Summer, Bondi Beach Sydney

It’s January 2018. For much of the world this is a cold time of the year but for those of us on the bottom half, it is summer or wet season, depending on how close or far you are from the equator.  Now with the holiday seasons out of the way and a holiday from blogging, it’s time to get stuck into it so where is best to start the new year but somewhere I know for real…

Sydney is my city of birth so I decided to spend some time relaxing inworld at Sydney and Bondi Beach regions inworld. It has been a long time since I have visited here as it this was very new at the time.

I can’t remember what Sydney looked when it opened in Second Life but I am happy with almost all of what I see. The inclusion of iconic sites has me feeling like I am at home. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is better than I thought it would be and the Australia Square Building is a must for any inworld Sydney build. Alterations of what’s real and what are rather interesting like Circular Quay where there is a display of Australian cars, minus the British Ford Cortina. The details of Australian cars has me very impressed.

I found a lovely place to lay down and relax at Circular Quay with the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as towers of North Sydney stand proud in the background. This Holden V8 ute was rather comfy to lay on to rest my poor feet from all the walking along Sydney streets.

Now, there are several venues to dance your feet away so I would recommend you join Sydney’s local group ‘Sydney City, Australia’ to be in the loop of what’s hot. There’s also shopping for clothing and other items.

“Welcome to one of the best groups in Second Life! We enjoy all the great things in virtual Sydney and Bondi Beach including the best events featuring original talent acts entertainment, surfing, shopping and awesome events!”

I experienced nostalgia plus at the ferry terminal which is located at Circular Quay in real world of Sydney. Blue and white transport colours is old hat now and the hydrofoil is long retired but it was awesome to see it. They cut the length of the trip between Sydney and Manly by half. I personally prefer the large ferries.

There are two regions for Sydney and Bondi Beach. Sydney does have Luna Park with the crazy clown face to walk through its mouth but it looks like a dance venue. I’m not sure how they work it but it does look posh.

Bondi Beach is set up with the iconic building at the beach. There are sunbeds to lay out on your own or with a friend. Seschmet joined me to relax at Bondi Beach. We didn’t use the water floaties but rested on one of the many sunbeds.

I do have one personal criticism of Bondi Beach and that’s the dead shark hanging on the beach. Killing sharks as a sport no longer pleases most of us and we are mostly against shark nets so I was disappointed to see a dead shark hanging for all to see like some sports trophy.

We sat outside the pizza shop which has a dine in table set up inside and this outdoor garden furniture which needs adjusting for seating and photo comfort.

Bondi Beach has beautiful big waves however you can’t rez anything to enjoy the water but you can easily relax here. This area is well spread out for people to relax without getting into each others hair. Bondi Beach has a stunning presentation so why not put your togs/cosi(swimmers) on and lay out at Bondi Beach.

Don’t forget your walking shoes to explore Sydney. There are iconic buildings to admire and take your photos of.

Wishing All A Fun Festive Season

What a year 2017 has been for Virtually Sheree.

Virtually Sheree was happily plodding along but then 2017 happened and wow, just wow. What a year it is has been.

First big event for Virtually Sheree was being accepted as being part of the blogger team for the Medieval Faire held to raise monies for Relay For Life.

Then it was straight into my first Second Pride event. Not only was it my first time to attend but I was part of the team. Their blogging team. I was only going to put in a maximum of three hours a day all but nope, I was there in my pride colours. Pride Kitty went from a purr to a purrrrr.

There was also starting SLAD or Second Life Airport Destination which covered airports in Second Life. This lead to an offer of employment with SL Aviation Network which I enjoyed but was short lived as it wasn’t me and I don’t believe they had the right person for the job as a reporter.

My Second Life has barely slowed down for me as a blogger since Second Pride got hold of me and threw me into the glitter pond which I am eternally grateful. Virtually Sheree soon started to cover LGBTQI friendly events, clubs and other destinations.

Most recently was Second Pride’s winter festival over a course of two and bit days.

Of importance for me though not related to Virtually Sheree was starting what is pretty much something like a world cruise of Second Life seas as four women sail around mainland continents exploring the world out there. Our crew of four being Dariah(skipper), Dahlia(navigator), Abby and myself as general lazy butt crew members who are in it for the exploring with little responsibilities but to be happy and perve on each other.

While I’m taking about Abby, we’re now partnered, engaged to be married sometime around Spring next year, Second Life time.

And Miss Onyx has returned to Second Life.

With 2017 being so busy, I do feel as if I have neglected many friends as I have not been as freely available was I once was so maybe next year I’ll photo bomb them.

