If one looks at a map of the region, the relative isolation of this island is quite apparent, situated as it is smack dab in the middle of the Blake Sea.
As we approached the island, the first thing that loomed in the distance was the enormous lighthouse, which at 85 meters tall is supposedly the tallest such structure in the Blake Sea.
A thuck thuck thuck sound also heralded the approach of a red helicopter, which landed in a helipad on the island and disgorged two furries, who came down to greet us and marvel at The Wallaby.
Blake Sea was created to cater to the sailing community in Second Life after the USS (United Sailing Sims), which owned a vast number of sims and represented the sailing clubs in SL, threatened to "jump ship from SL".
As time passed, the USS allowed other interest groups such as the Fighting Sails (informally known as the "Pirates") and the aircraft communities to extensively use the area as well.
a storm killed 18 people during the Fastnet Race in the Atlantic.
Far below us we spotted The Wallaby as it gently bobbed in the slight ocean swells.
We decided to risk death by taking pics on the helipad landing point as well.
As dusk approached I anchored The Wallaby and retired to the cabin inside and the restful bed.
It was a surprising and satisfying end to the exploration of Crow's Nest in the Blake Sea.
