Today I had a look around the “Spectacular” section of SL12B. I must say that I love the names of the different areas and I get a kick when they are applied to the roads. For instance, in “Spectacular” you have “Spectacular Roads”. I don’t know about where you live, but where I live “Spectacular Roads” can be a dream in itself.
Dressage in SL
The first place I visited was “Dressage in SL”. Dressage is performed using mesh avatar horses in a Dressage court.
There was nothing going on while I was there but I believe they have some competitions taking place during SL12B. More information on Dressage in SL can be found here.
Next, I was on to “Dreams of Tomorrow” where visitors are urged to move away from the dystopian views that are found in much of the current science fiction and instead dream and work towards a happier tomorrow.
The Lollygaggers exhibit
I then found the exhibit for which I have the most natural affinity -“Lollygaggers SL12B”.
My new job
I found a job,
Having a rest – I may have to burn my clothes after this!
a place to relax, interesting landscaping,
Lollygaggers – plenty of atmosphere
animal friends, modern facilities –
All the news that’s fit to print!
what more could I ask for?
Dragging myself away from “Lollygaggers” I moved on to the “Virtual Ability” plot. For information on Virtual Ability, Inc. click here. Their SL12B exhibit has signs and pictures leading to a “path of dreams”.
Along the path of dreams
The “path of dreams” leads up into the clouds where the visitor is encouraged to think of what their dream is and add it to the dream catcher.
Virtual Ability – the dream catcher
But although this is about dreams, one of the signs at the beginning of the path states that not only are the members of Virtual Ability dreaming,
The dream path – turning dreams to realities
they are working hard to find solutions to problems of accessibility as well.
Double Dragon Academy
Nearby I found an exhibit related to role playing, which is something that many people enjoy in SL. This plot is owned by the Double Dragon Academy, which is the oldest institution in SL for training, testing and certifying knights, rangers, warriors and lancers. More information may be found here.
Taking a break in beautiful and relaxing Windsong Garden
Lastly I visited “Windsong Garden”, a delightful place to relax and recharge. “Windsong Garden” is an enclosed garden which has musical flowers.
When one of the flowers “chimes” it lights up, as can be seen with the yellow tulips
The flowers play in response to the SL wind, so I sat on a bench and enjoyed the peaceful sounds away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the outside the walls.
