Papa’s World – Golfing Leopards Chase – Gold!

Good morning – a cloudy start to our day of golf with friends!

Leopards Chase – Gold course – situated in Ocean Ridge Plantation

Along with THREE other courses – all named after

Big Cats of Prey!

Cindy Sherry Buck on the green – now to select where we are putting from

We have decided to build a house – in the long run –

it will work out the same or cheaper than buying!

The market keeps going up for resales on houses

and we can build and have brand new for the same!

Cindy and Sherry – down the middle is normal for them – Cindy getting yardage to the pin!

And we will build right across the road from this and three other courses

in what is called Cameron Woods!

In fact within a 5 mile radius –

20 golf courses and two beaches

Ocean Isle beach and Sunset beach.

We had searched and searched – condos – houses- apartments

and by chance we found this – and the model –

Sherry once again had her dream home!

And it knocked off about 45 minutes for the drive back to NVA!

Sherry hitting off the middle to the green – water to the left!

All we are waiting for now is the plans to be final

and then a meeting with the construction manager

to go over those plans

and then a start and probable finish date

4 to 6 months start to finish!

By the time you are reading this

we will have already done that!

Buck and me – it was a great time to golf with friends on a very good course – to think there are three more in here and it is a mile from where we will live!
Cindy hitting fro the fairway to the green!

We love this area – the drive to both beaches is less than 15 minutes

Shopping is 6 minutes

Calabash is 15 minutes

and Route 17 is ten minutes.

Our friends house is about 30 to 40 minutes

And a lot of places to dine out on the I.C.W.!

We have extended our stay where we are until the end of June

hoping that the build will be done

We have to buy furniture and move what we have in storage

down here.

Cindy – Buck – Papa – Sherry we are golfing regular now – mostly with our friends – whom we have golfed with for about 30 years!
A lot of the golf cart paths run through the sand – we saw no gators but not sure if they are here or not – but saw signs for snakes!
Cindy and Sherry discussing their next shot as we let a twosome play through – these ladies are serious and hard to tie!

We did not want to go farther South –

we wanted a temperate climate

and still be 7 hours to home!

Bridge to number 18 – the final hole with waterfall!

We have found that place here – among the golf courses and beaches

but still only a 30 minute drive to North Myrtle Beach

which we have become fond of!

Number 18 – Leopards Chase – Gold Course!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

YES THEY BEAT US!

Papa’s World – sometimes it’s by accident you find a nugget

Good Morning

Exploring makes you hungry – and questioning – where do we stop ?

On this day we completely drove to and around Lake Tahoe – 180 miles !

While the ladies were up on top at Squaw Valley –

They overheard a conversation –

and our next destination was fixed –

A nugget in the El Dorado Mountains

First I must say – the California Gold Rush was in these mountains –

So much so – that this building was built in 1850 –

one year after that first gold was found

Right on top of what was known as THE THREE MILE MINE !

Entrance to the THREE MILE MINE

And – when we requested to eat in the cellar –

we were much surprised to find the entrance to said GOLD MINE

right next to where we were seated!

Sherry – Cindy – Buck

We were eating amongst historical fact!

SMITH FLAT HOUSE was the over heard conversation

and believe me when I say NO WHERE –

because with out GPS – we NEVER would of found it !

Bars on windows – 1850 !

The history here is GOLD WAS FOUND HERE !

And the mine shaft – tunnel runs three miles to the town court house !

Powder room

And in a room just past where we sat – all the mines POWDER was stored!

This also was one of the stops on the PONY EXPRESS !

And the Comstock Wagon Train Stop !

We had no idea when driving miles to find it

In fact – when we first arrived

we almost walked away –

There is a huge outdoor seating area – covered – but it was hot –

103 degrees hot – we had come off the mountains –

Sherry

And we could not find anyone to wait on us outside !

So – we decided to go inside just in case –

There was a big party going on

then we saw a sign that pointed down to the cellar

At that moment I caught the attention of a waiter

It was 3:00 PM. Dinner did not start until 4:00

But we could go downstairs

and order lunch !!!!!

The soft pine bar
where MARK TWAIN STOOD AND DRANK

That is when we found out the history –

MARK TWAIN was here!

This place has been serving food since the mid 1850’s !

And that food was what Sherry said the best CHEESE BURGER

she has EVER eaten – she does not eat them !

But she ate every crumb of that one !

Sometimes you find that nugget

If that conversation were not over heard

and if we had not had GPS

The nugget in them thar hills would not of been !

Sometimes it pays to listen and this was one of them !

SMITH FLAT HOUSE
PLACERVILLE CALIFORNIA
THREE MILE MINE
