West of the Rain 072616

A new sim has been raised from the great Linden sea… “West of the Rain” has come online recently.  This gorgeous sim created by Oobleck (Allagash) and his partner NODNOL Jameson is loosely based upon the San Juan Islands in Washington state.  If you look up the real life location, you will definitely see the similarities.  The region has an adorable main street type area with hotel, cafes, book store, music store, general store, etc.  No detail forgotten, it is a place you can poke your head in to nearly every build and find something of interest.

Upon landing you find yourself on the ferry pier, from there, just walk through the shops and around the highway or venture off-road as well.  It’s a public and full region so bring your friends for an excursion. Stop in the coffee shop, visit the lighthouse, hang out around the lake, or sit on a beach… lots of nooks and places to relax.  Be sure to visit the ship yard and find The Athletic Club where you might find someone spinning tunes.

Oobleck and NODNOL created the experience because they love the area in Washington.  The description on the land is “A place for social, photography, ongoing events, music, and installations.”  And as you see here, it is very photogenic.

Be sure to visit soon… and if Oobs or Nod are around, make sure you wave and thank them for bringing such an awesome place to the grid!

.. all made of stars ..

Sparkles abound … the stars fall from the sky.  She wonders if she should make a wish or two or more.  But do wishes really come true?  In her experience, the likelihood is slim. But she is still hopeful, still wants to make the leap…to hope, to dream, to yearn, to pray… she makes the wish as the stars continue to sprinkle around her. A dreamy state of being helps the possibilities seem endless.  She will wake up tomorrow… but for now… the wish takes her to a wonderfully happy place.
