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....
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?
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:
