…more then just a summer home ..
I have always wanted a summer home on the beach. My family, for a time, vacationed in Ocean City New Jersey for years after my fathers death in 2000. It was a place where we could morn, and rejuvenate for the future to come without him. I have grown to appreciate the healing powers of the sea air, sand in my feet on a cool morning, sunsets with fried chicken dinners served cold and small barn fires for marshmallows and graham crackers. I remember talking for hours with each member of the family sitting on the beach and learning about the human being each had become. When we were young, I was the oldest sibling and now on the beach I was a grown adult learning about my younger siblings and the years that had separated us. Life is funny in that you grow up wishing to be one way and sometimes, like myself, you grow up to be something totally different. I realize now, that the different paths [and yes I’ve taken many different paths] have given me experiences and wisdom that perhaps are mostly reserved for the elderly. I’ve never been able to actual own a summer home, we always rented for a few weeks at a time, but in SL I can own a beach and decorate it as I see fit! I love love love this Shoreline house by Lindini of L2 Studio Homes. I share it with my boyfriend who you all met a few weeks ago. He lets me decorate as I see fit with very few requests. He asked for a man’s cave, a place where he and his mates can hang out which led to having multiple buildings on a small plot but I think we’ve made the best of the space! We rent from Paradise World Estates and I have found it to be an awesome place to live in SL. For a 4096 plot we have 1125 prims which is a 20% bonus! I don’t get a cut for blogging about Paradise World Estates, but I can appreciate a good deal and service when I find one so I share with you all. I hope that you get to own whatever dream home you have in your imagination and I look forward to hearing and seeing your pictures in flicker/ blogs.
