Beaches and Lakes – Take Me Away Features – July 2019

Happy August everyone!  With these hot temperatures I hope you are able to cool off at some beaches and lakes this summer.  Over the past couple of months, we have been to the Jersey Shore a few times and are hoping to get back soon.  Luckily, most schools in New Jersey don’t begin until after Labor Day so we still have some time to enjoy the lazy days of summer!

As always, we enjoy reading all your travel posts you have linked up.  Since we had a great turnout for our July Take Me Away Party, I decided to try a new format for my features.  Normally, I like to feature everyone in a recap but each month we get more and more participants…which is actually a good thing!  This time, I am just sharing a handful of features here on the blog but will still pin all the posts to my Take Me Away Party Highlights – Pinterest Board.  In addition, I will be sharing the features on my Instagram stories.

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

  1. Shelley, thanks for featuring my Greek Island cruise post! I’m working on the follow up right now to Santorini and a stop in Turkey. Seeing the other beaches of Greece feature, I’m dying to get back! And living in Pennsylvania, I loved the lake feature too. It’s a great party, thanks for hosting.

    1. You’re welcome, Debbee! I am looking forward to seeing your follow up. I have never been to Greece but it’s definitely on my list!

  2. Thank you so much for the feature! I am so glad that many people get to see this gorgeous lake I not only grew up on but also live at during the summer!

    Thank you once again!

    1. You’re welcome, Nancy! Your photos are beautiful and it really looks like a special place!
