I logged in right after getting home from work to catch at least part of Pirate DJ Sophia’s set! Sorry I missed the Linden Werewolf though. 😔

I hate to admit it, but much of the sea floor around Bellisseria is dead boring. That's hard news for a mermaid to deliver, but it's true.  Vast areas of the sea bottom are nothing but gently rolling sand, broken by occasional hillock or a monstrously deep pit like this one near Porthole.


There's hardly even a bit of kelp in most places.  I start to get hopeful when I see rocks, usually fairly close to shore.  I swim between pinnacles and peer around tight corners, imagining that I am playing tag with the Bellisserian Sea Monster (whom none of us as ever seen -- not even a mermaid).


That doesn't mean that the monster doesn't exist, of course, just that he (or she? ) is either very shy or living in some part of the Bellisserian seas where few of us ever go.


The rocks are fun to explore in any case.  I've seen some very dramatic outcrops.


For me, the main attraction around rocks is plant life like some of the fanciful glowing flowers that grow in spots along the east coast ...


and some remarkable garbage that mariners have tossed overboard.  There are enough crates and barrels to stock a good sized shop, if some enterprising Bellisserian could figure a way to drag them to land.


There's also a surprising amount of rum and other fortified ... um... beverages, sometimes in unbelievably large bottles.


Still, as I said, these highlights are the exceptions, rare gems in the otherwise unremarkable sea floor.  As a dedicated explorer, I will continue to report what I find, and will keep an eye open for that elusive monster, but don't expect to see breaking news often.  The sea is a lonely place.

Wait .... what's that deep rumbling sound .... ?

For curious mermaids like @Rolig Loon I'd abvise to take a swim around the Pickle's coast near Picards Wharf . ;)

Thank you, Leora. 😉 Picard's Wharf is already a favorite region.  It's where the gigantic mermaid grotto is (and it's a great name for a region if you are a Star Trek TNG fan).  I started from there and moved to the Pickle coast when I started swimming upstream last week to reach River Run. There's a lot to see along that coast, and I'm sure the moles will add more as they develop the rest of Pickle Island.  It's a beautiful part of Bellisseria.😎

@Leora Jacobus suggested yesterday that I ought to explore more along the coast of Pickle Island. It was a great idea. I already knew quite a bit about the regions near Picards Wharf, because that's where the big mermaid grotto is, but I had only made a short trip farther north. So, I packed an anchovy sandwich and headed for Myopia Falls, just across the sound from the north coast of Pickle Island. (By the way, isn't Myopia Falls a great name? 😄  I really need to spend time there too.)


Even from a distance, I can see that the north coast of Pickle Island is rockier than the coast at Myopia Falls. It looks much more rugged. The channel in this part of the sound is not wide at all, but it's nice and deep. I headed off, eager to see what's on the other side ...


Well, rocks.   And a little green fish. When I surfaced to take a look around, I was truly impressed. See how the homes are all set close to the shore and high enough to get a panoramic view. These are upscale homes, for sure.


This is a beautiful shoreline! Look at the size of those rocks, and all the trees!  I like the gnarly ones like this ... is it a cypress?  (I'm not good at tree identification.  Mermaids don't see many trees close up.)


Here's the view back from Pantelleria toward the sandy beaches of Myopia Falls. I can just imagine some happy Bellisserian neighborhood picnic in this little park, people sunning themselves under the date palms, fishing off of the rocks, watching sailboats go by ....  It's not all rocky here, though.  There are some lovely beaches along the shore toward Alala.


Speaking of sunning .... mermaids don't usually go in for sunbathing (bad for the skin) but I had to try this spot out. It's relaxing in its own way, I guess, as long as you don't spend too much time out of the water. I can see how land dwellers could get used to this.


Here's another view, just slightly farther along.  The beach is wide and gentle.  This would be a fine place to launch a one-person sailboat or a paddleboard.


Just across the channel, there's a narrow barrier island and a string of houseboat slips, with more of those lovely gnarly trees. I didn't see any local homeowners outside as I stopped by for a look, but I bet this little beach is popular on weekends.


I only traveled as far as Cadhaire this time.  There were just too many things to see, and I was getting hungry.  I seemed to have lost that anchovy sandwich somewhere.  That's one of the drawbacks of having no pockets.  Anyway, thank you, @Leora Jacobus, for having piqued my curiosity. I will be back to travel farther along, especially as the moles open up more of the northeast coast.  Pickle Island has some beautiful coastline.

Put out some goodies for all you Bellisserian travelers. 🤤🥰

Feel free to stop and warm up with some hot apple cider, or hot chocolate. There's also some fresh baked pumpkin pie waiting for you. 🎃🥧

I've been waiting to welcome in Autumn for months since it is my favorite time of year! Edi and I are spending our days decorating with rich colors to welcome the Autumn Season into our little house while hubby is at work. We just barely started the last few days, but slowly the vibrant colors are setting in! ;)

In many of the regions, it looks like this is going to be the Winchester of the Campers/Trailers - and in this color scheme even:


I'm not sure - though you may be on to something. Most in Lake Tatakaka (laughs, so easy to remember that name!) are still styled in whatever the default was. For myself, I've chosen the smaller version of this style (I forget what it's called) with similar color scheme, other than blue for the rooftop and brass for the metals. :D I plan to post some pix once I have most of the decorating done. Which is a long, carefully-crafted, extremely detailed, delicate operation. Because HOME!

Update on my main house. Built a big ol' porch to further that southern feel. Concrete floor but hey.. I like the concrete flooring.


Now on to figuring out how to spruce it up a bit within 20 LI.

I haven't put this much thought or effort into decorating my own home for years because, well... rarely spend time there and whatnot. But this! I am so excited for my new LL Homes Camper. So this is what I did, it's not as detailed or fancy as most I see, but, hey, IT'S HOME!!! A car rezzer and horse rezzer for all to enjoy, as well!

Oh, and requisite poster of @Patch Linden there in the dark. Now to just find the right painting for that last wall. :D
