Boat party in the middle of Calm Waves

Seal Point_009.jpg

I saw you there. :) Though I was on my sailboard and so a little underdressed to pop aboard... or you all were overdressed for being in the middle of the sea!

Much as I love exploring as a mermaid, today felt like a day to wander along the land side of the coastline.  I started at Hartnell and made my way south, staying on sand as much as I could, to make it easier for the horse.  There weren't many people outside, which is a shame.  It was a beautiful day.

I'm not the first one to discover this beautiful mermaid hideaway on the seafloor.  It's HUGE!  We could have a ball in here.  It's in a SSPE region that is still being developed, so I'm not sure whether everything's done yet, but here's a glimpse for anyone who's curious ...

That's what I thought when I found it.. Literally a ball (or any underwater event) It could be like a theme party spot for all things that swim. So much fun!

Rolling Restarts on Bellisseria

Those few minutes when you have beach front property and a gorgeous sunrise.

When the neighborhood returns, its still a beautiful morning, only like Bellisseria can offer.

Thanks, @CoffeeDujour.  I went and looked just now.  It looks like the region's server had a bad day.  As soon as Lindens are awake in the morning, someone will do a rollback to recover all the missing stuff.  Meanwhile, tell anyone you see not to rez anything new tonight, because it will all revert when they do a rollback.

Thank you for your patience.

I was inspired by @Alyona Su's post earlier today, because she described exactly where I and a crowd of daring mermaids gathered yesterday  to begin exploring the gigantic maze under the sea to the west of the Lindens' new Pickle Island.  I had a feeling that I might be able to find the mysterious sunken ship that I have been searching for all summer, and maybe even it's fabulously rich treasure.  And I was right!

1853616924_Mermaid8-21-2019_1.png.7e4be82baecd0879d3e9151bd982edd0.png

There it is!  Well, not exactly a treasure ship, but a very exciting trawler.  That's just the sort of ship that pirates might use to hide the fact that they were carrying booty.  I had a feeling that they had been planning to hide the treasure in the maze when their trawler was somehow damaged and sank to the bottom.  So, I went searching in the maze ...

This was such a lovely day, I decided to wander on dry land instead of heading to the seafloor again right away.  It was a good choice. My horse loved the hills of Amram and Learmont.

307588396_Horse8-22-2019_1.png.bded4711867fa8c4c7e7accc28cf2fab.png

The ground is a little rocky and it's steep in places, but not hard for a sure-footed horse to handle ... 

485083087_Horse8-22-2019_2.png.4399cbe69bf916eb695895c0e776bcca.png

... and there's still plenty of grass to nibble on until you get to the highest points.

1946682713_Horse8-22-2019_3.png.8c6720b3fe991e59372812d1680948d2.png

The view from the top is breathtaking.  Beyond the hills, the land is all undeveloped so far.  Some day, all of that grassland will have houses or trailer camping areas in it, I suppose.  For now, it's a wonderful place to let a horse gallop as fast as he wants, and for me to enjoy the wind in my hair.  I think I'll ride down and do just that.

Took this pic a few minutes ago. Tried to catch the moon in a particular spot just above the bridge but my FPS was in the red and staggering. It's still a lovely view! ❤️

The moles have designed Bellisseria with parks and gardens in some surprising places.  You're not likely to be aware of them if you teleport from place to place, or even if you fly. When I explore, though, I prefer to do it at ground level.  You see so much more!  Just this morning, for example, I was wandering down a street in Wolfeboro and looked up at this bridge ....

1244331588_Scooter8-23-2019_1.png.f1bfd2d95fad40a5393b5ae911810ce1.png

I got curious about what was up there, so I went looking for an access road.  It turns out not to be a road at all, but a paved path, which starts in Oldridge and runs across much of Wolfeboro.

1632045429_Scooter8-23-2019_2.png.5c5b8196f4334caae81da714fa3f57fb.png

It's not hard to find, but you do have to poke around a bit.  The path is an easy walk (or scooter ride), except for one imposing set of stairs.  My scooter handles them nicely, but a car would be out of the question (which is just as well, if you ask me).

1023613597_Scooter8-23-2019_5.png.53c89f582d9de6930bcf04d623d0950d.png

And once you're up there, the view is lovely.

2144260159_Scooter8-23-2019_3.png.5371115d005bf1f56a41b48aefaff8fe.png

The path is lined with flowering shrubs.  I swear that I could hear birds and squirrels, but maybe that's my vivid imagination,  In any case, it's just where I would expect suburban wildlife.

1830182142_Scooter8-23-2019_4.png.f941b6237b4a8d12ff7158db95544ed7.png

And then you descend along a winding slope, back into the streets of Wolfeboro, leaving the park high behind you, hidden in plain sight ......

Stumbled upon this poor fellow under the sea while wandering around today. 

So close to the treasure, yet so far... 

RIP in peace.

So far, I haven't heard a ground swell of people telling me to please stop posting travelogues, but I really ought to slow down.  I'm just in a fidgety, late summer mood, so I've been exploring a lot recently.  It's hard not to share some of the fun sights I've seen in Bellisseria.

Today, my horse and I wandered up a narrow river in Peachtree, envying homeowners who have parcels perched high on its banks.  It's a deep valley with grassy slopes and large oak trees, hard to explore except with a boat or as a mermaid because there are no paths at water level.  The best you can do is look down from above. Once you get to headwaters, though, you can approach from a small side street that leads down to a cul-de-sac and a quiet pocket beach.

175038762_Peachtree8-25-2019_1.png.d6d0b43b68a85d9cbda4e9ad4deb25fe.png

This is clearly a favorite neighborhood spot, although I didn't see anyone else there this afternoon. Families with small kids have come to play in the sand and sun themselves. Someone made a really good sand castle with just a plastic pail and a cheap shovel.  Maybe the moles could recruit her.

999699879_Peachtree8-25-2019_2.png.83b01c98581c1be0f3dc5e5ce1e57e28.png

My horse was more impressed by the water than the sand, and kept eyeing the tall grass, so I decided to let him graze. I guess sand castles aren't his thing.

2036347321_Peachtree8-25-2019_3.png.2351594d7f012b536108dd838151a933.png

That's fine.  Let him eat grass.  To be honest, I was happy to stop exploring for a while and enjoy the beach.  (Don't ask me where I carried a change of clothing or how I redid my hair on the spur of the moment.  This is SL.  We don't explain mysteries.)

459969401_Peachtree8-25-2019_4.png.0cc04a86762b646631c773586b517a00.png

The water is lovely cool, but I should warn that there's a steep dropoff not far from shore.  Keep the kids close. Or maybe leave them at home and relax all by yourself.  

1906037689_Peachtree8-25-2019_5.png.9da4a88780659abe0768b03da4655f11.png

Me?  I don't need kids anyway.  I've got a horse. .... somewhere.
