Welcome to CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY of OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. 28469!
We are situated off Old Georgetown Road – across from Ocean Ridge Plantation – this also – parts of it – is Ocean Ridge.
Across that street is home to the BIG CATS golf courses of Ocean Ridge.
YES – there is wildlife here – I have seen Turkey and Deer – among the trees and houses here.
I have seen Gators in the ponds and some have seen snakes( I saw a large Blacksnake) while others have seen Copperheads.
I suppose raccoons and possums – I have seen Eagles and large hawks – a really big red-headed woodpecker.
While we are country – we are about two miles to three different grocery stores –
multiple bars and grills and many other shops.
AND – we are on the mainland side of the ICW and minutes away from Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset beach.
In other words – I think we have it all right here!
We all are hoping for a SPRING finish date – a place to gather – exercise and relax by the pool.
Until that is finished – we have had a few get together’s at outside sources –
The latest outside was at Rivers Edge Golf Course in Shallotte N.C.
And then we had a DRIVEWAY COCKTAIL PARTY at Diane and Steve’s house at the bottom of Waterway and Lindley.
The invites were neighborhood-wide through the Cameron Woods Community Facebook site.
Cameron Woods is almost done with Phase Two – and an even larger Phase Three will begin under the new company LENNAR! There is guess’s that will not end there as some of the new roads in the next phase ends at the tree lines! No Cul-De-Sac – just like it will continue on!
Thanks for reading Papa’s World – CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY – OLD GEORGETOWN ROAD – 28469 – N.C.
I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.
I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !
It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.
It was important for me to stay active and play golf.
Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.
We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – it has been the income that has provided us the time to stay where we are.
We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same – all the while being paid to do it !
You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan. Ours – we planned 13 years ago and have stayed the course.
Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.
My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.
Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.
We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.
Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy life style.
In October we will travel to Austin Texas – where we are planning to watch our daughter Debby be promoted to National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company – when she will make a full time income she could not of made in the Corporate World ! With extremely generous benefits – and help for college tuition for all three of her children.
Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.
We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.
It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.
