Cadeling Garden

Today, I again peeked into the Showcase Search section in Second Life.  First listing under Editors’ Picks is Cadeling Garden.  The photo wasn’t all that alluring, but since the description indicated that this was the world of two French artists, I thought… Let me go see!  I teleported over and landed right in water, or so I thought.  Actually the whole sim is just a bit underwater as if it has been flooded a wee bit.  This allows the scenic spots to be connected by stepping stones and adds to the beauty.

The sim has two buildings and the rest is open space with areas to have a sit or swing all around.  One building houses the real life art of Cadel Abubakar and Ling Serenity.  The other building is used for Ling’s shop, Bird Next Door.  Bird Next Door (or BND) has some cute items and the prices are amazingly affordable.

This couple displays their love for art and serene spaces in such a loving manner.  I am pleased that I decided to visit Cadeling Garden and recommend that you do too!

The words in the water … such a beautiful idea…are the lyrics from “From the Top of the World” by My Brightest Diamond:

At the end of the sea
There waits my wind
To carry me

Through storms we will sail ahead
Just to gaze at the top of the world

From the bottom of the world
We looked up and saw the moon
And gazing at it then we fell
In love,  in love

So we made up our minds
To arrive smiling
Yet we made up our minds
To touch the height of life
And find out what we felt for it
How we felt for it, How we felt for it

From the top of the world
We looked up and saw the sun
And gazing at it then we fell
In love, in love
