Some redeployments in the fleet

Some of the ships of the Wild Fleet have moved to different ports in the last days.

It started when Giz asked me for some naval support at the new Lost Lagoon of Hematite Island.

I moved the Star of Winter there and I think she is contributing to the beauty of the place.

Then , the Hunting Star finally came back to the Beaumont Sea after a long cruise of almost two monts who took her to the celebrations of the Fleet Week and in the northern waters of mainland.

And last but not least, the ships of Task Group 2.2 ( *grin* ), the Fighting Star and the Exploring Star, usually patrolling the high seas are now in the Bay of Mishra for some resupply, graciously hosted by Miss Alpha.

Tinies Caroling

Tinies Caroling

I think that a group of tinies singing their own version of the Chrismas Carols is something nobody should miss !

the day the Beaumont Sea froze

the are some great pictures being posted for the Winter Fell Photo Contest, and I invite all to have a look and even join and enter your work.  Today this image appeared, by Anuneo, and I find it particularly nice, having captured my ships in a beautiful winter scenery.

a visit to Wild Castle

I have started building a castle rather soon in my SL experience and I have almost always thrown them away after a few days or weeks.
Wild Castle must be my fourth or fifth attempt. It did not start seriously and grew very slowly. I think I laid down the first prims over a year ago. For many months I kept the prims there always ready to delete them should any need arise. And once or twice per month I went there fixing a prim here and changing a texture there.


And after a while I realized that the castle had taken shape and I had began to like it and I was ruling out the idea to delete it any time soon.

The castle is up in the sky, 3000m above Winterfell Ebonshire. Not because of any particular privacy concerns but because I like Ebonshire as it was originally intended by Miss Serra, a place of forests and small cottages.

It is not as "beautiful" or elegant as many other castles you can find in SL but I like the solid look it has when looked from the outside, while I have worked (and I am still working) more indoor where elegance is concerned.

Outside the main door there are some gardens. Not a big space, they are constrained by the shape of the parcels, but the give a good feeling when approacing the castle proper.

The main door gets you inside the Grand Hall. It is a big space decorated with paintings of sailships and naval battles.

The Grand Hall is big enough to be a ballroom and I think it is worth to host a Ball soon there. :) I am organizing an event close to Christmas. I hope it works out well.

The first floor is made by a living space. I haven't finished to furnish all the rooms, but I have always considered it to be a place of knowledge, so books are at home there.

The most significant rooms are the Library and my Study Room. Other rooms to be decorated and furnished soon

The roof level is an open space where I am considering some gardens and fountains. It also gives access to the top level of the towers, where I am creating some guest room, should the need arise.

Enough for today ... have fun with your first and second lives :)

Cheers
