End of Summer – Take Me Away Features (August 2019)

As always, I enjoy reading all the travel posts you have linked up at our monthly Take Me Away Travel Link Party.  Sorry, but I am a little late sharing the features for our August party.  But now that summer has come to an end, I am back in my routine and will stay on top of the features.

Since the party has been growing, I have been experimenting with how I share the features.  This month, I am sharing our “most clicked” post along with a handful of other features. 

Then, beginning with the October party, I will include the features on the same day as the party instead of a separate post.  I hope that doesn’t confuse anyone but I think it will work out better that way.  We’ll see!  Feel free to comment on the format if you have any thoughts.

In addition to the handful of features here on the blog, I will be pinning to my Take Me Away Party Highlights – Pinterest Board.  Also, I will be sharing the features on my Instagram stories.

In the meantime, let’s take a look at the features from our August party…


With summer coming to an end, it wasn’t surprising that a Cape Cod and Nantucket post was the most popular of the month!
