Papa’s World – journey to a surprise birthday!

We were packed to the ceiling in the car

and on top – it was also packed.

We had to have five months worth of “STUFF”

as we had rented a condo in North Myrtle Beach

for that period of time.

But first – a stop for a surprise birthday party!

Our friends in Magnolia Greens – just outside Leland N.C.

A 15 minute drive to downtown Wilmington N.C.

Buck – was turning 70!

He had no idea we were coming!

We were neighbors starting in 1986

we had known them before that

Being retired – Buck – Sherry and myself

It does not matter about the weekend.

However – Cindy – the youngster of the group

still works!

But – that did not stop her from inviting us to stay

until we moved into the condo

the following Thursday!

And we played golf three different times!

We celebrated Buck’s birthday the whole time we were there!

Her specialty is making Moscow Mules!

And she grows her own mint!

We also have always had a golf challenge

Guys vs. Gals.

And we do this also with other close friends.

So – over the course of five days

we played three times

a total of 45 holes of golf!

We went out to dinner a few times and lunch

And we brought some wine with us

Now – I am not so much for wine

but this was a anniversary issue from Coopers Hawk

and I did find it to be to my tasting!

They have a beautiful new home that Cindy designed

and was part of every single step in the process!

It sits on a point of land
With ponds and channels on three sides

And the 27 hole golf course right across the pond.

I have always loved it here

and it is on my bucket list of places to move to.

Time will tell –

A surprise birthday party

golfing with friends

a few drinks and laughs

at a lovely home and great friends.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

and in this case

FRIENDS ARE FAMILY!
