.. come with me to the beach ..

A day at the beach with a close friend… sunbathing, reading the latest mags, dipping our toes now and then in the ocean, loads of gossip and so many laughs… this is a great way spend a warm spring day.  Still not too hot and the fresh air is so enjoyable.  A cooler close by to ensure we have all the drinks we need and a dog to run on the beach with, what more could you ask for?

041817 wwinxandflair friendsThe pose for two avatars shown above is from Winx & Flair and called Summer Secrets. It is a great girlfriend pose and could be used at the beach, at the house, or in the grass.  It’s adjustable and easy to fit for both of our avis.  

Sometimes when you are at the beach, you are lucky enough to watch the surfers, paddleboarders and even skimboarders.  Occasionally, one of the guys might catch your eye and you spend the afternoon hanging out… maybe he offers to teach you to surf or you just enjoy watching him swim out and surf back in.  Either way, if you are enjoying, hopefully you have the opportunity to stick around and enjoy the sunset into the horizon – a beautiful way to end the day at the beach.

041817 senses couple 70 Pose FairThe above pose and prop are from ::: Senses :::, a pose shop new to me.  This set is Couples pose 70 and it is was perfect for beach pose.  The only adjustment that was needed for our avis was with the surfboard.  The board was transfer so I was able to hand it off to Sol for the pic which made it easier to adjust. 

Pose Fair 2017 is open now with so many of the amazing Second Life pose creators all together in one place to display their creations!  Both of the poses above can be found at Pose Fair 2017 until April 29th.

This round had some wonderful items as always.  So many creators come out with some very imaginative items each round and this one has been no exception.  From the wonderful pieces in this armor from Remarkable Oblivion to the adorable Apocalypse cat from CLAVv to the Driftwood Horse from Black Bantam and the Wearable Hover Bike from Aitui, so many different and fun items to add to your inventory. There are usually items to help you explore a role play genre, set up house, travel across the region, or accessorize in some fantastic way – we all wait for the opening and we rush around trying to get the favorite item, the desired color and those elusive rare items.

The Arcade June 2014 Post 3

What is one to say about June,
the time of perfect young summer,
the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months,
and with as yet no sign to remind one
that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.
~ Gertrude Jekyll
