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.
Please don't forget to comment on these blog posts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels.
