Tuesday Travelogue-November 25th

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our twentyfirst  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!

(Be sure and click on the links in blue.)

In our alphabetical trips across America, "C" is the letter this week. Let's "C" what I can find in California, for the 2ND WEEK! 

I found a brand new ActiveRain member, who just happens to know quite a bit about wine country in California. Welcome Mark Stornetta and let him tell you why he knows the Napa Valley and wine country!

Napa Valley Vineyards

Let's visit San Franciso, shall we? Jim Patton had a fun post for taking a trip "West" when the weather got too hot back in September...something we won't be seeing for awhile for most of us! A day trip to the "city" that Jim takes us on....

View from Twin Peaks

Myrl Jeffcoat ALWAYS gives me plenty to showcase with her travel blogs. Something you don't get to see (sea?) every day....today, it's the Monterey Bay Aquarium!

Monterey Aquarium

Because William Johnson, in San Diego, is an ActiveRain icon as well as a very accomplished photographer, it was fitting to include him here, but I decided to include TWO of his photos, as one is just too good not to share,

Beautiful Day in San Diego

the other ZOOMS in on the statue in the statue to the right in first photo and explains what it is and a bit of history about it. Called The Kiss...read on....

The Kiss

Please don't forget to comment on these blogposts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. Feel free to join our group:

Gayle, I like the way you highlight all these posts which cover someone's travels. CA is a great place to visit on vacation. As you already can tell Yolanda loves to travel and take lots of pictures.

Gayle, great posts this week with photos of California.  I love the photo of The Kiss and this looks like a great sculpture - Seward Johnson of course -that is emulating the photo!  I am attaching a recent photo I took of a Seward Johnson sculpture, with my husband George, in Philadelphia!  You can use it when you get to the only state that starts with the letter "P"!

R&A~You will make your mark on another one of my Tuesday Travelogues, as you have given us wonderful trysts through California. 

Gary, haven't been to an aquarium in FOREVER.

Sheila Anderson I always love it when you stop by--thanks for the note of appreciation!

Roy, I had my camera in hand, but alas nothing to shoot today!

Robert (Bob) Gilbert , I'll have to be given a heads up when Yolanda and you travel--be sure and join Travelers in the Rain if you haven't already, because that's also where I look for good posts to spotlight.

Jim Patton you are MOST welcome and thanks for giving me something out-of-the-ordinary to feature. 

Rob Thomas , yes DO THAT, please! And give me a heads up when you do!

Tom White that's what I love, enthusiastic virtual travelers who appreciate all of our "familie's efforts!

Oh, Joanna Cohlan you crack me up! What a delight your husband is, too! I'll hope to remember when I finally get to "P" (the state that is, not me!!!)

Sharon, you are most welcome...thanks for goin' on it. 

 Debb Janes a hectic week! I'm writing another offer on another bridesmaid, goin' to the alter. They were "living in sin" there for awhile, but we're gonna make an honest woman out of her yet. Looking forward to OUR road trip to CAllY!!

Some nice locations. We were thinking of going back to Northern CA next year to walk through the redwoods. We saw a similar statue of The Kiss, in Sarasota this past summer as well.

Ed Silva that's what my husband and I will be doing this next Sept! And I believe that William Johnson makes note of this being elsewhere and returning "home" I think.
