Golf carts – hot chocolate – cookies and sheet music – it’s that time to once again sing Christmas songs in the community!
This is the season to be festive – we all met in our driveway – Solo Stove ablaze – music from the garage – this actually is the second year gathering together – and it has grown to around 15 souls!
Hot chocolate and cookies – and it was not too chilly!
Sherry – Kathy our neighbor and Diane – our other neighbor.
People mingled about before starting out to sing – three golf carts to help carry people – the rest walked.
I volunteered to stay behind and tend to the fire in the SOLO STOVE! They wouldn’t want me to sing – like an old hound dog! They were gone about an hour before they came back – regrouped and went to another part of the neighborhood.
We hope to make this an annual event – meeting at the community center when it is opened and finished.
Even the golf cart was decorated! It was a nice way to talk to friends and neighbors
and there were so many happy neighbors who came outside and even joined in – taking pictures – CAMERON WOODS COMMUNITY – OCEAN ISLE BEACH – NORTH CAROLINA – traditions being started!

PAPA’S WORLD – It’s the most wonderful time of the year –
Family from WPA – far away but close to our hearts – MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
While they live far away – they are always near our hearts – love them and hope they come back down again!
Back in NVA – the little ones as I call them – MORMOR and PAPA we are to them – they always want us to come home! It was hard leaving them as they were with us constantly – but so far the three little ones have been down twice for a week to two weeks being with us – memories – fun times and “WHAT ARE WE DOING NEXT”?
Before there was Bode – now they are mostly grown up or about to be teenagers – memories – memories – not forgotten – loving
Back just north of Winchester, Va. the oldest now – two in college – one in H.S. where has the time gone?
Two oldest played soccer in college – one her senior year this year – one a sophomore – the youngest a sophomore in H.S.
PAPA and SHERRY – family means a lot to us – memories of times gone past and memories of times to come!
CHRISTMAS DAY at our home – our first we have been here to celebrate – soon the young ones will come – MEMORIES!
CHRISTMAS – FAMILY – MEMORIES!

Tough choice – made easier by the drop back in 2020 for our 401K –
but also the increase in the value of the housing market!
We decided to sell – our daughter and family had moved – not far away – about thirty minutes on a good day of traffic!
But – before they were a mile away – we would pick up the little ones from school and have the youngest sometimes also.
It was an easy walk to their home and we spent a lot of time with them.
But it was the 401K – losing 30 plus % – yet the house gained more than that!
Another door had opened – an adventure awaited – we disclosed our plans – and we said we would be within an easy days drive
6 to 8 hours – but someplace warm and near a beach!
We also wanted to golf – for far less expensive than it was in NVA!
After a couple months of searching – we found our beaches – Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach – one four miles and the other six miles away – we wanted to stay on the mainland – and not in a flood zone – we found Cameron Woods Community.
We built our home – six to eight hours from our NVA families – they have come to visit numerous times and we have been back the same.
We live right across the street from four 18-hole golf courses and are within 30 minutes of another twenty-five!
We have new friends and neighbors – and are close to dear friends we have had for 35 years.
Our life had changed – we went through that door – it was not easy –
now we are in the twilight of our years – but every day brings new adventures and experiences.
A new day begins – another day to explore and live the Carolina life – thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD – OUR LIFE!

We choose this lot because of the sunrise and sunset from our driveway!
You look right to the East and left to the West!
We have been here going on fifteen months – and have had numerous sunrise and sunset skies
that is absolutely beautiful!
We are in OIB but on the mainland side – six miles to Sunset Beach and four miles to OIB.
Our backyard borders a protected area – it can not be developed or cut down – the second reason we chose this lot to build our new home!
This is now our third harvest since early spring – and are going on our second harvest of cucumbers!
She finally talked me into purchasing a grill and we often grill out here – we have no gas and the house is all electric – and electric stove tops we have found are hard to keep clean – thus I grill! LOL
Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD and SUNRISE FROM THE FRONT DRIVEWAY!

It was a warm evening – and the kids were excited – we made our way onto the island and found a spot to park right across the street from the pier – we carried our chairs to a grassy area next to the roadway – we were about to have front row seats!
