Rosemist Isle

Quiet Sanctuary ... for Meeroos?

Quiet Sanctuary … for Meeroos?

If you like the idea of an escape that has a touch of the mystical and magical, then you’ll love Rosemist Isle. I like those things myself, and I love finding hidden places that the SIM creator has made an effort with, just for your entertainment. You’ll find those in Rosemist Isle too.

I haven’t taken pictures in the more hidden spots so you can discover them for yourself, and you certainly should. The more you wander here, the more you’ll find – and changing windlights will give you a whole different outlook in this SIM, maybe more so than others.

Some of the highlights are a standing stone ring; a galleon; some hidden “caves” and a piano and concert area. That’s not all. You’ll find lovely places for romance and some fun places to sit even if you are on your own. The landscaping is gorgeous and the sense of escapism to a realm that’s something special is all here. This is not the biggest place you’ll visit in SL, but there’s a lot packed cleverly and thoughtfully into its area. Highly recommended.

Imaginaria

Bridge for Sighs

Bridge for Sighs

If you like romance and natural beauty, then you’ll like Imaginaria. From the old-world lighthouse where you land to the countless bridges, seating, nooks and crannies all around the SIM, you’ll find somewhere to snuggle your sweetie. Each possible seating location is well thought out with a surprising variety of sits for both singles and couples, so you can find that perfect pose if you like photography – as well as find the perfect pose for a sunset kiss.

The vistas are stunning. You will find landscapes to test your SL lens and little corners for close-ups that will make you smile. If it is possible for a virtual location to have an ambience you can feel, then Imaginaria has one that’s light, welcoming and romantic as well as peaceful.

Find a great windlight even if you are only exploring and watch the sea sparkle in the distance as you wander through the lush grass and flowers. Change the world to gold and watch as a beautiful place is transformed into something quite different, but still beautiful – or add moonlight and see it again, totally different.

SL is escapism and I would recommend Imaginaria as a great place to escape – as well as a great place to get out your SL camera, play with your settings and fill up your Flickr or blog.

Paradiso

Paradiso LZ

Landing Zone

If you’ve seen my Flickr, you’ll know I do love this SIM (there are a couple more pictures on there, too). It’s so beautiful, even though some of the beauty comes from broken things. A whole lot comes from flowers, though .. if you’ve got hayfever, this probably isn’t somewhere you’ll want to visit.

When you land (unless it’s changed again) you’ll see an umbrella and in front of you a white door, standing all on its own. The door will take you to another world, and I suggest you go through it before you become entranced by the rest of the SIM and forget to look. Oh, you may well end up forgetting the rest of the SIM if you go through, too – so pick your poison.

The Grotto

The Grotto

 

Through the doorway is the most incredible grotto, full of water that’s reminiscent of places such as the Carribean and the Maldives. Hey, I’ve seen pictures, I know what they look like from those! There are statues and flowers and trees and gazebos and flowers and floating islands and flowers. Did I mention flowers? You can get an idea of scale by looking at the picture. The arrow is, not surprisingly, pointing to me. I’m short, but I’m not a Petite so …

When you’re done soaking up the beauty through the door, come back out and wander the sea. Little islands with strange statues and seating, half-ruined houses … all manner of wonderful things to explore and the whole SIM is an SL Photographer’s dream.

Oh, in case you wondered, you can walk on water at Paradiso. If nothing else, visit Paradiso to impress your friends without the aid of a HUD.
