Feast is in a group of sims that boast vast vegetative beauty. This not to be missed sim, features some of the best flowers and plants in sl to enjoy in many settings. 

Fields of fragrant wildflowers, cool bridges and nice water features though out the whole sim.

The fertile landscape is dotted with some charming cottages and greenhouses. 

Even a great fantasy area with rainbows, fairy ring and magnificent glass orbs. 

Have a seat and spend some time with good company watching the waves as the sun sets. Rose gardens, tree houses and even a nice deck overlooking a great view of the ocean. Too many fantastic things to list and show here. As many times as I have been here I discover something new anytime I come here. I hope you will check it out and enjoy it as much as I do.

The Zarra Sim is home to Zaara Couture as well as some other great shops, but besides that it is beautifully done.

When you tp in by the front entrance of the Zaara Couture store you are welcomed by what I take to be a banyan tree, decorated with streamers. The banyan is the national tree of India, with strong and deep roots it serves to symbolize unity. It is said that married Hindu women will often worship this tree in hopes to lead a long and happy married life.

If you walk around a little you will come upon this street, that includes a barber shop and great open air market. Watch out for our bovine friends.Cows are very sacred to the Hindu and you will see them roaming about freely in some cities.

Another stunning work and my personal favorite feature of this sim is the Temple to Ganesh. Considered to be a God of prosperity, many look to him as a protector and remover of obstacles.

You will need to remove your shoes before entering. Once inside you will see all the wonderful offerings of sweets and incense. Everything he holds symbolizes something, such as the axe in his upper right hand. It  symbolizes a dettachment of desires that can be obstructive,and also serves as a prod to push men to a path of righteousness and truth. You can read more about Ganesh here.

After spending some time exploring this exotic sim, swing by the Nasha Lounge right across from Zaara Couture. Nasha in Hindi means intoxication. This is the perfect place to sit and talk with friends or dance the night away to some Bollywood tunes. It is also available for parties and other functions.

I hope that you will take time to explore this magnificent sim

Love Padlock Bridge

Lovers Padlock Bridge

No one is really sure where the practice of lovers placing padlocks on a bridge and throwing away the key to signify their love originated but it is something that is taking place all over the world in rl. Now at the Love Padlock Bridge, there is a place in sl where you can share this experience with your love and share your story with the world.

Lovers Padlock Bridge

Tradition states that lovers will put their initials, a special date or other info on the lock and place it on a bridge and then they throw the key into the water to show their eternal commitment to the unbreakable bond of love.

Cup of Goodness

One night a dear friend of mine, Suzie, took me to this cool little coffee shop. I didn't know then what a jewel she had found and how much time I would come to spend here.

Elisabeth Fairy Queen of Cup of Goodness

Cup of Goodness coffee house is the creation of Elisabeth Beurling, it has been in operation since 2006. After a brief closing in 2009 it was reopened in Sept 2010 to the delight of many. It is housed in this great building that looks like a refurbished mill or something. The building was originally custom made to house posters and artwork that Lis, used to sale. As a matter of fact much of the art and furnishings there are still for sale.

Cup of Goodness Parlor

The building itself has 3 floors inside with many great places to curl up and clear your mind, have a deep meaningful talk or engage in great conversation with Lis and the other regulars here. The whole place is so warm and welcoming you will meet no strangers here. Prepare yourself for spontaneous dancing and merriment.

Cup of Goodness Patio

Besides the building there are some great outdoor spaces too. Step out the back onto the patio, maybe join everyone in some dancing or grab a seat for some quiet outdoor time looking over the water. Off to the side is also an area with a bonfire and more great places to chill out.

Cup of Goodness Bonfire

Cross the covered bridge that leads to the Annex, a venue here set up for live events. Live music, poetry readings and great discussions about food, wine and more. If you would like more info on events join the Cup of Goodness group in world or swing by and pick up info in the coffee house or annex.

The annex at Cup of Goodness

Lis said that this coffee house was her favorite thing about second life because of the people that come there and the world view they give on current events. I can see why and now it is one of my favorite things about second life too. When you need some time to relax and enjoy some great conversation, head on over to the Cup of Goodness and pull up a seat. Let them know Margaux sent you. See you there sometime!!

I found, Roche, this great little spot through the showcase. I am not sure what I expected but something about this place feels like home. There are many sweet spots, activities and interesting details to explore here.

Starting off at this cool little park, take time to picnic with friends, catch a show at the little amphitheater or watch the sun go down swinging on this awesome tire swing. There are also free bikes here you can get to explore the sim with.

Following the trail around past the hot dog stand, I run into a friend on my way to the bakery.

Be sure to explore this cozy little farmhouse on top of the hill.

Get warm & cozy up for a long talk with a friend or quiet time to sort your thoughts

Roche Cafe and Gallery

Besides the bikes to ride there is a little pond with boats available. There are new friends to be found at the park and next to the farmhouse. The whole place gives a warm familiar feeling, and evokes memories of a simpler time. This place is put together beautifully and the details that were used in setting this all up is amazing. If you are looking for a nice place to get away from it all this is it. Don't take my word for it see for yourself...
