Sailing in the Air

I love to sail. I haven’t done much lately (well, actually Bamboo and I went sailing early one morning last week) but I do enjoy it. So when a friend invited me to sail in his new ship, I was delighted. Except…. *grin* …. his new ship is an AIR ship, and the invite was to sail in the skies above the water. And above the land.

I got to Grace O’clock the other night, which is always a dual pleasure. The joy of hearing Grace sing combined with seeing so many friends makes for a wonderful time. One of the attendees was my friend Lalo Telling. Lalo has a great blog, where he chronicles SecondLife history as well as adventures in building in SL and InWorldz. He and his partner Alisa Falconvale have great buildings for sale at Falconvale Fine Prefabs in InWorldz. Recently he got a wonderful new steampunk airship. Steampunk is another fave of mine (oh let’s be real – who DOESN’T like steampunk, right???) so I wheedled and whined for a ride, which Lalo offered graciously.

The airship is the Aer Viator, a steampunk airship. It’s made by the Bondar-Foehammer Aerosteam Company in SL. It has fun sound effects, neat dials and is VERY good-looking. It also handles sim crossings like a champ. I felt a bit of a shimmer but that was it. (When I think how I crashed and crashed on my motorcycle for Chestnut’s birthday motorcycle rally….) The ship is only 30 prims, which I think is reasonable and holds 2 passengers in addition to the pilot (pffft. Lalo insisted on being the pilot. I don’t LIKE being in the back seat. Pout. ) It was a great deal of fun. Even better – the Aer Viator is still on an introductory special, so if you hurry, you too can be an Aer Viator Pilot!

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!
