Papa’s World – I finally took pictures of the gator in our pond where we now live!

Down at the end of this street in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – is our pond – and home to a six foot GATOR!

I have seen it a couple times – but never all of “IT”!

We decided at near sunset – 7:30 pm. after watching the BMW golf tournament –

to take a walk down and around the pond.

Hoping we would see the GATOR!

Well – we did and it was laying on some grass and weeds about 75 feet from the edge of the pond!

The reflection of the houses on the water and right in the middle it lays!

I am guessing 5 to 7 feet long when the tail is out straight!

It never moved and in the fading light – I had to look twice to make sure!

So we walked along the path to see it at different angles! And it never moved!

I had the feeling it was watching us!

We have now seen it at different times – but never all the way out of the water.

At least I have taken a picture of it!

Papa’s World – In the South – you live and golf by gators – you better be careful!

At our new home in Cameron Woods – sunrise from the front porch – at the end of this street is a pond – and a 7 foot gator lives there!
Our home – living in the South has taught me to be careful – look everywhere – snakes – spiders and gators!

I am careful where I step – I constantly look ahead – ticks are also abundant here!

But – we choose to be here – the weather is warm – but I am a warm weather person!
We finally went for a walk into the new section under construction – and found the big pond we were told about!

If you look real close – you can just see the eyes and nose of this little fellow!

He or she was about 2 1/2 feet long – just a baby – but WHERE WAS MOMMA?

We did not hang around to find out! When we started to walk away – it started to swim directly toward where we had stood! When we stopped – it stopped and when we started walking again – it swan to the bank and we could not see it! TIME TO LEAVE – and just WHERE WAS THE MOMMA!
GOLFING – we almost always see gators – so we stay away from the water!
YES – there are gators in these ponds!
As we drove by this pond on the golf cart – and I also watch out for snakes – although I have yet to see one!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – golfing Magnolia Greens – home course of friends – beautiful!

Sherry and Cindy – they decided to walk the 18 holes – Sherry got a new pull cart!

I actually believe these 27 holes compare to the best in the area including Myrtle Beach!

On this day – the flowers were in full bloom and reminded me of Augusta!

Almost every hole was like this!
A view of the driving range from the outdoor patio of the clubhouse!
Sherry Cindy and Buck – having a beverage on the outdoor patio after 18 holes!
On one of the tee boxes – everything was blooming!

We have played this course many times over the years!

They have called this home for at least twenty years.

Having bought and sold and built here many times.

This is the main reason we came South to this general area.

Our new home will be about 40 minutes away –

so daily golf is available!

Sherry on the patio of their home that overlooks one of the large waterways on the course!
Cindy on the same patio of their home looking in a different direction from Sherry!
Cindy was to the left – Sherry to my right and Buck straight across from me – looking at the course across the water!

This is the second home they have built here – both in this water area and both had like views –

only this one is downsized from the other one.

Buck and I on the tee box about to tee off!

We – Buck and I – did our usual scramble – and we had a record for us – we shot a 39 with a double boogie the last hole!

If you are ever in N.C. just South of Leland and Wilmington – this is a public course – 27 holes – stop in and make a tee time – it will surprise you and you will love it – one of the best around the area!

HEALTH and NUTRITION fruits – vegetables – berries – omegas in a capsule.

Papa’s World – Rivers edge – golfing with friends – we finally beat them!

Cindy and Sherry – one will walk and then change up for the other to drive.

We started off in the rain – but the forecast said it would move on out –

and the sun and warmth would be there!

AND THAT IS JUST WHAT IT DID!

One of the views – we had to cross over here – but it was not a busy road.

Are there Gators here? YES THERE ARE!
Sherry Buck Cindy about to putt!

We played well – Buck and I – enough so that they beat us by one stroke the first nine and we won by three stokes the back nine. Do not be fooled by how close they made it – they are always right down the middle and second shot is either on the green or close to it! They are good when in a scramble!

We bought what is called the first tee card – we all have them and it allows us to play over 32 courses

at reduced rates – all are on the N.C. side of the border – and our new house is right in the middle!

Sherry going for the green on a par three over the marsh.
Cindy going for the green over the marsh.

I did not like this tee box as it was like a practice mat.

The only part of the whole course that they did this on.

You could not put a tee in – only if you found a seam.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World.

It was a fun day – and because it was cart path only –

it took us five hours to play and we did not finish up until 6:00 PM.

But – we finally beat them on the back nine by three strokes and it was hard doing that!

Papa’s World – Alligator adventure – Family Krohn

One of the things they wanted to do was see alligators!

And here in North Myrtle Beach is a place called ALLIGATOR ADVENTURE!

There are hundreds of the reptiles in there!

The biggest being 20 feet long and weighing 2000 lbs. !

This is a picture of a alligator being fed by one of the employees! This was not the really big one!

They got to watch the feeding – I wonder how they feed all these alligators and how they make sure all get fed!

They even had a albino alligator!

They have other animals – birds and snakes!

These weighed 3 or 4 hundred pounds and there were three of them!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Papa’s World – Oyster Bay – Golf and “ALLIGATORS”!

Alligator laying in the backyard of someones house! Across the water from the putting green!

Our friends – Jim – Dottie – Buck and Cindy – came for a visit!

And we planned to golf two different days!

The last day was at Oyster Bay – not very far from Calabash

The Seafood capital of the world

and home to many – many “GATORS” on the course!

BIG GATORS!

Jim & Buck

We had a gals vs guys match

and off we went –

I had listened to other players who had finished

talking to the starter about the “GATORS”

and how big they were!

Just laying there almost seemed it was dead until it moved its head!

We saw them a lot – esp. on the middle holes!

The ladies putting behind us – we were able to tell them where the “GATORS” were.

One par three – surrounded by water – except a small walking path

lined with flowers and tall bushes

kind of sketchy walking through there

had a drop zone right next to the green.

And a large sand trap.

Well – right next to the drop zone lay a six foot gator!

Dottie actually hit her ball and it landed on the green and rolled into the drop zone!

Where she left it for some future golfer to find as it ws too close

to that six foot gator!

We had a good time regardless –

you just did not look for golf balls as I think snakes are also here!

Me taking a picture of Jimmy taking a picture of two gators – one to his left and one to his right – the one on the left was very big!
Cindy about to hit from the fairway – they are always in the middle which makes it so hard to beat them!
Sherry lining up her putt – they also are always putting for either birdie or par!
Jimmy hitting his Tee shot. Look close in the middle just between the fairway and trees – his ball going down the middle!
Dottie playing her approach shot two strokes from there for par.
The “GATOR” laying next to the sand trap and drop zone!
They pared this hole!
Beautiful but a lot of “GATORS” in there!
People live here despite the “GATORS”!

We enjoyed this course despite the “GATORS”

being a fun course to play.

Lots of fairways and marsh – small lakes – water everywhere!

Again right down the middle!
My co – pilot – Buck!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Sherry and Cindy – Dottie walked to her ball

And yes – on the course called OYSTER BAY!

With all the “GATORS”!

It came down to the last hole – number 18 !

We had a boggy – long par 5 – missed putt and they pared!

GALS ONE UP AFTER 18

35 to 36!

70 to 71 !!!!!

I told you Jimmy – they are too good!
