Papa’s World – Boardwalk – Myrtle Beach – S.C.

We decided to take a little side trip on our way to Costco!

Since neither one of ever remembered going to the Boardwalk

on the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach –

We thought we would take our time

and follow the beach road from North Myrtle Beach

all the way down to the Boardwalk!

It had been almost 25 years since we vacationed in North Myrtle Beach

and – we were not disappointed!

We parked half way in between the two piers.

And then we walked toward the Northern Pier!

We entered the doors and went out to the open pier

where the fishermen were and the other tourist.

We had walked by numerous shops – places to eat –

a large volleyball complex with multiple courts

and a sand volleyball game going on –

two on two!

The boardwalk continued beyond that pier

but – we decided to return from our starting point

and then walk South to the other pier

about a mile distance between the two.

The southern pier in the distance

The walk back to where we parked the car

was on the boardwalk

but it changed to a paved walk – wide – and lined on both sides

with bushes – plam trees and shade and flowers.

It was not straight but wound from side to side

with benches in the shade.

Places to see and observe the beach
The beach of white soft sand

We decided once we got to the second pier

we would look for a place to grab a late lunch

before we continued on our way to Costco.

We found that place by the pier itself –

actually looked like it was part of the pier

called “WICKED TUNA”

where we made our way to the top and had a great view of the pier

and the beach in both directions!

We had a great lunch sharing some appetizers.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

We continued onto Costco – and vowed that when we have to make that trip again – we would include the Boardwalk and this place to sit and have lunch!


Papa’s World – a visit on our way – Myrtle Beach Proper!

We decided to drive the beach road from North Myrtle Beach

all the way down to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk!

We stopped – got out of the car – walked to the beach entrance!

All the way down – we passed house after house

residential living – vacation homes – second homes

beautiful beach front homes!

They look as if they have been here a long time.

I was told that because of the shape of the coast

a long half moon stretching from below Myrtle Beach

all the way North to Wilmington N.C.

Very few storms hit this part of the coast

instead are directed toward Wilmington!

It was a Sunday drive after church virtual service.

A quiet ride with no traffic and heading for Costco!

But – we had never seen the Boardwalk!

We decided to just take our time – explore a little

before going to the store.

Maybe have a light lunch

see the storied Myrtle Beach!

The residential before the boardwalk

I am glad we did this as it gave us a chance to see how people lived.

We have decided that in our future trips to Costco

we would always make this a part of the ritual

driving first to the boardwalk

walk the distance between the two piers

have lunch and enjoy without haste!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – Jennie and Gerhard – morning walk

As the sun rises – breakfast and then a walk

Jennie and Gerhard – parents of our son in law Marcus.

We started the day with a sun rise and breakfast

and then set out to walk

we usually do 2 3/4 to 3 miles every day!

Walking the beach

We chose this condo for the view it offered

and being a 1/2 mile walk to get on the beach

where we walk 1 1/2 miles before heading back.

Fishermen – up and down the beach

There is hardly any one on the beach in the mornings.

Fishermen – joggers and walkers like us!

It makes for a pleasant walk

and not worrying about social distancing!

For the most part – in the open beach air

we do not wear our masks

unless we come across a whole bunch of people!

Then you try to walk around them at a distance!

Jenny looking for shells!

Walking in the surf – the water was warm

Quiet time – feeling the water and listening to the waves.

The beach here is very wide and firm

not many large shells and have seen no sand crabs!

Papa’s World – Flowers of Barefoot landing – S.C.

One of our places we like to wander about

in North Myrtle Beach S.C.

Is a place called Barefoot Landing

full of shops – boardwalks – small lakes –

places to eat – drinks to be had

music – outdoor activities


Everything in mid October is blooming!
The colors are just beautiful!

It takes me back to my childhood – Spring – Summer

in NWPA!

Mild climate then and flowers blooming!

Flowering bush – and potted trees!

Barefoot Landing? Well almost – sitting enjoying the sights and sounds!

Sherry – mid October and the decorations are out!

This tine of year I have always favored

crisp air – decorations – Fall is here!

But the beauty of Summer remains!
Fall decorations from Summer past
The noise of a water fountain – solitude of quiet thinking!
The beauty of Sun flowers – hay and pumpkins!
Reds – greens fading to yellow

While walking around while the ladies shopped

I could not help but snap some pictures

we loved flowers at our house

each year they would come back

colors of Spring into Summer and Fall

Social distancing at Barefoot Landing

Papas World -closing out a great week-real produce!

This past week – we had a guest – Sherry’s Sister!

So – we decided on her last full day –

we would take her to the giant Flea Market

And we would pick up fresh produce

before we went onto Boardwalk –

The Disney resorts

and finally Disney Springs!

Everything is FRESH!

We were here a couple weeks ago with Ella!

And we had stocked up-but were running low!

The prices are really good!

You have a multiple pick of different vendors

but prices are all the same!

We picked and selected from a half dozen vendors

according to what we liked –

but really – they were pretty much the same!

You can see some of the prices!

I think we spent $16.50 for a whole big bag full –

Radish – tomato- blackberries-strawberries – apples – etc.

We walked among the other vendors on our way out –

This is all from Florida

After we were done – we headed to the Disney Resorts

and stopped at Boardwalk – where we took the new Skyliner

to different resorts – all for free including the parking!

Cheers from Edison
at Disney Springs

We then made our way to Disney Springs

after seeing SEVEN different resorts

by riding the Skyliner – walking and a boat ride

and it cost us nothing!

What a way to see all that!

I got almost 17000 steps on my fit bit!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

dance the night away!

I told Sherry I really miss it down here!

On Wednesday – we took her to Big Bend Power Plant Park

To see the hundreds of Manatee’s

It was too cold to go into the water – although people were in the water

But she got to walk the white sand beaches

and see the Gulf!
