Lunchtime Adventures

S&S Bike Closeup

Eden and I needed to escape the office, so we headed down to the ocean for a little fresh air. What better way to explore the beach than with a bike ride!?! And why not take a friend along, with this Blue Tandem Bicycle from [TUFF]! The rusting and chipping of the paint are the sorts of details I am drawn to– the wear and tear of things well loved. Don’t be scared if you end up on the back seat. The steering system makes it easy for any driver to navigate. It’s automatically set to cruise control. Just hop on and ride!

S&S Down the Boardwalk

This row of 14 Palm Trees by Kazza creates the perfect allée for any beach path or boardwalk. I was instantly impressed with how the shadows move over the sand, giving proof to us on the ground that wind is blowing through the leaves. The 14 palm set is only 3 prims, including the shadow –AND– it is copiable, which means you can frame an entire sim with a tropical tree lined border without emptying your wallet or your prim count!

S&S Shoes Closeup 4

I’ve never had good luck with flip flops and bike pedals, so I opted for these Tangerine Deck Shoes from *BOOM*.  Bright colors and comfort are always a perfect combination for any afternoon outing. And I have to say, they are incredibly comfortable.

S&S Lighthouse Metapic 5

But sadly, there was work to be done and we had to ride back to the office. But CVR‘s Off-Sim Lighthouse was such a beautiful site in the distance, that Eden refused to leave without taking one last picture.

Until next time….

The Summoning

~Oceania Breedables~ The Summoning

From the Photo Journal of Eden Malik:

Maybe some folks take great delight in swimming with the creatures near the surface, but personally?  I enjoy the ones lurking in the shadows.   In this instance, a swarm of beautiful, ferocious sharks were stirred from the depths by the haunting call of a light in the dark.

In this photo, I chose to showcase Oceania’s sleek Black Tipped Reef Sharks, accompanied by the scales and tail of Tideborn’sZale‘. Joined by Boudoir’s Morena‘ hair and finally the golden ‘Mandarin’ eyes of Poetic Colors, it made for a wildly seductive sorceress summoning her finned companions.

Curiosity

~Oceania Breedables~ Curiosity

The beauty of Second Life is that even in the darkest of spaces, you can encounter an entirely new world. Though you might be used to seeing Eden and I in our human forms, our love of the ocean extends past the surface. One of our favorite ways to enjoy our sharks is swim side by side with them, indulging in the peace at the bottom of the sea.

There are some absolutely fabulous mermaid designers in Second Life, and we’ll be showing more of their work as we take you through an undersea journey in future blog posts. Here, we chose to mix and match some of our favorite pieces–including hair from Boudoir. The strands float wildly around your face, creating a stunning underwater effect.
