Papa’s World – MEMORIES OAK ISLAND VACATION

Mike Tammy Debby Sherry Taylor Cassidy Ella Maddy

MEMORIES of our week on Oak Island, N.C.

We stayed close to the beach for one week.

The kids were small ( the twins) and the tidal pools were great!

View from our deck as Debby and Tammy return from a run!
Taylor watching her mommy return from a run.

We had a great view of a huge open lot and then one house at the beachfront!

It was a direct walk to the beach entrance.

MEMORIES of OAK ISLAND!

Papa’s World – Thanksgiving day walk on Sunset Beach – N.C.

Sherry and her sister Debbie

Auntie as we call her – came to spend four days with us over Thanksgiving – we kept her busy!

Fat Harolds – Carolina Opry – beach – shopping – Boundry House to eat – Christmas boat flotilla –

Ocean Isle Beach golf cart parade – more shopping and exploring the upper end of OIB.

It was a good four days – tired but got a lot in.

Beach access and Sunset Beach pier.
That would be me and Sherry!
For Thanksgiving day – there were quite a few people on the beach and a couple in the water!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – the Tour of BALD HEAD ISLAND comes to an end – FERRY RIDE back to the mainland.

One last lookup close to OLD BALDY LIGHTHOUSE!

Our time to leave is almost upon us – we turned the golf cart in – almost five hours of riding around!

OLD BALDY LIGHTHOUSE just outside the bike and cart rental!

Be sure if you do this – check out what places to eat are open!

On Wednesday – ONLY ONE WAS OPEN!

Also – find a map – we found one at the Ferry Boat Terminal – you will need it!

If more than two of you – I suggest a cart with seats – facing forward – it is hard to see looking back!

The ride on the Ferry boat!

Sit outside if you can – find the sunshine – and watch for the boats!

A COAST GUARD CUTTER!

I had no idea they patrolled these waters here!

And a large CONTAINER CARGO SHIP!

I did not expect to see this – among the many barrier islands here

and between the mainland and Bald Head Island!

Making me wonder if that is why the Coast Guard is here?

And just how deep is this channel here?

PAPA’S WORLD – BALD HEAD ISLAND, N.C.

Papa’s World – Bald Head Island – beach and departure – one last time on the beach.

Sherry – Diane and Steve

There was hardly anyone here on the beach – in the distance, we could see a few people –

And we watched the fishing boats offshore – some dozen of them –

Soon – we spotted the Dolphins – two pods – they seemed oh so close to the edge of the water.

Diane and Sherry – the only sound was that of the surf.
My view of a quiet lunch sitting on a deserted beach.

Soon – our little tour would be over – I would try to get a golf car where everyone is sitting forward!

It was hard to see as you were always looking backwards –

And – pick up a map at the ferry depot.

You can get mixed up really easily and end up in dead ends!

Diane and Sherry – at the edge of the water.
A bite to eat – advice – on Wednesdays – only one place is open to grab lunch – other days – more places are open.

Papa’s World – BALD HEAD ISLAND – part THREE!

BEACH ACCESS – one of the dozens across the island.
Diane and Sherry after walking up the dune of the beach access.
Sherry – Diane and Steve – the sound of the surf is the only sound.

We found every place we stopped and walked onto the beach to be like these pictures!

Hardly anyone around to be seen!

We could see a dozen fishing ships and Dolphins from the beach.

The island is full of these beach access’s with places to park your golf cart.

BALD HEAD ISLAND also has a marsh side and a boat launch!

We stopped many times to wander and sightsee!

Plenty of time to sit and reflect on our blessing of life!

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – part four will continue the tour of BALD HEAD ISLAND!

BALD HEAD ISLAND PART FOUR – in my next blog – thanks for reading! HGD!!!!!!

Papa’s World – Bald Head Island – part two.

The streets on cul-de-sacs – palm trees and each house have a small little cottage over the golf cart garage!

The streets are two-way – most of them – through the housing – the houses are a mixture of cape-cod and craftsman style. Two stories and little cottages in the front. Most have elevated views of the ocean and many are beachfront.

The ladies – Diane and Sherry – explore the path to the beach and water.
While Steve goes over the map – get a map or you end up in dead ends!

We had the car for about five hours – and also a map to get around. Here we can see where we want to go – but it is on the other side of the channel – we had to retrace our way back to the main road.

The island has a main road that goes all the way around – and many roads into neighborhoods!

They can be dead ends or through a maze of roads cut through to the other side.

So it is best to have the map.

There also is a 18 hole golf course here – we caught glimpses of it through the trees.

One of the many beach access with a place to park the golf cart!

TOURING BALD HEAD ISLAND BY GOLF CART – to be continued in the next PAPA’S WORLD BLOG!

Papa’s World – Walking the beach – small pond small gator and then back home.

One of our pleasures is walking on the beach!

It was warm – 74 degrees – sunny and slight breeze on Ocean Isle Beach.

We try to walk as often as we can – now that most of our traveling is done – company here and gone.

A large fishing boat just offshore.
A lone fisherman – on the horizon more fishing boats and Sherry walking with the reflection of the sun on the water.

Then we made our way home to come across a small pond – not with golf clubs in it – but a GATOR!

This pond is right by the highway – at a red light – and a shopping plaza with a gas station a stone’s throw away!
I pulled into a parking space and was about 30 feet from this GATOR – he looked to be about 4 or 5 feet long!

The pond here is small – maybe 60 feet by 30 feet – a collection pond for runoff water!

I had not seen a gator here before – so it just goes to show do not trust any body of water!

