Papa’s World – the skies of Ocean Isle Beach – Cameron Woods – N.C.

The entrance to Cameron Woods walking from our home to the gate.

It is a quiet walk – not much traffic – no sidewalks or walking path – just the road.

At the entrance is the first phase – maybe 30 or 40 homes and the model.

Then – you look at the sky – and the clouds – before you head back to where we live .66 mile away.

There is only one house in the tall pines and live oaks along this route.

There are lots here sold but for whatever reason – no one is building on them –

so it reamins street lights and street signs – paved roads and empty of houses.

Then you arrive here – our brand new neighborhood – just over one year old.

This is pahse two and it is almost all sold out – phase three is having the infrasturcture put in –

and everyday – you have the clouds sweeping in from the ocean three miles away.

We have to drive some four miles to reach the causeway to cross over to OCEAN ISLE BEACH!

But we get these clouds almost anytime of the day!

Then bright sunshine – some rain and lightening shows with thunder!

Great for falling asleep at night – listening to it rain and thunder and flashes of lightening.
Just before the causeway to Ocean Isle Beach at Lowes parking lot!

Beyond those clouds is the light sky of the ocean.

And – it has been warm – mostly in the ’80’s but high humidity.

On the beach – you do not even feel hot!

And the water is warm!

Once again back home with the blue sky and white clouds.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – another beautiful sunrise and then a cool day of golf!

Waking up to this every morning – at the end of June – nine months of this – memories for a lifetime!
Golfing with our close friends at a golf course way out in the country of N.C.

We awoke to a beautiful sunrise – a bit chiily –

But the forecast called for low 50’s but Sunny!

It makes a big difference with hardly any wind!

As the Sun continues to rise – clouds form but are suppose to clear away!

I have come to accept here in S.C. – that the day changes dramatically

the higher the Sun gets in the sky!

So – you prepare for the day – getting a mental image in your mind

dress in layers – drink your coffee or tea

and know that the day – will turn out okay!

Another painted canvas by nature!

So it goes – sunrise – sunshine – cool but no wind – warmth.

A fine day to be alive and a fine day to golf with friends!

Papa’s World – Fluffy clouds – Rainbows – storms are coming – watching the sky

I am a sky watcher – the sunrise and clouds –

Planes – blue skies – and dark skies.

I watch as storms roll in – only to disappoint – no rain!

Since coming here to our daughters and son in laws house

it would take me two hands to count the number of times

I looked up and there it was – A RAINBOW!

No rain – but it must be in the distance!

Sometimes I was able to get a picture –

other times not!

Watching the skies – billowing clouds –

You think – is that going to be rain?

And then you see –

Another rainbow – no it does not seem like rain!

But then –

Through the sunlight – comes the rain –

and behind the house was the rainbow.

FLUFFY CLOUDS -RAINBOWS – STORMS ARE COMING –

WATCHING THE SKIES!

Papa’s World – the skies of a storm coming – beautiful!

I walked outside – we are staying with Tammy and Marcus.

They were on vacation – Sherry & I were alone.

Everywhere I looked to the sky –

was just awesome!

OUT FRONT FROM THE PORCH!

Sherry told me that she had a weather alert!

That is when I walked out onto the front porch.

I turned to the left and saw this after looking straight to the West.

Our new car parked alongside the road

as they were sealing the driveway the next day!

Then I walked to the edn of the porch and snapped this picture.

It was different in every direction!

I then went back inside and out the back door –

Again it was different!

There was yellow – orange – purple – blue – white – gray

and some deep pink!

The storm was suppose to start around 9 PM.

Flash flood alerts –

Stay off the roads –

High winds and take shelter!

The calm and beauty before the storm.

Later that night it hit –

Lightening – thunder and lots of rain.

I love a storm – and it will drum me to sleep!

And this one did!

Midnight – Sherry thought to wake me up and move the car.

The next day we were suppose to have the driveway sealed.

So – I had parked by the road and ditch.

She was worried the ditch would fill –

So – after trying to wake me up to no success

Off she went in the rain and moved the car back to the driveway!

She is a angel – me – for some reason I would not wake up!

We had FIVE INCHES OF RAIN IN THREE HOURS!

She had 18 alerts on road closings –

wash outs and rescues being taken – nine people!

I slept right through it!

The calm before the storm got me!

Always loved a good storm –

Next time I vow to be more alert!

Papas World – coffee – early morning – sunrise – my day!

I have always risen early – before the sun rises.

Usually by that time – I have already done my social media.

I have checked face book – my emails & my blog site.

I have had my first cup of two coffee’s!

Here in our base camp that I call home –

there is a glass sliding door that leads to a set of stairs.

I can see a rose bush and a tree –

black images againest a sky beginning to lighten up!

Dawn – orange colored with hints of light purple.

My time of day !

As I age – my time of sleep needed is about the same.

Here – my son in law is also a early riser.

He waters the back yard with his cup of coffee

while I read the morning paper and water the front yard.

The morning for me is what I love the most.

Like a painting – calm – serene – and a beginning of a new day.
