I will be on holiday for the next couple of weeks, sunning myself in the Caribbean. I can’t wait to go, I can’t wait to leave behind what is turning out to be quite a damp, rainy English summer. Ever the optimists us Brits still have high hopes that the weather will eventually settle down and we will finally see some proper sunshine in what is euphemistically called ‘summer’ on this side of the Atlantic.
The UK weather forecasters (normally a group of professionals as accurate as seaside psychics) have promised us a 2 week heatwave which would be most welcome. However I can’t wait any longer and we are heading off somewhere hot and lush, with turquoise seas and giant palms. Whilst away I will be crossing everything in the hope that the heatwave waits for our return from Barbados. I can already hear the gentle rustle of palm trees as I write, smell the fresh salty sea water lapping against the shore and hear the satisfying clink of cocktail glasses as we head back to the beach.
So to celebrate my imminent travels I have been exploring several of SL’s airports and aerodromes. I finally pitched up at St Martin’s which seemed to be quiet enough for taking pictures and very scenic. It is part of the Sailor’s Cove sailing sims which are amongst SL’s finest and longest running communities. I love sailing sims and have spent many a happy time there with friends just sailing about and stumbling across some great places. Most sailing sims have strict rules on what you can build, behaviours and landscaping which all goes to creating sought after places to live and great places to hang out.
Other sailing mega regions such as Blake’s Sea are truly gigantic, and Blake’s I think has around 180 sims and they are great way to spend time with friends. I eventually chose St Martins as a virtual way of getting ready for my RL vacation and it was good fun visiting the sim as it has been well landscaped, with marinas, cafes and of course working sea planes.
So, the photos are all done, my bags are packed and in a few days I will be sat on a powdery beach somewhere, soaking up the sun. As usual, after a few days I will start to plan my new life as the owner of a funky beach bar so that I won’t have to come back! Now….where did I put my passport…..
A Brief Note For Customers
Although I will be out of the UK, I always, always travel internet ready, otherwise I start having withdrawal symptoms and I like to know what’s going on. So, if you do have any questions or something you need help with please get in touch via the usual channels and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I will be logging in but not as much so please be patient over the next few weeks as it might be a struggle to stir myself from the beach before sundown : )

Thanks Lana….. We are!
You’re welcome ^ ^
Hey, I just came by following another link and was curious what you are up to-))
I once went to St. Martin and it was wonderful!! I did a scuba diving lesson thing with one kinda deep dive [20 ft I think…lol].
Later I got to go to Cozumel which was also quite nice. I bet you had a wonderful time-))
Hey Min, nice to hear from you!
We had a great time thank you, we’ve come back to a typical British summer, cold, wet and rainy!!
I’m not up to anything as such, I’ve created a few new bits of decor for my SL store and and still working on a new manor house for SL which I started 4 months ago : (( !!!
I’ve not done much with Kitely as I sort of lost the will to live with all the work that needed doing to set things up. A couple of Kitely cottages are nearly ready so must get on with those!
I was remembering I did this wonderful snorkeling excursion when in Cozumel…over coral and such and the water was sooooo clear!!
Yea, it is very hard to get all the things set up in new grids…the good thing about Kitely is once done you can save it all to a file on your own computer and the market appears to be doing well and ppl are selling out to the rest of the hypergated Meta…I just think it’s a cool thing.
But hmmm….I wonder if you are aware of soas? http://simonastick.com/ with that you can work on your own computer without interferance and in your own pace….then you can teach yourself [there are tons of places to help as well as the Kitely forums] to save the entire region as an OAR, with everything in it including the terrain and whatever you placed out there, then you can load that into Kitely [or in other places no need to make it more complicated by getting into all that…lol]. So all your content would then be in kitely to just do the MP.
You could also consider creating things for export sale [usually at a higher price and in real money] and then the more “important” things could just be sold in Kitely.
Anywho..have fun and be well-))
Well I use a Mac so SOS doesn’t work as far as I know. The main issues are time and the differences in physics which I discovered by accident. I will get there…eventually! Thanks for the tips.
Welcome…I really didn’t intend on talking about Kitely…lol…oh well-)) tc
