Oh I do like to be beside the seaside…

So…its Friday…and I decided that we’d worked SO hard all week blogging and renting homes…that we should take the day off and explore ! I’m glad we did…it was a FUN morning. Rizal has this fantabulous games area…its sort of like an old seaside village. Sweet little shops along the harbour wall…cafes…etc. Steve and I both loved the kite shop! Everything is free…yes everything! The kite shop is on the upper level of the stores..along with…

…the photo shack..a huge maze,and the bestest ever hippo bouncy castle…find your inner child *grins*….wondering why I’m wearing the stars & stripes hat? I won it…and uhm..it emited sparkly bits..gotta love that !

On the lower level of this quaint little place..is the arcade,complete with whack-a-mole that hands out some seriously coolio prizes. I got the hat,shoulder teddy & a huggable mole awww…(which Steve REALLY liked but I wouldn’t give it to him-all prizes are transferable btw yay)

Steve won a pink huggable hippo (which he DID give to me…because I whined a lot) We also purused the gift store..and picked up some awesome tee’s (all free) a few postcards and squillionsss of hats , oh AND a really pretty musical globe…

Found some water cannons and rideable duckies outside…also some swans….Im not sure why LL don’t advertise these places more..its a great “day” out involving no cash but giving lotsss of laughter !

Sail away…

I’ve got a thirst to explore lately..and realised that in all my four and a bit years in SL I have never been to the Blake Seas sims..Ive heard people saying how beautiful they are …but have been quite happily pottering around my own sim’s on whatever water craft I grab out of my inventory. Sooo today I coerced Steve into accompanying me on a voyage of discovery ! Half Hitch looked a likely candidate,it has a small rez area (in the water don’t panic) so I could rez up a boat..and off we went *squeee*…We arrived in the quaint little harbour and mooched about..its very shabby chic..and picteresque…old boats, bouys bobbing in the water..and bright pink beautiful jelly fish dancing around in the sparkling waters below…I was enchanted.

The world would appear to be your oyster once you’re here, we found a free pretty little yacht where we landed (url is below) and after we snooped about the island, we rezzed it up and set off…

We sailed for ages..our little boat bravely navigating around a huge war ship at one point, dropped anchor at a couple of pretty coves and tiny islands along the way..I think we sailed across approx 6 sims with little or no lag and no sim crossing difficulties….it was just sooo relaxing. Check out whats below you, the ocean bottom had many types of plants & sea creatures, I grabbed hold of a sharks fin and swam with it for a few. I also noticed that Half Hitch have daily boat races..forgot to jot down what time of day though, but pop over and you’ll see the signs…grab a boat or rez up your own and have fun!