Standing out front of our house – all these except the one have been completed and closed.
The blue sign is in our yard and we are looking West here.

PAPA’S WORLD – HOME FOR THE EVENING – CAMERON WOODS – OCEAN ISLE BEACH

Papa’s World – a cleansing with morning showers and then the Sun for a afternoon walk on the beach

A look outside from our porch – I heard the rain – a drizzle – cleaning everything in the early morning!
A look to the West as the sky is clearing – the next phase to be built is at the end of this street.
A look once again toward the East and the Ocean as the storm clouds continue to move.

It was a nice rain – lasting maybe a hour.

Enough so everything looked fresh and clean and it was a warm rain – 75 degrees at day break!

Then the Sun came out from behind the clouds!

We had the afternoon sunshine and warming up to 82 degrees!

The water has remained warm also at the ocean.

Making it a perfect way to walk the surf and beach!

Sherry stopping to take a picture of a large fishing boat just off Ocean Isle Beach – a ten minute drive for us to reach.
Ocean Isle Beach

Now that we are settled in and almost all of the repairs we listed have been completed

we are trying each day to go to the beach to walk!

It is so relaxing – and there are still people renting homes here!

We at the time I write this – almost one third of the way through October!

And it has been really beautiful weather –

low 70’s at night – 82 to 84 degrees and sunshine in the daytime!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WALKING IN SUNSHINE – PAPA’S WORLD

MY SITE: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog my contact email: fitztdf@aol.com PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – for exercise – walking healthy – our go to spot – the beach!

One of the reason we came South and where we choose to build our home – Ocean Isle Beach.

We tried many areas down here and were drawn to this area in N.C. called Ocean Isle Beach.

We are some eight miles or so to the S.C. border – and we are situated on the mainland –

some four miles inland with the ICW between us and the beach.

We also are close to numerous golf courses – which is another reason we moved South.

We decided as we age – it was time to take it serious – well – we are not good – but love to play!

Opposites attract – that is us!

We tried out NMB in S.C. and really liked it there – but in order to find what we wanted –

we each had a list – it would of cost too much in renovations and thus way over our price point.

Then by accident – we stumbled on to a new community being built.

And we could get everything we wanted – all new – for the price we would of paid before renovations!

And here is one of those things on both our lists – access to a beach to walk each day!

We are in our autumn years – still able to get out and about – and one of those reasons why –

is to maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating and walking.

Sherry is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – and prompts me to stay active.

That also is why we golf – being outside in the fresh air –

four to five hours each time – some walking – we trade off and on – and swinging those clubs(often)

She has run her own internet business from home going on sixteen years.

Very important as you age – to eat healthy and move – my heart doctor always tells me MOVE!

PAPA’S WORLD

WHERE FRIENDS MEET OUR FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS OUR FRIENDS

Papa’s World – relaxing and walking the beach – we have seemed to like one better than the other!

Although Ocean Isle Beach is a ten minute drive – we seem to be going to Sunset Beach more often!

This beach is a extra ten minute drive – 8 miles away.

The difference is one is commercial and the other residential.

One is not flat and the other is.

One is more calm than the other.

Both have piers – both have plenty of parking – at least we have had no problems.

The pier at Sunset Beach – a lot of people sit under it to get out of the sun.

And you can see how calm the water is here and the beach wide and flat at low tide.

You can wade out and only be waist high!

Ocean Isle Beach has bigger waves and the beach is up and down.

There is where the mini golf is – the community park with concerts.

Bars and grills and a community center on the beach with bathrooms.

Sunset beach is almost all beach houses and rentals – hardly any big buildings!

We do go to both – Ocean Isle Beach has a big Farmers market a block from the beach.

Sunset Beach has their market on the mainland side as well as their concerts are mainland.

I like the drive to Ocean Isle Beach better – easier to get to.

Ocean Isle has little shops – and easy to walk around.

Many side streets and channels with houses.

Sunset Beach has a marsh on the South end and is where the Kindred Spirit mailbox is.

With low tide – the beach is really wide.

PAPA’S WORLD – WALKING SUNSET BEACH , N.C.

Papa World – Sunset and night time on Ocean Isle beach with company – ice cream!

Good day!

We decided to take our company to Ocean Isle Beach – play some mini golf –

walk to the ice cream store and then go out onto the beach at sunset!

Eating ice cream on the beach just before sunset!
As we walked out onto the beach – we passed this “WILL YOU MARRY ME” proposal!

The people had gathered waiting for the surprise – we did not see it – but it was beautiful.

Eating the ice cream – no wind – warm – the tide was in.
Our comapny left two dogs home!

It was a fun day – we had gone to Sunset beach in the early afternoon –

then to dinner in Calabash and after here to play mini golf and walk the beach with ice cream!

The sun sinking in the West – dusk near – they had walked to the pier – now it was time to depart!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my site – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog fitztdf@aol.com

And now after sunset – the rising of the moon and the glow across the water!
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – at the beach with the little ones!

Bode – heading out to Taylor and Cassidy at Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

They were so excited to be able to go to the beach each day – and it was hot – so we decided late afternoon

would be a better time to go – and they played the whole three hours in the surf – riding boogie boards

diving under the waves and getting us nervous as they would inch out farther and farther –

until I would wade out and move them back in.

“Papa – can you fasten this”?

Being young as they are is a exercise in pure energy – being old as I am – it was a exercise just to stand and brace against the waves!

But – I loved every moment of it.

Cassidy and Taylor – heading for the waves.

We did this for five afternoons – on the last night before the parents came – it was mini golf and Italian ice!

