I took our motor-boat for a spin and explored the south-west corner of the navigable ocean. With its navy training base, ports and car themed motor island, these sims form a wonderful themed corner of our world.
It's satisfying to navigate by map, and arrive as the sun rises, switching off cruise control so I can squeeze into the smaller waterways and watch the water-side world flow by.
|Chapel at Little Big|
Inspired by the naturalistic planting styles, I took Ayesha to visit when we were next in-world together, and she was as impressed as I.
|Tamara's Garden Centre|
at Linked Hearts
This of course led to a fun shopping trip, on this occasion to Tamara's Garden Centre at Linked Hearts.
Here we picked up ruins, a forest path, some lovely and bargain priced grasses, and I kept finding myself nipping back later for 'just one more thing'! While Ayesha couldn't resist a trip to Julia Hathor's Creative Fantasy shop for a beautiful twisted Maple with detailed gnarled bark.
|Testing Arkady's Horse Carriage|
It was just as I was creating a hill-side stream that Arkady Arkright called with a mysterious request for my presence.
|Landscaping at our Sim|
If I can pull myself away from moving plants this way and that, I plan a visit to explore the new features at IDI, including a docks area, allowing new residents the chance to see how our waterways enhance this virtual world.
Have a great weekend!
