I have so many plans and ideas for my new land! The CocoaJava Cafe is coming along well – Rip Wirefly has been of great help, and has produced some amazing devices that are for sale in the Cafe now. I’ve cleaned up a lot of the building, but still have a bit more to do. It’s fun mucking about with it, though. I have eventual plans to lease out the small shop that is a part of the building (it has an entrance facing the side street) and turn the upstairs into a shelter for the homeless. I’ll also be adding a lot of small ‘passthrough’ hotlinks that will effectively turn the space between my SL Cafe and my cocoajava.com website into a wormhole, allowing visitors on both sides to glimpse across the void at each other. I’m loving this.
Here’s some pics! First one was taken the day the land was bought and the building I inherited was dropped on the land.
Next up are two pictures taken last night – as I puttered in the Cafe, a steady stream of friends, neighbors and strangers came through. All stayed a while, chattered amongst themselves, and made me so very, very happy. To have people just wander in and relax a bit, it just warmed my heart! You can click through the pics to my flickr account if you wish to read more about each one.
