A beautiful beach is worth 2 sand terrain textures

The name “Isla Okiddo” on Second Life’s recommended destination list caught my eye, because if something’s an island, wouldn’t it have a beach? It does have a beach, and a very handsome beach, with waves and some nice beach features (beachures?) by Alex Bader of Skye Studio.

One subtle feature that you don’t see very often is the use of two different terrain textures to make the sand beach. Because sim owners get only 4 textures to play with on the land tool, it shows real commitment to dedicate 2 of those 4 to creating a wet-sand-to-dry-sand gradient. Absolutely worth it, in SecondLifeBeach’s opinion!

Strawberry Singh did a very nice write-up with info I’m not going to duplicate here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2014/02/28/weekly-roundup-friday-find-isla-okiddo/

If you love lovely beaches, go make a visit yourself. Just be aware that it’s rated Adult and listed on the front page of the website, so you may encounter, for example, a day-old giant crude bunny rabbit looking for action. He’s in the wrong place, but you’re not.
