Papa’s World – enjoying a sunny day at Tanger outlets

A day just shopping and watching – sitting in the sun – drinking a coffee – watching people!

Being retired – when Sherry asks – “Do you want to go shopping”?

I jump up and say “WHEN & WHERE”!

I know I am going to like just waiting and watching people!

Shoes – shorts – shirt – no problems!

We drove about 20 minutes down rte. 17 – to Tanger Outlets!

Every store imaginable – my favorite shoe store – Sketchers!

And a Starbucks – for a sipping coffee!

Who would of known one year ago – I would be sitting outside

in November – sun – warmth – 75 degrees –

Palm trees and Christmas decorations!

Christmas tree decorated among the Palms!

For your information – I love warm weather

I am not a fan of ice – and snow and cold!

I gave my snow shovel away!

Red bows – garlands – lights – and Christmas songs playing – this is my type of holiday!

Someday I would like to share this with our family – holidays in the Sun!

Palm tree= warm sunshine – Christmas tree – red bows – people watching – Holidays in the South!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – walking historic Winter Haven

One thing we most wanted in our AIRBNB

We had to have access to walking

And there had to be things to walk to!

This – we have – as we walk everyday –

and it is mostly warm – shaded – and sun

And safe to walk about!

View from our front entrance
facing toward
the Old Town
of Winter Haven Fla.

We could walk a block and we were

in a redeveloped park – with benches and lots of shade!

This section has all been upgraded

pastel brick painted

bright colors

The old buildings
made of brick
painted and trimmed out
full of different stores
One of four different streets
with the coffee shop
and library at the end
of the street

In this picture – the park is at the left

and in total runs a good four blocks

At the end of the park
in the direction left
is a lake where every
third Saturday
is a ski show
put on by Cypress Gardens!
A ski jump
in the lake for the show
Part of the area
for the ski show

And YES – there are gators in these lakes!

However – we never saw any here!

I would not go swimming
or wading here
they say go to the middle of the lakes
to swim or water ski
but I will pass!

However – the views are awesome!

And we walked here often!

The trees are green
with flowers
almost all of them
This was laying
on the ground
and was really soft

In the opposite direction

we often walked more

simply because all the stores

bars and restaurants

saloons and barber shops

a lot of either one

and the smells of lunch – dinner

and music!

The entrance to the library
to the right
and our favorite coffee shop
to the left
Where Ella would have a
chocolate chip cookie!

We would stop every evening

for a small coffee and ice tea

and just sit and watch the sunset

One of the many fountains
in the park

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

After our daily walk
back to the confines
of our rental
and looking forward to our next walk!