I – they – we had enough of facing the big waves and Bode wanted to play as soon as they arrived.

The twins actually ended up liking the mini golf and a lot of laughs on how each one putted the ball.

Both as different as they are but the results were the same.

The beach – we decided the last time for them – we would go to Sunset beach – and they loved it!

As did we – less commercial – more level and the sand more fine.

And it was not as rough as Ocean Isle Beach.

Calling them in for a break – away from the big waves which they were in.

Taylor would stcik more in and closer to us – these two have no fear and are so alike.

Taylor staying closer to us – Cassidy heading out to the waves.

Papa’s World – Part two – inside the new house – almost done – furniture arrived!

The guest bathroom – off the front hall but between both bedrooms.

Still thinking this one through – the rug we are trying out – she might just keep this one! LOL

Front bedroom – carring on the light gray and yellow theme. It is in here that drawings form Ella and Cassidy are hung.

This room also has the Swedish heritage items – as Sherry is Swede – her grandmother came ferom Sweden.

A drawing of a little girl in the rain with umbrella by Cassidy when she was nine.

This to me is like a HALLMARK card – so simple yet so carefully drawn of a little girl by a little girl.

This was drawn by Ella when she was 17 years old

Papa’s World – Sherry’s happy places!

When ever we are on the beach – she is drawn to the water – wading – watching the surfers.

The beach draws her – to let off stress and a quiet place to walk – the sounds of the surf – the warm waters.

With friends – out and about – exploring the world with these two – every couple years we plan a break.

Buck and Cindy are our close friends – we moved into a house next to them 36 1/2 years ago –

and had known thenm before that. We get along and enjoy much of the same things.

Cindy is very active as is Sherry – always on the go. They walk together when we are around.

Now – our new home is about 40 minutes away from them.

We try to golf once aweek or go out to a show or dinner.

Family has and always will play a part in our lives. Sherry now is the oldest – and they all look up to her.

Here is Bode in front row with the five grandaughters behind him.

She reminds me so much of her father – tall – slim – smile – always on the go and a born entrepreneur

He always was looking for a way to make money and she has that also.

Not afraid to stand up in front of people and talk.

And they played golf just alike!

I became very good friends with him before he passed away – he told me many things promising I would not repeat them. All had to do with the War and I shall keep that promise I made to him.

I repsected him that much – it was a bonding moment for him and me.

Sitting on the Intercoastal waterway – just her and me – watching the boats and having dinner.

She loves our new area – back in NVA she would take dozens of visitors on tour guides into DC.

She is a leader – a natural born one at that!

And now – our new home – close to the beaches and the ICW – close to golfing and close to friends –

A place for FAMILY to visit and room to have them.

This is her happy place once again – walking – meeting new neighbors –

exploring and in a area that does not have the freezing ice and snow.

The new lanai and her putting her finishing touches on it!

These are but a few of her happy places – places she feels most comfortable in.

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – after moving into the new home – our first official walk on the beach!

Ocean Isle Beach – N.C. the first time to walk here after moving in!

The beach is but 4.5 miles away – shorter if you are a crow!

We live in Cameron Woods – part of Ocean Ridge but across the main highway from it.

We are on the mainland – three miles to the causeway over the ICW!

We actually have a choice of two beaches – for Sunset beach is two miles futher in the opposite direction South!

And if we want to travel – we are 16 miles back to North Myrtle Neach where we have lived the past nine months!

The beach here is different – the sand a darker shade – not as flat and the waves seem to be rougher !

The beach also is not as wide as NMB or as many people!

People surf and ride the waves more here.

The water is very warm just like NMB!

And we are finding our way around!

There are music concerts throughout the Summer and into October on Friday nights!

Getting there is a major problem as we tried to attend the free concert and got stuck in a three mile

traffic jam trying to get across the causeway!

So – we truned around and did not go!

We are learning – do not go at the last moment – go early – walk the beach – have dinner and then get the chairs out and pick a space to chill and wait for the music to start!

Both beaches have these concerts on different nights as does NMB!

Right across the street form our home – Ocean Ridge – such beautiful skies here.

Our first beach walk – thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Toes in the water – beach life!

Finally we have made it to our dream –

We always vacationed at the beach

up and down the EAST COAST!

Today – until the end of February

we will be next to it!

Sherry and I sold our house and rented a condo

one half mile from the beach

in North Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We did this because I just happen to come upon

this rental – and the view of this small lake

from the top floor lanai!

OUR VIEW EVERY DAY!

And the bonus – during our three mile plus walk everyday

half of that walk is on the beach!

Of course said walk comes after my morning cup of coffee!

Why for five months?

Because we do not know where we want to live

only that it will fall someplace

from here to the northern border of N.C.

We have always talked of this

But where ever we go – the criteria is twofold

We will try to stay within 7 hours of our families

in NVA.

And a place that is warm – no snow – and lots of golf!

We did not know at the time just how much Sherry would come to love this place!

Being here – it is warmer than where we lived in the winter

and we walk everyday –

hardly any traffic as we walk within a gated community –

until we cross a road to the beach.

And then after a 1/2 mile walk – we have this!

I LISTEN TO HER THOUGHTS!

She has leaned over to me and said

” I REALLY LOVE THIS WALK AND PLACE”!

A QUIET PLACE TO WORK ON HER PHONE!
TOES IN THE SAND for me!
WE HAVE SAVED – we have worked all our lives.
We have found our quiet place – our love – and a place for family to enjoy.

We are close to the over seven hours for our trip back to NVA!

