The Sunshine and Tan Lines event kicks off next week in the 3-D virtual world There promoting fun summer activities to do with friends online while beating the heat in real life. This week we plan on highlighting unique Summer Spots you can visit in There. We’re on the hunt for the best virtual pools, hot tubs, swimming holes and beaches that inspire that carefree summertime feeling when hanging out with friends.
While exploring the waterways of the Fantasy Island Neighborhood, we stumbled upon a beautiful waterfall spanning the length of the water channel. Upon closer inspection, we discovered the entrance to an underwater cave on top of the falls and couldn’t resist taking the plunge into the underwater environment.
If you have never had the opportunity to swim in the ocean in There, this is your chance to experience a unique and serene underwater world. As you walk down through the entrance to the cave and submerge your avatar underwater, the tranquility and beauty of the sea life below inspires a sense of calm and relaxation.
A blanket of colorful shells and bottom dwelling sea creatures span the sandy floor of the cavern. Large schools of fish dart back and forth around your head with a nervous energy. Up close the water is a calm and tranquil shade of blue, but off in the distance it grows dark and murky. You can make out large shadows slowly gliding through the water. The curious movements draw you to the back of the cavern. A shipwreck from long ago dots the underwater landscape. The amount of bountiful booty strewn about in broken chests is a treasure hunter’s dream.
The calming effects of the underwater environment give off a sense of safety as you explore deeper towards the back of the cavern. Camouflaged in the drifting beds of kelp, giant avie-eating sharks lurk waiting for the next unsuspecting swimmer.
Luckily we don’t have Health in There, because otherwise it would be GAME OVER for any Avie brave enough to swim through these shark infested waters without a safety cage.
In addition to great white sharks and schools of fish, there are several mystical creatures who inhabit the underwater environment as well. We encountered beautiful mermaids, a shy water dragon and a very friendly octopus in our exploration under the sea.
Take the plunge and explore the amazing and unique Underwater Environment created by Lynn_2. We highly recommend visiting this one of a kind Summer Spot in There! If you are not a strong swimmer, we suggest using a flotation device and the buddy system to avoid being shark bait.

The Queen is having a dance to celebrate the end of There is Feudal week. Dress your avatar up in fancy Renaissance clothes or a costume and wear a mask to keep your identity hidden at the Masquerade Ball. Well…technically your Nametag gives your identity away, but we can all play along by turning Nametags off. ‘wink
The Queen’s Masquerade Ball will be held at Karma Kastle on Tuesday, July 19th at 7:00 PM PT. Sign up early for the extravaganza, everyone will be there with their costumes on.
The skies were filled with shiny stars and fire breathing dragons tonight in There over the mysterious island of Tyr. We captured some of the magical moments the Thereian community spent with the giant mythical creatures during the B.A.B.S. There is Feudal Dragon Floatilla event.
As Thereians go back in time this week for There is Feudal, make sure your avatar has the appropriate attire for the Renaissance period. Play the part as a knight in shining armor, village peasant or the royal Queen. Our Designers have everything you need to look your best for medieval week in the There.
