Serenity & Tranquility in Second Life

Serenity & Tranquility is the name of the homestead region designed by Ron (Veronica Franchini), and which offers a peaceful heaven where those in need of a break from the pressures of the world, physical or digital, or who simply want to hang out with friends and  / or lovers, can freely do so.  Homestead region.

Surrounded by tall islands and hills, Serenity and Tranquillity offers a rich, low-lying landscape where the trees seem to hold up the sky whilst rivers of flowers meander beneath their outstretched boughs, and sandy tracks lead visitors from location to location, be it the cabin in the woods or the beach or the tiki on the lake or the art gallery, or any one of the romantic spots scattered across the island.

From the landing point, it’s just a short walk to the cabin, and from there to a pair of ancient stone circles, arched pillars still intact, which offer a place to celebrate weddings under the open sky, but sheltered from the sun by the surrounding trees. In the opposite direction to the cabin, you’ll likely find your way to the gallery building toward the north-east corner of the region.

The gallery is the home to portraiture by Tex McDonald, and includes his studio space, together with some of his landscape work. I’ll be honest and admit I’d not previously come across Tex’s work, but it is something I’ll be keeping an eye out for in future. A short distance from the gallery is one of the little romantic spots scattered across the region – the aforementioned tiki hut, which sits out over a small lake served at one end by a little waterfall. Walk around the banks of the lake, and more sitting / cuddle spots will make themselves known.

The south-west corner of Serenity and Tranquility is where the beach is to be found, ideally located for watching the sun set beyond one of the natural breakwaters which sit just off the west side of the region, a lighthouse warning of their presence. With a beach house and a sandy expanse, this corner of the island again offers several places to relax, both indoors and out, together with one of the InTan dance systems spread across the region. Or for those who prefer, a hot tub awaits a walk along a wooden pier.

With a subtle sound scape, and suited to a range of windlight options for photography, Serenity & Tranquility is an ideal setting for getting  away from cares and stresses. Recommended.

    I had a short visit to Serenity & Tranquility last Thursday, April 14th, following Inara’s blog. It is a really lovely sim, a perfect place for wedding and to spend some quiet time either alone or in togetherness. My visit was short, but this place is for sure with another visit!
