I have a restless spirit.  The need to roam and explore this world is in my soul.  Author Unknown

Esper Region on Bellisseria

April 16th of this year I was able to snag a traditional home on the new continent Bellisseria.  A few weeks later, my alt was fortunate enough to grab a houseboat on the Double Region.  Both houses are included in the Parade of Homes Tour on Bellisseria.

I have had a Linden Home since day 2 of my existence in Second Life.  When there are restarts or when Petit Lac Des Cygne is open to the public I have always had a place I can go to.

My Home “Outer Banks” on Double Region

I am pondering releasing the traditional as it is the ability to rez my watercraft right outside my door that appealed to me.  The houseboat view is just about as perfect one can get on the water, and the region is quiet and lag free with only seven other houseboats in the area.

Time here on Bellisseria is spent exploring by bike, on horseback, roller skating, and either by powerboat or sailboat.  I’m a little rusty on the latter but improving.  It’s been fun exploring this beautiful continent.  Linden Labs, along with the moles, should be proud of what they are creating.  No, it’s not complete yet, but what is here will keep you busy for weeks.

Recently I went wandering by bike and took a few snaps on my exploration.  You don’t have to be a resident of Bellisseria to enjoy the many gardens and park-like settings.  I include a landmark where you can start your own exploration of this new continent here.  Maybe you will decide to have a home away from home here soon.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥

It is only with the heart that one can see clearly, for the most essential things are invisible to the eye.”
― Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling

The Wild Swan6b

Photographed at Petit Lac Des Cygne “Little Swan Lake”

Now, why did I choose a quote from The Ugly Duckling instead of The Wild Swans?  Mainly because there wasn’t a quote to be found from the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale that I love so much.  Not one that coordinated with the above photo anyway.

I continue to read my beloved fairytales to my grandchildren.  Many would say they don’t translate well in these modern times.  Actually, I dare to disagree.  I learned patience, perseverance, and that sometimes silence is golden from reading The Wild Swans, and these are qualities I want to pass to my grandchildren, modern society be hanged.

I always dreamed that Disney would make a movie of my favorite fairytale one day.  I no longer want that as they would just change the storyline so much that it would be unrecognizable, and I am a Disney fan.  If you care to read my favorite fairytale, you can find it here.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have over the years.  Be kind to one another.  TWMA♥
