Tribute Island and the Big Green Switch

Drax and I thought we would explore a little over the weekend.  My boss Nikk Huet owns two fantastic sims, Tribute Island and The Big Green Switch.  Although I’d visited Tribute Island before I knew that Drax hadn’t been there, also I had missed a lot last time, its a place you can keep going back to and see new things.  We entered a theatre on Tribute island and skylarked about, Drax became James Bond OO7 and I swam with Jaws, I just got out before the big fish got me!

Going out into the open once more we stood chatting, suddenly I noticed something was attacking us as I saw the beam from a ray gun hit the ground behind Drax.   Pulling back we could see that it was a giant alien craft from the wonderful H.G. Wells’ story ‘War of the Worlds’  It is actually a tribute to actor Richard Burton who narrated War of the Worlds for music by Jeff Wayne.

Tribute Island has so much to see, its well worth a visit.   I had written about it before for CNN when I had visited the memorial park, it’s a tribute to all the British troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, so very sad!  It’s a lovely thing for Nikk to do, at least people will remember all those who bravely fought for us. 

We decided to head on over to The Big Green Switch, its a site all about being good to the environment and ways to save energy.  We spotted a structure like the front of a boat and posed as if on the Titanic, I could almost feel the wind whistling through my hair as we captured the moment.

It was a fun day and we both really enjoyed it.  It’s lovely to get out and about, and we will do a lot more exploring all over the grid as soon as we get a chance.

    What a wonderful weekend. This is what SL is all about! The joy and beauty of discovering places like these made it a perfect weekend. Of course it wouldn’t have been anywhere near as much fun without sharing the time with you! That made it perfect!

    Hiya – that place look amazing! I’ll have to take time out and go there soon. I’m very disappointed there was no bikini in the jaws shot, Ms Bracken 😉

    Hmmm, a Southener in a bikini, what a gut wrenching thought!!

    Ooooo, ya knows I was jesting – you big soft apeth. Taking the rise out of each other about being a southener wuss or northern scally is all part of being British and mates. When all said and done, it’s the French we both take the p155 out of 🙂

    p.s. Dennise Van Outen in a bikini is yummy, but Lisa Dingle…? See – you southeners are a far more attractive bunch.*

    *Than people from Yorkshire, that is. Next to us Lancastrians is a whole different story…
