Hi all. I have been on an extended “vacation” in real life. I have been on vacation also in Second Life . I set up camp in the Little Yosemite Group camping region and have been enjoying a kayak on the rivers and just relaxing there.
It is a peaceful place where I could set out some of my animals where i do not have the prim room at home, my prairie dog, my birds, some chairs and wine .
My friend came to visit and we had wine and cheese and then went over to a nearby region for dinner. It was all delightful.
I managed to get over to the RFL regions and did walk the track in the Honor Lap for survivors and caretakers. I took a few more fun laps. The installations were all lovely and I dropped in on many of them later.
My favorite region was Survivor. Darkstone Eon created it all based on the story, “The Boy,The Mole, The Fox, and The Horse” by Charlie Mackesy. You can listen to it here if you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81b4i9jQhck . Many words to think about through this children’s book, a lovely modern fable.
It was such a restful region filled with lovely foliage with part of the track running through it. Survivors had a page in a book behind sweet statues of the boy and his companions . Each survivor had a thought on their page for readers to ponder.
After the event Darkstone was so kind to offer the survivor’s page to each person. I got mine.
I also was able to make it to greeter training for the next big event, the SL18B, with Dion Mole. Now I am greeting at the marvelous event! Get a folder ready for all the great gifts donated by builders that will be available. I think I will wait for a while to visit the Shop and Hop. It is too intense there for my laptop right now.
I have been to many of the creations on regions of the birthday event and also attended parties and some of the Meet Lindens, and the Meet the Moles, events in the auditorium. If you missed the meets check them out here . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfIIG1TWxkc
