Tuesday Travelogue September 26th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Oh, my, I'm SO overdue with updating this travelogue series! Bad girl!! The last one was August 22nd. Been travelling a lot myself, and just haven't had the time. My apologies. Let's get traveling! 

Welcome to the ongoing series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 137th 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!

 

I must be an eternal kid at heart, because primary colors always make me happy and Myrl Jeffcoat delivers this in spades with her Reno Balloon Races. What fun!

We are still "high up", but this time visiting a gorgeous lighthouse on the island of Kilauea in Hawaii. Jeff Dowler took some eye-popping photos and this pictorial is not to be missed.

Now we head to The Big South, but it's not the south you may be thinking of! Shirley Cicero takes us along on her hike in Larimer County, along the Poudre River. Come visit Colorado! 

 

 

Now, after balloon races first thing in the AM, then taking the stairs up to the top of the lighthouse and a  good long hike in Colorado, don't you want to get some great food and have wonderful lodgings to complete your day? Well, you will have to head to Louisiana for this overnight stay! Nottoway Plantation, here we come. Faye Schubert is our guide.

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

 

Travellers in the Rain!

Oh, I know how being busy and not getting to things you love to do is, Gayle!

Great suggestions and I have to say, I am in love with Jeff's lighthouse photo - there's that water passion again!

Happy Tuesday, Gayle!

Lottie Kendall you beat me to it, this AM...didn't get to tell the *featured* writers til after you delighted them with your comments. What a good woman you are! That hike in Colorado looks so fabulous. As do all of these travel destinations today.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty virtually traveling is at least a good start! I am thankful to these four for their great photography skills. Makes my job easier!

Jeff Dowler you always supply me with great material. Keep it up. This was one of your best!

I know,  Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® when I looked back and saw August 22nd, yikes, I thought. Shame on me. I used to be so diligent about doing it weekly. Glad you had a moment to come and get some eye-candy!

Hi Gayle,

Well Missy, what are we going to do with you not posting in awhile???

We have such a beautiful country with so much diversity in terrain,  climate, and people!

I must say I am partial to Jeff's pictures of the lighthouse on Kaua'i!!!!  Such a beautiful island, but my parent's would vote for Nottoway as they stayed there and a couple of the other plantations in LA and Mississippi.

Thanks for the opportunity to see America, Gayle!

Belinda Spillman CO pops up often in my travels...virtually only at this point. 

Bruce Walter I was JUST thinking of you the other day! So happy to see you and your Aloha clan back "in the fold". What's not to love about Hawaii?? My hubby and I were married there. Spent our 7 year anniversary there, too, but that was the last time.

I've never been to Kaua'i and I know it's a gorgeous island. Someday! Til then, we will enjoy it through the great eye of people like Jeff Dowler.

Hi Gayle - Thanks for your travel picks, and especially for Shirley Cicero's - it's very close by and a hike we haven't yet done - it looks perfect for fall scenery.

Hi Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate, thank you for giving us the opportunity to travel from the comfort of our seats. All beautiful, inviting pictures. Anything with water grabs my attention for sure.

Dick Greenberg you had just done a market report on the Poudre area and I was going to ask you how to pronounce it and then I wandered off to your Weird Twitter post, and didn't go back. It was ironic that in about 24 hours' time, I came upon that very same word/area again! You'll have to take some hiking photos of your own and let us know about it. 

Beth Atalay water is always alluring for me, as you know!

Sharon Lee you world traveller, you! You've got quite the list going so far. BTW, did you ever get John Steinbeck's book Travels with Charley in Search of America?? Here is a link to my very favorite bookstore where you can order a used one (really inexpensively). I love Powell's Books!

Sharon Lee it's an amazing tale of nonfiction. I liked this far more than Grapes of Wrath, frankly! 

Kathy Streib and this is why I continue to seek those travellers of ours in this social network. They offer great fodder for us virtual travellers.

We're heading to Denver soon and will be enjoying some Fall hikes. It's our annual trek for Kelsea's birthday and getting in those Colorado mountains is a passion we all share. Even Rae Rae.   I'll have to check out the trail Shirley posted about...

Brian England you just crack me up!!! Thanks for being a faithful follower. 

Rebecca Gaujot these are great photos and it's fun to be the messenger in passing them onto others. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD maybe you'll meet Dick Greenberg on that hike??  "Rae Rae", I love that. So sweet. She certainly is following in the footsteps of the generations of active women who have proceeded her. (I forget what your name is, is it Oma? Whatever it was, I thought it sounded so sweet). Happy Trails!
