Papa’s World – random thoughts and pictures living our life to the plus!

My first thing every morning – fix my cup of coffee!

And then it is onto writing my blog – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog !

All this is early – and depends on when I wake up – mostly bathroom! LOL

Once up – it is hard for me to fall back asleep – so I just get up and fix that cup of coffee!

Pushing the garbage can outside before 6 am. which is the time they want it out there!

Sunrises here are really something – the ocean is but four miles away!

This street for construction is almost done – two houses left – right across the street –

and one down two lots from us.

All the rest are down where the corner is and then around the cul-de-sac.

Passwords – I write them down!

Everything today needs a password – and I just can not remember them all – so I have a special place

I keep them safe – where I am the one who knows where to look ( Sherry knows also) !

The entrance to our development – Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland side.

It is a quiet place except for the on going construction – which by years end should be done where we live.

The new phase is now having the infrastrucure put in and is away from us.

Ocean Isle Beach and our grandaughters – only four miles away.

We choose this area because we are on the mainland side – then the ICW – then the houses and business

of Ocean Isle Beach and the beach itself!

We also are close to Sunset beach – another three miles!

We are near the border of S.C and a lot of golf courses!

All the towns and communities have free open air concerts – running from mid May to mid September!
And of course Calabash – the Seafood capital of the world! Only seven miles away – a place we take company!

This area is full of places to visit and dine – all with views!

And another major reason we moved here – golfing – we try to golf once a week – and we have 20 plus courses right where we live to choose from!

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – inside the new home – Part Three – the tour continues!

The middle bedroom – decorated with pictures of where Sherry grew up – Mount Jewett, Pa.

This room is where we put pictures of Mount Nebo – the historic 1800’s eight sided Swedish church –

which was built by the Swedes who settled here. It also is the final resting place of her realatives.

There is a copy of a very old map of the town of Mount Jewett – which we just framed but have not hung yet.

And of course the historic Kinzua railraod bridge – constructed in the late 1800’s –

across a valley and over 300 feet high and a mile long – and part of it taken down by a tornado!

This same bridge is where they filmed a episode of the TV series “BIGFOOT”!

This was all territory that belonded to the Seneca Indian tribe before the white man.

Looking back toward the hallway to the front door – with the bedrooms and guest bathroom to the left –

The office is to the right and behind that wall in the center. To the right is the hall leading to the garage and laundry room. We choose this model for the open concept and the enclosed office space.

NEW HOUSE PART FOUR next blog : livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – our morning walk in Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – Ocean Ridge!

The entrance to Cameron Woods which is part of Ocean Ridge across the highway.

In part we choose this development because it has a place to walk! Quietly – and not much traffic!

Also close to the entrance – a retaining pond – one of many in the area.
A look from the street into Cameron Woods – Ocean Ridge.

This area was supposed to be developed much like Ocean Ridge across the street –

where the BIG CAT golf courses – four of them – are located.

When the downturn came – this section discontinued development –

somehow – Realstar became involved and is developing Cameron Woods in among all the lots that were previously

sold by the main developer.

For whatever reason – no one is building on them except maybe 8 to 10 houses.

This area is like entering a national forest!

The beginning of my walk back to the house from the gate. QUIET – hardly any cars!
At the beginning a few of the less than a dozen homes that were built here.
Then you enter the forest – there are utilities here – water – sewage and electric – berms and drains and street lights with Ocean Ridge on them.
I wonder just why no one is building in these sections with many named roads turning off the main road.
Might it be all tied up in courts or someone bad mouthed the development!

Very interesting – and we have been told – they paid a lot for these properties.

We made the right choice – our development is thriving – another and last section will soon open up.

By the end of the year – our section should be completed and all sold out!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – the back yard – Crepe Nyrtles – Oleanders – pine straw and flowers.

Water – mellon Crepe Myrtle – stone and brick border.

The tree is in line with the one in front which is a white Crepe Myrtle – we wanted color in the back.

The lanai – which is screened in – and we will be able to view the two trees from inside.

On the opposite side of the yard – another water – mellon Crepe Myrtle – opposite of the white one in the front yard.
Three Oleander bushes that should bloom next year.

This tree line is protected and will stay there. Pine straw and flowers are what I plan for this area.

It is a work in progress – planting flowers – we love to plant flowers that return each season.

Much as I did at the old house in NVA!

Perinals mixed in with the wild and pine straw.
This area I really like the contrast – wild vs. planted Oleanders and pine straw.

In my mind I picture a bird bath here and a bird feeder. And on one of those big trees – one of those faces –

with eyes and nose and a smile!

Perhaps larger flowers that come back year to year.

We have this view from the lanai and the open patio and firepit.

We need to do some landscaping along the border here – just do not know what and when – but we will.

Papa’s World – front porch sitting – sunrises and early morning coffee – we made it!

The view I have each morning when sitting on our new front porch!
And in the evening – we have the view to the West of sunsets!

As you can also see – we are in the middle of construction of new houses – we are the second to close –

but we have been through this twice before – and the values have already gone up!

This is our third build – in the last 22 years!

Moving South – first to the NVA area – outside of Washington DC – and buying and selling three times –

With twice building from ground up –

has led us here – in Ocean Isle Beach – Cameron Woods – and sitting on our front porch.

Our new house and most likely the last one!

We have done major landscaping since this picture was taken – removing the pine straw and replacing it with the black mulch – putting in white – gray stones around the trees in the front yard and large rocks around the lanai.

Today it looks like this – removed some bushes and put in the mulch!

We have just a few more ideas to formulate – changing a few things and we will be settled!

Another sunrise from the front porch.

Sitting on the front porch – sunrises and early morning coffee – this is PAPA’S WORLD!

Papa’s World – Tigers Eye – Ocean Ridge Plantation N.C. – golfing with friends.

Sherry and Cindy – we do a scramble – husbands vs. wives – and we can not beat them!

Try as hard as we can – we can stay even – first nine we lost by one – we pared and they birdied –

they never get into trouble – if one does – the other is in the middle – just consistent –

they are almost always putting for par and when they are on with the putts –

they will beat you!

This is Ocean Ridge Plantation – right across the road from our new home.

There are four courses in here and this one – TIGERS EYE is the second one we have golfed on.

This is called the bIG CATS courses – all named after the big cats of the world.

LIONS PAW – PANTHERS RUN – LEOPARDS CHASE and this one TIGERS EYE!

We have what is called the FIRST TEE CARD – all four of us – and we can play 32 different courses on it at almost half the going rate for the course.
Sherry just hitting the ball and right down the middle!
Cindy hitting off the tee – she hits about 150 to 175 every time!

We have fun first – laugh a lot and plan our shots – but – hey – they are tough to beat!

They play the ladies tees as does Buck – I play the senior tees.

The courses here in NC and SC are mostly all like this – except if they have a special theme.
Very challenging with lots of water and sand traps which the sand I found off my drive on every hole!
There is wildlife and water fowl all over and most courses here have “Gators”!

You just are careful – looking always for them and watch for snakes in deep grass or wooded area.

My buddy for 35 years – BUCK!

Papa’s World – a last view for now from the condo – full moon and Fat Harolds.

Full moon from the lanai – you can hear the pounding of the surf 1/2 mile away.
Of all the places we could of stayed – I think we did pretty good in selecting this one!
Dimming sunlight before the full moon barely visible.

We have gone to Fat Harolds numerous times – we like the beach music – not knowing it was called this!

Back home in the early years of my life – this was just music played on the radio

and on TV when you watched those dance shows!

Had no idea about the SHAG or the way Southern Rock was danced down here.

Here we are at Fat Harolds – listening to the band SMOKIN HOT – eight members playing the beach sound in music!

Funny how you grow up listening to Alabama – Eagles and all the other music of our youth –

and since the ’40’s this was happening right here!

The history of the surf music for almost 80 years

pictures on the wall – the music groups that came through here – famous – only we did not know the why!

Our generation on the beaches of South Carolina – dancing to the beach music.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

The southern hippie generation – at Fat Harolds on the beach for over 60 years.

Papa’s World – almost complete – new home in a couple weeks – dreams come true!

Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland – North Carolina

This is the new house – most of the outside is complete – and the inside is almost done.

The kitchen and to the right – the breakfast nook.

The floors are all done as is the carpet and tile.

They move pretty fast when they all show up to complete what they have to do!

View from the sun room looking through the vaulted living room – office in the middle – front door to the left and garage door to the right.
The office with french doors.
The sun room and looking out to the patio.

The text message came yesterday – we are still on schedule for a walk through on 6-22-21 –

which most likely will of happened by the time I post this blog.

The screened in covered lanai off the breakfast nook and sun room.
Master bed room with bump out windows.
Master bath – tiled shower.
The tiled shower – all the tile came from where we both worked for a combined 79 1/2 years! DAL TILE CO.
We choose to make the shower and linen closet bigger and not have a bath tub in here.
Looking back into the master bedroom from the bathroom.

