2) A World of Nature & Beauty – Calas Galadhon
I want to take you on a trip to a place of nature and beauty unlike any other place in Second Life. It is a group of eleven sims, but the landing point is Calas Galadhon sim (a named derived from Tolkien). The sims are a gift to all of us in Second Life by their creators, Truck Meredith and Tymus Tenk.
It is a place you go to spend hours strolling, walking, ballooning, boating and hiking; there’s even scuba diving. Yesterday I returned to this place with my camera and a couple of hours of time. I’ve chosen only four photos from the hundred I shot and even if I were to post the hundred it wouldn’t begin to scratch the surface off all you’ll find, all you’ll discover and delight in.
I began my trip in a place that had great significance to me in the past, a place you can easily find peace and serenity. This is a place where I once fell in love and while I’ll talk about that more in another series, I think you’ll see how vulnerable you’d be to falling in love in these surroundings.
This little tour I’ve given you is just a glimpse of this unique world. Tymus is a landscaper in real life and with his partner, Truck, the two have built regions so realistic I assure you, you’ll be enchanted.
I want to encourage you to make the leap across space and time to your second life, and visit this world. And by the way, there is more to this region than exploring, there are three nightclubs with regular entertainment schedules. So, checkout their website.
If you can’t make it to Second Life, then I have a few more photos posted in one of my Flickr sets. And if you’d like to peek into my personal life experiences at Calas (I’m pretty sure I sanitized it… heh), checkout posts in the orignal Being Yordie Sands blog.
