The New Poseidon Centre is finished and is a wonderful facility serving the North Sea, Eden and Fruit Islands. The Leeward Cruising Club kicked it off by hosting one of its weekly cruises this evening followed by a great party at the Centre.
All Edenaughts are invited to go check out the new Centre and see the great Statue of Poseidon at the West end of the facility.
Work has begun yesterday on the new North Sea Sailing Centre. After some consultation with interested people and local enterprises, we decided to put down a 3D rendition, with some ideas of the project. Working closely with Elbag and some previous Eden architects, we have now a good idea as to the feeling of the structure.
What we will not have here is another marina. What we will have is a sailing and boating centre where people can come and hang out, learn to sail; try out and buy boats and find many resources for the beginner and expert alike; meet sailors and like-minded people.
The Pier will be the perfect place to watch boat races at Breadnut, with good view of the start/finish line and a couple of the North Eastern buoys of the North Sea. Anyone for a pier party?
This is work in progress and we expect the build to be complete in the next two weeks.
Partied at Holly Kai Park with good friends at the Christmas-themed party. Charlz on the couch holding Bliss and Alex below. Gabi was there as well as many friends. Great music and good times. Btw, today was my 400 days in SL, yay 🙂
No event or wishes. My family had better things to do than see me. My friends were bitching as usual, getting on with their own personal hangups, unloading on me as they do so well, or venting their angst against society and sailing communities. So much fucking negativity.
When I first came to West Isle from the Blue Lagoon Marina, I didn’t have any houses or any form of shelter in my inventory. I didn’t even have any boat with a cabin. So Hawk very kindly set out one of his houses that I have used until now.
I felt the need to stretch a little and change a few things. So I set out to look for a new house. I had an idea on one, but Laycee and Delight took me off to go look at one in Sailors Cove. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be exactly thine one I had been looking at from Tiki Tattoo.
Hatzfed sent me a floor-plan and with that I figured where it would go.
So I set about clearing the old house off the plot. I can’t terraform , but I had a good idea of what I wanted, do I set out some measuring poles hoping Hawk would come online.
Isis came along before him and did the job whilst I was out running the Patch II races. So now it was flat.
With the guidance of Justin, Delight and Rhodus, I rezzed the house. Why is it a little stressful doing that?
It came up fine and after a few slight adjustments, I saved the position. A few modifications to the dock was required and poor Hawk had to come and redo my security as I deleted the orb thingy in my hast to delete the old house. Here you see the security perimeter being defined. Isnt it a shame we have to do this in our pixelated world, but just yesterday when Laycee and I were laying out the plan, some griefer came on to the island and launched some mega rez thing. She was promptly kicked off and banned from the entire North Sea estate.
Here all is finished. Looking good. Some pretty pics:
And at night with the lights on and the fireflies out:
