Fishhawk Lake-Tuesday Travelogue August 5th

 

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our eighth week! Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:

 

" to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

and hopefully much more!

We are going around the world this week....bring your passport!

 

hollisJoan Whitebook takes us to small-town America and totally back in time to historic beauty and quaintness. Let's go visit Hollis, New Hampshire ,shall we?

Susan Emo offers us a sumptuous look at  a "wildlife haven" that actually is for sale (something I don't normally spotlight in Tuesday Travelogue)....this slide show is pack full of stunning beauty on private Tim's Lake in Hartington , ON Canada. 

 

Art in Ladonia Shall we create art (made entirely of driftwood)  in the middle of nowhere known as LadoniaDonald Hester takes us on a journey to a creative Scandinavian place that really IS a micronation. I loved the quote he used, “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Saint Augustine

 

US Virgin Islands In looking around our "Resources" category and "Local Info" as the subcategory on ActiveRain, I happened upon the US Virgin Islands. This photo invited me in immediately, along with the title Hidden Gems...Tanya Van Blake-Coleman took me back to my days of sailing in the US Virgin Islands...and reminded me of what the #1 value of a Hidden Gem is...

Please be sure and take the time to comment on these blogposts!

 

 I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. Please feel free to join our group

Travelers in the Rain!

This is a great idea for a series Gayle. It is so interesting to see what is happeing in other parts of the country and learn something you could not learn unless your were an Active Rain Member.

Gayle, I love this series as it gives me great ideas for new places to visit.  This micro-nation in Ladonia sounds so exciting and to have something made of driftwood rather than legos in Scandinavia is very interesting!

I will take some time to do a bit of traveling via these posts. The weather has been so fabulous, and I've been outdoors a lot lately. Can't seem to sit in front of a computer screen for long. Picked blackberries with a pal and our dogs this morning. I LOVE summer.  But, I love learning about new places, so I will visit these posts.

Nice photos as always, Gayle!  Love the mists in the second photo, and the color of the water in the fourth one.

Donald, you're such a lucky guy to travel abroad! And we're the lucky recipients of your travels without spending any money!

Debb, for a brief moment I got out in the sun to garden...actually WEED...oh, well, it felt good to have the sun beating down on my back while working. Took a run with the pups early this AM, so you and I are BOTH indulging when we can. Kinda thought this would be an easier day re: real estate--NOT!!

Mryl, Susan Emo had SO many fantastic photos, that I kept thinking, should I choose that one, or THAT one??  I just kept coming back to this one. I'm a misty-eyed girl, too, so there you are--we're in sync! (And the colors of the water in the Caribbean are not to be replicated...I LOVED it there.)

Patricia, it inspires me, too! Some of these places pull at my heart and I just want to immediately be transported there. Time travelogues I don't have a lock on...YET!

A~it was so wonderful to revisit that memory for me...the most beautiful waters I think I've ever experienced. Bare-boating at Christmas in the Caribbean--to die for!

Debbie, it seems that several are really enjoying this series and I hope to not run out of Travelers in the Rain!

James, I loved the reggae music, but got a bit tired of Jingle Bells in reggae everywhere I turned--but that was about the only negative.

Good morning, Joe! Glad to take you along, my friend.
