Heart Reef Park Revisited

About a year ago, I wrote about a short-lived sim created by kenny Humby, and I'm delighted to report that as of today it has been rebuilt: Heart Reef Park, a playful interpretation of Santorini and Mykonos. It's a colorful island filled with whimsy and delight, with rows of little shops and houses, and occupants in various poses or pastimes. You won't spot any mesh here: kenny even uses two dimensional photographs throughout, and to fun effect, such as the snoozing grocer in the image below (click to zoom in). Experimenting with windlight will provide lots of options for photography.

One of the most enjoyable ways to explore is to take advantage of the many automated tours that are offered, mostly for couples (but possible for solo use as well): a donkey ride, a balloon ride, a piggyback tour (which Cica Ghost and I are trying out as I type this), a swimming tour and so on — for most you'll need to join the land group, which is free. You might also encounter a couple of robotic residents of the sim, Zenigata Gearhead and James Bond, who are sometimes around, roaming about. Don't forget to leave a contribution if you're so inclined.