Also, I found myself approached to answer a question for an e-magazine regarding Second Life. Eclipse included me in From the Grid section which was amazing.

Who knows what 2018 will see. Here’s to looking forward to seeing what 2018 has to offer next year.

I will still be there. Virtually Sheree will be here and Cafe Sheree will also be here in Bay City(Harwich).

Wishing you the very best on this your holiday season and a happy new year 2018.

Day 3 Winter in Oz 17th December

It’s been one funtastic weekend with Second Pride hosting Winter in Oz to celebrate Christmas along with any holiday season you participate in and what an event it was. Whew, I’m almost full of brandied egg nog from all the fun I had.

Today’s music was across a range of genres like old style rock, night club dance music and Christmas music. The number of people at Second Pride to celebrate was impressive and I was happy to see my friend, Megan find her way to a Pride event. The bug has bitten yet another.

As we partied below, Santa spun is sleigh around the block however he did come down to dance with us on the floor, as did a reindeer. Check my youtube video embedded in this article to watch them.

And I must say how nice it was for Second Pride event to hold the finale on the day of my rez day. Yes, thank you DJ Kahvy for sending out your notice. Very cheeky indeed.

Top marks goes to the photo bomber. I don’t know your name but your photobomb was perfect timing so I gave you a special place or two in today’s video round up of Winter in Oz.


Thank you to everyone at Second Pride, performers and sponsors whose dedication makes all this possible. What a freaking funtastic weekend I had.

Day 2 of Winter in Oz 16th December

On the twelve hours of Saturday, my Second Pride gave to me…

…dj’s to play while a woman dances closes up against me.

I rocked over to Second Pride three times today, starting off in the morning wearing nothing but a summer bikini as I was dressed for a weekly boat touring cruise with three friends. To wake up in the morning and have beats to become more aware of the day is better than coffee.

My second wiggle over to Winter in Oz after the ocean cruise was with my girlfriend, Abby who got her groove on with me before she was tucked into bed but not before some dancing to let our hair down.

The crowd by then had built up and it was, as expected, freaking funtastic.

There was a prize awarding orb spinning over the dance floor, occasionally handing out prizes to the lucky people who won a prize.

Sunday will be the finale of Winter in Oz held by Second Pride with DJ’s and a community to have your feet tapping in your sleeping when you make it to bed. There is festive event in Second Life like an event organised by Second Pride. Come and feel your festive pride.

Venus Beach II – Ladies Only Venue

Ladies, there are two women only venues I frequent in Second Life, both which I plan to cover. Both have plenty of activities to keep you entertained in a fun women’s only environment owned by Laura Garmes and Avion Luminos.

Venus Beach II is a two region destination with much to do with dancing up the top with a weekly round up and changing dress themes, varying music styles and a relaxing chat as we discuss many things like music that’s playing.

venus beach teleport panel_001

When you arrive at Venus Beach II, the entry point will take you to many directions either by foot or teleport. Dancing areas(there are a few dancing areas) are at a short walking distance from the entry point.

If you prefer to walk to explore like I do, there is plenty to see and do as you take in the beauty of both regions here. Or you could select from the teleport board if you prefer. From dancing to shopping, driving, their amusement park, hopping to your death by sky dive should you not release your parachute which can be a bit messy so best you pull that cord so we can enjoy you alive.

With dances at Venus Beach II, I have attended dances covering themes such as food. Dress theme I have been to includes Halloween, rock, medical and mermaid. Yes, there is an underwater dance floor for mermaids as well. You just might get wet at Venus Beach II.

While Venus Beach II is a women’s only venue, you don’t have to be LGBTQI to visit. Bring your adult female avatar and get your wiggle on, maybe fly a hang glider or fly a plane.

Yes, I did mention flying.

There is a small airstrip with a panel to choose a temp rez plane to fly. Landing is the fun part so don’t forget to update your Second Life Insurance before you fly. You can also use one of your own aircraft.

And for you ladies who love driving hard and fast, there is a racing track, again with a temp rez selection of what to drive or rez one of your own. It’s at this location where you may take a parachute and leap 500 metres for the stunning view as you lower to the ground.

amusement park_001

Or come to Venus Beach II to play with friends or bring a date and let your hair down at the amusement park. With rides like dodgem cars, ten pin bowling and hair raising rides, you will have the time of your life.

There is so much to do here from mellowing to blood rushing fun. And if you are looking to meet new people, maybe meet new friends, come to Venus Beach II as everyone is friendly here.

And while you’re here, you might find something you would like to buy to wear. I recently bought myself a pretty dress.
