Port Trianon: Connecting the Shared Seas

Port Trianon: Midday

It's been a whirlwind three months since the Duch de Coeur & Rocca Sorrentina formalized their plans for a closer physical connection between their two realms.

We started with the addition of two, brand-new, sailable regions linking Rocca Sorrentina to the southern shores of Provence Coeur. Then the real work commenced.

We were busy dredging harbours, forming islands and attending to all the little details that make this a magical Second Life destination. A few minor bumps were experienced along the way; I managed to flatten both Provence Coeur Est & Provence Coeur Est2 with one keystroke (note to self: always look above sea level when using the terrain tool especially when it's set to high) but all-in-all the work progressed smoothly.

Port Trianon: Looking East to Rocca Sorrentina

My biggest contribution to this project was the addition of Port Trianon .

It began, as many new construction projects do, by making some tough decisions about location and existing structures. Subsequently, the old Coeur Fairgrounds, site of many a revelry, was boxed up and removed. I'll always have a soft-spot in my heart for those monthly fairs with the patrons yelling Beer!! and jigging around the apple tree.

I am sure that the fair could be moved to another location.....Maybe a different location every month?

The thing about the Coeur Fair was that it took up at least three full days (8 hours or more per day) of my time a month. I'm not complaining, but as time went on I found it increasingly difficult to commit that amount of time.

I did try to reduce the frequency to quarterly (once per season) but my heart just wasn't in it.

For now, there are lots of good memories.Who knows, perhaps the urgewill strike me again to give it another shot some time in the future. If so, finding a location shouldn't be a problem. As they say, "never say never" :)
