365 days of SL, day 102:

porsupah's been prodding me to make these "365 days of SL" entries public for a while, so I'm giving this a try now. :) The previous ones (as you can see, this is day 102) aren't public yet, but I may eventually change that. Or alternatively, I may make this one non-public; we'll see.

In any case, it's been a while since I've had a screenshot from Jeogeot Bay (the last one's from day 73), and I've never actually shown this particular spot (although you can see it in the background on day 41, so here's a picture of Lordshore Lookout Point, a nice little spot overlooking Route 9, Lordshore Bridge, and Jeogeot Bay. There's a picnic table there (which we're sitting at); you can't rez things there, but there's a rez zone back where the wooden construction meets Route 9 (see day 33), so presumably you could rez your picnic basket there and move it to the table. :) (EDIT: you actually can rez objects at the picnic table, too; I don't know why it didn't work last night.)

We used to sit here quite a lot; it's a nice spot, not secluded but still quite private by virtue of hardly anybody ever dropping by except for the ubiquitious pods (mentioned and graced with a small rant en passant on day 44), and (as you can see) with a good view — at least if you crank up your view distance. Jeogeot Bay is quite big.

Speaking of which, you may notice the the land on the opposite side in the background looks pretty empty. I'm not sure if it genuinely is or if it's just too far away; perhaps whatever's on there also just hadn't rezzed yet, although my money's not on that. It's an unfortunate fact that parts of the mainland are not nearly as developed as they should rightfully be.

Oh yeah, and that island in the background? That's the volcano island in Jeogeot Bay, already seen on day 73, day 69 and day 31.

And BTW, if you've read all this, here's a bonus screenshot, too:

This is one I took before the above one; I originally wanted to post this, but then went decided that it didn't really show what the Lookout Point really feels like. That said, I still like it — it feels more real, in a way, so you're getting it as a bonus.

Location: Lordshore (56, 64, 54) (Route 9 Lookout Point and Rez Zone)

Yay for public entries! ^_^ Especially with regard to SL - I used to follow a few good weblogs that reported on interesting, scenic, or fun places to visit, but they all dropped by the wayside over time, with seemingly none coming along to replace them.

You might even consider poking some life into secondlife_furs sometime, if there's any furry-relevant news (or gossip =:) to convey. There must be a lot of happenings in the furry side of SL that I never even hear of, whether av release parties, special events, or just expansion or contraction in the furry estates.

I wonder why the table would be no-rez? Seems like the ideal spot to be thus.

Do planes have genders? I should enquire sometime. ^_^

*nods* Well, I hope this series will continue to bring news of interesting, scenic or fun places — although that's not the sole intention, of course. Part of it is showcasing places, but the primary idea is to just provide a slice-of-(second)-life, a glimpse into the going-ons and daily happenings over the course of a year.

But I want to make it interesting, too, and not just post another "we sat around and talked" screenshot every day, and that's one reason why I'm visiting places. Another is that I like checking out places and exploring a little myself; and of course I like talking about SL in general. I know there's people on my friends list who read my posts and don't play SL, and I like to imagine that they find these interesting (as opposed to skipping over them because they don't play SL in the first place).

Heh, I may check out secondlife_furs! I've joined for now, at least; maybe once there's a sufficient number of public entries, I'll plug this project there. Maybe. :)

And yeah, you'd think the table'd be a good spot for a small rez zone, right? In fact, I'm pretty sure it used to be; or maybe I'm thinking of another picnic table somewhere... I'll have to look into that. EDIT: OK, it turns out you can rez objects there. I don't know why it didn't work last night, although I distinctly remember that it didn't when I tried. A random glitch, perhaps.

I'm pretty sure planes have genders, too. :)
