Hi all — Thursday Sept. 28 is the Grand Opening of Mieville sister sim Anuenue! The landing spot for the event is the KatGarten area; the event will take place from 5:00pm -7:00 pm SLT. Plan to attend!
Grand Opening Host and Owner Jamie Peterson has created Anuenue (Hawaiian for "Rainbow", and pronounced ah-new-ee-new-ee) to be "a place of respite for the soul." The public area of Anuenue is known as Enchanted Isle and includes a welcome center, several shops, social spots and areas to explore, hang out, and enjoy. (And in case you were wondering, Jamie's region was formerly known as Scarbbethia and in June was rebranded and redesigned as Anuenue to better fit Jamie's vision.)
As you visit, please be aware that Anuenue includes both public areas and some private homes. Please do refrain from entering any private residence unless you are invited in by its resident. Also, all are requested to please refrain from flying above 500 meters at Anuenue. And like Mieville, Jamie reminds that Anuenue is rated Moderate but treated as PG in public areas. Thank you for complying!
Now, let's tour some of the highlights of Anuenue's Enchanted Isle public areas!
Anuenue is located to the north of the Mieville microcontinent.
It's helpful to consult your Mini-Map during your first few visits, particularly as you explore beyond the Shopping Plaza area.
The Welcome Center is the main landing spot. You'll see on your Map that you are in the southeast corner of the region. Just outside the doors of the Center is the Anuenue Shopping Plaza, where you'll find familiar shops from many of our friends:
Middle row, L-R: Simply Sebastian by Sebby Tiogar and Candy Castle by Jamie Peterson
Bottom row, L-R: The Rainbow Phoenix by Jamie Peterson and All Things Beautiful by Silver Aster
Walking toward the northeast quadrant of the Anuenue region, you'll spot waterfalls and an old bridge that leads to a small isle. Here is the location of Perryn's Memorial, a beautiful and serene spot dedicated to Mieville's founder and leader Perryn Peterson.
All Mievillians are invited to visit, reflect and pay their respects at the Memorial. It is because of Perryn that Mieville and our traditions exist and how we came to be here together even today. Profound gratitude is due to Perryn, Mr. Mayor, Jamie's husband, and our friend.
Returning through the flower meadows and south of the shopping area: In the southwest corner of Anuenue's Enchanted Isle, there is a pretty beach area with a wooden gazebo and large Tiki bar and grill area with lots of seating right by the ocean front. Adjacent is another seating area with beach lounge chairs and hammocks to rest and enjoy the rejuvenating ocean waters.
Jamie has built a lovely paradise here at Anuenue!
There is SO much more here! Please do attend the Opening if you are able, and plan to visit for your own explorations! My photos cannot do justice to the beauty and tranquility of Jamie's Anuenue!
Again, the details: Grand Opening Sept. 28 from 5:00-7:00pm SLT; arrive at KatGarten area
We wish Jamie and friends all the best at Anuenue! Sincere thanks for sharing this beautiful space with us!