The family is now a long weekend away.

We still are searching!

Oh – you can ride golf carts here!

TOES IN THE WATER – OUR HAPPY PLACE!

Papa’s World – walking home from the beach at Ocean Keyes – N.M.B. going to miss this!

As we leave the beach entrance we use almost every day – and walk back to the condo – a two block walk to the gate.
This is the property just before we enter the gate at Ocean Keyes – We love this house and grounds!

This is along the sidewalk outside the fenced in yard – almost everything here comes back every year!

They have irrigation out here as well in the enclosed yard. It is shaded by Cypress trees –

and it is a inkling to what is inside the fence!

As soon as you walk through the gate – you see these three white ducks!

I have given them the names of HUEY – DEWEY and LOUIE ! LOL

Sherry – who is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH – will run ahead of me – then turn around and come back – to get her heart rate up – but I think she sees this sign and off she goes! LOL

I have to keep up or the sign in RED is for me!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – the next blog will continue the walk back through Ocean Keyes!

From here to the condo is 1/2 mile walking!

Papa’s World – FRIENDS – BAREFOOT LANDING – BEACH TIME – and of course RAIN!

Before our friends arrived – we took our walk to the beach!

They would all be here by noon!

So – we walked – and then we went back and waited for them to arrive!

Back to front – Jim – Dottie – Sherry – Buck – Cindy and Papa.

Our first stop on Saturday afternoon would be Barefoot landing – and Crooked Hammock Brewery –

where the gals would do a flight of four beer tastings.

The guys already knew what beer they wanted!

Sherry has been trying beer and staying away from her Vodka and Tonic!

So she is slowly acquiring the taste as the rest of us drink beer.

Here we are along the ICW – looking at the boats!

NOTE: we normally do not drink – only when we get together with family of friends –

we go weeks on end without – mostly drinking healthy shakes or water

coffee ( me) tea ( Sherry) – I am for the most part a light beer drinker –

I do not like wine much or hard drinks –

Sherry = prefers when she has a drink – a wine of her choice or Vodka and tonic and not many of them.

Making our way past Greg Normans and onto the brewery along the ICW!
In the Brewery of Crooked Hammock.

After the stop at the Brewery – we continued on toward a new place that just opened up –

Called LANDSHARK – where we would have lunch!

Cindy – Dottie – Sherry – have all been friends for over 39 years!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

Papa’s World – the next day after the storm – we relaxed on the beach – sun and warm sand.

The next morning we walked the beach after the storm and then decided to go back to the condo and pack up the chairs – some drinks and food – music and relax on the beach – RETIREMENT!!!!!!
The beach was not crowded at all being early in the week.

We choose our spot and set up the chairs – took a little walk to test out the water –

But – on either side of us – people had music – loud enough that it interfered with what I had –

So – I just put mine away and listened to theirs – two different types! LOL

Watching them para-glide right off shore – four boats out there – two up by us and two farther south.

We could watch then load and unload the people – hardly stopping – and the crowd on the beach was picking up!

After a night before with thunder and lightening storms with high winds –

this day was calm – sunny – blue skies with white clouds!

Cleared my mind and was a relaxing mid afternoon!

Papa’s World – Finally the two Swans returned – by themselves – no babies!

They have been missing for about five weeks – I would catch a glimpse of them to the left of the lanai

Around the bend and through the shrubs and trees – once in a while

Sometimes I would mistake them for the lone swan –

But then I would see it futher down the lake.

Thought maybe they had a nest and were nesting little ones back in the marsh.

The two mated swans are in the top left of the picture while the lone swan is in the middle right of the picture – the first time I had seen all three in over a month!

But – there were no babies and the geese have tons of babies –

So – I do not know why they disappeared and seemed to glimpse them every once in a while through the trees.

That part of the lake is undeveloped and is marsh – swamp – trees and water – not the type of place you want to wade

through or even boat in there – at least I wouldn’t!

I was disappointed in no baby swans but happy in that the were back!

They still would have nothing to do with the lone swan.

This is as close as they would let it come!

Then – last week – a man showed up in a small skiff – he comes once in a while to fix the fountains –

the one we see that is close to us in the middle of the lake – gets clogged up and quits –

I have watched him a half dozen times come in and go to it and unclog it!

This time as he was coming down the lake – I watched the two swans take flight –

beating their wings against the water and become airborne –

they circled around and headed over the houses to the left –

There is another lake over there – I think they went there as they were frightened by the man and boat.

After that we went for a walk on the beach – and have not seen the two swans since!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – the one swan remains – mingling in with the ducks – mallards and geese.

I have seen turtles by the hundreds – a otter – some very large fish – a eagle several times -osprey – cranes – herons – egrets – storks –

And the three swans when all here.

A place that when you wake up with the sliding glass doors open – you hear the songs of the birds.

Papa’s World – A mail box on the beach entrance and a journal – FELLOW TRAVELER

It started out with a warm morning – but a breeze early and a beautiful dawning of another day.

We decided to walk early – before it gets too hot!

So – we started out and went to the 10th. avenue beach entrance –

the one where they held EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE on the beach which we attended and I wrote a blog about!

Upon walking the walkway to the deck and stairs – we found a new addition!

It was a MAIL BOX with “FELLOW TRAVELER” painted on top!

Inside was a note book – journal – and already half full with notes from FELLOW TRAVELERS!

There also is one at the end of Sunset beach that was in the news –

I had read about it and how it had been there for 40 years!

And the journals are in a historical museum to be preserved!

Sherry took the journal out and already it is half full of splendid notes and thank yous!

