This one is just off one of the main road routes. It's a 25m tall former lighthouse and has a bit of a community park surrounding it.

Here we see why being a lighthouse keeper in the days before electricity was a bit of a hazard...

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.

Atolle Pointe Lighthouse in Rivulet. I had seen it before but hadn't noticed the fire damage on the top.

Here's an enchanted bit of road built by Vanity Mole in 2009. There is a cobblestone road, fountain, and fireflies. Where am I?

Secret Rez Zone? I was following a boardwalk made by Alberto Linden in 2005, when it suddenly narrowed to half its width. A little further on it turned into a line of large stones, then bare dirt. I turned on 'show property lines' to get a better view and followed the easement underwater, where it resurfaced on a raised parcel of land and was now labelled "Protected Seaway". The area to the bottom right of the picture is labelled "Rez Zone" and is partly on land, partly on water.  There are no signs or anything to identify it as a rez zone, though. You can see an Infohub on the distance. Where am I?

I have gone back to the birth place of sailing in Secondlife. 

Don't expect to sail far from here though...

In the background you can just about see some tell tale parts of an unusual old airport, that caters not just for aeroplanes but airships as well.

The founders of that airport look as eccentric as their build.

But where is the start of SL sailing, and where am I?

You are in Gray Region, Home of the Flying Tako Sailboat, and the amazing Kazenojin Airport with its many floors. I found Kanker Greenacre's Tako Sailboat area first, but it took me forever to find the Lounge in the Kazenojin Tower at Gray 165/144/46 where the portraits of Goodwill Epoch, Admiral Shijuro Romulus, Admiral Realtime Rogers, Admiral Nifty Yamamoto, and Captain Gaudeon Wu were. A great find!

There is a new Region in Bellisseria, along the Continent-to-Continent channel, which hasn't even been named yet, but you can surf there! You can see the stilt homes on the horizon.  I tried to get a shot of my avatar actually catching a wave, but this is the best I can do...Where am I?

Okay rather than see things die... I am up a well known group of trees over 100m up in the air... but where am I?

Luskwood Forest in Perry - 73/191/112.  I should have guessed by your avatar....:( . Right now there is a group having a party over at the gigantic tree - I'll try to come back when no one is here and explore the public areas.

OK, if you've ever driven down Route 8 in Satori, you've probably seen this wonderful tourist trap. You can buy souvenirs, take photos, and even play with gravity. Where am I?

Not so far distant... I have come across a private Toll road... but it is worth it! Snapshot_128.thumb.jpg.6df248dff33203d5cb24cddcd2c030de.jpg

But where am I?

I just flew the length of Patrick Rommel's road in Satori and I'm amazed!  It runs from Route 8B to Route 8 with mostly abandoned land on both sides.  The tollgate is at Troepolsky 90/250/61. The map identifies it as Route 8z. A great road - I sure hope the Lindens are not charging the identified land owner tier for what is a great asset to the Mainland.
