|This secret cave is NOT on the teleporter directory but if you find it and click the odd treasure chest, there's a prize.|
|As I mentioned in yesterday's post about Learning Island, a coliseum is one item shared between the two builds, though this time there are portals that one walks into so you are transported to a random area based on a theme: Adult (if you are age-verified), Editor's Pick, Linden Realms, Social, Popular, etc. The Adult one gave me a region full notice and the Linden Realms portal told me I wasn't authorized to visit. The Editor's Pick portal dropped me onto an empty lot that the editors must have really, really liked.|
|Available via teleporter is a Sky Retreat directly over the Welcome Point on Social Island. If you jump off the ramp you'll land dead center nearly 680 meters below. No parachutes provided.|
|Tiki Beach is probably my favorite place on Social Island. There are three huts on stilts over the water with a cozy beach-side gathering area. The big one has a little bar and all around is furniture by Hatzfeld Runo, maker of Tiki Tattoo (SLurl) prefabs and furniture, as well as items from other creators. You can grab a toobie to float around on (as you can on many parts of Social Island's beaches) here or just walk on the nice beach. By the way, my pictures are taken with custom Windlight sky and water settings. I'm not a fan of the default settings.|
|Inside the big hut. If the weather turns bad you can still float on the water in comfort.|
|Abnor Mole made a beautiful lighthouse, right down to the details with an on/off switch. This is the best-looking lighthouse in all Second Life, if you ask me.|
|This would be a great place for any group in Second Life to hold a meeting as there are plenty of places to sit and be comfy, even a fair-sized area with a media viewer on the side of the hill.|
Residents who have been around awhile will enjoy visiting Social Island, too. As I mentioned above, the sim would be a great place to hold large group meetings, but the facilities are also great for just relaxing or hanging out. Be sure to visit soon and often.