Many interesting reads and dates – so she added her own!

I think this is a wonderful idea.

THANK YOU FOR READING PAPA’S WORLD!

We continued our walk onto the beach – with fantastic calming skies!

Gray clouds with the breaking of blue skies – the clouds moving inland away from the beach!

Papa’s World – Friends – last day – golf at The Valley – East port – dinner – SNOOKY’S – ocean

Sherry and Pam – about to start our golf adventure – Pam could not golf – still recovering from a achilles surgery

On their last full day – Bob wanted to play golf – we last played together I would guess 1965 or 1966!

A very long time ago – and he had their clubs in the RV but had not used them all winter.

Pam – who was still recovering from surgery on her heel – would do the driving and Bob rode with me.

Bob and I went to school together from grade one to grade twelve.

They have wintered the last two seasons in their RV – this time it was in Florida.

They made it a point to stop here on their way to family in Nashville before heading home in N.H.

Sherry and Pam
Waiting to tee off – we like this course which sits right on Rte. 17 in Little River – S.C. It is a short course but fun to play. Sherry and I have golfed here alone and with friends.
Now – she hits it on the fairway most times – and every once in a while – will hit it just right and bingo – it goes a long ways – here is a 298 yard hole for her – and this is her drive!

When you play a scramble and her and Cindy hit from the women’s tees – it is good to have them both on your team!

After a good day of golf – we scrambled to a 44 on both nines – we took them to Cherry Grove to one of our favorite places to eat – “SNOOKY’S” on the Beach.

This has become our go to place to take visitors – food is good – and you sit ocean front just yards off the sand.

We have many – many memories of growing up together in a small town in NWPA – called Eldred.

Many adventures of sleeping out under the stars – roaming the streets after curfew at 10:00 PM.

Nothing bad – raid a garden or two – sneak some beer – campfire – canoe trips down the river –

playing sports together – proms – dances – joining the exployer’s together-

driving – family – both his and mine.

Bob and Sherry checking out the beach where we walk every day!
Pam and I a selfie while they discuss the beach!
Ending our day together – walking to the cars. Pam and Bob!

Papa’s World – friends – the pier – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery!

Next to last day – Papa Bob Pam Sherry – near their campground and RV. A visit to Apache Pier!

We had so much to pack in so little time – touring – seeing the house – Mother’s day – catching up – FRIENDS!

Their RV and campground was down the beach about a mile and one half.

They could see this pier from their beach so we decided to drive to it and just take a look around.

Just beyond these tall buildings – 21 to 25 years ago – Sherry and I spent I think three different vacations here!

We would walk up the beach and past this pier to the campground.

So we knew what was here and have many fond memories of her parents – sister and my sister and brother in law here. We also spent vacation time here with friends Steve and Elaine. Our friends from back home in WNY!

Bob and Pam – Bob and I went to grade school – middle school and high school together – life long friends – and got back in touch after one of our H.S. reunions – he had moved to New Hampshire away from Pa. and NYS. Keeping in touch is like normal best buddies do when life comes along – only seeing them at special times – a lot of years in between but memories and laughs renewed!

Here we are at The Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.

We have come to really like this place and Sherry actually likes some of the beer!

Papa’s World – Mother’s day – with friends at Calabash – OYSTER ROCK!

Toasting to MOTHER’S DAY with good friends – Bob and Pam and Sherry! CHEERS!

We had planed this little get together for some time now.

They had been in Florida for the winter in their RV.

Moving around down there and then working their way back North.

They were in a campground eight miles from the condo’

So for three whole days – we gave them a tour – but the first day was Mother’s Day.

After their arrival we went down and joined them – sitting around – talking – and we stopped and brought them salads.

Then it was for a very quick walk on the beach where they were camping!

It was so WINDY – we took this picture and headed back to the campsite.

A lot of self control in not staying on the beach for a walk! LOL
The next day we picked them up – toured our new home and discovered the drywall had been installed!

Here – we are at Oyster Rock on the ICW in Calabash N.C. where we had reservations for dinner.

A walk along the boardwalk outside of Oyster Rock – here is where the fishing boats return with their catches!
Charter and fishing boats – they provide fresh catch for these places – including Oyster Rock – on their menus.
Fresh catch – Flounder – broiled!
Fresh catch – Mahi-Mahi! Catch of the day!
And of course – down here – HUSH PUPPIES!
Pam Sherry Papa Bob – a wonderful Mother’s day dinner with good friends!

At Oyster Rock in Calabash N.C. on the ICW!

Papa’s World – birthday – 72 years – growing old and young walking on the beach.

One of my favorite pass times since we moved to NMB – morning walks on the beach!
Sherry told me this was my day – being my birthday – and I said I wanted to go for a early morning walk – on the beach.

Usually – we do not walk this early – but I am a early riser – 5:00 am. each and every morning!

I have been that way my entire life – but I also go to bed early – by 8:30 pm.

I react to what my body wants – if I go past that feeling of wanting to sleep – then I am awake for hours!

But – with that being said – my body automatically awakes the same time every morning!

And then – without proper sleep – I feel lousy all day!

A good nights sleep – waking up – writing my blog – getting dressed and then we walk out to this!

Wide open beach – low tide – gray – white clouds – blue skies and warm sun!

My kind of day!

Papa – checking his phone – walking on my birthday – life is good – I am blessed.

Papa’s World – sometimes – it is relaxing after a nice day – to just sit on the beach!

After dinner – we decided to drive to the beach – get out our chairs and just take it all in for a hour!

