Tranquil Rain at Sommergewitter

Sommergewitter is a beach sim, but with a bit of a twist – it’s always raining.

Though it sounds rather depressing, the sim is actually very tranquil and welcoming.

Beach ShelterYou can find all kinds of places to shelter from the rain, including this adorable dinghy.

The Lake HouseWandering around, I found the Lake House, complete with the tree growing up in the middle. (If you’ve never seen The Lake House, look it up when you’re in the mood for a tearjerker.)

Horse and BedPicking my way carefully through the rain, I discovered this beautiful horse hanging out near this comfortable-looking canopied bed.  I’m not sure the flimsy gauze would do much to keep out the rain, but it looks gorgeous. 🙂

Windmill

It stopped raining for a brief moment, and I stopped to take a short rest under this huge tree. The rocker and windmill both remind me of familiar sights where I grew up.  Such nostalgia!

LOTD #175 – Warm Sands

LOTD 175

He’d been trying to get a picture of her all day.

He snapped the pic as she turned to ask him a question.

She glared as he grinned.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last few days have been blazing hot where I live.

100F and above – even in the shade!

While I love warm places, I don’t love feeling like an ant under a magnifying glass every time I step outside. -.-

I want warm, not fiery.

Warm sand, warm water, and cool breezes. 😀

So, I found a nice warm beach in SL – the beautiful Bamboo Beach.

One of my recent shopping trips included a stop at The Chapter 4 event.

(It ended on July 24, so if you like what you see, check the mainstores or MP!)

I found this cute little bikini from The Annex and paired it with this darling skirt from Coco.

I love the little sheer strip detail on the skirt.

While I was there, I couldn’t resist these adorable sandals from UC.

I love the color and detailed ankle strapping.

The hair is a free gift from Elikatira at the Hair Fair this year.

I love the color change bow – it adds a touch of fun to the hairstyle.

I recently joined the WoW Skins group and have been wandering around in their Sara skin.

The bangles are from Maxi Gossamer – yet another piece from her Look Book for Mix this month.

I love the cut-out detail of the bracelets – delicate, but substantial.

The anchor necklace from Meva is a find from this round of My Attic @ The Deck.

It was the perfect whimsical touch. 😀
