the bayou…

BlackBayou

Oh, am sure you heard the stories about the Bayou where people get lost and some never make it out alive ~ where the landscape is stark and the waters hold snakes, gators and all sorts of waterfowl ~ a place you don’t wanna go unless you have a guide…that is just what I did was travel to the Black Bayou to discover a land that brings back all those memories for those that have gotten a glimpse maybe from the movies, tv’s or books…

BlackBayou What a great creation and truly love the starkness of the trees, water, and some rather interesting structures that you can only imagine the secrets they hold…really a remarkable place that even has a wooden boardwalk that you can walk around to different locations to get some incredible landscape shots… BlackBayou

Different types of waterfowl that just beg to have their images captured on film so those that really love places to go and explore just remember the Black Bayou and you won’t find any stores to go shopping or cafes to sit and sip your lattes this is truly an amazing place ♥ Did not see any residents wandering around but from the laundry hanging out to some buildings that would fairly pass as houses am sure there are some brave souls that love living down in the Black Bayou♥  Make sure when you go to dress accordingly as this is the Black Bayou with swamps, mosquitos and who knows what ~ ENJOY♥

trick or…

trick or treat?

I decided to take a look at the Destination Guide that SL provides and did the eeny meenie thing to see where I wanted to end up ~ before I tell you about my trip I will say turning my blog into a destination or travel blog am truly finding my niche as they say and honestly with the pressure of having to meet deadlines and doing things on my time frame am back to enjoying SL as it should be♥  After getting back from enjoying the Copperfield Winery I chose a Halloween theme to go/see ~ and followed one of the editor’s choices that was not right at the top ~ landing at Halloween Rock n Shock you are made aware of houses, pumpkins, and a very inviting atmosphere ~ as you walk around to make sure you grab a free trick/treat bag so when you start knocking on doors the candy has someplace to go LOL ~ free treats and they are calorie free as well hehehe ~ once done you need to hop in the pumpkin coach for a tour ♥

RY1

The pumpkin coach takes you on a rather interesting ride around Doll Island just a warning those dolls are very creepy I would keep your hands and feet in during the ride just a warning…

 

RY3

Once you finish with the tour you can hop out and go exploring like seeing that castle in the sky up there it’s not a bad walk lighted by torches so you won’t need a flashlight just giving you another warning that I am horrible at finding my way back out the door so try to remember how you came in as I spent several panic moments trying to find the door for outside ~ lot of spookiness going on that Island of Dolls so please remember I did warn you~ the entire sim is done really well that you will want to spend time walking around as I only covered a portion of what is here~this was just a peek to what RebelYell has in store for you… I am truly hoping that you are enjoying the way the blog is going as I would love comments or suggestions of places to see and hey they don’t all have to be Halloween themed but out of the way that might be interesting and you would like to share ♥  RL is grabbing me the next couple of days for one of my favorite dog sitting customers but will be back on Sunday ♥  Enjoy ~ ooops here is the RIDE hehehe

Wine country…

Winery

Yesterday I received a nice note from the owner of Copperfield Winery to come to see the updated winery and WOW am I so glad that I did as I thought it was really nice before it is absolutely amazing now♥ When you TP in you have this gorgeous horse-drawn carriage awaiting you to take you on a tour of the winery or the wedding venue ~ my suggestion is to take at least one as you can always just stand up and walk around to just the place is immense now with 2 complete sims…All the trees are in full fall splendor showing off a variety of autumn colors making so many photo ops for those that love taking landscapes♥

Winery2

From the layout of the entire winery, there is so much to see that you might have to come back several times to really immerse yourself and feel the full impact of what Copperfield Winery has to offer ~ yes they do have a place where you can pick and stomp your grapes if you truly want to get into the spirit ~ they still have the wine tasting and free bottles for you to enjoy in your own home too♥

Winery1

Looking for a romantic out of the way place to enjoy a dinner with your sweetheart or even plan a first date with someone special~ this is in the wine cellar very private as you see the table is set with candles along with being able to choose a bottle of wine to go with your meal ♥

Winery3

Speaking of romance, Copperfield Winery has expanded to include a gorgeous wedding venue nestled among the trees and flowers with a reception w/tables right next to it ~ If you are looking for a place for your wedding consider speaking to the owners for prices ~ what a simply stunning setting to hold a wedding ♥♥ There is a lot more to discover and enjoy at the Copperfield Winery that I do not want to give everything away just will say you do really have to spend time walking around, following the signage to discover all the nuggets Copperfield Winery has to offer ~ The owner Norivne Copperfield is such a delightful person to chat with along with really making this one of the best wineries in SL you will ever see ♥ Here is your RIDE ~ please enjoy ♥

thank you again to Norivne for inviting me ~ as well to my friends who have reached out to me to share some of their favorite places to go ♥  am also inviting my readers to share a favorite place that you might like to share with others ~ take care

Pumpkin time…

PumpkinPatch

Remember I told you yesterday that I was going to show you there is more to Second Life than just shopping ~ yesterday a friend and I found this out of the way Pumpkin Patch that you can pick your own pumpkins and also carve them too♥ Seriously you can carve them if you want or let the carver surprise you ~ for me that is the fun part picking out pumpkins and seeing what kind of face you can make out of it ~ I chose 3 different kinds of pumpkins smooth, squished and blobby ~ you will have a waiting period to choose another pumpkin but you can spend that time wandering around looking in the store at the creators masks if you want…here is the result and yes my carving is so childish that I just said surprise me hehehe

carved pumpkins

Pretty cool right and they all look different ~ really good variety of different shapes for you to choose ~ seems there will be coming soon 2 more different pumpkin patches and I will try to revisit and give you a look ~ After you have chosen your pumpkin make sure you take a ride on the steam trolley that will ride you around the entire sim and see what else is available ~ the scenery is gorgeous with the fall leaves sporting their gorgeous fall colors ~

enjoying the ride 

There are various places for some great photo ops and not wanting to give it all away but some interesting things to discover on the Sim itself ~ please take time to enjoy this sim and remember to visit Pumpkin Patch and get your share of those pumpkins ♥  Thanks goes to Punkrella Summers for creating this unique idea♥♥  I sent out a notecard to my friends and I love to have your help in sharing with me some of your favorite places to visit please♥ thanks bunches and for all those who do take time to read my blog posts it means so much to me ~ hugzz♥ till next time when I go back to revisit a really nice winery in SL ♥

Major changes…

Lately, I have been very disillusioned with blogging and SL and I spoke to a couple of friends about this ~ several just told me to step back and re-evaluate what makes me happy and go from there ~ thanks to them I am doing just that for several reasons that will remain with me ~ I do love SL and  think if I truly left I would regret it maybe not today but months from now ~ the decision I have made is to go back to what I started blogging about travels in SL ~ the places where you can wear all those fabulous clothes ~ events to attend that could be hunts, dances or just fun things to do ~ I want to be more a destination person as truly those that might be new SL is not just about shopping 24/7 ~ yes I am aware SL does have its own destination guide but some never make it in there due to various reasons ♥  There are some great places to explore, to take pics, to interact with that is what I want to show you…my wish for all those that have supported this blog by clicking on the follow me either by email or just bookmark me that you will continue to read this blog and just maybe I will give you places to explore, to have fun and realize there is more to SL than just shopping♥  As well I appreciate each designer that gave me the opportunity to blog their items and say thank you for understanding my decision ~ means a lot with the kind words I received back ♥

thank you ♥

always me