Sherry is always drawn to the surf – walking in the water – still too cold for me! LOL

The only downside to this was the wind – it was strong – and would get into your eyes!

Hardly anyone down here even though it was the mid ’70’s out!

We only brought with us our water – and a lot of people walked past us – but only a few sitting on the sand.

The relaxing nature – the quiet – only birds – sounds of the waves.

Here you can see what the wind does when it is strong and blowing – it makes the sand look like waves – no footprints remain even though people are walking by!

It was a good hour to visit regardless of the wind!

Papa’s World – Fish Market bar & grill – Ocean Isle Beach and the ICW!

The view from the top deck of the Fish Market bar & grill on the ICW & OBI harbor!

We had passed this from the causeway bridge every time we have come over to visit the beach.

And in reading up on it – found that it is the sister bar & grill to the one in downtown Shallotte N.C.

Which we were at one night after playing golf with the McBride’s and loved it!

Here – we decided just to have drinks and split shrimp wrapped in bacon!

I do not do this often so it was a treat for me!

AND IT WAS GOOD and fast service on that top deck.

You go to the bar – get your drinks – place your order – pay for it –

and it seemed like a few minutes a waiter comes up the steps and yells out your name with what you ordered!

The causeway bridge coming over the ICW from the mainland – we are four miles from here in our new house build
The ICW and beyond that the main land – this waterway comes into OIB where the bars are and gas pumps.

There is another bar and grill here called SHARKEY’S and next time we will check that out!

There are also boat rentals here – gift shop and fishing departures.

It is nice to know that we can be here in ten minutes from the new house.

I DID and LOVED THEM!

Papa’s World – lunch at Bouy’s and a street music festival on Main street!

I have wanted to stop in here and have lunch ever since we got here on 10-1-20!

It is a local place right on the beach in North Myrtle Beach!

These places always catch my eye – I just get a feeling about them!

They generally have good food and live music –

and this day – the food was great – a salad with grilled fish – and the music?

Well – right across the street is a block long and a block wide vacant lot –

And it was packed with tents – you could rent – and thousand of people!

A huge stage and three bands playing for six hours!

WE WERE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE OPENING OF NORTH MYRTLE BEACH MUSIC FESTIVAL!

Our view from our table while eating lunch!

It is the first major event sanctioned by the town government since the start of the pandemic 14 months ago!

And people were out and about in golf carts – cars – trucks and just walking!

This was roped off and a charge to enter – you could rent out a canopy – and carry in drinks and food!

We did not go inside the ropes – instead after we ate – we walked around and around the whole roped off area as did many other people – they had chairs set up outside the ropes and golf carts – the police were there and ticketing anyone not parked legal.

I would say – inside – a thousand people – or more – I guess this is the fourth one they have had like this over the years – and the radio station was there and it also was broadcasting from the beach which was just as crowded!

Sherry entering the beach on main street!

We tried to walk the beach – but it was really crowed and full of young people – all right next to each other!

A look back toward sixth street where we usually go – and the other direction had even more people!

This area is pretty much not locked down – and you could tell the tourist season has begun!

I am happy for the the store owners who have suffered so much – many shut the doors and will not return.

But – we decided this was way too crowed for us – so we returned to the music and walked toward our condo.

Pausing once again outside the ropes to listen to a band – really good singing all the classics of summer of the 60’s and 70’s!

Papa’s World – early morning sunrise and then early walk on the beach – before 7:30 am. !

The sun peaking above the tree line – this is in the direction of Cherry Grove – North Myrtle Beach is too the right – beyond that tree live is Ocean Blvd and then the beach.

It was a warm morning – 73 degrees – and Sherry had said she wanted to walk early!

The view here is like this every morning when there are no clouds!

It is one half mile to the gated entrance on Hillside drive.

We walk this almost every day – and then turn left and walk up two blocks to 8th. street.

Turn right and walk one block to Ocean Blvd. – cross the street –

and walk into the parking lot – we like this lot – it has a bathroom – and a shower to wash the sand off!

It also has a boardwalk from the parking lot – to a deck and then steps right onto the beach!

In . 66 of a mile – we are standing on the beach!

Here I am standing on the deck before the steps to the beach!

Early morning sunrise – ten minute walk from our condo.

We will miss this but in thirty minutes from our new home – we can be back here!

Sherry at the deck at the end of the ramp to the beach on 8th avenue – North Myrtle Beach!
We begin our walk North toward the Cherry Grove Pier – beautiful day – sun shine on the water.
Sherry walking on the surf edge – actually the water felt somewhat warm on the feet!

Papa’s World – beach day – warm sun – but cool breeze off the Ocean – three hours – relaxing!

She said to me after about a hour – you can not lean back in this chair and take a nap!

And she was right – while we had different chairs – you couldn’t in mine either!

Papa – checking my phone for Pandora – seeing how much battery life was left!

Music to the left and music to the right – I just turned it off!

Depending on the wind – I could hear one or the other and with no wind – Both!

But – what a beautiful day – almost 80 degrees – hot sun but cool breeze off the ocean.
And then they have to put it on the right way! LOL!

We decided to stay for two hours and then we added another hour,

Since we had eaten almost everything we had brought with us –

We decided that was enough and went back to the car –

Yes – instead of walking down – we drove only because we had our chairs-

speaker – drinks – little table and the food and towels!

Those three hours involved some walking – some reading and some listening to the music and watching a kite and people watching!
Soon – it would be back to the condo and this view – either way we win!

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time!

