"Boatie"

By now, most everyone knows that the first word my human learned as a child was “boatie”. It was because her family was very involved in boating and fishing, and I guess this led to that. And I seem to have the same interest as my human about a lot of things, including boaties.

Well, yesterday I was checking out some old landmarks, looking for cool things to do when I came upon some locations that had been renamed. And there on the 1942 Mikasa sim I saw the most extraordinary boatie — well, battleship. Apparently this ship has a distinguished past beginning in 1905 during the Russo-Japanese War, and has been restored in Yokosuka, Japan. That’s all I know, other than the fact that this is one of the extraordinary builds in Second Life. I was completely in awe at the level of detail.

This is a huge ship and you can’t really see the details,
click on the photo to seek a more detail view.
To give you and idea of scale,
if you look on the deck of the brown patrol boat,
you’ll see me standing on the deck.

This discovery was totally accidental but once again my “wanderin’ bone” is itching to wander the 30,000+ sims of Second Life. If you recall I started a series of expeditions back in 2008. Anyway, itchy, itchy.
