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!
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:
