Great Second Life Destatinations: Dawn of Radiance Summer Edition



Second Life residents who love beautiful inworld locations were quite saddened when Silvermoon Fairey recently announced that she would be closing her beautiful Dawn of Radiance sim in May 2014. This was a favorite location of photographer, bloggers, and everyone who loves gorgeous natural destinations.

Silvermoon has been able to reopen Dawn of Radiance due to an unexpected and generous gift which you can read about over at her Flickr page.   The new location is similar to past iterations, most notably the Spring 2014 version which I photographed in April-  but different. I found the new setting to be more outwards facing and more conscious of it's coastal setting. I highly recommend you visit whether for a first time, or to say hello to an old destination which you thought was lost but is now back.

Great Second Life Destinations: Ocean Waves Sing a Lullabye at the Sounds of Silence


I am not sure what it was about the Sound of Silence that I found so restful and relaxing. The gentle ocean waves left a hypnotic rhythm on the cost -- where just a hint of morning fog remained. The plant and animal life were in harmony with this gorgeous natural setting. Whatever it was, The Sounds of Silence has to be one of the most enchanting destinations ever in Second Life, and is highly recommended for a visit. Please be aware that this is a residential homestead and respect the privacy of the inhabitants.

Great Second Life Destinations: The Ocean Pointe Region- Canada In Second Life


Ocean Pointe is a multi-sim region which depicts a waterfront town in Canada, either on one of the Great Lakes or the Atlantic or Pacific Seaboards. There is much to see here are great detail; in addition several nice houses on lush landscaped plots are available for rental -- I show two large houses here. I was very impressed with the "touches" in Ocean Pointe such as the Canadian Rock n Roll Museum with the giant guitar outside, and the old fashioned interior of the store for Sam the Record Man which was a fixture in Canada a generation ago.





My only suggestion to the owners is that they do something about making the sign textures more realistic by weathering them and perhaps making them smaller -- better signage would make a good destination even better. I enjoyed my visit and look forward to going back, especially in a few weeks when the fall foliage comes out. I highly recommend you visit this great addition to Second Life.
