In Art, Beauty, Lapara on September 8, 2019 at 6:00 am

Hidden in the Department of Transportation building for several months is a little installation called Sacrifice.  

It’s one of the hidden surprises (or easter eggs in computer terms) that is all around town for those who like to explore things deeply.  Now that it’s been out for a season, we can post the link.

The old trail was disposed of leaving a blank space.


Aftwards, the final sod and path is laid.  This grass and dirt has special properties allowing for a seamless magic season change.

While some parts of second life suffers an abrupt return to spring in mid-January, and you are looking out the window at the blizzards of March, or April snow-showers, Olde Lapara Towne has you covered.
The snow has been accumulating at record levels!

This could be the last week before the snow actually melts this season. Come check it out!

Also, take a snowy drive on the new Route 1 bypass, Astarte Route 11.

Train crossing the Tadami River near the village of Mishima in Japan

If you’ve been on Bing, you’ll see a train.
Like the train? We have SL’s only running model! We also have a ton more to be renovated as well.

And a remaining Halloween storyline has been discovered in the woods way too late! We’ll have to truck it into storage for next year.


And now it’s time for the Harvest season instead
