West of the Rain

West Of the Rain

Today I had the pleasure of entering into the magical little town of West of the Rain created and owned by Oobleck Allagash and Nodnol Jameson.  This is a public sim and full region which is stated to be loosely inspired by the San Juan Islands in Washington State.

     This little sea side town is well crafted with so much attention to detail that its hard to know just where to start.  It is a stunning place for a simple retreat and a photographers delight.  There are many objects through out the Sim with available poses in case you are not carrying a ton of your own.

One of the first things you are greeted by when stepping off the dock, is the "shopping" area of town.  Every store has a difference design and is inspiration for a great photo.  you are also greeted by the calm of the lighthouse which as well is fully furnished and ready for photo opportunities.

If what you are looking for instead is simply a fun and romantic place to stroll with a love one this is also certainly the place.  The description of the region promises frequent events and entertainment, and the scenery certainly makes for a perfect romantic setting.

Picnic Time

Needless to say visiting this region was a great way to spend two hours of my day and I truly enjoyed not only the sights and sounds of the area but also meeting the slew of other photographers that like to visit the place.  A well deserved 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

P.S - I couldn't resist but take this belly picture on the beach, 6 months and counting.