We were able to pick what we wanted for the house – as long as there were options.

Second bedroom – a hall bath is between the two front bedrooms across from the office and by the front door entrance – the entrance is covered as is the front porch.
The third bedroom which is on the side of the house.

It is almost done and we are two weeks out to closing which by the time I post this – will of happened.

Papa’s World – on the Autumn of Life – sunrises – family – Part Two !

It never gets old – every morning is different – as are the nights – I will miss this view in a few short days!

Our Condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – found simply by accident – and now almost nine months later –

We will move out and into our new home – if the closing is on time!

But – here is what we look at each morning – the lake – the wild fowl – the houses – the fountains – trees –

I love the rees!

And family – little ones climbing trees!

All or most of the family has come down – Mike and Maddy have not made it here.

The little ones love to explore – play on the playground at Barefoot Landing.

Family is really important to us – and keeping the time to get here manageable!

In our new home it will be six hours for one family and almost seven hours for the other.

They can drive in one day and be here early enough to enjoy!

Family time – beach – exploring – warm weather – new home – new neighborhood.

The Myers family – our oldest daughter and the oldest granddaughters – Debby – Ella – Mike – Papa – Sherry – Sarah and Maddy – our first granddaughter – Ella was second and then Sarah.
Ella a senior – next fall – enroll at Randolph College – will play soccer – her H.S,. is undefeated and about to enter states.
Sarah – in the middle of Taylor and Cassidy – Sarah is the youngest in her family –

Sarah wants to act – design – fashion – dance – no sports for her – although I secretly believe she would be awesome – still growing – Ella at 5′ 81/2 ” – I think she will be taller – and Taylor will be tallest of all – only 10 years old!

Maddy – oldest grand child with the youngest grand child – Bode – only boy – Maddy is going into her third year of college at the University of Lynchburg where she also plays soccer – carrying a 3.85 GPA!
Mike – PHYS ED. teacher – Ella – Debby – QNMD for The Juice Plus Company.

Family means a great deal to us – even though we are down here – they have visited and we have gone home several times – staying in each family homes with them.

Papa’s World – walking a nature trail with Debby in Winchester Va.

A picture along the trail in a display for a resident hiker of the Appalachian Trail she took beginning to end.

This is all part of the Shenandoah Museum complex in Winchester Va. A hiking trail – through the woods.

Sherry took all these pictures as we walked about three miles!

The pathway is very wide – I would guess eight feet and all made up with crushed limestone! There are benches to sit on the entire walkway – and areas to sit quietly – a really nice walk and easy on the feet!

We have walked this every time we come to visit and now in late spring – the flowers and trees are full!

Papa’s World – the trim work is done – the grading complete – doors hung – almost there!

The dormer siding is done – landscaping in and irrigation done – the grass is in even though I have no pictures!
Before the landscaping and irrigation – the grading – has to be smoothed out!
The irrigation in and being tested – the landscaping in – grass has now been added – as has the garage door – and gutters are on – the lanai has been screened in and painting on inside started!
The trim is done – repairs made to drywall and sanded down – painting has begun! This is the sun room.
The lanai which has since been screened in – Sherry standing where door will be to the open patio and fire pit.

We get daily updates from a neighbor – the Quartz has been delivered – I know there was a wait for the tile!

French doors to the office – this is one of the main reasons we selected this model – along with a front porch! The layout provided us a place for desks for Sherry’s Internet business and a place for me to write!
Nice size trees and one more on the other side of the driveway! I like the bushes – and we will develop the back the way we want to plant – we envision large planters of flowers also.
Sherry standing in the covered front porch which I wanted as I sit on the porch all the time- Love when it is a light rain!
Walking is our way to stay healthy – praying for World peace – loving our family – friends – neighbors!
Hall closet – pantry and kitchen with island – quartz counter tops and 12 inch subway tile for back splash!
Breakfast nook with windows out to the enclosed screened in lanai!

Papa’s World – Drywall done – cabinets in – tile next – getting close!

We pulled up to the front of the house – DRYWALL in the trash bin!

You see – there has been a delay and shortage in drywall – all over the country –

which has held up our completion by a month! Along with inspectors and inspections!

I was excited as this meant the drywall was being put in!

When I walked into the garage – it had the first coat of MUD on!
Then – I went inside and it was all done – first coat of mud – we were back on schedule after four weeks!

It has been a long four to five weeks with hardly any progress – but we prayed and it is now moving forward.

