Tuesday Travelogue-December 30th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our twenty-sixth 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 green.)

We are back on board in our alphabetical travels across America. Delaware, here we come. 

Creighton-Jones House, Smyrna DE

Carolyn Roland is an historic home expert and writes about all kinds of localism history and places to visit. I had a grand time perusing her posts. This home in Smyrna is from 1769 and has an interesting history. And did you know this? 

 

"Until December 7, 1787, Delaware was a part of the "Lower 3 Counties" of Pennsylvania".

We are now onto DC....the District of Columbia. Well, I can't even mention that area without IMMEDIATELY thinking of Patricia Kennedy, can you? She normally takes incredible shots of The Capitol, (and if it's Washington it's capital) but THIS was a departure for her. (I would never have looked at this and thought you would see this in DC).

And here is another view and season in DC thanks to our "photoblogger", Pat!

 

Road Trip!

This is EXACTLY the kind of travelogue piece I love to fall upon while putting this series together. Granted, it was written back in 2008, but the pictures and thoughts are timeless! Thank you for taking us along those 2,709 miles, Lanre Folayan. 

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:

The phrase 'road trip' just has such an informal feel to it...

Hi Gayle - where have I been to have missed your on-going series??? Hiding under a rock, I guess. Anyway, I enjoyed this morning's post and stopping by the ones you highlighted. I'm now "following" you so I don't miss the next installment.

That last photo just screams road trip and press that pedal to the floor, unless that's a billboard on the horizon with a cop parked behind it
