Sea Level

I love the ocean, but only so far as I can stand up in the water. My fear of deep water is a bit irrational, I know, but I’ve never had the slightest desire or interest in scuba diving in RL—I leave it to the hardier of spirit. The wonderful designs from the Under the Sea Expo do make me a bit wistful, though about what I am missing by staying out of the deep.

Kriss Lehmann’s items for the Expo make the perfect underwater habitat for these great mesh fish from Oumi Aboubakar and the best and most natural looking sea turtle I have seen in SL from Kaikou Splash. I hope Kaikou will be a part of future Expos!

The NDiver full scuba kit makes getting ready to dive easy. The kit does not come with an AO, but works with any AO you might have.

No matter how lovely it is down there, It’s always a relief to come up for air!!! The Expo runs through tomorrow so make sure to have a look before it’s all over.

Beyond the Sea

The Under the Sea Expo is on right now and it is a stunning build. I have never been much of an underwater personality in SL but it is is quite popular with many residents, and at the Expo it is easy to see why. There are some wonderful underwater plant designs at the Expo so I tried my hand at underwater landscaping.

This shoot reminded me of the Julio Iglesias version of Beyond the Sea that was used at the end of the recent film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailin’

-Under the Sea, Bobby Darin

Unlike that fantastic film’s ending, though, I hope neither of us ends up shot in the head.
