Houseboat Community in SL Chelsea

While I have been waiting for my apartment to be finished in SL Chelsea, which has been delayed because of the resurfacing of the roads in the sim, I often go back there for a wander round. The roads are looking fantastic, complete with box junctions and mini roundabouts and it's all looking very smart. I love the Chelsea sim and it's a great place to live, it just feels right! that little bit away from Knightsbridge with its busy high street, Chelsea has a real atmosphere about it. It looks like I will be moving back pretty soon now, the new apartments are beautiful and I can't wait to get my furniture sorted.

When I went back yesterday I decided to walk along to where the houseboats are moored, as I'd had a great time living on one of the boats when I first moved to SL London. In those days I had been the only person to rent a houseboat as it had all been very new. However, when I went back yesterday I noticed that the majority of them are now occupied and it all looks wonderful along there. People have added bits and pieces to personalise the boats and it's a proper little community now. I noticed one houseboat had been decorated for Halloween as well, which looked great. I am looking forward to Christmas in the London sims, I'll be getting my Christmas decs out pretty soon, once I move back to my lovely Chelsea.

Janey, I am one of your many Virtually London (lite) fans, so it was quite a treat to see my little halloween decorations featured on the blog today! Especially since I found my cozy SL home with your help. I was curious to see the houseboats in Chelsea after reading your Sept. 20 feature on Selina Cazalet's narrowboat. When I walked down the wharf I immediately knew I had found the SL home for me! I only moved in a week ago, but already I've met such nice people and learned a tremendous amount about navigating SL. As a newbie I was at first overwhelmed by the vastness of SL. There's so much to see, learn, and explore it's hard to know where to begin. But Chelsea has been a really welcoming home. I really can't imagine living anywhere else!!! Anyone who wants to come hang out and enjoy the view (and seasonal decorations) is always welcome.

I would also like to welcome you as a newbie and hope that you enjoy your adventures in SL, it's a lot of fun!