Looking toward the front from the sun room – to the left – hallway – entrance to the bedrooms and bathroom – middle is outer wall to the office – and to the right hallway to laundry room and garage. Open space is vaulted living room.
The kitchen and breakfast nook.
Window to the left – breakfast nook and the yard – rear windows – the outside enclosed lanai.
Looking from the hallway into the living room – to the left – kitchen island and the breakfast nook – to the right – Sherry standing in the sun room. The whole back of the house is windows – open patio behind her through the windows.
Master bedroom with bathroom to the left and hall way door to the right.

And two days later when we visited – the mud on the dry wall was completed – sanded – and we had CABINETS!

Kitchen and Island
Master bathroom
Guest bathroom

We are excited – they told us tile is going in – grading outside – doors to be hung.

Now there is a delay and shortage on PAINT!

Because of the ICE STORM in Texas and the Pandemic.

They told us they would continue doing the things they could until they got the paint.

Our new community – Cameron Woods – Ocean Isle Beach – mainland side – LOT # 89!

We are happy – moving forward -perhaps by the time this posts – we will have a move in date!

Our lot is backed by trees that will not be cleared – it is deemed protected wetlands.

We will have lots of roads to walk and new trails going in.

Almost all the purple area has been sold years ago – but no one has seemed to build on them –

maybe a half dozen really big homes!

We do not know why – investment?

You can buy lots there from individuals for a hefty price!

For now it remains paved roads – old growth shaded trees and street lights – utilities

and beautiful green areas and ponds.

Papa’s World – a evening with friends golfing Magnolia Greens – late dinner!

A bright sun rise to a eventful full day of walking – getting ready – visiting the storage unit – and finally – teeing off!
Buck on the first tee at 4:40 pm. We were golfing late – Cindy had a lot of stuff to do at work!

So – the plan was made – golf nine – eat dinner and then go home!

We could of stayed with them – but – lugging all the stuff I need – my sleep machine etc. just easier to drive the hour plus drive back to the condo – besides – plenty of more times exist in the future!

Sherry getting ready to tee off on the second hole!

We played our scramble format – Buck and me – they played best ball – WE LOST!

Cindy teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!

Now – we lost two holes to them – one by one stroke and one by two strokes!

We play even up – and we tied the other seven holes.

But – on the hole we lost by one stroke – we parred – they birdied!

On the one we lost by two strokes – they parred and we four putted – just the way it goes!

Cindy – birdie putt – made it – we parred – they are so good!

We have played this format for years and years – we at one time played couples vs couple – then we played mixed couple vs. mixed couple – but the gals challenged us – the other ways split pretty even – this way – THEY WIN!

My buddy – my partner – golfing together – we did beat them a few weeks ago – but we had to shoot a 39 to beat them!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my drive – second shot coming up – we four putted – double bogie – LOST!
Sherry teeing off – right down the middle – both are that way!

PAPA’S WORLD

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 – 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 – Crooked Hammock – Greg Normans – Carolina Opry – with FRIENDS!

PAPA BUCK SHERRY CINDY outside Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot landing S.C.

They stopped and picked us up – we had tickets to see Time Warp at the Carolina Opry Theater in Myrtle Beach

But first – we stopped at Barefoot Landing at the new Brewery Crooked Hammock.

Sherry had decided to make a switch to beer – as that is what we mostly drink.

She wanted to try it and just see if she would like it! ( SHE DID)!

She and Cindy ordered a flight of four different brews and tasted each one!

She found two she could drink!

Now – when together – she can drink some brews! LOL

We then walked across the street to Greg Normans – bar and eatery.

Yes – that Greg Norman – the Aussie great golfer!

It was a first for us and we had walked past it numerous times.

My lettuce wedge with salmon was excellent and they all said theirs was good as well!

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!!!!!!!

Will go back!

We had tickets – just a short drive down the beach in Myrtle Beach.
To see TIME WARP – music from the 60’s – 70’s and 80’s – what we grew up with!

And it was fantastic!

We knew every non stop song for over one hour – and then intermission!

And then for one hour more – non stop!

Do to the Pandemic and Social Distancing – no one sat in front – side or back of us.

It said the show was sold out but it was less than half full.

Very professional – wearing masks to our seats – and no one within I would say almost ten feet!

It felt good to once again enjoy music and just relax to a very good broad way style revue!

A cast of dozens – top performers – America’s got talent – The Voice and American Idol.

So many talented people who all can sing – dance – play instruments and perform at a high level!

Well – I had a beer – but it was a special time for special drinks!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

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 livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!
