Tuesday Travelogue-May 31st

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 93rd 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 the holiday was one that many spent taking time off from real estate business (however much or little that was), it seemed fitting to show off some of  the places that ActiveRain bloggers went and things that they did. 

Moments of spiritual serenity immediately made me feel calm and hopeful. We can all use this in our respite from this crazy business! Ron and Alexandra Seigel bring us these moments in some beautifully photographed scenes.  


This photo totally represents how monumental the true meaning of Memorial Day can be for all of us in this country. It is haunting. Thank you for your tribute and your volunteerism, Nicole Doty.

Snow in California for Memorial Day weekend??  HUH?? This actually was seen and photographed by Myrl Jeffcoat back in 2010. Be glad this didn't occur this year!

Thanks for mentioning me in your Tuesday's Traveler's in the Rain.  I cannot believe it's been six years since we had snow on the ground on Memorial's Day.  If I remember correctly, it was the year before the great drought hit California.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hello, beautiful! I was on my walk on Greasy Spoon Rd (always a great place for reflection) and came up with this idea, as I suddenly realized it was Tuesday Travelogue time! Actually, yours was my jumping off point, thank goodness. 

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert I always love visiting your posts, and this one was so darkly beautiful. Had to spotlight it!

Sharon Lee it seemed only fitting, doncha think??

Tammy Lankford, it was fairly easy pickin's this week! Trying to get back in the swing of things because  biz has been wild crazy and I don't feel that I've been able to spend quality time on AR. Thought of you today on my walk with the dogs while on Greasy Spoon Rd, so it was pretty cool that you commented! 

Myrl Jeffcoat that was waaaaay too interesting to pass up! A bit unusual and now with your further perspective, too bad that it doesn't happen more often.

Sooooooo, Rick Obst that is remarkably astute of you to notice! Gosh, I hadn't really thought of that and have been quite remiss in looking at my count. It's actually not that far to go, huh? How did you discover that only 171 have made that mark to date?