Debby Ella Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy

On our way back home to NVA – we stopped in Lynchburg to watch Maddy –

Our oldest granddaughter – play soccer!

She starts as a Sophomore – and plays for the University of Lynchburg.

One thing she wanted to do – to get out in the fresh air and hike with her family!

Which we did on this paved trail that runs along the river in Lynchburg Va.

Gerhard and Jennie

One of our very first visitors after we moved to Ocean Keyes in North Myrtle Beach –

was the father and mother of our son in law – Marcus.

They came down and spent four days with us – playing cards – walking the beach –

and introducing us to a new game called RUMMIKUBE!

We have always gotten along with them and every Sunday – sat beside them in the pew!

A short visit – Sherry Sarah Debby – came to visit – Mike could not be here – Maddy was in college.

Debby and the two granddaughters came for a short visit –

and we took them hiking – which they love to do – at Vareens memorial Garden.

Walking along the ICW and over the marsh.

They will be back as we took them also to the new house build!

Carol and Mike – our close neighbors back in WNY for 12 1/2 years!

Mike and Carol – we lived next door to them – invited us and our friends – we have all been friends for years-

to their lake house in WNY -Lake Chatauqua – for a long weekend of riding the lake in their beautiful boat!

They have extended another invitation for this August – the same group – for four days!

They own a business that sends crews to do commercial painting all over the East Coast

and this year are expanding to the mid west.

Mike – started this when he was very young — and what a company he has turned it into!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Cindy Papa Sherry Carol

On the lake in Mike and Carols boat!

All eight of us fit very comfortable – we spent three days cruising the lake for hours at a time!

All eight of us have been friends for years and years!

Papa’s World – Spring has Sprung – the Beach got busy – and they are in the water!

Here is our before 9:am. early morning walk – a little more crowed but nothing not expected! Looking South to North Myrtle Beach from where we enter the access to the beach.
From the beach access looking toward Cherry Grove – a few more people – but not a lot!

But – this is the beginning of the week for Spring Breakers –

and we noticed traffic getting heavey.

We have found our way around and avoid the high traffic on rte. 17!

We take the side streets as far as we can – and one side street takes up to where we can shop!

Now – in the afternoon we decided to do a couple hours of a beach day – taking and carrying our chairs to the beach. Here is the same view looking toward North Myrtle Beach – a lot more people and a lot of people in the water. But we still had our own space – no one within thirty feet of us!
Here is the same view in the afternoon looking toward Cherry Grove! And – it will get more crowed as Spring turns into Summer with vacations! We are in the open space and avoid large gatherings which happen mostly toward North Myrtle Beach town center. A lot of young H.S. and college students gather on the beach there in a large group. You just avoid them as they will do what they do regardless!

Being here is still our dream – we will come back often as we like it here –

but also where we are moving too – no traffic – country quiet – we can walk –

and still be in access to the other two beaches!

The beach here is very wide – I have been told it is the widest on the Grand Strand!

Papa’s World – decided to visit the other beach near the new house – SUNSET BEACH! N.C.

The pier in the distance – we went in and grab something to eat and just sat and enjoyed the view!

We knew Ocean Isle Beach was a eight minute drive from the new house- without heavy traffic.

Now – it was time to see just how far the other beach – Sunset Beach – was from the new house.

So – we drove and it was 13 minutes!

About five minutes longer in no traffic!

So – there you are – two beaches to choose from – and if we want – we can go back to NMB –

some 30 minutes away – with no traffic.

We checked out the parking as we understand that in the busy part – this could determine where we go!

They have pay parking – which you can pay a set price for the year –

and – like the other beach – off the road parking –

but we were told to be careful on that – if you do not do it right –

like blocking the bike path or sidewalk –

you will get a fine!

The other direction on Sunset Beach which we were told was voted one of the top ten beaches in the country! And it really is nice – time will tell if we like it more that either of the other two beaches!

It was a very windy day on the sand – so we decided not to walk the beach –

but rather see where we can walk among the streets and houses.

We did find a path to walk – while not going on the sand –

and could see we could easily get our three mile walk in!

Papa’s World – Easter sunrise service on the beach – cold – but worth it!

It was rather cold – 46 degrees – but thank goodness no wind!

We went in the dark – at 6:15 AM. and was surprised at all the cars and activity.

This was but one of several services up and down the beach.

ELCA – which we are a member of – along with the Episcopal church –

Came together to have this service.

I would guess by the start – some 4 to 5 hundred souls gathered on the beach-

many standing – others brought their own chairs

At last – in more than a year – we attended a live service.

Glory to God in the highest – and peace to his people on earth.

All our married lives – we have attended church – me – I converted from Catholic to Lutheran

which was how Sherry was raised.

I serve a risen Savior , He’s in the world today – I know that He is living , whatever others say ; I see his hand of mercy , I hear his voice of cheer, And just the time I need Him He’s always near.
They came and came – down the ramp or steps – or from up the beach and down the beach – walking- walking – walking – silently – some hand in hand – others close by – Easter Sunrise Service.
Give thanks to the LORD , for he is good; “His mercy endures for ever.”

They were mostly silent – a few murmurs here and there – ushers directing people – passing out communion cups and wafers – a few announcements – still cold – but at least there was no wind. The sound of the surf – the seagulls – the stillness of the early morning hour – the sand cold – bundled up – ear muffs and scarf – waiting – waiting – waiting.

Our Father , who art in heaven , hallowed be thy name , thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Papa’s World – finally – we got a warm day for the beach and water – FAMILY KROHN!

TAYLOR CASSIDY BODE

Once it was in the mid to high ’70’s and full sun –

Into the water they went!

