Baker’s Island off the coast of Cape Breton. 1.86 kilometers n-s and 9.4 kilometers e-w. Owned in RL by one William Baker. Read his story here.

Translated into SL, this becomes the island of another baker, baker Blinker, who is also known as Baker Breton. In Yahoo search of images with “baker breton”, image above is on first pg. of search, 14th overall when last checked.

Translated into sims, Baker’s Island would cover approximately 8×4 sims of 256×256 meters. 32 sims, then. I see it as located in a limbo region, actually, between SL and RL, or possibly in another, neighboring virtual reality closer to RL. I also can see it as a “moon” of SL, or perhaps a planet like Pluto at the very edge of an SL oriented solar system in the future. Time will tell.
