Our Condo in Ocean Keyes – North Myrtle Beach – found simply by accident – and now almost nine months later –
We will move out and into our new home – if the closing is on time!
But – here is what we look at each morning – the lake – the wild fowl – the houses – the fountains – trees –
I love the rees!
All or most of the family has come down – Mike and Maddy have not made it here.
The little ones love to explore – play on the playground at Barefoot Landing.
Family is really important to us – and keeping the time to get here manageable!
In our new home it will be six hours for one family and almost seven hours for the other.
They can drive in one day and be here early enough to enjoy!
Family time – beach – exploring – warm weather – new home – new neighborhood.
Sarah wants to act – design – fashion – dance – no sports for her – although I secretly believe she would be awesome – still growing – Ella at 5′ 81/2 ” – I think she will be taller – and Taylor will be tallest of all – only 10 years old!
Family means a great deal to us – even though we are down here – they have visited and we have gone home several times – staying in each family homes with them.

ON THE AUTUMN OF LIFE – SUNRISES – FAMILY PART THREE WILL BE NEXT!
PAPA’S WORLD – WHERE FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS – FRIENDS MEET FAMILY!
NETWORK MARKING for The Juice Plus Company. 15 years – retired from corp. America – TEAM LEADER
This is all part of the Shenandoah Museum complex in Winchester Va. A hiking trail – through the woods.
The pathway is very wide – I would guess eight feet and all made up with crushed limestone! There are benches to sit on the entire walkway – and areas to sit quietly – a really nice walk and easy on the feet!

Maddy has been named to third team in her conference playing soccer – as a Sophomore she was in the top five on her team in four different categories –
Ella – is playing her last soccer for her senior year – undefeated – and aiming for states. She is one of five or six off her team to have signed letters of intent to play in college – she will be attending Randolph College and in the same conference as Maddy.
As the years passed – Sarah came along – the baby little sister – always making the older two laugh.
She has a way about her – always the forefront of fashion.
Wants her grandma to take her to N.Y.C. to see Broadway and shows!
I miss those special times – all three sitting at the top of the stairs – waiting for their parents to get up – smiling – laughing – such great kids and polite.
Today – we are scattered – us being in S.C. Maddy – coming home from Lynchburg Va.
Ella completing her senior year of H.S. and Sarah about to enter H.S.
Thinking back to the early years – the smallest one out there with a skill set – determination and quickness. I always thought she should of gone into track as she ran a 5:40 mile and did not train much!
Now – today all three are so tall – athletic – Maddy at 5 ‘ 6″ Ella at 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah almost to 5’ 8″ ( 15 years old soon)
I miss those days of the three little ones – giggling – laughing – on the trampoline – hiking – soccer – dance – running –
being little girls – climbing up into my lap – singing songs as I picked them up!
We had so much to pack in so little time – touring – seeing the house – Mother’s day – catching up – FRIENDS!
They could see this pier from their beach so we decided to drive to it and just take a look around.
We would walk up the beach and past this pier to the campground.
So we knew what was here and have many fond memories of her parents – sister and my sister and brother in law here. We also spent vacation time here with friends Steve and Elaine. Our friends from back home in WNY!
Here we are at The Crooked Hammock Brewery in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.
We have come to really like this place and Sherry actually likes some of the beer!
So – the plan was made – golf nine – eat dinner and then go home!
We could of stayed with them – but – lugging all the stuff I need – my sleep machine etc. just easier to drive the hour plus drive back to the condo – besides – plenty of more times exist in the future!
We played our scramble format – Buck and me – they played best ball – WE LOST!
Now – we lost two holes to them – one by one stroke and one by two strokes!
We play even up – and we tied the other seven holes.
But – on the hole we lost by one stroke – we parred – they birdied!
On the one we lost by two strokes – they parred and we four putted – just the way it goes!
We have played this format for years and years – we at one time played couples vs couple – then we played mixed couple vs. mixed couple – but the gals challenged us – the other ways split pretty even – this way – THEY WIN!
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS PAPA’S WORLD living life to the fullest
I have wanted to stop in here and have lunch ever since we got here on 10-1-20!
It is a local place right on the beach in North Myrtle Beach!
These places always catch my eye – I just get a feeling about them!
They generally have good food and live music –
and this day – the food was great – a salad with grilled fish – and the music?
Well – right across the street is a block long and a block wide vacant lot –
And it was packed with tents – you could rent – and thousand of people!
A huge stage and three bands playing for six hours!
WE WERE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE OPENING OF NORTH MYRTLE BEACH MUSIC FESTIVAL!
It is the first major event sanctioned by the town government since the start of the pandemic 14 months ago!
And people were out and about in golf carts – cars – trucks and just walking!
This was roped off and a charge to enter – you could rent out a canopy – and carry in drinks and food!
I would say – inside – a thousand people – or more – I guess this is the fourth one they have had like this over the years – and the radio station was there and it also was broadcasting from the beach which was just as crowded!
We tried to walk the beach – but it was really crowed and full of young people – all right next to each other!
This area is pretty much not locked down – and you could tell the tourist season has begun!
I am happy for the the store owners who have suffered so much – many shut the doors and will not return.
But – we decided this was way too crowed for us – so we returned to the music and walked toward our condo.
