Tuesday Travelogue-July 28th

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


 We are on our alphabetical trip across America. We leave my own fabulous state of Oregon and travel three thousand miles east to that state I left in 1979 to move to Oregon. That would be Pennsylvania! 

Take a slow boat ride through history on the Lehigh Canal in Easton PA. This video is simply lovely and as one person interviewed said, "The entire history of transportation can be seen right here". I may have to put this on my bucket list! Thank you, horse lover, Brigita McKelvie!



 Next, we head for music in the clouds....the Philadelphia orchestra in an outdoor concert after a big storm. This little video was just glorious! And the story that lead up to it, Carolyn Roland tells so well. My only wish, that I had either been there, or the video had been longer. 



 Because Pennsylvania is such an old state, I keep finding historical posts about it. This time we learn about the real ground hog on the "most important day in Quarryville, PA!" House Sale Advisors were the authors of this one. 

Another jump back in time...the Phillies and the Yankees in the World Series in 2009. This blogger, a woman, Renee Hoover spells out why baseball, both major and "minor" is an American love affair that will never end. Really beautifully written! 

Watching his Idols

Hi Gayle - I lived in Ridgway, about 100 miles NE of Pittsburgh, on the edge of the Allegheny National Forest. 5K population and a very fun and strange place.

It's wonderful to take a tour from the comfort of my chair. And the musical backgrounds make the trip even more enjoyable. Great job!

well that was a first.  Three bloggers I don't know.  Of course it seems two have been gone for years, but I have no idea how I've missed Brigita

Hey, you guys ROCK! Thanks for supporting the local "travel channel" so-to-speak. Been a busy day and I haven't even said hi to AR til now and it's very late for some of you!

This was one that I thought would be easy, (PA) but it wasn't...darn it. I thought that I had bookmarked some Longwood Gardens posts by Roy Kelley, but I guess I didn't,  Sharon Lee!

My trips through everyone's blogs are fantastical...even if I don't highlight some, I still find many to enjoy. I am particular about the photos, but even then I have to learn to bend when I don't find a lot of localism posts with several pictures. BUT! If the story's good, I'll succumb and copy the one and only photo that accompanies the post.

I love your series! My brother is an architect who lives in Pittsburgh and works down town..I have seen the PPG Plaza..so striking! Now that granddaughter Hailey is going to college at Bucknell and is seeing more than the SW States..an eye opener for sure as her Bucknell  girls volley ball team plays in the Patriot League and  at Colgate, Annapolis, West Point etc.!
