Tuesday Travelogue-April 21st

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our forty-seond week! (I remember the 40s, they were wonderful!)  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.) Mississippi here we come....

I had to reach way back in the archives to come up with some localism posts with photos!  This was from 2007! Called Photo Story, I really liked all of the pics that M. Suzi Woods (Gravenstuk) shows us of Long Beach MS.


How about a fun state fair? This  151st one was held in Jackson MS. Thank you, Pat Starnes from 2010! 

Big Swing at the State Fair

This really drew my eye, the title take a day off on the Mississippi River was right up my alley (from 2010)! Thank you SO much, Steve Baklaich!

Welcome to Como MS! Ever heard of it? Me, neither!! Here ya go. 1500 strong in the Delta! Thank you, for the experience of the history,  Pam Simpson (from 2010!)

Good morning Gayle. These are terrific. I can't imagine how long it must have taken to find these again. Terrific. I just read them all and enjoyed them. The last one however is in Clark, NJ.

Gayle-This series does have you researching the archives of bloggers. Probably some of them no longer blog. Great trips and a stroll down memory lane. Hard to believe you started this 42 weeks ago. Time flies.

Hi Gayle - Nice choice this week. When I lived in the south, Mississippi was pretty much a drive-thru state, except when I was going to school in New Orleans, we'd often hit the beach, and a local women's college, in Gulfport for a getaway.

I have never been there, but I remember singing the song M-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-crooked letter-crooked letter-I-humpback-humpback-I in order to remember how to spell it, haha.

Nice way to dig up some travel posts - and you're giving life to old blogs. I will try to take a look at these spots when I can catch up. Enjoy the afternoon, Gayle.

Good evening girlfriend! The American South is so interesting and Mississippi is one of those states in the deep south, filled with a long history, lots of diversity and one of the most powerful rivers in the world.  Just ask Mark Twain!! Thanks for bringing us along on your travels my dear
