Still in Arrowtown, a breeding pen for ozimals, including, yes, rabbits. Especially rabbits it seems, maybe mainly rabbits. Maybe even exclusively rabbits — hard to tell from just the various sites I’ve scanned. Ah, I think I get it. The wittle bunnie wabbit is Ozimals initial entry into the virtual AI pet industry in Second Life.
I couldn’t detect any rabbits nibbling around in this particular spot, though. Maybe they haven’t been adopted yet?
Anyway, as fellow explorer Nish Mip emphasized to me, it’s best to follow the rabbits, so letting the pen act as a pointer of sorts, Ol’ Biking Baker skirts it to continue onwards.
In Hauwai northwest of Arrowtown now, Baker, using distance viewing, spots this conglomeration of similar, small shops whose coned tops are tinted the 4 colors of TILE. The appearance of these primary hues in such an obvious relationship always piques the interest of Baker Bloch, or anyone else in the extended Bakers family I happen to inhabit at the time (Karoz, Hucka Doobie, Baker Blinker, Wilsonia Foxclaw, and so on).
Unfortunately, as Karoz continues to check behind Baker Bloch today, the Hauwai sim is offline for some reason, and so further reporting on the matter will have to wait until later.
In Morton Mains, Baker is strangely tempted by a sign to pull a Jack Nicklaus and shed his spacely garb. He quickly shakes the thought from his mind, thankfully, and continues onward, still fully clothed. Perhaps the sign is some sort of remnant from the days when most of Sunklands was inhabited by heathen nudists, before the far-reaching influence of St. Lemon of Troy and the introduction of Ray the brainard into Big Sink, affecting the weather of the area in an adverse way (so the legend goes). The nudists had to finding clothing and find it quick! And along the way they also found God, or at least St. Lemon’s version of Him/Her/It.
At the cone structures now. Masks are sold inside. Masks cover the face; clothings cover the body. Probably means nothing, though.
OK, Karoz finds the Hauwai sim online again, and goes to check the parcel: called Mickey’s Place.
Nice window tiles! Hmmmm… tiles, TILE…
Baker sitting in a nearby park devoted to psychological healing. Karoz checks to find it is called Sunshine Therapy Garden. The land description:
Empower your personal growth with one on one consults, fireside discussions and self-reflection in a lovely natural garden. We have Tai Chi, Yoga, Piano, Rebirthing therapy, Virgin Mary chapel, Spa, Massage, Soundbowls, Chakra meditation
Sounds like a nice place to hang.
Unfortunately, Baker finds the Garden a bit too laggy, perhaps caused by the many scripts in the area. Taking the hint from a trapping dead end, he decides to call it quits for the night and teleports back home to Pudding Hill and Sunklands Central.
A car with a British flag decortating its top is found travelling west on the road in front of the Sunklands Central house when Baker returns. Heading to the Aotearoa sim, then; in a recent post Hucka D. pairs Aotearoa with Britain in a comparison of Sunklands sinks and world counties. Again: probably just chance.
