Tuesday Travelogue-March 22nd

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 85th 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!

Since I just spent a week with family all over Florida, which is a beautiful state, it seemed fitting to highlight it in this week's Tuesday Travelogue. Here are some different ways to spend time in Florida. 

Ever been to a Winter Equestrian Festival? Florida in winter is a perfect getaway for those who want to shake off the cold. Guided by palm trees and stunning water views, this is a different take on spending some time in Florida, thanks to Nestor and Katerina Gassett taking us on a "ride" along.

Fred Griffin just talked about a family reunion in Venice, FL for a fishing trip and since the wedding event my husband and I attended was similar, this was another connection to Florida that I felt would be appropriate.  Lots of fun and family time, with "fotos and fish". (Read his blog to see what kind these are).

Winston Heverly gave me a very interesting skyview of a winter event in South Florida...The Christmas Boat Parade in Fort Lauderdale (one of my family destinations). Check this out!



One of my favorite bloggers for always delivering spectacular localism posts is Kathy Streib in Delray Beach Florida. You want a great collection of beach sunrises and sunsets as well as things to do? Kathy's the best! (And we got to visit a St. Paddy's Day parade with this post, as well.)

I'll end with a photo I took of an Osprey who was nesting (and being quite raucous while waiting for food--thus the photo with its mouth open) on a boat sign several hundred feet off of my mom's dock in Homosassa Springs FL, a small community on the Gulf coast of Florida...really beautiful and I will blog about it soon.

Thanks, everyone for stopping by...been a very busy time before vacation/during and now! Not much time to catch up w/my AR friends and this took all day to finally "publish". 

We just picked up our new mule, Della this morning and brought her home to get acclimated...a half-day after returning from FLA and putting "sold" on a property as well as setting up new appts. with clients and getting two new listings--just another day in paradise!

Looks like you had a fabulous time in Florida - between family and the wild life - it must have been really hard to leave but you got back to your new mule Della so you must be happy!!!

Gayle, isn't Florida great?  You can never run out of things to see and do. 

Thanks for including my hometown of Venice in this Travel Blog!

Gayle, what a wonderful collection of photos!  The Christmas boats might be my favorite, but it is really hard to choose a fave.

How appropriate that you would feature Florida right after you return from there.  Where are your photos?

Good morning Gayle. I'm not a huge traveler but Florida is one place I do hope to make one day. That and New York but I've got some convincing to do with Josh on that one.

Joanna Cohlan I DID have a fab time in FLA and took copious amounts of photos. Other than the airport stuff, I LOVE to travel and experience new places! You're blessed to be able to do that often. 

Endre Barath, Jr. that's a TALL order, my friend. I have no idea where we're going next week--stay tuned!

Fred Griffin I TOTALLY agree. I will not be there in the summers--the humidity kills me, but the winters, absoLUTELY. 

Roger D. Mucci I've been having a terrible time lately stating (quickly) what date/day it is! Geez, I hope it's not catching. 

Patricia Kennedy weren't those a FIND?? I loved this photo.

Ed Silva I have scads of photos, but many are of family and I have just posted some of those after editing--that certainly takes awhile with each one. Later I'll create something--have to get my head back in the game. I just had a home inspection this AM and much to do with closings and new listings...

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I got a pretty cool video of two of them, but haven't downloaded it yet in youtube. I was quite excited to have a camera that could shoot that far off clearly! This one was VERY vocal. Thanks for appreciating it!

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert more and more I am appreciating FL in the spring months as I go there. My mom's place is only 3 miles from a Manatee Rehab Center and I've been swimming with them...they are still endangered, I believe. NYC is coming in May for me! I'm going to visit my wonderful galpal Joanna Cohlan!

Brian England I'm jealous! I would LOVE to put "meeting Kathy Streib" on my bucket list.

MIlan, What Not To Renovate - Milan B. yes, through the years, I've gotten a fair taste of what Florida has to offer having many relatives there, but it has been YEARS since I/we (my husband and I) have been able to go together. We found an amazing house/pet sitter and that's what gave us the chance to fly together for the first time since 2007!!

You're back! Hope it was wonderful and romantic, I know you and Larry haven't been away together for a while. Well-deserved. I'll take a look at the Florida spots in a bit - trying to hustle for a meeting at 10AM. :)
