A thread in General discussions has reminded me of a game we used to play on one of the sailing forums. Basically the idea is that someone posts a photo of themselves somewhere recognisable in SL

I believe that is the lighthouse in Gaeta, Lastness Region in the Coastal Waterway 214,104,22?   Now, is anyone brilliant enough to figure out where this is? (The clue is in the question.)

Aethelwine, you were at Brenner enjoying the dinosaurs created by Torley Linden.

I think the stone-paved routes like that are fairly common on all parts of the Atoll (the various Mole-built Routes). If no one finds it and another clue is needed, I will come up with one. :) 

I started off looking on the Atoll but every road I went to that wasn't tarmac didn't have that edging, so I looked at all the other continents before coming back after your clue.

I deserve a rest after all that hunting. For some reason it never occurred to me it might be a LDPW build. Nice find.

Oops, sorry! I think I've only been showing Mole builds, so didn't think to specify that this was one. I'll try to remember to mention one way or the other. :)

No worries, I don't think telling me it was a mole build would have made it easier. I was just surprised is all I meant

Another mole build, this is an undersea Botanical garden. But where am I?

This is the Ciuacoatl Undersea Botanical Garden in Ciuacoatl. 197/220/1. This is a lovely build by Abnor Mole. There is a diving equipment giver just inside the outer door.

This Isle was home to a God thrown from the heavens after his parents saw that he was imperfect. He excelled in the skills of fire, metalworking, stone masonry, and sculpture and became their patron god after he was readmitted to Olympus. There is little on this barren land but a shelter with a fire and blacksmith's tools; however, on one edge of the island there are the ruins of a temple and a single light beam shining down. Where am I?

Added another clue. Playing with environments, unfortunately I could not find one named "Fables".

I know you like your caves, Rufferta... I have found a nice little spot to relax and watch the boats go by here:

But you know that feeling you have when you think someone is watching you?

Where am I?

Mmm maybe a clue is needed...

Well when I said a good place to view boats, that was not just because of the vantage point but also because the area is so popular with sailors.

Another view:

At this location Michael Linden has made a nice hotel build,

Snapshot_055.thumb.jpg.a2dc5ff29026c2afdee5ec15c06abc0a.jpg

With pleasant gardens

humorous adorable rats in the kitchen

but it hides a dark secret in the basement... You might have wondered where all the spiders come from? Here is a giant spider egg hatching if you touch it.

Where is this hotel with its dark secret...

I believe that's at Shamon, next to Zebrasil Hub there's a nice collection of boats around the property

Where might this island be?

WhereIsThis6.thumb.jpg.d0c7c1a2a5eda709b322323076e6a59c.jpg

It is Pledder beach, between Le Bar De La Marine and the Seychelles. A handy rezz spot for anyone that has had a rough journey up from Ahab's Haunt.

Info Hub at some place that starts with H, I used to have an art museum nearby.  Can't remember the region name off-hand, but it's in Northern Corsica, I think.  I'll have to check the World Map IF THEY EVER F%#@ING FIX IT.

No wait, I've got a landmark to my old place, so...HYANNISPORT!!!  THAT'S what it was called!

Edit:  Every parcel nearby has changed, save for Bee's rental (my alt lived there), and the adboard on route 7.  Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

I guess the neighborhood started going downhill after somebody used the Edit Terrain feature to carve her initials into the land before abandoning it.  Who would do such a thing?

Where is this, and what is it?

Finally found it! Beatrice 149/178/34 in Nautilus. This is Route 12 - there is another U-turn on the other end, I think.
