Abyss Observatory

Continuing up through my ‘landmarks’ folder, deleting the no-longer extant ones, I will come across ones that I think ‘Please don’t be gone’, the Abyss Observatory is one of those destinations, and I was so pleased to see it is still here… I really love this place, it’s such a gorgeous, blatant labour of geeky love, people have obviously put a lot of work into the scientific correctness of what you see here, it would crush me to discover an abandoned plot, or the sleazy advertising of SL property manipulators, here. But, no, this wonderful place is still here…

… there’s lots to see above the water, but my favourite part has always been what is under the water. You take this cute little moving platform from the surface…

… and you are in this cool, transparent, underwater walkway…

… that winds through all this aquatic splendour…

… there are plenty of informative pictures and charts, letting you know what the significant flora/fauna is in the area you are in…

… and, of course, there’s plenty of fauna…

… including a titanic struggle between two giants of the deep…

… at the deepest part, you can take another moving platform/lift that takes you down to a staircase that takes you…

… out among fumarols and the creatures that live near them…

… as I said, there’s also lots to see on the land. Something I found delightful was these three advertisements, which seem to be for people who want to be passengers on aeroplanes… what a gorgeous, only-in-SL concept… I’d never heard of it, or seen these advertisements, before, but I guess they are in keeping with the sweet, geeky vibe I get here. Another sign I saw completely blew me away…

… this is truely geek heaven! A sign advertising over 300 educational places! I didn’t have the time to investigate further, but I will totally come back and do so, very soon. I really enjoyed my return here, and it made my day that the Abyss Observatory is still up and running (:

*edit* Awwww… after posting this, I zoomed back there, eager to explore the 300 places… damned thing doesn’t work ):
