This old plane came to an unfortunate end at this popular spot, but do you know where it is?

Nice shot! I was used to seeing this from the air, so it took me a while to find - Sirens Isle in the Blake Sea!

This is a threefer - an historic flatboat for the boat enthusiasts, a monorail for the train enthusiasts, and a passport stamp location for those Bellissereans who are collecting them. While I was there I saw both a yavapod boat and a yellow boat go by. Where am I?

That is a very beautiful picture of the VRC Ferry Terminal at Tuliptree. The light in it is lovely.

I'm sorry - I couldn't find it and now I have sand in my shoes from all the searching.

Not sure how to give an additional clue.... but maybe moving on to an island 3 regions away will help... This too is a mole build:

It has some cute little inhabitants...

If you find this island the earlier location should be easier to find.

This fun ground level pool is a relatively recent addition to a Region that has seen continuous use since the earliest days of SL history.Snapshot_179.thumb.jpg.12928d15b32d68f917ffdd57390710c2.jpg

Snapshot_180.thumb.jpg.29ded7715c534e607be6d46296eba225.jpg

Because the pool is only 4 years old maybe this from 2008 on the same region will help

I'm on Route 9, between a cake shop, a graveyard, and a port to a fabulous art gallery. Where am I?

(This avatar needs to be unbounced,,,,)

I had to beat the spellchecker with a stick to get it to accept 'unbounced' instead of 'unbounded'

It took me a while to find it, but eventually I did in Bennafield. Snarky Cakes, The graveyard of unfortunate deaths and the Ramshackle Gallery. What a quirky odd little place. I love it!

This still seems to be functional and busy place. To take my photo I had to derender the crowd.

Anyway this Hippo Sculpture looks distinctive and there is a hand stand pose on it, but do you know where it is?

Great outfit!

This is the Scenic Ambat Infohub by Osprey Therian. I wasn't able to get a photo of my avatar doing a handstand because someone else was standing there.

Statue of Slider Jerusalem, Hard-hitting Hippo Journalist of the Future, by Altruima Linden. This is in an obscure InfoHub in Sansara not far from the Sea of Fables. Where am I?

Note: This "WTH is?" thread inspired my "Where in Second Life is this place?" exhibit for SL18B. I have moved some of the exhibit to the Moleworks floor of my Tourist Information Center, if anyone wants to see how many places they can identify. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mocha/19/192/2988

So many more places for me to explore, thank you! ☺️

It is at the old Warmouth Info Hub, it won't let me set home there - so no longer active one.. but it is at least preserved along with the glorious Hippo.

Fun location and interesting to read about the history of the Hippos and their significance :)

This is a rather horrific build from Musical Misty Mole, like something from a Grimm fairytale.

Snapshot_186.thumb.jpg.c0dff08cb1ad947ecfcb10281054c8b6.jpg

It seems to date back to October\November 2011.

Do you know where it is?

Well done! I was worried it would be too obscure

Your turn to post a photo to get us exploring

I finally made it on stage, this was my solo! If I get booed they will probably throw me in jail, if not, I will have to buy a round of drinks in the saloon! I hitched my wagon up by an old water tower.

Where am I?

PS I went through the first 16 pages on this thread and didn't see this place, so hope I'm not repeating a previous post.
