A lovely place to sit back and relax with colors  bursting out all over that was a pleasure to visit. The Conservatory is closed now until Spring when everything  starts to blossom among the butterflies and  water sounds. Take  some time and check out this amazing place when it opens again. You will not be disappointed.

        I try to get back to this sim  every so often as it has long been one of my favorites. The founder of the sim does an amazing job at designing and keeping it updated. Often while exploring you will see her , Louise Fran├žoise de Dampierre , the owner out and about. She is very friendly so don't hesitate to say hi to her. Often I go and just sit in the Backdoor club , which is tucked away underground,enjoying the ambiance of the place even when there is no music event going on. The town area has a nice small zoo with a few animals, a quaint little museum and hotel that has a bit of a shady feel to it among the many places of interest to visit. If you are feeling artistic stop  and  help paint a mural on one of the outer walls of a building. Everything is supplied from the paint  to ladder and roller. Don't forget to take in a movie at the old drive in or maybe be a lifeguard for the day .
         As you stroll out of town you will notice an old church on your way to the beach. The lighthouse looms high in the sky next to a ferry that you take to a little island. There are also beach actives like volleyball, sunbathing, and of course visiting the old fish shack. Next to the pier and shack there is  a yacht and airplane that makes great background shots for your photos. I hope you enjoy this sim as much as I have over the years.

Love Story: Season of Joy

    Winter has brought out so many activities at this public land. If you are a photographer wanting to take some great pics  or just looking for a place to enjoy spending time with friends you will find it here. Cuddle spots bring out the romantic side of most people so check those out too. I spent an evening taking in the view of the lighthouse shining brightly welcoming me to the sim. The elf trying his fishing skills on one of the docks saved me a nice little seat next to him where I sat for awhile waiting for him to catch the fish of the day. The boats docked there were perfect for photos so of course I did snap a few shots of them. From there I wandered over to the pond to do a little ice skating with more elves who seemed to be having a lot of fun before they headed over to help out at the Christmas Tree Farm. My next adventure was making snow angles with a friendly elf who was being as lazy as I was. I got the impression he liked to spend a lot of time there playing in the snow :) .
     Take some time to try out the ski lift which I decided not to do because of my fear of heights, yes even in SL my  RL fear has carried over lol.  But I did sit on one of the seats before I chickened out but it did  give me a better view of the buildings and grounds below.  Close to the ski lift is a pretty little church with a small seating area behind it in a lovely building that is  perfect for  collecting your thoughts. The main street has stores for shopping along with dining areas and  if you look  up in the sky you may spot Santa and his reindeer preparing for his big trip. I heard he welcomes passengers who like to cuddle.

     If you join the sim's group , Isle of Love story, you can rez a few items there but please clean up after yourself when you are done.  I noticed on the info card that you can receive while there that the owner of the sim Daisy Kwon designs several themed sims a year and if you are in the group  you will always  be kept up to date with new developments. Thank you to the designers who share their love of SL with us so we can also enjoy what they see with their eyes.

There is a Flickr page for adding your pics of Love Story that you can find here :
