Hoist the Mainsail!

Sailing at Innisfree.

My charming friend AM took me sailing yesterday which is a wonderful way to pass the time. She's an expert sailor and kept us away from whales and orcas and other things which inhabit the Second Life seas. The only obstacle we encountered was running aground on a sim boundary which tends to sink ships. This surprised me since I always though it was loose lips which sunk ships.

Since she was young, Dot Lane has loved sailing and the sea, so much so in fact that she has had SL tattoos made to reflect this passion. Below you will see my fore and aft tattoos. The stars indicate port and starboard, and the photo was taken at the Port Caledon with the channel markers as a background. The multi-talented and dear friend BR created the anchor tattoo. You haven't been to Caledon? If you're a fan of Victoriana or steam punk you will want to go there post haste and you will even see the Loch Ness Monster at Port Caledon. As always, click on the photos for larger versions.
