As you know from part 7, I tried to fly over the the South coast of Corsica in order to find waters easier to sail. I tried several times but did not succeed to reach that airport close to sailable waters. Either I got kicked out from security orbs or crashed into skxboxes.
I tried one last time and decided, if it doesn’t work out this time, I will walk to the shores. Almost, I almost reached my target, but crashed yet again into some rubbish in the sky. At least I was wearing my parachute, so at least I had a fun glide down to the grid.
Down on the ground, I saw saw a typical mainland scenery. Several parcels being build with weird stuff on it, even with wall paper around parcels, banlines and nothing actually fits together:
But I saw the sea! Not to far away I could see the shores of that ocean connecting Corisca to Nautilus again. At least that is what I thought it is. I also saw a bit further down a huge tree and something that looked like a garden. The closer I got to that parcel, the more curious I became. Finally I arrived on a huge parcel with beautiful gardens, waterfalls, caves, a superb beach on which one is even allowed to rez. Fantastic, here I can rez my boat and continue my journey.
But before I did so I strolled alone this place with Leo (who I Tped over) and took some pictures for you

We decided to move on. I rezed the boat and off we went. It was then that I realized: Fuck, I didn’t make it to the ocean, there are tow regions between us and open waters. But we were lucky, we found a passage through those regions in our way. It was tricky to move the boat there as it was very narrow passage. I actually used the engine not the sails.
Finally we reached the open waters of Nautilus, yeah! Setting sail and a strong East wind lead us with 9 kts average speed to the shores of Nautilus.
At a small yacht club on its Western coast I moored the boat. I actually felt as if I had traveled in time. This marina looked like Second Life in 2007. Those of you who have been in SL that year might remember those guys with a small penis syndrome. Those who compensated their lack of manhood with huge luxury motor yachts, pretending to be part of the rich and famous society.
Those yachts do not actually move. They simply stand stand there in a marina and serve their respective owners as a home. Fine with me. Those guys hire escorts. I might actually make some money in this port.
By the way:
You can rez boats in the marina. I great place to discover the water ways of Nautilus.
