might not have heard of, yet it is a place steeped in history and literature. It was, for example, the place from which Captain James Cook learned the ropes (literally and figuratively) as a merchant navy seaman. In fact, the ship on which he completed his first great voyage to the Pacific Ocean (1768-1771), HMS Endeavour, was originally a Whitby “Cat” collier (called the Earl of Pembroke). It is a town overlooked by the ruins of a once great Abbey that, in 664, hosted a synod called by King Oswiu of Northumbria, in order to set fast the rule that his kingdom would calculate Easter and observe the monastic tonsure according to the customs of Rome.

Ann Owiti's insight:

Place profile "Welcome to Whitby ! For those unfamiliar with the place or name, it is a real seaside town and port, in the north east of England. It was here in 1890 that Bram stoker was inspired to write his novel Dracula, the rest is history, as they say.
He also used the location in the novel as the home of Lucy Westenra
and her family home Westenra Manor, which seems to be modelled around the real Manor that once stood just outside the Abbey.
The Town is now also famous for its Steampunk weekend once a year, when the town is overrun by the weird and wonderful.
This concentrated little interpretation of mine is based far more on the FF Coppola Movie than the book, and is nothing much at all like reality. In fact it is all my own imagining apart from some basic landmarks like the once single Pier, the steps leading to, the Church, the Manor and the Abbey. I also spent quite a bit of time trying to recreate a tiered garden ending at , what would become, Lucy's Tomb.
For me it also has a very strong Lovecraftian feel. A sort of English Innsmouth. I was also fascinated to discover some time back that Whitby was once a well know Whaling port. Great I can add my Whaling inn that surfaces all over the place :)
So, its sometime around the end of the 1880's, Victorian, Vampire and Steampunk, are the desired apparels. A;ll thats left for me to say is, Happy Halloween, Enjoy!"

Ann Owiti's insight:

"Deep in the woods is found a place of old dark magic and wilted lace. Dry bones rise up to cast a glow, of Witches' spells, beet roots and toes. Your heart slows down within your chest and beastie souls lie down to rest. As spirits sway and creatures croon, bid goodnight, fly the Witches' Moon."  Tolla Crisp

Talefeathers : The Incredible Art of Poppy Morris – Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Poppy Morris weaves an engaging narrative through her exquisite paintings created primarily using bright, vibrant colors. Check out her art at Janus Gallery II!

Sinful Retreat, owned and managed by Chuck Clip (chuckmatrix.clip) and Jewell (fallenaurora.jewell), has seen many talented artists over the past few months and we have featured a number of them on our blog as well. Although I had decided to take a break for another week or so from writing, a visit to the latest exhibition at Janus Gallery II by artist Poppy Morris prompted me to get back in front of my computer and start typing once again.
