.. 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.

BLOG 042615  pose katink houston st 2  sneak peek lrd_001

Catching my breath, letting it go,
Turning my cheek for the sake of the show
Now that you know, this is my life,
I won’t be told what’s supposed to be right

Catch my breath, no one can hold me back,
I ain’t got time for that
Catch my breath, won’t let them get me down,
It’s all so simple now

.. yuki no yume ~ dream of snow ..

.
 
 
Each day you can admire the moon, the snow and the flowers.
                                                                        (a Japanese proverb)
 
 
Yuki No Yume  112213

As winter arrives in the Northern Hemisphere in our real world, so it does in Second Life.  Winter sims are popping up all over and the joy of the holidays are stirring up events and parties and fund raisers.  In the midst of it all, a beautiful sim has opened.  “Yuki No Yume.. Dream of Snow” is Jac Mornington’s latest development.  Jac has always admired the Japanese winter scenes that he has found in images online, around creations in Second Life and has toyed with opening such a sim to the public for a few years.  When his partner, Rie Silverfall, told him she would love to have a Japanese winter sim, Jac knew he could make it happen.  He set out to find some very awesome landscaping pieces from Alex Bader, Kriss Lehmann, Nadine Reverie, Tobias Novi, Kendra Zaurak, and others.  He then started setting things out.  Playing with the design, looking up images online to help him set his vision of the Japanese landscape.  He picked up some gorgeous builds from Van Auster and Ryusho Ort to bring the little homestead together.  A waterfall falls into a stream which runs through the setting into a creek eddy turning in to a frozen lake where the beautiful Japanese red-crowned cranes play.  The setting is serene, peaceful and beautifully put together.  As you walk along the paths, you will see the movement of the water, the birds, and the other animals… and yes, you will feel that you have fallen in to truly natural existence of winter.  Be sure to visit, the sim is open now and it is not to be missed.