Notice how protective Cassidy is of her little brother!

They fight and argue – but no one touches him according to her!

These two should have been the twins

they act and sound just alike.

She is so kind – loving and thoughtful.

Cassidy and Bode – two peas in a pod!
Taylor – or “TATTER TOT” as her cousin Ella calls her!

She on the other hand loves her alone time away from the other two! LOL!

She rides horses – and whenever around her MorMor – holds her hand.

She is the serious – studious one who quotes facts!

“AS AMATTER OF FACT” she says and then goes on to tell you!

BODE – after FIVE GRAND DAUGHTERS – he is the only boy and all boy!
Only six years old – and will be tall like Taylor!
Bode – cars – trucks – bikes – playing Army – running – riding – scraps – bruises – scabs – star wars – monsters – independent – never wearing shoes or socks and shirtless in the cold!

It was a very warm day in the sun – water to me was very cold – but they loved it!

Taylor is goin to be really tall like her MorMor – I think close to six foot!

They played and played in the water – coming out to run up and tell us something and then back they went!

For us – it was sit and take it all in – the sun was warm which is what I like!
Cassidy – small but a spitfire! Always calling her MorMor as does Bode! Love you Papa she says!

Yes – the sun was warm – the sand was also – yet the water was cold – but to them – it was their day at the beach!

Papa’s World – just some random thoughts and pictures of the family Krohn.

The Krohn family and Sherry – granddaughters – daughter and son in law.

They have visited for almost a week.

The weather – bearable – low 60’s to low 70’s but with chilly wind.

Marcus and I took Bode out golfing on Monday!

He has pretty good form and Marcus is getting him lessons.

He is only six years old and I think the highlight for him is driving the golf cart! LOL

I told Marcus – you need to get him lessons plus doing cross country

He almost ran the whole golf course!

Taylor Sherry ( MorMor) Bode

They walked to the beach every day.

Most days I would drive the car down as we had all the chairs and beach stuff!

Some days – as in this picture – we all walked carrying the “STUFF”!

Daddy and Taylor – she is a little daddy’s girl!
Cassidy and Daddy – independent little spitfire – but very caring – for her brother and sister.
Bode and Daddy – all boy – trucks – tools – sports – running – full of energy – barefoot – coat less – teasing – BOY!

Yesterday was a full beach day – warm – sun – and kids in the water!

Too cold for me – but in the sun – hot!

Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – notice how Cassidy takes care of Bode!

Such a protective little girl – a heart of warmth!

Papa’s World – Family Krohn – two seasons – cold and warm – I LIKE WARM!

My season is WARM and WARMER!

Ever since I had my Heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago –

I get chilled very easy – even before I did not like the snow – ice and cold!

But – the families seem to like it – skiing – snowboarding and playing in the snow!

When we were back home for the Holidays – believe it or not – we went to a winery!

Where we had wine – snacks and a fire in a fire pit.

The pit was free and offered by the winery!

I bundled up and made it through -but by the end I was cold!

Here we are – outside – about 7 PM. – Marcus – Papa – Bode – Sherry – Taylor – Tammy – Cassidy!

I have to admit – it was unique – but I very seldom drink wine –

I just can not get into the dry wines!

Now – a sweeter wine I can sip on!

Sherry Cassidy Taylor – Tammy & Bode

What a difference 3 weeks make!

From snow and cold to sand and somewhat warm!

Even though it was not as warm as we would of liked – for Jan. it was okay!

I am not shoveling snow – I can layer up and walk the beach!

School break – and a quick trip down – Marcus could not get away.

The first thing they wanted to see – THE BEACH!

The little ones love the beach – sand and water.

And then we took them for a walk along the ICW at Barefoot Landing!

Watching the boats traveling up and down –

and seeing the boats in the marina – where a lot of people are living on the boats there!

WHERE WE ARE UNTIL END OF JUNE!

Papa’s World – 2-25-21 – warm – sunshine – beach walk – people in the water!

Near the end of Feb. warm sunny day – people actually in the water!

I am loving this weather down here in S.C at North Myrtle Beach!

This day – it was between 70 and 75 degrees!

Sherry walking toward the surf – tide is going out – beach is getting wide!

Our life has changed – beach life has now become our norm!

The surf – sand and water – everyday – count our blessings!

We have always loved the ocean – sand – and warmth!

When our new house is finished – we are only 30 minutes away from this!

And – where our home is situated – 4 and 6 miles to two different beaches!

The sound of the surf when it is calm – the sun – and smell – draw us each day!

Papa’s World – walking the beach – no buildings here – just wide endless beach – Cherry Point!

Debby Sarah Sherry Ella

We decided for their last beach walk on a cold windy day –

to take them to the far end of Cherry Grove to a place the local’s call Cherry Point!

To get to the beach – you must park along the road and then walk through this covered path!

The path to the beach is overhanging tree limbs with lots of shrubs and bushes.

Once you walk through there – you are greeted to a wide expanse of beach to the left.

The right goes back toward the houses and pier.

The view to the left and almost low tide!

It was cold and windy – and we wanted to walk way out as it seemed at low tide you might be able to walk to the other shore.

Here you can see a few brave souls – walking – and the wind was really blowing!

Ella and Sarah – laughing and trying to stay warm in the blowing wind!

We walked maybe a half mile – and decided enough – it was just too cold and so windy!

One last picture with Ella – Debby Sherry and Sarah before heading back to the car.

I told Sherry – when it gets warmer and is low tide – we must come back and just see if we can walk across the bay!
