How many owls can you find? Reward!!!

“When the owl sings, the night is silent. (Quand le hibou chante, La nuit est silence)” 
― Charles de Leusse

Some people who know me in real life, know that I love owls. Not sure why I do. They are mysterious creatures and so very smart. I once had an owls nest in my tree and three little barn owls were born...the cutest thing ever.

Here at the Retreat, you will find many owls...either in artwork or sitting owls. I have a challenge for you. Look around in every corner in the house and garden and see how many owls you can count. I will give a gift to the first 5 people who can tell me in an IM inworld.

Hurry how many owls?

Second Afterlife Cemetery

I stumbled upon this cemetery here in Second Life and spend a good hour looking at the graves.

The Second Afterlife Cemetery is a quiet, park-like setting with sounds of nature and soft music, which make it the perfect place to make a memorial for your loved ones from Real Life and Second Life.

Here is one note of the graves...I do this often in Real Life when I visit a grave that just speaks out to me I stand there for a moment.This one seemed to say hello to me.

18th December 2014
RIP Zoey Allstar
My Dear Friends
If you are reading this, then it means that I am no more in Real life or Second Life.
I have left instructions with Nikky & Sarah for what I want to do here in Second Life, and how I want to be remembered.
I never married in real life, but back on 18th August 2009, I married my Love here in Second Life.
Jonn you have been in my heart since the day we meet at the bar. I love all the time we spent together and all the messages and emails we shared.
I still remember the day we married like it was yesterday, and not 6 years ago.
I still love you now, even though I have not seen you for a long time, but your voice is still with me.
My Darling Jonn, be happy in both Second Life and Real Life.
Kiss Poppy for me & go for a walk on the beach with her and watch the sunset and think of me.
Nikky, Vanessa & Rose. I love all 3 of you like we were sisters and I miss you all.
Be happy and remember me laughing!
I've asked Nikky to help Sarah (my sister in law) put together something to remember me here in Second Life when the time comes, as I was so happy here with you, my friends.
Remember me with Laughter 
Remember me with Joy 
Remember me with a Tear in your Eye 
Remember me and be Happy You Knew Me
If I can come back as a ghost, be sure I will haunt SL!

I was deeply saddened visiting this place, but also very grateful to the Second Life we have here. We have built a family of people, who do mean much more than their pixel creations to us.
Be kind to one another, even here in SL we need love and peace.

Copperfield Estate and Winery

One of the amazing things in second life is that you meet some very great people here. We were so thrilled to have been invited to a private Garden Party at the lovely Copperfield Estate and Winery. This breathtaking estate is owned and operated by 

Norivne Copperfield and his wonderful wife Linnette...perhaps you can go and get a viewing of the vineyards.

It was such an elegant but relaxing affair. Thanks for having us!!!

Anytime Vacation!!!

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” 

          Maya Angelou

On the road in Second Norway is always an adventure and you never know what you may see. These two moose were strolling along the road without a care.

Zeek and myself are so lucky to have this vacation home to go to when we need to get away. We offer this home, fully furnished with the best quality and tasteful decor as part as our Honeymoon package.
Want to rent it for a day or weekend? Contact us inworld.

From here you can sail to the Blake Sea or take the Second Norway Railway to the airport and fly.

...being without you 
is like rain on the beach
and no sun shining through...

If you are ready for some rain after this long summer, you may want to stop by "Sommergewitter".

There is much to see on this rainy place and many opportunities to take photographs. You can also get dry in one of the lovely beach cottages and hang out there.

Head out on the highway!

Looking for adventure? Oh yes we were for sure and Second Norway was not gonna be safe.

I guess we didn't have enough from the very wild tour bus adventure the day before, because here we are again on bikes. Some of us are better drivers than others. (I'm just sayin')
Either way you put it, at one point or another one of us was doing some under water driving or even tracking the railroad.

But of course none of that matters when you have a load of fun and laugh until you almost( I said almost ) pee your pants. Greg and Stacey are a blast to have around. They are funny, witty and so cute in love with each other. :)

"Be careful Zeek! Watch out for the duck?" That was all I could say as he was coming down the street.
