Lately, I’ve been suffering from a small case of the January Blues. This dreary weather has me dragging, but thankfully I’ve found the perfect cure—a little vitamin D. Upon seeing the news that Marianna has moved Monentes Jewelry to a new location at Bridgemere—Carnelian Bay, and that it has surfing and sailing to boot—I knew I had to take a visit.
After taking the teleport to the new store location, fly or run down toward the sandy bay. Once there, you’ll find a variety of boards, boats, and beach chairs. I tried my hand at surfing and after several attempts, I even managed to stand up on the board a few times.
There’s also a little green catamaran for two. Find a willing victim err… I mean, partner, and try not to crash. (Max and I may have ended up shipwrecked on a small island.) Don’t worry too much if you do, though because they automatically return to the correct spot.
Once you’ve exhausted yourself, you can lay down on one of the shady lounge chairs or stretch out on the beach. Personally, I chose the latter option and soaked up the wonderful rays. Closing my eyes, I listened to the waves lapping at the shore, and daydreamed of summer.
To wrap up our beach day, I sat with Max in the Adirondack chairs by the fire. The crackling fire kept us warm as the sun began to set. Looking up at the stars, we tried—to no avail—to find some constellations.
I can say with complete confidence that I have found paradise in this virtual world and this is most certainly it.
