Monument to Oldbies
I used to think this was a build that was more or less thrown together quickly by Kim Anubis and RacerX Gullwing when I talked to Racer about all this...eight years ago, was it? You'll forgive me if my memory of this entire interchange isn't the sharpest -- while only a midbie myself, I'm not getting any younger! It's a nice but modest little build called "Treasure Island" on a bit of water near Ravenglass Hall which was put there basically just to make some landscaping and a little area for newbies to dive for freebies and to have treasure hunts. I'm grateful to the oldbies who made this or donated stuff for it but I didn't realize I should be *eternally* grateful -- after all, for years I had to deal with the prims not being set, and I still have to deal with the fact that none of these objects were sold to me to manage, and are all still in the possession of Kim, and therefore she can come and remove the build any time. Such is Second Life!
However, when I put up this island lo those many eight years ago, what I didn't realize is that this was supposed to be a Monument to Oldbies. To their fabulousness. To the FIC Queen Kim Anubis and the Friends of Kim Anubis who Helped Her With This Build. So I hasten to give credit where credit is due:
Deck chair by Druss Mandala
Tropical drink by Baki Baskerville
Boat by Neal Nomad
Camel Banner by Alexander Daguerre
Rocks, waterfall & lantern by Kim Anubis
and of course (underwater, where you'll have to dive!)
Ship Wreckage and pieces of lumber by RacerX Gullwing!
Visit and see the freebies! The blue flower is particularly nice.
I thought I'd look up these oldbies and see if they still exist, and note their birthdate and their profile slogan.
Here we go:

Everyday I'm shuffling... Also of note, if you have a deckchair with my name as the creator, for the love of god don't IM me about it. I didn't sell it to you.
