The question of how to get five people across the water to the small island of Mohrr was, in the end, easy to answer. Speedboat! I had one that comfortably took seven people so I started the engine and we all hopped in*.
The water behind us spewed white foam as we sped off towards the ever burning spaceship embedded in the small tropical island. Once on land, we circled the smoking craft and examined the crash site – it turned out that it belonged to Harry Linden who crashed here back in early 2006.
He must have survived the accident though as his tent and campsite were still there, along with his luggage… which we riffled, of course! Such wonderful freebies he’d thoughtfully left behind for visitors!
After we had relaxed in the sun loungers, my fellow explorers had to leave and as the sun set over the horizon, I found myself alone.
I made camp for the night and resolved to explore the small islands dotted around in the morning before returning to my car.
The sun splashed rose petals across the new sky as I woke and started the motor once more. I took a far more leisurely pace and headed over to the lighthouse I could see rising from a sea in Kremer.
I swung my boat over to the stone steps and set off to explore the small island – all I could find was a few seats and some information screens that told me this was an Linden office where public meetings were held. As I climbed back into my boat, I couldn’t help but think that this was one office with a far better view than mine…
I headed over to the only other small island I could see and found it was deserted but for an empty Linden tee-shirt and collectors card dispenser – for what purpose, I could not tell.
The inland sea offered a myriad of possibilities – the huge lighthouse to the south, the forest to the west, the rivers and inlets to the east or the buildings to the north. I had to choose one and I decided on the architectural temptations of the north and headed across the empty water of Rechleff towards Clementina. The only problem was that I had left my car parked in Bodgea far across the sea in the south…
Yours in Travel. And a speedboat!
* Well, in truth, while the others chatted on the roof of the Bodega Explorer’s Base, I did a quick search for speedboats, teleported to a few marinas until I found one I liked, bought it, teleported back, discovered I could not rez it up in the water there, spent five minutes flying around for a place where building was allowed, sped back to my friends and hollered for them to leap from the three-storey building into my new boat below. What followed was the amusing spectacle of five people shouting “Where are you?” “Down here?” “Where?” “In the water! Jump!” with avatars blindly leaping off and missing the boat completely. But none of that sounds as romantic as “I had one that comfortably took seven people so I started the engine and we all hopped in…”, now does it?
