Papa’s World – MUIR’S FOREST – REDWOODS

Finally – after visiting Muir’s Beach – it was time to retrace our route

and back to the reserved parking lot – to visit THE REDWOODS !

MUIR’S FOREST IN THE DISTANCE

So many pictures – so much awesome forest and trees –

that I have decided to break this down into a series.

MUIR WOODS

I have never seen a forest such as this –

so pristine – so awesome –

But – in the middle of all this –

a flash from the past –

A PAY PHONE !

Buck and Tom

You look up and up and still up !

Upon entering – a telling of Muir Forest
The history

This forest has been here for

some say 1600 years at least !

The roots are shallow

It was explained to me – that this is the perfect storm so to speak.

One – between 42 and 68 degrees –

FOG – these are the only trees to absorb moisture through their leaves !

The protection from the winds in their valleys.

And – their root systems being shallow –

they intertwine with one another !

Sherry and Cindy

The Sun is hot -the shade is cool !

Buck
Cindy

I wonder why all the older trees hollow out on the bottom ?

INTERESTING

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

the Muir Forest Redwoods will continue.

Papa’s World – Muirs Beach

We were on our way for our appointment –

To enter Muir ‘s Forest to see the Redwoods –

when we got redirected to Muir’s Beach –

because we were 15 minutes early !

Good Morning

Not knowing anything about this –

It was another unexpected visit to something we had not planned !

Buck – Cindy and Sherry
in the parking lot of Muir’s Beach

Now we had to drive about ten minutes down the Mountain –

and it was FOGGY !

In the parking lot – I could see all these houses on the hill side

and the fog was just lifting.

Walk way to the beach

When he said beach -my first thought was –

there must be a small lake somewhere up here !

And when we got there

A cluster of houses dotted the hill side

Who lives way out here and how do they get food ?

How dumb was I ?

Well – this was no pond- lake –

It was a BEACH on the COVE of the OCEAN !

Muir’s Beach
Muir’s Beach

Now I understood why all the houses and there must be another road !

Muir’s Beach

We had been directed to the Ocean

and all the while we were in the mountains driving to Muir’s Forest

I had no idea on the other side of the mountain

we were that close !

Walking the dune

And there were people on the beach !

Cindy coming up from the beach
Tom & Buck

The view those houses had after the fog lifted –

later found out one of Sherry’s woman’s group

actually taught school there!

PAPA’S WORLD where friends and family meet

THANK YOU !

Papa’s World-Growing up Eldred Pa. – part Six.

GOOD MORNING

Eldred – a small community situated by the Allegheny River

Among the rolling hills know as the old mountain range

” The Allegheny Mountains “

I wrote a blog a short while ago –

about the title before there was ” STAND BY ME “

There was Eldred –

where everybody knows your name.

Bob – me ( Tom ) – Greg – Mike – John – Sully – Gerry – Gus and Pat

We were friends – we were buddies –

we had each others back

And we once took a little trip down that river .

Canoeing the Allegheny River
I believe our Sophomore year



Our little group grew and grew –

We were part of a national group known as The Exployer’s !

Raising money for our trips –

Staying out of trouble –

Almost all of my buddies belonged

And the younger kids started to follow.

Me – number 65

We played sports –

we were not into trouble –

we did not smoke – which back then was a big deal !

A few who did got kicked off the team.

We lived – played and grew up in a small Western Pa. town

close to the South Western New York border

where every one knew your name

In all the years before – and the years since –

The faces have changed –

the names also –

but to this day it remains

North Main Street

The little town – where every one knew your name

South Main Street

Of ELDRED PA .

PAPA’S WORLD

GROWING UP – ELDRED PA.

Before there was STAND BY ME –

There was ELDRED PA.

Papa’s World – ” FENNY ” the love bird – Sarah’s bird

This week – we are babysitting –

well ” BIRD SITTING ” !

GOOD MORNING

Welcome to our World – just another day in my life !

The Myers family went on vacation –

and when you are reading this –

they have already gone come back !

FENNY THE LOVE BIRD

So – we are taking care of Sarah’s Love Bird called FENNY !

I have no idea if it is a HE or She –

But I do know he or she misses her !

We played a recording of Sarah’s voice

and he or she reacted right away.

When we walked away –

he or she started chirping like crazy !

FENNY

Of course Fenny just loves to tear paper apart –

and there are all these toys hanging from inside the cage.

Our instructions were multitude from when he or she is naughty –

To when to give he or she a treat –

to a bath using a spray bottle

( think we will skip that one )

SARAH

Being the youngest in the Myers family –

She is also the first to have a pet !

Mike – the Daddy –

can not be around any kind of animal –

He is highly allergic to them and can’t breath.

But – this seems to be working out just fine.

Now – I am not much on birds –

but I find myself stopping –

and whistling to him or her ! LOL

He or she cocks her or his head –

and after I am done –

will chirp back !

SARAH

This week will be different –

When I go upstairs between 8:30 and 9:00 PM.

I put the cover over the cage –

He or She settles right down –

Instruction number eight

was his or her bedtime is 8:30 PM.

FENNY IS EASIER !

All in all – so far it has been interesting –

He or she whistles or chirps –

I whistle or chirp back –

We both seem to have come to a understanding of each other !

My thank you note to Sarah –

thank you for sharing Fenny –

He or she came into my life –

LIFE IS A GIFT –

LIVE EACH DAY

AS A THANK YOU NOTE !
