The Blake Sea looks calm and the sailing is good, but it can be a violent sea and waters you must learn to navigate. I don’t know how many sims there are yet, but there must be hundreds when you measure all the coastal and island waters around the open sea. It seems that every crossing is a different sim server, so bizarre things happen at crossings.
I’ve been out on the Blake Sea in different sailboats several times in the past few weeks. Each time I’ve struggled with the quirkiness of my boats and Second Life sailing. I could ramble on and on about my learning experience. And I could ramble on and on about those bizarre happenings at the crossings. But the thing is, no matter the perils on that sea, I’ve found the adventure to lead to places of discovery and wonder. Here are a few random photos that set the stage for my adventures.
I have seem many things out there on that sea. My curiosity and wanderlust is running wild. The sheer vastness of the sea and the lands that touch it demand further exploration. I’ve decided I need a bigger boat and Marlena has told me of some new boats that can hold a party of six. I wonder how such a ship and it’s guests would hold up though in the perils of The Blake Sea.
