A while back I was up in my (very basic) sky workshop high high high above St Helens when Mari came over to see the wooden wood-work lathe I was building…
Mari’s a cracking builder so it’s always nice to show her stuff as I’m still such a noob at it (and I think I always will be). She was a great help with my log cabin and I wanted to show her that I’d actually started enjoying building after moaning on at her about how tedious rezzing and moving and colouring prim-after-prim-after-prim could be. Here she is with my lathe and guide pictures taken from t’interweb behind her (I was in the middle of altering all the textures so the final result looks a bit different, but that’s for another post)…
After I picked her brains we chatted for a while and she showed me the Primmer cars that were going to used in Bay City’s 2nd Anniversary parade – based on the American Shriners I just can’t stop smiling when I see them!
I missed Bay City’s 2nd Anniversary Parade. After all that planning I sodding well missed it. I didn’t mean to but the Gods that rule either/or/and (delete as appropriate) SL’s lag & my PC conspired to give me a whole weekend of crashe. Things would start out OK, but then everything would start t o g e t v e r y s l o w
ARGH! In the end I couldn’t get back in so I buggered off to watch telly & brood. I did manage to take some shots before I exited the field stage left – here are a selection but there are lots more in the Bay City Flickr Group. Also check out there folks for their far better (and longer) experiences: Marianne, Osprey & Adric. And a big old TY to Mari & her Bay City/Nova Albion friends for arranging such a fun event!
Come join Bay City’s 2nd anniversary parade this Sunday 16th May at 12 noon SLT – you’ll have a great time!
Marianne McCann (and all the Bay City planning team) have done a great job organising this year’s celebrations – don’t miss it! Here’s the route – join us at the start point (SLURL: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Bay City – Argos/11/11/24) for the parade or meet us at the end point for the party!
Hard to believe that it’s been two years since the Moles finished the last lick of paint on the (then) newest city in SL and the eager beavers who wanted a slice of Americana were preparing to move in. I took part in the opening parade but missed the first anniversary one as I was away (damn RL!). I’m hoping I’ll be able to make it this year but the date and time are yet to be fixed. Keep your eye on the Bay City Twitter channel and you could do worse than following Mari & Holo’s blogs 😀
