Holmesdale Retreat is a new rental destination with a design that was is reminiscent of the Northern California or Oregon coast. I was reminded of autumn in the Western United States, with deep blue skies of the contrasting with autumnal trees and landscaping. You literally can smell the cool salty ocean air here, and wonder when the calm ocean will turn violent with the first of the winter storms that hit this part of North America in the late November time frame. Second Life has many tropical-themed regions, and it is a nice change when regions which resemble more Northern climes become available for residences. The modern architecture of the homes here, and their gorgeous landscaping, should make this a popular residential region.
All photography was taken with the programmed destination Windlight sky setting which I liked for its cool tones with fit well with the autumnal trees and landscaping.
