Tuesday Travelogue-January 6th 2015

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-seventh week (not to mention a new year--woohoo)! 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 the march across America alphabetically we are now in the state of Florida! What better getaway for some of us who are looking at rainy, dark and dreary weather or lots and lots of snow....so grab your suntan lotion and your shorts and here we go!

(I decided to do five today, because Florida is BIG and there are many ActiveRainers there. I may have to do this for a couple of weeks).

These first two are welcoming us into the new year...

Many of you know the Star of Delray Beach....

delray beach

I may not even have to tell you who she is, but for those very few who don't know Kathy Streib, here is your introduction! A great way to start off the New Year Tuesday Travelogue

 


Barbara-Jo Roberts takes me away, too...to sunny vistas, bass fishing and Tarpon Springs, Florida!

The video of traveling these waters and the low grumbling sound of the motor and the birds in the background are so inviting....

 

What do you think of first when thinking of Florida? Beaches, right? How about palm trees?

Marco Giancola takes us on a short trip through his memory of palm trees...a different take on Miami Beach (sorry, no scantily clad women...)

 

Donald Urschalitz is a big one for doing localism posts about Jupiter, FLA...he is obviously passionate. The posts don't always have pictures, but this one and this post from October of 2014 was special for him. I love this photo and what they did here!

 

Surprisingly, I had a hard time finding localism posts with lots of stunning pictures of Florida. It took me most of the day to do this. Maybe I should take heed of what Jon Zolsky in Daytona Beach is saying about the elusive art of living simply?

Simple Living

Kathleen Daniels, I have part of my soul on a beach somewhere, too! It keeps moving around, tho....

Dick Greenberg --I am the worst kind of weather sadist....whipping people with sunshine....

Gary Woltal , I know FLA is a place you go...but is it because of family??  Did you live in all of these places? You've been around, my friend! (I know that you lived in OR at some point).

Belinda, I was VERY happy to go there today....

Judith Parker I can only pay homage to those who photographed it for me!

Sharon, lucky lady, you!!

Sharon Tara oh aren't YOU the lucky one?!!! Do tell!! Post, please!!!

Kathy Streib, without a DOUBT you were the very first person I thought of when I discovered that this was my next destination across America. I could have had at least 19 travel posts of yours, but this was one I bookmarked just for this occasion! (And where ELSE in FLA did you visit? I better head over to your blog to see...)

6 degrees in Virginia???  Better get out there and take some photos,  Rob Thomas!

Gayle - funny, you confuse me, Jon Zolsky, with JHon Kolsky, a fellow Activerainer in California. Ricchie Naggar got so confused one time, that he even wrote a post about too Jons.

Gary, mystery solved. 

Jon Zolsky, Daytona Beach, FL --geez, don't all guys named Jon who live in sunny states go by the same last name??  And look alike??? I deeply apologize, I was pretty tired by the time I finally got this darned thing put together. It has been fixed!

Time to leave the snowshoes behind, Ed Silva!

Gayle, thanks for choosing to showcase these great places in FL, though I live in FL I have to drive about two hours to the beach but so worth the drive when I'm able.

Beth Atalay, I would love to have one of your travel/localism  blogposts if I could have one of the ones you suggested to me have a few photos--that would be great!

Joe Petrowsky--watch what you wish for, my dear!!! 

Marco Giancola, I saw the beach photo, but since it was Cuba, I'll have to wait on that one....

Donald Urschalitz, thank you for your enthusiasm and continual localism post--I don't people realize what an impact it can have on putting your niche on the map.

Glad to hear it, Brian!

Sharon Tara, sometimes I can be really patient!  But, you better give me a heads up before NH comes up...geez, I guess that'll be awhile.
