Kingdom of Sand

A few weeks ago I was catching up with a friend in SL. We’d not talked in awhile, had a lot of talking to do. While that occurred, I made the acquaintance of someone who is now on my friends list as well. This friend is rather shy, so I’ll go back to my early habit of identifying people with an initial. “B” in this case. /me laughs. For those of you who remember X, Y and Z, this is different. *grin*

B offered to take me for a ride. We found a grassy area that was not too laggy. We took a few spins about the place, then B suggested we go to Kingdom of Sand. This is a role-playing sim, so I needed to get a guest pass and be coached a bit. At some point along the way I decided that my current outfit needed to be updated to something more appropriate. 🙂

B and I didn’t do much talking. We simply ran up and down the sand dunes, past the oases, around the tents and the city walls. It was wonderful. I adjusted my camera, sat back and enjoyed the ride.

There is no story here, nothing except a recommendation to go to Kingdom of Sand and see the beauty of it. I’d had a lesson from Honour in how to use Windlight (that is another blog post that is half-written). I experimented with Windlight as we drank in the desert air. Sunrise, midday, sunset. Shadows. I really should get out more often and experience more of this.

I hope you enjoy the photos! I have even MORE that I did not post, if you can imagine. They are all up on my Flickr account, *grin*, should you wish to see more.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
