Papa’s World – MUIR’S FOREST – Part two

GOOD MORNING

As we walked among the giants – the peace and quiet became evident –

from watching the man push his wife up the path in a wheel chair

to the lady who quietly said ” Would you like for me to take your picture ” ?

Buck – Cindy – Sherry and me

And that is how we managed to have a picture

with all of us standing inside this huge Redwood tree !

Tom

And then the tree that I hid inside and peaked out –

I am told that the really big Redwoods are further North

Where you can drive a car through –

To think this tree is between 600 and 1600 years old !

And then we entered Cathedral Grove –

Instantly all was quiet

Sherry – Buck – Cindy

A church like atmosphere –

everyone was hushed at the grand gathering of trees !

Walking among them – looking up and then ahead –

taking in the beauty of these giants !

Solitude – walking – looking – admiring – in awe !

Our day was coming to a close –

after nearly two hours walking among the trees

Time to gather and have a quick lunch

Time to say goodbye to Muir Forest – home of the giant Redwoods !

Papa’s World – The lone Cypress – Pebble Beach

Sherry & Tom

On our bucket list of things we have to do in Northern California –

See the LONE CYPRESS tree and sit on the balcony overlooking –

the 18 th. green at the World known PEBBLE BEACH !

CROSS THEM OFF !

Cindy & Sherry
Ethel and Lucy !

Many times I have watched the PGA

and the tournament held here every year – THE PRO AM !

One day I shall see it !

Sherry – SPY GLASS

We both are want to be golfers !

But in our World – just being on the course is enough !

The Ocean
Par three tee box
on the Ocean

The 17 mile drive – past SPY GLASS –

and a couple other courses –

the temps in the low 60’s – overcast – foggy –

just like you see on TV.

The beaches with cold water
Looking at the seals
SPY GLASS

The beauty of it all – each turn in the road – another view.

The view ever changing
Buck and Cindy

Walking through the sand – the beach – and just a little ways away –

another golf course hole –

close enough that you stand 20 feetf rom them teeing off !

All of that to come to this!
The lone Cypress
\

For over 250 years it has stood sentinel –

guarding the rocky shore –

becoming the Signature of PEBBLE BEACH GOLF COURSE !

One of the most famous pictures in the World !

Cindy

And then you make the right hand turn toward the Ocean –

and you are there –

Houses behind the 18th.green

And you have arrived at the famed Pebble Beach

and the 18th. green and the long Par Five fairway !

The dog leg left –

Many times I have watched the pros try to cut that corner –

Esp. Phil Mickleson –

only to have it go gracefully over the cliffs

and onto the beach or water !

The 18 th. green
Pebble Beach

The green guarded by two trees and sand traps –

that would be big trouble for me !

Since I generally hit the ball to the right and short –

no problem with the Ocean ! LOL

The 18 th.

Wishful thinking – can I play here ?

How much ?

Guess I have to delete that one from my fantasy bucket list !

But – we made it – 70 years and counting !

Do not know if I ever will get back here

CHEERS

But I can say I drank looking out at 18 –

it was a trip of a life time for me

Cross that one off !

Papa’s World – over 55 community – reality

It started a little over a year ago –

there has long been rumors –

There would be a over 55 community built along the lake !

GOOD MORNING

The site work has been ongoing for the last 16 to 24 months –

Then – about a year ago – building started !

Walking through the woods

One of the trails we walk – was extended –

and now it took us directly to the new community

about one mile from our home.

Nearing the lake

We could watch from the trail the construction starting –

but we could not walk around the lake as our trail ended.

Then – they opened it up – with gravel – then black top !

Close to seeing the lake



The beginning of the lake –

The town houses already built

As we progressed along the path –

the new huge clubhouse comes into view

The club house

The club house has both a indoor and out door pools –

along with two pickle ball courts !

There are conference rooms – activity center –

and covered veranda’s

Fishing dock and indoor pool area

There are already several different houses built

There are single family homes –

Town houses – Condo’s and four story townhouses!

Viewing from chairs placed around the lake

Construction is everywhere –

and now we can walk around the entire lake

Adding miles to our already existing 15 miles of trails.

View before the dam

The new name is BIRCHWOOD – over 55 community –

Brambleton Va.

They will have their own HOA

Hoping you enjoyed our new walk –

Papa’s World – geraniums – potato’s – Tower Gardens

It has been just a little over one month –

since we replanted the Geraniums-

that are now 4 or 5 years old !

For the first time – we have planted Potato’s !

Today – Sunday – 6-2-19

We also have for the second year –

a flower called –

THE EVENING PRIMROSE !

What is unique about that –

is it ONLY BLOOMS AT NIGHT !

EVENING PRIMROSE

The Tower Gardens are now in production for almost 5 weeks.

We have been eating lettuce since the end of week two.

Tower Garden number ONE
Tower Garden Number TWO

It will not be long as we have flowers for Tomato’s – Squash and Cucumbers

And Egg plant – herbs – other greens.

A first for us – Potato’s!

We have a total of 8 Potato plants –

this is the first time we have ever planted them !

Just saying !

We never had Green Thumbs

until we bought our first Tower Garden eight years ago !

And – really – it is so easy –

just make sure it has WATER & NUTRIENTS!

A very wise thought !

Now – I have learned – these are her babies –

she is known as the –

TOWER GARDEN QUEEN !

She has quite the following !

And – you can tell by the results –

I in turn – make sure they have WATER –

They have NUTRIENTS and the vines have a place to climb !

Geraniums – over five years old.
Geraniums over five years old.
Geraniums over five years old

Our Geraniums – I pull up in the Fall –

shake the dirt off –

Stick them right side up in a five gallon pail –

and hang them from ceiling in our unheated garage !

In the Spring – we pull them out –

clean the dead leaves off –

And pot them – water them and just watch them come back.

A good thought

I am in charge of the lawn outside – that is my time to just relax –

I rather like mowing – making it look nice and neat !

My side yard

We had a irrigation system put in two years ago –

and finally – this year –

It has recovered and grown in nice and green !

I have a lawn service and have lime spread in the Fall.

Tomato Plant

All in all – growing vegetables – seeing the colors of our flowers –

Is a form of stress relief for me.

The two Tower Gardens – all the Geraniums and Potato Plants

If you have any questions on the growing system

or bringing back the Geraniums from year to year –

Feel free to ask.

I hope you enjoyed my little blog –

Come back anytime to PAPA’S WORLD !
