Great Weekend Explores
Just when I was having a hard time finding some sims to explore that can still amaze me after all my time in SL, I've found some great ones lately. I never even turned my graphics to ultra for these photos as the sims were all so good with natural light settings, but also can be extra amazing with some adjustments. These are all mostly nature areas with their own unique touches and great design.
First I found a multi-sim area consisting of islands with their own unique natural charm and so well put together. Isle of Grace has such a grey sort of grey day beautiful feel to it. This sim just has a really nice feel to it. Salt Water has been around for a while but appears updated from my last visit. Both owned by Tre, tremeldazis. These are so beautiful.

The next great spots are owned by well known amazing sim owner, Lauren Bentham. Baja Norte and Baja Cove are great beach areas that have some nice coveted beach cabins for rent in a sim filled with wonderful things to see and do. The sim info. states, "....
